Shortly before we moved into our new house, a box arrived for me. Imagine my surprise when it was a Braun Forehead Thermometer to test out on the family! Although the product was provided for free to me, all the opinions below are my own.
Previously we’ve used a medical grade forehead thermometer which required a PhD to operate. We’d recently resorted back to the underarm for temps, which upset Pip to NO end. You’d think we were torturing him! So, I was very excited to test this forehead thermometer out! Sadly, we got the opportunity to test it out too soon – as Pip caught the flu over Christmas, spiking fevers of up to 104.
It fits in the palm of my hand and is quite lightweight
- Fairly Accurate
Testing it against my underarm thermometer, I got pretty consistent results!
And in case you forget, the directions are ON the thermometer! No need to go looking for the booklet!
For those middle of the night temp checks – it not only is backlit, but the light corresponds to the temp (red for a fever, orange for too warm, green for ok!)
It only takes a few moments, which is good. Sick babies are irritable! Here is a short clip of me taking Pip’s temperature today:
As it takes the temperature, it beeps. Although not extremely loud, it did disturb the baby when in a light sleep.
- No Case
I would have loved a labelled case for storing it in – Therefore I could find it at a glance while keeping it safe!
As you can see, the pros outweigh the cons for us! We really love this one and it is easily our “go to” thermometer now – especially since Pip is a fan too!
Note: I received these products complimentary from Influenster for testing purposes
