Babies get sick very fast and go from bad to worse quickly. You need to have this on hand and not wait for them to have a cold, ear infection or something you don't know what it is. If they show signs of illness, monitor their temperature. Call the doctor if it is going higher. Babies can become critically ill within minutes. A temperature baseline can ease your worries or alert you to move fast to the emergency room or the telephone.
My pregnant daughter tested. Took five minutes but then she didnt have a fever so maybe it might work quicker with the fevers I would assume. Worked well, just took longer than expected but for the money its well worth it. I would use this for slight fevers or fevers you not sure are really present. I would probably not chance it for a high fever unless it was an only option.
When I came across this item I couldn’t believe I had never seen one! Such an ingenious idea and for having worked in an infant room at a daycare for almost 10 years I’m kind of upset I didn’t think of it first lol! Anyway, gifted to my brother and sister-in-law who are expecting and they also agree it’s a great idea. Hopefully it works great and for the price it’s wirth a shot!
This thermometer is the BEST! Parents, you know the struggle of wrestling with our infant/toddler and trying to jam a stick in their throat to tell you if they have a fever. I want to kick myself for not having thought of this handy little gadget. You just press the power button, shove it in the kid's mouth and within a minute, you have the child's temerature and the child is just happily sucking away. It even lights up so you can easily read the temp at night without disrupting your babie's sleep. SO AWESOME!
Being a first time mom I was extremely paranoid about purchasing the “right” thermometer. This 1 is great. It reads quickly and isn’t harmful to the baby. I love how it comes with a cover too
Works great. This is a second time purchase for our family. I had one when my son was a baby, he’s now almost 7. We passed the first one down to a family member. When I found out I was expecting my daughter, this was on my must have list.
Works well for if you don’t want to do a rectal temperature. Reads pretty quick but when my son isn’t feeling well that doesn’t matter because all he wants is his pacifier anyway. Stays lit for a long time so you can make sure you read the temp ok. Does beep as well when done taking temperature
Love this! I like how I can take my baby’s temp without all the fuss
