Re: What is the best way to take an infant's temperature?
For the first 2 or 3, I'd take the temp rectally because fevers are much more serious in a baby that little, and I need to have an accurate reading. After that, I take temps under arm or something. My 9 month old had her first fever a week or so ago, and never felt I needed to check her temp rectally, I had enough info from the under arm measurement.
