    Default Accuracy of thermometer

    Just wondering if anyone owns one of those thermometers that takes temperature just by touching the forehead?
    Just curious about their accuracy.
    Thanks!

    I haven't got one bc I googled it prior to choosing a thermometer and read that the normal under the arm cheapies are more accurate.

    Would love to see what others think though - my toddler has a fit when I try to check his temp.

    Yeah I reviewed one from here a while ago. A mazing! Love it! It's just as accurate as our cheapie under arm one but easier to use

    Can you share the brand on here? If not, do you mind sending me a PM?

    DD had to have her temp checked in hospital and is now so scared of the underarm ones. Who would have thought having something put under your arm could be so distressing!?

    Where do you hold it to get the reading? Anywhere on the body?

    With the one I linked ideally the temple area but I find it is still reasonably accurate within 0.5 ° anywhere on the forehead and belly. Best thing is it is instant and you can put it on silent so no beeping.
