Having three children in the house, it’s inevitable they will pick up the germs and get sick. And if there’s one thing they dislike just as much as taking medicine it’s sitting still long enough for me to take their temperature. I’ve tried various thermometers in the last few years, but the MothersTouch Forehead Thermometer ($29) I received recently has been the quickest and simplest by far.
The Mother’s Touch works like a ring that you place around your finger and then press to your child’s forehead (near the temple).
To use it, just press the on/off button and wait for 2 beeps. Then place the thermometer on your child’s forehead with the display side facing out. You don’t have to press hard, just maintain contact and the thermometer will beep within 6-8 seconds with the reading. You can be sure that you’ve got an accurate measurement because if your child moves or contact is disrupted the thermometer will give you an error message instead.
I really like that this thermometer can be used when the girls are sleeping. This way I won’t have to disturb them as I’m monitoring their fevers throughout the night. I also like that there’s a memory recall so I don’t have to write down their readings for future comparison. But the best part is that it’s non-invasive . . . just place on the forehead and get your reading.
And did you know that you should take your child’s temperature when they are healthy to get a good idea of what their normal body temperature is? Temperatures can range from 97 to 100 degrees and still be considered normal. So when my child has a fever of 100.1 that might not actually be much of a fever if her normal temperature is 99. Very interesting!
So the next time your child has a fever, take their temperature without all the hassles using the MothersTouch Forehead Thermometer.
