    a pacifier thermomter is not accurate.Your tongue will always be cooler than the rest of you. Ear thermamter are not that great for babies either as it is very difficult to get a proper seal in the ear canel with a baby, and therefore it probably won't be acurate. Just get a regular digital thermomter for uner arm.

    i have the braun ear thermometer. I like it very much cuz i can get my baby's temperature in seconds. As capital mentioned it won't be as accuate, but i think pretty much should be around that temperature.

    I have got the ear thermometer, but I find it quite difficult to handle, cos' you need to pull her ear, so the ear canal is straight and direct to the ear-drum.

    Then later I discovered a forehead thermometer at Chicco. It is quite costly when compared to other devices (~ HK$700), but it's really easy to handle.

    I totally agreed with Alice, I also got an ear thermometer and the Chicco forehead thermometer. With the ear one, I can never got the right temperature reading as my son hates anything poking into his ears (even when asleep). With the forehead thermometer, its much much easier as it is non intrusive.

    Also, if you are Pampers BB club member, you can get the Chicco forehead thermometer at a discounted price of HK$ 398. I think that even if you are not a Pampers BB club member, some of the sales person will give you the discount if you ask them about it. I got my discount without showing them my Pampers membership card.
