A digital thermometer is a device that you use to check the temperature of the body. When your baby is showing signs of a fever, the first thing that you will resort to is a thermometer to check your baby’s temperature.

However, taking a baby’s temperature can be confusing to first-time parents. Having a good understanding of the different types of thermometers will help you to make the right choice.

You will need to place this thermometer in your child’s armpit for close to a minute to get an accurate temperature. Most of these digital thermometers come with manufacturer’s instruction which makes them easy to use.

Digital Forehead thermometer::

The forehead thermometer takes a reading by scanning the temporal artery of the forehead. The thermometer will read the infrared heat that comes from the head to determine the baby temperature. A forehead thermometer is the most convenient.

Glass and mercury thermometer: :

This type of thermometer consists of a tubular glass with mercury inside. It works by placing the thermometer beneath the tongue of the baby to record the temperature.
