I am so excited to share this great product with you!
I don't know about you, but trying to take a child's temperature when they are not feeling well can be a nightmare. I can pretty much tell by feel if my kids have a fever, but the Drs always seem to want a number when I call. So I pull out my good ole digi thermometer and stick it under the armpit (I am NOT gonna go do a rectal on a sick kid for a number...seriously! Yuck, sounds miserable. And little guys just can't seem to keep a thermometer in their mouth long enough to get an accurate reading). Those of you familiar with taking an axillary temp know that it takes WAY longer than the other methods. So here I am, holding my little one's arm against his side, and he is fighting desperately to get away from me. He just wants to be left alone!
Enter the Reli On Temple Touch Thermometer! Taking a temperature could not be more simple with this small (and can I get a cheer for the price??? Retail on this baby is only $9.94), easy to store thermometer. Here is what you do:
Step 1: Press power button (thermometer will beep once)
Step 2: Listen for thermometer to beep twice (this means you are good to go)
Step 3: Place end of thermometer to child's temple area (or yours, it works great for adults too)
Step 4: Read results when thermometer beeps (about 6 seconds! Yep no more waiting forever)
Four simple steps (and seriously I could have combined 2 and 3) and you have a temperature reading to make the Drs happy, a non invasive method for a happier kid, and a happy mommy (cause you know a happy kid means a happy mommy).
I have tried this baby several times over the past week (everyone has taken their turns being sick, which explains my delay in posting this giveaway), and I can't tell you how much nicer it was to just whip this out to get a quick temp than my old method. Luckily, none of us ever had a fever, but I will definitely be keeping this baby close by for future illnesses (with five kids, most of them in some sort of school now, we are likely to have another round of sickness pretty soon).
