I LOVE this thermometer. It is so easy to use and my kids dont fight me when I need to take their temperature anymore. I have tried ALL of them... The "under the armpit", "under the tongue", and "across the forehead". They have either been inaccurate or my kids scream. I keep this one with me in my medical bag at all times now.

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

I like the ear covers for this product. It keeps it nice and sanitary for us. It’s quick to use and gives a pretty accurate temp read. They only thing I don’t like is the covers are REALLY HARD TO FIND. I have to order them off amazon cause they don’t sell them in store... even though I bought this product in the store.....

I was thrilled about this until my daughter had an ouchie in her ear aka "an ear infection" It was a little pricey in my opinion, but it still does its job effectively. It does have the little protectors that go in it, which it will not work if you dont have them on it. We ran out and it wouldn't work without them.

Fast and effective!  We graduated to this thermometer once our little boy was a toddler and I haven't regretted purchasing it at all!  I read some bad reviews about the forehead thermometers give false readings and not reading accurately so I stayed away from those all together.  For the price and the ease of use, the Bruan ThermoScan 5 Ear Thermometer cannot be beat!

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