I love this thermometer. It is so easy to use and works so quickly. From my newborn to my teenager it works great for them all. No fuss no muss.
a must have for new moms
this is an easy to use must have for new moms.very handy,rapid readings especially when you have a fussy baby that does notwant to be messed with.can’t say enough positive things about this product.
Quick and worry free
I like this thermometer because it is really easy to use and the kids don’t mind it one bit. My toddler was aprehensive the first time around, but I quickly turned him onto it by demonstrating on my own ear first. The item is compact and has a digital read out. It is great because it has a memory of the last temp that was taken. When you turn it on, it beeps and a backlight makes the screen glow. after a quick “diagnostic” check it displays the last temp taken and at this point it is ready to use. Just stick it in the ear and press the button until it beeps again. Then it displays the temp and a little happy or sad face at the bottom. The face is my favorite part because it is quick and easy to tell if they have a fever, especially if you are like me and don’t have enough room in your brain to remember the temp for a fever. The batteries didn’t last very long for me (about 5 months of average use), but it takes a standard 3 v watch battery. It has auto shut off which is nice, plus a little storage bag. The bag is something that is easily taken for granted, but I can tell you right now that I am glad it come with one because a) it won’t get dusty sitting around in the drawer/cabinet b) if the kids get ahold of it they have to actually take it out of the bag to cause damage (at which point they will be caught with it before its too late). The item seems durable enough to me. I have been using it for almost a year now and nothing has gotten jammed up or broken which is somewhat of a miracle considering the quality of most products these days.
I rated this a three only b/c I think it reads lower than what the baby’s temp actually is. It is nice that it reads so fast vs the typical thermometer that you use on a baby and try to keep them still for that long…IMPOSSIBLE.
97.6 all day long
Doesn’t really work very well, you get what you pay for. It always reads the same temperature or it will be almost a whole degree off. When my son was really sick, I had to take him to the ER because I couldn’t trust this thermometer…which ended up being wrong, so I’m glad I took him .
Didn’t use it as much
I only used it a few times but I must say it is great. It has a reading in a few seconds. I don’t know how long it will last but I am happy with it for the time being. I purchased it only about a month ago. I’m very old school but this does give accurate readings. Highly recommend it!
Super easy and quick to use. It really does take temperatures in one second. It’s small and can easily fit in the pouches on any baby bag. I like it 🙂
This thermometer works great and it takes the baby’s temperature instantly. I like that this thermometer is an affordable price too.
Good for price
This thermometer fit in my budget, and works fairly well. I usually take a reading from each ear, just to be accurate. You have to get the right angle to get it deep enough in ear for a correct reading. I made it into a game with my 1 year old, and she just loves me taking her temp.
Works just like it should. Simple, portable, fast.
It’s not precise
It sure reads the temperature fast. THe down side is that it gives a completely wrong read. Sometimes my baby was clearly running a fever and the thermometer read a low temperature. When using another type of thermometer, I’d confirm the baby actually had a fever but this ear thermometer couldn’t read it.
This thermometer does not work. I have taken my own temp numerous times back to back and get a different reading every time. I’ve known my daughter has had a fever but this thing will read 97 degrees. It is also very tiny. I’m in the market for something else!
I used this on my baby who had a 102 degree fever. She was hot to the touch. This thermometer read 98. It read low when I tested it on myself too. I threw it away.
LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS! super easy to use and convenient. It is accurate which is very important with 2 little ones at home! Definitely recommend this product to any parent of young ones!
Don’t get the negative reviews!
I got this for my 8 month old and it works perfectly! I usually read reviews before buying and, luckily, this was an exception. I bought it and then panicked at the reviews. When I finally got it – a friend brought it over to Brazil for me – I was absolutely relieved, it works perfectly! No more fighting my boy for the 3 or so minutes with the thermometer under his little arm! Turning the measures to Celsius was a piece of cake and the temperature is taken very quickly and accurately. I absolutely recommend it.
This is junk. It never reads a temp above 97.0 when my kids clearly have a temp. I will be purchasing something else.
I like it
Seems to work perfectly but you have to be sure to read the instructions. Easy way to take the temperature
I’m sure it’s not user error
My husband and I have read all of the directions – at least twice each- on this thermometer. And yet, it consistently reads a very low temp – on the baby and even on us. We haven’t had it give an accurate temp yet.I am sure there are better models out there, but for now, we’re sticking with the American Red Cross under the armpit one.
Does what you need
The only reason this is getting 4 stars is because I spent (and I don’t misuse the word literally) LITERALLY 30 minutes trying to get this out of the worst packaging I have ever encountered. I tested the temps with another thermometer and it is accurate. I will use this when the baby gets a bit bigger since I am using a rectal at first with the newborn.
Can’t live without it
Very precise and fast to take body temperature of a new born!If you have a older child, you have several options, but for a new born, this is the ideal thermometer, in my opinion.
