Braun ThermoScan 5 Ear Thermometer
Sep. 15, 2014
When you have a infant or child that is not feeling well, taking their temperature can be a struggle. But getting the temperature is needed so the wrestling match begins.
One time when my son was sick, I took his temperature rectally. It stressed me out because you don't want to cause your baby any discomfort. And when I took his temperature, that was the moment he decided to pee. Good times!!
So after that moment, I started taking temperatures under the arm. This can bring different struggles. My oldest son did not like having the thermometer under his arm so I would pretty much have to bear hug him to get the temperature. But at least I wasn't getting peed on. My youngest doesn't mind taking his temperature under his arm. But a digital thermometer can take a while which can be hard for a 2.5 year old to stand still for that long.
Luckily, I received the Braun ThermoScan 5 Ear thermometer from Influenster to review. No other compensation was received and all opinions are my own. So I gave it a try on my youngest son. His temperature was 98.2. And it took just seconds. So to be fair, I tried a digital thermometer under his arm. His temperature under his arm was 98.6. But it take a while for the results. I would not say my results are scientific but the temperatures were close enough that I would know if my child had a fever.
I am passionate about saving time and money. I feel that using the Braun Thermometer would be a huge time saver when trying to get the temperature of a sick child as it takes just seconds. And it is very easy on the parent and child which is very precious when you have a sick child. With cold season just around the corner, getting a quick temperature read is a must!! Have a HOPtastic day!!
