Very expensive but worth every penny. As the parent of a child who suffers from people I have to say that price does not matter when it comes to your baby. I would pay triple the price to have the peace of mind that this thermometer gives me. The temperature is accurate every time.

I recommend this to all new parents and it's one of my go to gifts at baby showers. This thermometer gets you a fast and accurate reading. Which is important when dealing with a sick kiddo who doesn't want you poking in their ear. Highly highly recommend

This thing is very quick which is great for a squirming baby and toddler. Sometimes I have to check each ear twice to get an accurate reading though. Also wish it came with a washable ear cover instead of having to use a new plastic one each time.

This works if they have a fever it will tell you. It’s just frustrating because if I put it in his ear 3 times it will give me 3 different temperatures. I feel that the ones you put under their arm or in their butt is more precise

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 my braun thermometers. The ear one is very accurate quick and easy to use. I love that it can not be used without the little plastic covers. It prevents the spread of germs from person to person. I've had it over 3 years and its still going strong!

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