An under-arm thermometer can be difficult to use on a squirming, wriggling child. Ear thermometers can be accurate, but many parents and grandparents find them difficult to use. The common problem seems to be that people don’t want to risk hurting the child and therefore do not insert them properly, leading to inaccurate results. People report taking 3 readings and getting 3 vastly different results!
The VeraTemp non-contact thermometer is unbelievably easy to use. You hold it a few centimetres from the child’s forehead and push the button. Within a second you have a reading. Do it another few times if you want and you’ll see all your readings are within about 0.1 degree of each other, which gives you confidence that the reading is accurate.
It can also be used to measure the air temperature in the child’s room and can even be used to measure the temperature of their food, which makes it a very versatile thermometer. Yet it’s actually cheaper than the vast majority of ear thermometers, making it exceptionally good value for money.
Every parent needs a thermometer of some sort and this particular one is extremely popular with parents, particularly those of very young children.
