i have bought different kinds. the armpit one, the one for the ear, the forehead one (where you have to rub it on baby's forehead from one side to another), the one with the laser, and the last one is the contactless forehead thermometer ... that you typically see being used at hospitals entrances when we had the h1n1 flu scare .
it looks something like this, and that's the one that we use now.
because when the baby is sick, which is when we need the thermometer the most... my baby doesnt like any foreign stuff touching him. so contactless is the way to go.
the laser is far too complicated and we always get an error in reading.
