Re: question about 3 month old and temperatures

My dd was sick quite a bit as a young baby. She even had a spinal tap at 5.5 weeks old because of a fever. I would recommend you learn to take a rectal temperature. It is easy and most accurate.

If that freaks you out, my pedi recommended the temporal thermometer that you press onto their forehead. I got one at Babies R Us for $30. He says it is very accurate...they use them in the Drs office.
