I returned this thermometer because it had very wrong readings. It also cost $30+ so I didn’t feel bad taking it back

Can’t get an accurate read for some reason. It may work for others but doesn’t work for us, unfortunately.

Not accurate! It is all over the place. Wouldn’t recommend. Affordable but not worth the money you spend because it doesn’t work

I hate this thermometer because it NEVER reads accurately. I've read the directions a million times, and I also called the company. It is always off about 2 degrees. It's convenient for a fussy baby, but when you need an accurate reading this is horrible. Save your money and don't buy it!

I don’t find this thermometer is accurate at all. I take my sons or even my own temp a handful of times and get a different reading each time. I ended up purchasing an old school under the tongue thermometer instead because it was less expensive and more accurate.

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.

I swear this thing has a mind of its own. In one ear it will say 99.5 and then in the other it was 100.7, replaced batteries and everything.

I bought this for my infant daughter because it claimed to have a fast read out. I have found the temperature read to be inaccurate on multiple occasions. I can check her temperature back to back 5 times in a row and get a low read and then a super high read. It tells you to go with the highest read out but I just didn't feel like it was a great product. I wouldn't recommend this thermometer.

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