I only purchase the ones that go under the arm and my girls don't like it. When I try to take their reading it takes about 1-2 mins and they are squirming and crying because they don't like it. Sometimes I would have to take the reading a few times to make sure it was accurate. After a period of time it runs out of batteries and I have to throw it out and have to repurchase another one.
Graco has released their own 1-second ear thermometer that I think every mom should have.
- takes reading in one second
- easy-to-read lighting jumbo LCD display
- No probe cover needed - cleans with alcohol
- 512 scanning sequences per second identify highest temperature
- self test when turn on
- stores/recalls last ten readings
- measures temperature in Fahrenheit or Celsius
- Automatic shutoff
This thermometer was so easy to use, I wish I had this years ago. It would had made my life less stressful when my girls were sick. There is nothing I don't like about it. It is the best thermometer I ever used. I really like the smiling or frowning face that will appears after each reading.
Over the years, I had to purchase a few new thermometers because they ran out of batteries. It is such a waste to throw them out, just because they needed its batteries to be replaced. I am so glad this Graco's thermometer has a latch so I could re-place the batteries and it will warn me when the battery is low.
I like how the LCD lights up because most of my readings are done when the room is dark. I don't like to turn on the light so am usually I am rushing out of the room so I could read it. I really like how it stores the last ten readings. Moms like to keep track of each reading to see if it has improved or not. This just make it so easy and convenient.
