: My boy has his first fever. It's running between 100.8 and 102. I have been taking his temperature with a pacifier thermometer. But someone told me yesterday that there not accurate. My books don't mention them, does any one know the accuracy? Also, I have not taken his temp rectally. I'm a little scared too he's very wiggly and doesn't hold still, but should I try to take it that way?

: Thanks

A temperature taken rectally is the most accurate.
