Fast, non contact, easy to use!
Pros Fast! A temperature reading is given within a second of pressing the button. Great for those times in the middle of the night when you need a temperature reading asap! Non contact - you only have to point the thermometer at the temple or behind the ear. No more struggling to get a thermometer inside a baby’s mouth, under their arm or in their bum! You can even take the temperature of a sleeping baby! The non contact nature means it is hygienic and safe to use for multiple members of the family. Large screen - easily able to read the temperature reading Coloured display - the thermometer displays three different coloured screens depending on the reading. Green, Orange and Red. Again, great for those times in the middle of the night when you are half asleep trying to take your little one’s temperature. Other features - it is able to store previously recorded temperatures, and the temperature of “objects” ie bath water/baby bottles, comes with batteries and a hard case Price - at only $99 (and I have seen it on sale for cheaper), it saves a lot of frustration. We had already gone through two cheap $12 thermometers before we got this one. Cons Accuracy - I often get different readings for different sides of the head/locations behind the ear. They are still within half a degree so it’s nothing to really worry about. I have gotten into the habit of taking a few readings and then averaging them out. (which the instructions recommend anyway) Size - Its definitely bulkier than a normal digital probe thermometer and doesn’t fit as easily into my nappy bag and so I probably won’t take it around with me as much as I did the digital probe. Overall, this is a wonderful thermometer, and has already saved us lots of frustration and I would definitely recommend buying one for yourself or for another parent!
