Quoting Anna. Mommy of two boys:" under two they usualy do rectal temperature "


Yeah that's how I take hers. At the hospital they do the forehead one so I don't know which to go by. I have a forehead and rectal thermometers.

Don't trust their forehead ones! They rooms kadens temp and it said 100, rajanee took it rectally and it said 105. She also doesn't recommend medicating until 102

OMG. Yeah this was just a random ER dr guy. But I usually take hers rectally just because I've always been told it's more accurate this young. And I haven't really worried about fever in her anyway because she's teething SOO bad (they're actually cutting now :( ) that I've been giving her tylenol for that because nothing else is helping. But I'm going to keep an eye on her temp once I get the thermometer (I always forget it at my mom's :roll: ) but honestly she actually felt cool when I kissed and felt her forehead.
