I received this thermometer today and I love it my daughter has been running a fever due to teething ( she's 7 months old) and she hates when I stick the thermometer under her arm so she moves around resulting in an inaccurate reading with this tool I can use her ear or forehead to receive an accurate reading and keep a careful watch on her body temp which is reassuring.

We purchased this after several recommendations and are happy with it. I am sometimes curious about its accuracy because I get different readings after consecutive tries.

When I watch my granddaughter (six months old), it is difficult to get her temperature with a traditional under-the-tongue thermometer. This has worked out well since I am able to place it on her forehead or in her ear and get an accurate reading. Is is also useful that it tracks previous readings, so I am able to show her parents/a doctor the previous temperatures if there is an issue that requires their attention. I feel that this is much more sanitary than previous thermometers that I have used, and it is also nice that it can be used on adults as well.

great to use on infants and older children

Awesome for children and infants. Affordable and quick

I am an RN .. This is a quick thermometer .. Light weight and affordable. If it gets left at a patient home I am not out of a lot of money.

works great

…So much better than taking my infants temp from her armpit.…

Can I use this for small babies?

Yes! I'm currently working in pediatric home care. The majority of the patients are infants. It works very well. I'm very satisfied with the results.

For a basic thermometer it works great. People need to understand a temporal temperature is ...

…I wouldn't recommend it in a population (i/e small infants/children) when a 0.2 degree difference is huge, but in a somewhat older population it is great to just give an idea if there is a fever present.

Perfect for infants

Exactly what we wanted. Easy to use and accurate.

Helpful for infants

You can take temputure while baby is asleep. Long battery life. Convenient that it takes regular batteries.

Best infant/toddler thermometer!

We have tried other thermometers in the past and this one is by far the best! I cannot recommend this product enough. It is very easy to use and I love the fact that it can be used on the forehead or in the ear. This is the best of the best and I hope that we will never by another thermometer from another company.

Easy to use

Easy to use with infants

Infant friendly/user friendly/ accurate

I actually really like this my 18 months old had an ongoing fever and this was the first thermometer I used without having to fight him to take his temperature. It’s quick and seems very accurate. It was a good purchase I’d recommend it. My only somewhat issue was I didn’t find the instructions to be super clear took me a moment to figure out how to completely use it properly but it’s smooth sailing now.

Worked like advertised

Was easy to use on infants and young children.

Recommend this over any other product

Great product, easy to use with my infant that doesn’t let anyone near her when she’s sick.

Is this strictly a "baby" thermometer?

Not at all, it can be used for anyone infant to adult.

Can I used it on my newborn

Yes but a rectal temp is always more accurate which may be important when fevers begin. Tonight our Exergen said 100.3 however rectal temp was 103.0. The difference can be significant when talking about infants.

love it!

easy to use, especially on infants & small children-- follow directions to get a quick, accurate reading the first time!…

Daughter in law loves the new thermometer

…This works very well and is a comfort to get a precise reading when your infants and toddlers may be running a fever.

Forehead Reading Thermometer

…If the infant is holding still, it is a breeze, but if they are squirming, not so easy. …All in all, I would recommend this item because I have had no problems with it, just the infant cooperating.

best one ever had

For $25 its worth every buck and must have in every home..specially with infants and toddlers.…

Sri
great.. don't have to wake the child up.

just slide it across the forehead..no need to wake them up to take temp any more, great for infants and toddlers
