I always did underarm first. If I was considering taking her in, I'd do rectal. I had little attachments that were special for each body part. But then I didn't replace those batteries and just used a normal one.

Now I just use a temporal one and I love love love it.

Turns out I always think she has a fever. Turns out I'm wrong a lot.

So, highly recommended when they get older

Re: What is the best way to take an infant's temperature?

Everyone on DS's medical team always says under the arm. The children's hospital does it on his arm.

For Delaney? I'd do it rectally. I'd want accurate.
