Over the past couple years, our thermometer has seen more action than ever. Between having to take my toddler's temperature daily before he can go to school and panic-testing everyone else, it barely ever gets put away.
After trying the old fashion under the arm thermometers (and failing) and buying cheap thermometers online (which broke within minutes of opening) I am now a convert and love a good forehead infrared thermometer that the whole family can use.
And, because I love deals I found this extremely highly reviewed iHealth thermometer on sale on Prime Day and have been using it ever since. And I'm far from the first person who raves about it. Not only is it Amazon's #1 best selling baby thermometer, it's also racked up a 4.5 star rating from over 114K+ happy customers.
Here's a verified review from a top contributor at Amazon:
"I mainly purchased this for the middle of the night. My littles tend to spike their fevers at night and they always feel like they are 500 degrees. I wanted a way to take their temp without disturbing them. This is PERFECT for that. No beeping, no bright lights, easy to hold and use. That being said, the people complaining about inaccuracy aren't using it in the proper spot. I tested this by measuring different areas of the forehead and they are not all the same temp with or without a fever. You need to aim it at the center of the forehead about a fingers width away and you'll be all set!"
Like the reviewer, we also love the how easy it is to get a read on a wiggly (or sleeping!) toddler. The fact it's silent and not overly bright is great when we have to sneak into their room to check and the read out is basically instant.
