Physicians don't recommend using a rectal thermometer any longer. Instead, they prefer that you take the temperature of a baby under their arm. Lift their arm and place the thermometer in the armpit. Hold their arm down gently to keep the thermometer in place. A digital one works great and will let you know when it is complete.
