A Must Have Product For All Parents

There are some products that I think are essential to have as parents and one of them is definitely a good thermometer. Having a thermometer allows you to monitor your childs temperature and best decide if any treatment is needed.

When I was pregnant with my first child I bought a thermometer designed for babies that went under their tongue, I quickly discovered that this is not the easiest way to test a baby or child for that matters temperature, also you needed to hold it there for about 5 seconds which doesn't seem like a long time but in reality when you're trying to keep it placed under a childs tongue it seems like a lifetime.

I think the main reason I bought that thermometer was because all the in ear thermometers that I had seen were really expensive so I was really pleased when I found this DMD Digital Ear Thermometer on Amazon.

I was so impressed with this thermometer when it arrived, it comes with it's own little storage case and is incredibly easy to use.

All you have to do is press the on button on the back to switch it on and then place into your child's ear and press the scan button, it literally takes 1 second to take their temperature, it couldn't be more simple.

The screen is clear and easy to read and if you have been monitoring your child's temperature it stores the last 10 readings in it's memory so you can scroll through by pressing the on button and check if their temperature is going up or down.

The thermometer automatically switches itself off after 1 minute of not being used and can be used on all ages from newborn to adults. I thoroughly recommend this thermometer to anyone with children or any pregnant ladies out there, it is a must have item.

Do you have a thermometer at home? Have you found it useful?

Let me know!



  1. We have a Tommee Tippee one and I used it about 5 times in the first week Ted was born as I was so panicky about him getting ill! Touch wood he has never been ill in 8months but they are so handy! x

    1. Yeah they're great for just putting your mind at ease, that's amazing that Ted has never been ill :) he must have a good immune system, my son never got ill in his first 2 years and then he went to pre-school and it went down hill from there lol xx

  2. I have actually lost mine but this one looks so easy to use I prefer the one's you put in their ears, I shall have to get one in the next few weeks :) xx
