Baby's Got a Temp

My daughter has been sick the last few days so we headed to the doc to check things out. After talking about her temperature with both the doctor and nurse, I learned that ear thermometers are not very good at all. Go figure - that's why I was getting a different reading from ear to ear. They said the most accurate way to take a child's temp is with a thermometer that goes in the mouth or bum (yikes - that wouldn't go over well). So save your money and get an old school thermometer rather than buying these fancy digital ones that aren't so great.
