Thanks to Mom Select I was given the opportunity to review a Digital Temple Thermometer. The amazing part was that the day I received the thermometer in the mail, my son got very sick and I ended up taking his temperature all day long. This is my new favorite thermometer and won't be using any others!
The package states it is Fast and Accurate and it is! It has a large backlight display, fever alert, and memory recall. It is for use on the child's temple or underarm. It is also non invasive and can be used when the child is awake or asleep! The thermometer uses 2 AAA batteries.
Using a unique sensor, R.A.T.E (Rapid Accurate Temperature Establishment), it rapidly samples the heat flowing from the blood vessels to the skin surface and translates it accurately to the body temperature.
All you have to do is press the power button, wait for the beeps, press the sensor on the temple or underarm and read the temperature in 6-8 seconds!
This thermometer can be purchased at your local Walgreens or at http://www.blogger.com/www.walgreens.com for $19.99.
The exciting part is I have one for myself and one to give away to one of you! If you have children, I think this is a MUST HAVE! No other thermometers can compare! With flu season just around the corner, this can at least make the temperature taking a little easier! All you have to do is leave me a comment with your email address. This contest is open to US residents until 11:59 PM on Monday October 5th. Random.org will pick the lucky winner on Tuesday, October 6th!
