Influenster sent over a Braun forehead thermometer for us to try out and review, and we love it!
We already have a forehead thermometer that was a gift from a friend when Samuel was born and it works ok, but the Braun forehead thermometer works even better. It’s super easy to use and seems to get a more accurate/consistent reading. With the other one, it seemed like I could take a temp three times in a row and get three different readings.
The very best part about the Braun forehead thermometer was Samuel’s reaction to it. He thinks it’s hilarious to get his temperature taken! It’s pretty much the cutest thing on the planet.
You can purchase a Braun forehead thermometer of your very own for about $60 at Walmart or Toys R Us (Babies R Us). Depending on how squirmy your kid is, how often people get sick in your house, or how much you hate taking a temp the old fashioned way, I would say it’s generally a worthwhile investment. This is definitely the kind of thing MY cheap self would have on a baby registry or use gift cards from a shower to buy one.
