Im one mother who totally freaks out when my LO has fever. I have to check her temperature often. My pediatrician told me that the best way to check temperature is to place the back of your palm on your kids stomach. But the most accurate reading is definitely obtained by using the thermometer. We first used a digital thermometer and the readings were taken from the underarm.
We all know how disturbing it would be for a baby while sleeping and also it takes so long to give you the accurate reading. So I was determined to get a ear thermometer as its the most accurate and easy to use. My cousin who has a 12 year old daughter still uses it. So it goes a long way.
Why should you buy Chicco ear thermometer (from their website):
