The Most Accurate Way to Take Your Child's Temperature? Find Out! by Dr. Hannah Chow-Johnson
It’s important to get an accurate read of your child’s temperature when he or she is sick. I know this is no easy task. First, kids aren’t a fan of the process. Second, there are a lot of thermometers on the market. They range from all kinds of bells and whistles to the pretty simple, old-fashioned style.
I personally think digital thermometers are easiest to read, and anything to help make life a little easier for parents is a good thing. Also, I only recommend oral or rectal thermometers. I know kids aren’t a fan of either, but they really are the most accurate.
