It seems like my kids have been sick every other week lately, so I have been using my new Braun ThermoScan Thermometer with ExacTemp Technology (around $50) a lot. We love it because its accurate (I’ve been using it with my 5 year old and 3 year old), has a pre-warmed tip and even I can’t mess it up. That’s important to me because I do own lots of thermometers that I can’t work). The infrared technology in the Braun ThermoScan takes a child’s temperature in seconds (important when your 3 year old is complaining /squirming away or your 5 year old is yelling at you to leave him alone). Additionally, the ThermoScan’s unique ExacTemp technology with Guidance System confirms with a light and a beep when you have taken a proper measurement – which means I can handle working it at 2 am.
And when you have to regularly monitor your child’s temperature, the ThermoScan’s memory function keeps track, storing up to eight different results.
Thank you to Braun for proving a product sample for review purposes.
