    My braun ear thermometer died for no reason. Changed the batteries but it seems it's off by .5 degrees. Anyway used the free one from Wellcome (Kuhn Rikon) tolerable, off by .1-.3 degrees. Safety first digital thermometer is good for non squirming babies. But I found a really good one. Beurer Pacifier Thermometer for babies and the forehead thermometer for kids/adults. They are accurate and very easy to use. Finally, I also bought the old fashioned mercurial thermometers. I got the ones from Watson but found it too difficult to use or rather easy to make a mistake. Found another mercurial at the Chinese Dept Store. So far so good.

    I like the mothercare digital one. Not had any issues with it, at least so far!

    for a baby a regular digital thermometer under the arm is best, it is very difficult to get a good seal with an ear thermometer on children under 2 and then you won't have an acurate reading

    I'm looking for a digital thermometer for a newborn baby as well. Is there any new recommendation?

    is the digital thermeter used in the bottom? my doctor recommended that I buy one of those and use both the braun one and that digial one interchangebley because apparently if you use it wrong (the ear one), the temperature can be off by 0.5 and in a case of emergency that's a lot....so then I could use the bottom thermometer for increased accuracy...I guess for confirmation (so sorry I sound paranoid...but my daughter just had a febrile convulsion and it's just too scary to want to live through again...)

    thanks! :)
