I cannot seem to find a good mirror for the car to see my baby. It seems like none of them have good reviews. Does anyone have a recommendation of a good one?

Also, what kind of thermometer is the best to use on babies? I have an ear thermometer on my registry but wasn't sure how easy those are to use on a LO. Are the pacifier ones any good?

TIA!

I've always heard not to use the mirrors since they can become a hazard if you're in an accident, we never used one and didn't seem to need it. If we were on a long car trip one of us just sat in the back seat with her.

I've always liked our ear thermometer. We also had an underarm/rectal thermometer that I like too. I've always heard the pacifier ones aren't very accurate.

We never used a mirror. I just put the baby behind the passenger seat. I can look back at her if I need too.

We used a regular digital thermometer for her. We just took her temp under her arm.

I'm not sure about the mirror, but I've heard that rectal thermometers are the most accurate. We're going to go with this one by Vicks. It's gotten great reviews.

Wow it does have great reviews! I might go with this one instead although for some reason it still makes me a little nervous to use a rectal thermometer, but i'm sure that's just because i've never used one before.

I never used a mirror, but rectal thermometers are the best to use for babies (and get a little thing of KY just in case) but they also have temporal (sp) thermometers now....the ones that do it on the forehead....

This is the thermometer we have, and it's great! Rectal is definitely the most accurate in infants. You can't go wrong with this one because the tip is so small. I just kept a little jar of vaseline with the thermometer.

I had a car mirror, but it never stayed in place. The firemen who installed our carseat recommended not using one because it can become a hazard if you're in an accident. I won't be using a mirror this time.

the ear ones don't work well on babies since their canals are so different, I just bought a temporal artery one though I still have to practice using it (must do it right or your readings will be messed up) I will use that if I suspect a fever but will always double check with the vicks rectal if I think she actually has one as it's the most accurate (and they are tiny and easy to use, no worries baby won't even notice).

No advice on mirrors, I'm sure anything I used with DD isn't even out anymore.
