***Ear thermometers are generally quick, safe, and not uncomfortable. However, they are usually trickier to use than other methods. You must insert the ear thermometer at the right angle so the reading is not obstructed by the ear canal, and you must also make sure that there is not too much earwax obstructing the reading. Ear thermometers are not recommended for babies under 6 months old.
This thermometer has a margin of error of +/- 0.2°C or +/- 0.4°F (for temperactures between 36°C to 39°C / 96.8°F to 102.2°F)
Rectal Reading is recommended for a most accurate reading for newborns to 3 month old. Underarm and temporal is recommended for babies 3 months old to 4 years old. Ear is recommended for babies 6 months to years. Oral is recommended for children 4 years and older. Rectal reading is always the most accurate. It is a good idea when starting, to check the accuracy of the other readings by referring to the rectal.
