When I had five children in day care you can imagine I had one or more sick a LOT. I hated taking temperatures because I never felt like I was getting an accurate reading. I would use the digital but if I put it under their arms they would move so much it would take forever. If I tried to take it orally they would not hold it tight enough under their tongues or they would try to hold a conversation so that would never work either. It's really frustrating until they are old enough to understand but even I hate to take my temperature. When I'm sick and can't breathe the last thing I want to keep my mouth closed.
When I got to review the Easy@Home 3 in 1 Non-contact Infrared Thermometer I was very excited. I couldn't wait to see how it worked. Of course I was a little skeptical but who isn't when they try a new product?
The Infrared thermometer couldn't be easier to use, literally the thing i had to do was point the thermometer in at my child's forehead and press the button. A few seconds later it beeped and there was a reading, that's it. So I walked around taking the temperature of everyone in the home. Then it takes the guess work out knowing if you need to be alarmed because if the temperature is high it turns red. Yellow means low grade and of course green means normal, you can go anywhere!
I'm sure every one of you worries about the accuracy of a thermometer so I took my son's temp with this one and my other thermometer and they both had the same temp. So I would bet this one is extremely accurate. It is much easier to use than my forehead thermometer because that one requires I rub the thermometer down the forehead, this one requires NO touching at all.
I think how easy this would have made my life when they were babies. I could imaging sneaking in their rooms and taking their temps without waking them up. We all know how hard it is to get a sick baby back to sleep so if you are like me you cringe when you it's that time. This thermometer also has a silent button if you sneak in to take a temp while they are sleeping.
But you are not limited to taking the temperature of people it can also be used to take object surface temperature and room temperature you can measure the temp of Water/milk.
I received this product complimentary in exchange for my honest opinion but the opinion expressed is all mine. Regardless I only recommend products I feel are good for my readers.
