All parents require a reliable thermometer in the medicine cabinet for tracking the temperature of sick kids, to help decide if it's time to call the doctor or confirm that medications are working. Our selection designed specifically for children includes a variety of sensing methods, from ear to rectal, so that you can find one to suit your family's individual needs. When users buy our independently chosen editorial recommendations, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

We evaluated choices that struck a balance between accuracy and comfort for both the parent and child. The iProven DMT was rated first because it has a proven track record for accuracy and can be used multiple ways.
