How to Take Baby's Body Tempreture Rectally?
Step 1, To prepare the thermometer, clean the end with rubbing alcohol or a little soap and warm water. Rinse with cool water. Then coat the end with a little petroleum jelly for easier insertion.
Step 2, Place your baby on her back, on the bed or on a changing table, with her legs bent to her chest. Your baby is likely to be comfortable in this position, since she's used to lying that way for diaper changes. And you'll be able to distract her if she can see your face. Alternatively, though, you can hold your baby across your lap, tummy down and bottom up, letting her legs dangle over the side of your thigh.
Step 3, Press the thermometer button to turn it on. Gently insert the bulb about three-quarters of an inch to an inch (2 to 2.5 centimeters) into her rectum, or until the tip of the thermometer disappears.
Step 4, Keep a firm grip on her buttocks by cupping them with the palm and fingers of the hand that's holding the thermometer. Don't let go of the thermometer, because it may not stay in place if your baby starts wriggling.
Step 5, When the thermometer beeps, remove it and read your baby's temperature. Inserting anything into your baby's rectum can stimulate her bowels, so don't be surprised if she poops when you take the thermometer out. Clean the thermometer with soapy water or rubbing alcohol, then rinse and dry before storing.
