Babies have a very typical reaction to all the worries of the world: they cry. In pain, while teething, for lack of sleep or even the lack of attention, babies love to express themselves by crying. You cannot even blame them – because what else are they supposed to do as babies? By keeping a thermometer handy, you enable yourself to instantly check if there is something wrong with the bay that is beyond their regular tantrums. By being able to measure their temperature at the tip of your fingers, you also hurry up the entire process of taking them to the pediatrician sooner than when it’s too late. Types of baby thermometers : Baby Ear Thermometers: Also known as Tympanic thermometers, the ear thermometers measure the baby’s temperature via their ear canal, safe for babies over six months of age. Baby Digital Thermometer : Much like an adult digital thermometer, the baby digital thermometer can also measure a baby’s temperature with seconds. A digital thermometer is supposed to be held under a baby’s armpit, tongue Baby Forehead Thermometer : Also known as temporal artery thermometers, forehead thermometers are supposed to be swiped on a baby’s forehead to measure their temperature. This is given their incessant movement and the inability to stay put while measuring the temperature.

First-time parents or those who don't like the idea of sticking a thermometer inside their baby's rectum will like this. You will only use this on your baby's forehead or your child's ear as he grows older. There is no fear of puncturing anything at all. See More
When using it as a forehead thermometer, you have to acclimatize it to room temperature. You need to do this for 30 minutes before you use it so it will produce an accurate result. If you don't want to do this every time, you can store this at room temperature or use the ear function. See More
There's a labeled separate button for the forehead and ear function. Forehead function: Press and hold the head button. Then move the thermometer across your baby's forehead from temple to temple. You can do this by gently touching it on multiple spots on the forehead or sliding it across. Release the button and read the temperature. Ear function: Pull the ear slightly backward. Aim it inside your child's ear and press the ear button. Release the button and read the temperature. See More
