Congratulations on your purchase of the Vicks Digital Pacifier Thermometer. Please read these
instructions carefully to ensure accurate temperatures and safe operation. When used properly, this high
quality product will give you years of accurate, dependable service.

WARNING: The Vicks Pacifier Thermometer is intended for use with children ages five and under.
1. THIS UNIT IS A MEDICAL DEVICE and is not designed for use as a regular pacifier. Store out of

reach of children. Do not let children play with the unit. TEMPERATURE SHOULD BE TAKEN

2. Any pacifier wears out. TO PREVENT POSSIBLE CHOKING HAZARD, test the strength of the

nipple by pulling on the bulb portion before each use.

3. Examine the pacifier bulb before each use for cracks, tears, tackiness or other signs of wear. Discard

a worn unit immediately.

4. Components may be harmful if swallowed. Contact your physician immediately should this occur.
5. FOR ORAL USE ONLY. Do not measure temperature at any other site.
6. The thermometer nipple comes in one size (medium) intended to fit most mouth sizes. Please gauge

your child’s mouth size and the nipple size prior to thermometer use. A child using a nipple that is
too large has an increased risk of choking.

7. Do not attempt to disassemble the unit. There are no user serviceable parts inside. The battery is not

window (

is discharged.

8. Do not wash the unit with any thinner or chemical solvent.
9. Do not store unit in direct sunlight or at high temperature.

This pacifier is for oral use only. Oral temperature readings are often approximately 1°F lower than actual
body temperature readings (Rectal Readings) and 1°F higher than axillary (under the arm) readings.

Temperature readings vary from child to child. Although there is no singular ‘normal’ temperature reading,
a temperature taken orally ranging between 97°F and 100°F is considered normal. Your child’s physician
should be consulted to determine what temperature range the physician considers to be normal.

The best method to determine your child’s normal temperature is to use the thermometer when the child
is feeling well. Record readings twice a day (early morning and late afternoon). Take the average of the
two temperatures to calculate a normal body temperature.

Press the power button. The display will read (188.8



) confirming that the display is working.

2. If you hold the on/off button down, the unit will display the last temperature reading.
3. Release the power button and the display will show L°F with °F flashing. When the temperature

reading reaches 89.6° or more, the display will show an actual temperature.

4. Position the pacifier bulb in child’s mouth. Note: Drinking or eating prior to use may affect reading.

Measurement should be taken one half hour after eating or drinking.
