If you've been reading along, you know that the last couple months in my house haven't been the healthiest! I did have one new gadget that made life a bit simpler for us, though. A few months ago, I received a Temple Touch Thermometer to try out from Mom Select and Temple Touch Thermometer.
This thermometer is WONDERFUL! I have used traditional thermometers and digital thermometers in the past, but getting a child to keep it under their tongue, or in their armpit was always a bit of a challenge - especially when someone was already feeling under the weather. I'm pretty good at determining if someone has a fever by touch, but doctors' offices usually want to know a number instead of my guess.
The Temple Touch Thermometer is easy to use and gives you a result in less than 10 seconds. It has a memory feature to recall recent temperatures taken, as well as a timer to help you remember when to give the next dose of medicine.
I really liked that I could take the kids' temperatures while they were sleeping, by simply putting the thermometer against their temple and waiting a few seconds for the reading.
This would make a great baby shower gift!You can find the Temple Touch Thermometers at Walgreens, with a MSRP of $29.99. Visit their website for more information! Or, you can follow the inventor on Twitter @TempleTouchMom.
