Top critical review
Great idea, but not so great product

As others have mentioned, it does have a large size and sometimes takes forever to finish a temperature reading. However, my 4 months old boy did not have problems using it and I should specify that most of the times it takes between 1-3 min to read. Only some of the times it takes so long that makes me loose track of time waiting and at the end it simply turns off.
Besides that, it claims to read in both Farenheit and Celsius, but mine does not. It only reads Farenheit. I have carefully read the instructions that comes with it and it simply doesn't switch. It may have been a problem with my product, but it is worth mentioning. So I have to keep converting the values to Celcius so they will mean something to me.
Also, it is important to say that you cannot change the batteries when they finish. You have to dispose the entire thermometer and then buy a new one.
Finally, I should say that the colors of the display are great. That really helps you get the message right away, specially when you still have to convert it to Celsius to undestand the reading.
