While a great thermometer I find it to be hard for many people use on infants and toddlers. Since they dont know you have to gently pull their ear lobes down in order to get an accurate reading. For infants and toddler I'd stick to a temporal (forehead) thermometer and save the ear thermometer for the big kids. Plus of you're a worried first time mom you'll run out of covers quickly and it won't work without them.
I thinks this is best most accurate thermometer you can get for price and quality. It is the same thermometer used by my sons pediatrician, so it must be good, right? I haven’t experienced any issues with it and it seems to match up well with other thermometers of higher price. The only con I see is the screen doesn’t light up which makes it hard to take a temperature at night without having a light on.
We purchased this thermometer from Walgreens, it was more expensive but it worked great for us! Our 2 year old had an ear infection and in the middle of his medicine he got a really high fever (high for mom we haven’t seen it that high). It worked great for our guy! We didn’t have to wake him up and he did so well when he was awake when we took his temperature!
When my husband came home with this I was so upset with him. “How could you spend so much money on a thermometer? The kids barely take me take their temperature with the one that we have” I thought. Ha I was wrong! I actually love this thing and the kids too it takes your temperature so fast. It’s easy to use and clean. I love it. 100% recommended
When it is effective, extremely useful. Compared to the anal thermometer, according to our doctor’s office this is the most effective thermometer, it is extremely accurately however it gives me the POS error message SO often which is very annoying. Even when I change positions, it is just a very finicky thermometer. Especially with a moving baby.
We’ve luckily only had to use this a few times, but it was very easy and quick to use. It even came with some covers for the tip for sanitation purposes which I love. Overall we are highly satisfied especially with how quick and accurate the thermometer assesses our little girl’s temperature.
This wasn't the thermometer I had when my toddlers were babies, but I wish it was. It's so easy to use, I like it much more than the exergen temporal scanner (which is what I used before). It's also the kind that the doctor uses so if it's good enough for them, it's good enough for me.
Took off a star because I will take her temperature twice in the same air and I’ll give me two different readings both are fairly similar but still a little off but would still recommend even though it is kind of pricey thinking about purchasing the four head one
Love this thermometer. Very accurate, easy to use and fast. My son isn’t very fond of getting his temperature being taken so this fast working thermometer makes it easier for me to take his temperature. Very reliable product
I love this product. I use is every time that my family is sick. I can trust the temp is correct. I have had it for about 3 years now and its still going strong. I highly recommend this to any new parent to use. its easy to read screen is great. Its also not very expensive!
