Was going to buy until I read this "Measurement time (ref only, it differs from people to people): 2min"
Good luck trying to get a child that is ill to keep it in for that long.

Yeah, these are fab in principle, but in practise its awful and I'm a rgn, better to go for the trad underarm digital ones or a thermoscan

Like the other 2 said, waste of money really.

Best off investing in a digital ear one, as it grows with baby. I wouldnt want to try and get my 5 yr old to sit with a dummy in her mouth for 2 mins!
I have had my Ear one since 7 yr old was a baby. Still works just as good.

I use the good ol. up the booty,most reliable oO

Nah just joking, got a nice braun one that the docs use, nothing is too dear when it comes to my kids.

It was only 20.00 or something

well to be honest with you i have already got one and seen this as its very cheap i paid over a tenner for mine!! it is well worth it as children who do usually take soothers will adopt to this and i have ordered a spare recommended from me

Very novel idea but doubt they'd be very accurate. Ear thermometer ftw.

no they are not, tested on my 13 mth when she was a baby, tried this, underarm digital and my braun thermoscan, this one was way out compared to the other 2, threw it straight in the bin, with children you need an accurate result not one that could be a degree or 2 out!

Not really the time or place to be novel when a child's health is at stake. They remind of the baby grow on The Apprentice that turned red when the baby was too warm but it needed a few degree increase before it kicked in.

What do you mean "way out"? Different parts of the body will be different temperatures. So an underarm thermometer will give a different reading to an in the mouth one. When testing for a fever, it is a good idea to know the child's usual temperature, and not just what it is when you suspect fever.

I have a great one its like the ones they use in the hospital baby care unit, well its more then like the ones they use it is the ones they use i nicked it seamed handy at the time but i did send flowers

these are inaccurate and therefore outright dangerous

Voted hot as I know how hard it was to get my little one when she was poorly to let me put a themometor under her arm, or in her ear. I wish they had these when my one was smaller as the most soothing thing for a little one is their dummy, and a degree out will give you an idea if they need medication and wont upset or irritate the. Thanks for the post.

I meant obviously you have to make allowances and add on for an underarm temp as obviously its not core temp, but the dummy one when I compared it with the adjusted reading from the underarm one and the reading from the braun thermoscan it was over 2 degrees out, it was reading 34.7, trying it again later it was then reading 38, whereas the other 2 were consistently showing 36.7, isn't rocket science that it is inaccurate, since a fever in a baby can be life threatening in extreme cases I would rather spend the extra and have complete peace of mind that I am going to achieve a consistent accurate result, having spent 22 years in the NHS taking temps every day I do know how to take one.

I wish these were a digital clock as-well, I could then use my little one as a clock.
