          Comments about Forehead Thermometer:

          I got this as a baby shower gift and thought it was going to be great. That was until I tried to figure out how to use it. The idea of it sounds great but I can never get an accurate reading from it. So I end up using an "old fashion" thermometer. I am very disappointed in this product.

            Bought this when my son was sick. I take his temperature 3x in a row to get a good reading. Sounds like a lot, but really this tool takes the temperature in seconds so having to redo is not a big deal. Just to see how reliable it is I also took my son's temperature from behind to see if this was accurate. I found the thermometer read 100.8 and this thermometer read 101. So pretty close and I won't be bothering my son's little butt anymore.

              This product is super easy to use, but I have found that it is completely inaccurate. If you don't have a fever, the reading is always wrong. It gives a random reading that is not even close to 98.6. If you have a fever though, it gives a more accurate reading.

              I wouldnt spend this much money on this item again, since they recommend to take the temperature more than once and that it could be off a bit... after several tries we figured out how to use it, so that wasnt to hard.

              Comments about Forehead Thermometer:

              At first, I was really happy with this thermometer because my baby never had a fever, so the screen was always green. Then, when my baby started teething, it became a nightmare. First of all, it can show a fever of 101.2 and 5 seconds later it can be 97.8. Very inaccurate and imprecise. Second, the battery somehow wears off after a few uses so it is not clear when to start taking the temperature. You kind of have to figure it out. Third, if the baby gets constipated, you cannot use it to help him have a bowel movement (this is what the doctors usually recommend). Fourth, [$] for this? Horrible experience. I am ordering a cheaper, less sophisticated and more reliable thermometer. Highly disappointed. Not good for small kids. Maybe as a room thermometer.

                    I love this thermometer.i bought this when my baby had high fever late at night and had no way to measure her without waking her up, beside the fact that its a whole fight to keep a reg. thermometer in her mouth or ear even by day. but i was able to measure her while sleeping as often i wanted without bothering her and being calm.and I dont have to worry about washing off or covering the edge. i cant say that its the most accurate thermometer but quit accurate like the first time it showed me 99.8 and than 100.1 it can go up and down 2,3 points but for me thats good enough.also at first i couldnt get it to work and i was nervous about my baby so didn't read instructions carefully.but once you get the hang of it its really simple to use.you have to press twice and wait in between a sec or two then put on forehead.overall its a very good product.
