So Tim has an infrared thermometer for grilling and smoking meat but we never thought about how great one would be for children's temperature. I struggle to get and keep a thermometer in the house that works well, fast, and accurate. I was excited to try out the SantaMedical Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer.
Each reading takes less than 1 second and the thermometer can store the last 32 readings so you never have to wonder what the last temperature was. I'm not big on reading manuals unless I get stuck so I grabbed the thermometer, hit the go button and tried it out. It's intuitive and easy to use. The directions when I got around to reading them suggest placing the thermometer parallel to the forehead for a second. You'll see the temperature in the lcd screen and ca control the sounds the device plays too.
The reading can be affected by skin temperature so taking it after exercise or sweating etc. can be misleading. Just like with any thermometer don't run up the stairs and tun take your temperature. I liked how easy it was to check and recheck without undressing and disturbing my kiddos. You can easily switch between celsius and fahrenheit too.
