Braun No Touch Forehead Thermometer - Review


When Ethan and Ivy aren't well, it really makes everything that we do more difficult.  It means that they can't sleep, and don't eat as well and are hardly in the mood to play.  That's why it's really important that they feel better as soon as possible, and that means getting a good nights sleep.  That's why I was so excited to see these new thermometers from Braun.  We were lucky enough to try the new Braun No Touch Forehead Thermometer on Ethan and Ivy when they were ill this past week.  

The thermometer can be used in two ways, as a regular forehead thermometer and the 'no touch' method.  I've been using the touch method during the day and then I'm able to compare it to the ear thermometer that we already have.  I find for the most part that the forehead thermometer gives a bit of a higher reading, but as most sources say that ear thermometers are the most accurate that isn't very surprising.  So I would still choose to use the ear thermometer when I can, but after taking Ethan and Ivy's temperature a few times during the day they do often get a bit annoyed with me putting something in their ear, so it is easier to use a forehead thermometer on them and keep them distracted so that they hardly notice.

When this thermometer is truly fantastic is at night.  Being able to go into the kids rooms to check their temperature while they are sleeping has made such a big difference for us.  You can turn the volume off, hold the thermometer 5 cm from their head and see their temperature within a few seconds.  This has meant that I haven't had to wake them needlessly, only if their temperature has been quite high and they needed medicine.  Then hopefully that extra sleep that they get means that they will be stronger and get well sooner.

  1. Oh, it's really nice to know that this kind of thermometer can do a trick. Each mom wants something that they can rely on, especially when kids has a fever. This could be a perfect medical gadget for everyone of us. I have no doubt that non-contact type of thermometers is really great.
