The age of the infant must be taken into consideration. This is because very young infants and toddlers might choke on oral thermometers unless it is one that is a specially designed baby thermometer. Very young babies need either a rectal thermometer , Baby Thermometer or an instant ear thermometer. Many times rectal thermometers are impractical, especially if the child is already flailing his limbs and screaming. Ear thermometers cannot be used in cases of ear infections when the ear canal is inflamed and inserting the probe would either not fit or cause extreme discomfort. This is why it is important to have a supply of a variety of thermometers, including baby thermometer.
One of the benefits of a baby thermometer is that the child is more likely to keep it in his mouth for the duration of the temperature-taking process. Parents appreciate the fact that these quiet the crying of an uncomfortable baby.
