I am always looking for the best thermometer for taking my kids' temperatures. Which type is the best? I have even asked the nurse at our pediatricians office, they use a forehead thermometer. We have gone through regular digital thermometers (you know the ones that you can use rectally, under arm, or under the tongue?) and ear thermometers. I haven't really been happy with any of them nor could I put much faith in the fact that they were accurate.
Needless to say, when I found out I was receiving the Braun Forehead Thermometer from Influenster, to test at no charge, I was thrilled. The Braun forehead thermometer is really easy to use, I didn't even have to read the directions (not that I'm encouraging that.) My whole family lined up to test it out. Thankfully none of us are sick right now.
To begin using the thermometer you remove the cover from the temperature taking end and push the power button. Wait for the thermometer to turn on and beep once, showing double zeros on the light-up screen. Then there is a button that shows a picture of a thermometer, push that and hold it in. Place the thermometer on a temple and run it across your forehead and back again, ending on the temple you started on. The thermometer will beep repeatedly while you are doing this step, once you reach the end of the route there will be a long beep indicating it is finished. A great thing about this temperature apparatus is that the screen changes color to show you if there is a fever.
The Braun forehead thermometer is super easy to use and fast. I can take my kids' temperature while they are sleeping and they are not really bothered like they are when I am trying to put a stick under their arm. Plus, they like having their temperature taken, they think it's fun.
If you come across this Braun Forehead Thermometer in the store, consider buying it. It's definitely worth it.
