This thermometer was always accurate and easy to use. Be sure to get it in their ear just right, otherwise the reading won't be as accurate. I like using the disposable covers for cleanliness and I would recommend this thermometer to others. I used mine for 5.5 years before it broke, so it is worth the investment.

We just got one of these since having a new baby a few months ago and we love it. I find myself using it on everyone in the house. It's fairly affordable and it's no fuss. I don't have to stick it under a sick kids tongue and fight with the plastic. It's super easy and gives an accurate reading.

Its always given me a pretty accurate reading. It is quick wich is fantastic when your trying to hold a sick and flopping tantruming kid still enough long enough to get a temp. I like that it has covers that are disposable and that they are stored in the holder with the thermometer itself

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.

Oh my gosh, y'all. Don't mess around with any other thermometer. Babies and toddlers are notoriously fussy and squirmy when they're sick, and nobody's in a hurry to stick a thermometer up a butt. This thing is accurate and SO FAST. I give it to all my expecting friends!

This is a great thermometer! It's so quick and easy to use on yourself or on anyone and I love that you can get the disposable things for each use. It's accurate most of the time unless you're doing it wrong. I think this is a great product to have in any household!

This is an affordable thermometer when you need something easier than a rectal or under-the-tongue thermometer. This is also more accurate than any of the forehead ones I have tried. It reads quickly so you don’t have to try and get baby to be still for very long.

This was recommended by my friend who’s a pediatric nurse and they use this in their office. It works so well and in my opinion more accurate than a lot of other thermometers that I’ve used before. I’m glad I decided to spend the extra bucks and get this one.

This thermometer was the best purchase we’ve made since parenting! It is quick and accurate every time. I recommend it to all of my friends, even if they don’t have children! We’ve owned ours for over a year and have nothing but great things to say about it.

Would it be good idea to change the ear liners every time or is it safe to use the same one a few times?
