My kids are 4 and 6 and we've been using the temporal artery thermometer (forehead). Just wondering what's the best because my 4 year old has had a fever. I just took her temp and it was 104.8. Then I waited the 30 seconds it says to, took it again and it was 100.8. It always varies by a degree or 2, which is totally annoying, but never 4 whole degrees!
I'm not too concerned b/c she's acting fine but we have a dr appt in an hour anyway...I'm going to ask them.

I have one that can go from mouth, to underarm to rectal. I always take Kinley's temp (shes 2.5) her in rectum because it is always accurate...plus she won't stay still for one in her mouth or under her arm.
