A few weeks ago, Influenster & Braun sent me a new Braun Forehead Thermometer to try. I was told it was priced a little over $50 (Gah! I know!) but Walmart retails is for under $30 (whew!) plus, there was a $10 rebate circling around.
Now somewhere (um...I haven't seen it since the guys arrived here in Anchorage...but I'm *assuming* it made the trip) I have a cheap forehead thermometer (yep. gave in. why? because...Josiah.), so I was excited to get this one (you know-to replace the one that I can't find.).
Even though I'm a mom, I'm not a forehead connoisseur, so I can't say for sure that this is 100% THE BEST FOREHEAD THERMOMETER EVER, but I think it is. Sure, it's battery operated, but it only has two buttons on the front AND INSTRUCTIONS! That's right folks, this new thermometer has the instructions right on the front, so even Dad has no excuse! None!
It's so easy to use, I filmed a short vid of me using it on my daughter-one hand holding my phone, one hand on the thermometer. You just push the power button, wait for the initial beep, then hold the other button down while sweeping the thermometer across someone's forehead. I even tried it on the Hubs. Easy-peasy. AND.....the background of the screen changes color depending on the temperature-green if the temp is in the "normal" zone, yellow for "uh-oh" and red for "yeah, they've REALLY got a fever. Put them to bed".
I can honestly say that I do recommend this pricey thermometer because it's easy and it works. It's battery operated, so I would stash a few extra ones with it, but other than that, I haven't found any negatives to it yet.
