The F word terrifies most parents. Yes mamas, we’re talking fever – or temperature – in our precious little people.
From the moment they’re born, we’re told to watch for signs and monitor closely. But did you know that the definition of fever changes with age? An acceptable temperature in a four year old for example can be classed as a high fever in a newborn – yikes! – that can be seriously confusing and easy to forget.
Well mamas, the very clever people at Braun have come up with a genius new thermometer that should, quite frankly, be in every family medicine cabinet and on all mama-to-be’s baby shower wish list. With Age Precision Technology that allows you to set the age of your child, the new Braun ThermoScan® 7 ear thermometer with Age Precision® uses age plus temperature to give an accurate reading of whether your little one has a fever or not. With settings from 0-3 months to 36 months+, this clever little gadget is quick and easy to use and eliminates all that uncertainty and frantic internet searching – plus a simple colour coded display that shows green if all is well and there is nothing to worry about, yellow for an elevated temperature and red for a high fever – all according to age. Amazing right?!
It can be tricky taking a tot’s temperature and with all that wriggling about, readings can often be inaccurate. But this smart gadget has a pre-warmed tip, which guarantees professional accuracy each time (even the doctors swear by it and if those guys give it the thumbs up, we need to listen mamas!). It also has a big screen with a night light feature for middle-of-the-night monitoring plus a memory function that stores the last 9 readings, allowing you to note any temperature fluctuation. Oh, and the ThermoScan 7 also does packed lunches for you in the early morning. Hang on… that was a joke but it still is seriously good!
Anything that helps reassure parents about their little kiddos health and eliminate any uncertainty over that dreaded F word gets a big Sassy Mama seal of approval. Go buy it mamas.
