The conventional mercury based glass thermometers are a bit tricky and risky to use with babies as they can break with a sudden jerk. Thus we will not discuss them here. Also mouth, rectal and arm pits all are no-go zones as per babies. However these are still the places that provide the most accurate reading.
Today we have various types of thermometers available in the market which provide easier ways to take a babies (or an adults) temperature.
- Touch based Forehead Thermometer
- In-Ear Infrared Thermometer
