As a parent, I'd be extremely upset if I found out my daycare provider was taking my child's temperature rectally. When we attended baby care class before our daughter was born, the nurse told us not to even attempt to take a rectal temp, because it could result in serious injury. I don't do it, and I do not want anyone else doing it, either. Why not just take it under the arm, as the previous poster suggested, or buy a thermometer that works in the ear or on the forehead?
