When it comes to thermometers I have tried them all. We have a thermometer that is for rectal, oral, and under the arm. We have a pacifier thermometer. I have an ear thermometer. Actually, I have two ear thermometers.
When it comes to taking the temperature of your child it is extremely difficult. If they are screaming the pacifier will not stay in their mouth long enough to take the temp. The ear is difficult with Mr. squirmy Miles my little man. My daughter always complains about the ear as well. Not only is getting their temp difficult, getting an accurate reading is difficult.
Last time my son was sick his temp was 104. I freaked out. I called the doctor and the nurses asked what I used to get the reading. They said that the best I could do was use the under the arm but I have to add a degree to it. They also told me not to worry, but if I get 104 with my new TemporalScanner, we’re going to the ER because my doctor said 105 is brain melt.
The TemporalScanner uses infrared to measure the body temperature. It uses the temporal artery which is the temp of our blood flow. It is so easy to use. You just rub it across the forehead and get the temp. It says on the directions to make sure the hair is out of the way and that you go in a straight line, but I haven’t done any of that and I have been completely satisfied with the accuracy. Heck, all I want to know is if they have a fever or not. We have been able to use it to take the temperature of the room we are in. It’s an accurate read too. It has been the least invasive way for getting their temp with the most accurate result. My kids can use it on each other and my oldest child is two. I love my kids.
You can purchase the TemporalScanner at Costco, Wal-Mart, and Babies R Us.
