All of our kids get sick at one point or another, and it is no fun at all. Having a reliable thermometer is very important. I have been looking at temporal scanners but wasn’t sure which one was good. I was thrilled to get an email from Exergen asking me to try out their temporal scanner infrared thermometer, I of course said yes.
I LOVE the fact that you can turn off the beeping sound so that if the child is sleeping you won’t wake them up. I mean, seriously that is a great thing. It is so easy to use, you just swipe the forehead and side of neck and it gives you the reading.
- A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room
- Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child
- Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression
- Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes
The only thing I have found that I don’t really like is that it runs on a 9V battery and I don’t have spare of those. Not that this is a big deal, I just have to remember to have at least one in the battery drawer.
I am very lucky and my girls are not sick that often, but when they do I know I will have the Exergen to use. I suggest that you consider this for your next thermometer and would make for a perfect baby shower gift.
You can find the Temporal Thermometer at Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer is priced at $49.99
