I recently purchased this thermometer and now I wish I had got it sooner. It was about sixty dollars which was my deterent. I just bit the bullet and so glad I did. It's non- invasive.
It makes taking my toddlers temp easier as she thinks it's a game to see what colour it will be. It lights up green if in normal temp range, Orange if Mild and Red if too high as well as displaying what the temp is.It has a memory, so it will always display the last temp taken when you turn it on and recalls last 12 readings.
Takes 2 x AAA batteries included. Just slide it across the forehead and it's done. 3 Second readings. It beeps when it's ready to use and again when it has read the temp.
I found the cheap under arm thermometers hard to use with a toddler as the dont stay still long enough and they break easy.
I looked at this Vicks Forehead Thermometer as an investment for the whole family and takes a little stress out of what is normally a stressful and tiring time with a sick child anyway.
Whatever makes life easier has got to be a good thing.
