My New Go To Thermometer

Let me just start out by saying, I didn't think there was a difference in thermometers. After my first was born, we just got some random one from Target to put under her little arm in the case that she felt warm and I wanted to be sure. I have used that thermometer three times since we got it. I'm not a person who is against them. I would LOVE to measure her to see if she is running a fever so I can help her feel better. The problem is! These stupid things take THIRTY SECONDS to get a reading. GAH! Who has time for that?! Certainly not me. So I just haven't take her temperature. I don't have the time or energy to put into convincing my two year old to sit still for that long. Blech.

Enter Braun. Who sent me this AMAZING new thermometer to try (I was sent this thermometer to give my honest opinion about it). I didn't even know what I was missing until this happened to me. It turns out I don't have to fight with my kid, or not take her temperature for over a year.

How accurate is it? Pretty much as accurate as our Target. Perhaps even more accurate. I measured my daughter after a bath, so it was a little low, and I got a pretty similar reading. 

 You know what really sells me though? My kid loves this thing. She plays with it all day. If I put it away, in the morning she asks for her "face" as she calls it. :)

I'm sold. Convinced. I will be getting this thermometer for everyone as a baby shower gift from now until forever. Thanks Braun! 

I received this product to test and review. All opinions are my own.
