It always starts with Lizzie. She goes to Kindergarten, gets a few sniffles, and before I know it all three are feverish, coughing, and sick. As a mom of a 5 year old, 3 year old and 2 year old – I 100% suggest every parent purchase the Exergen Temporal Scanner.
I bought the Exergen Temporal Scanner when Lucy was a tiny baby. Lizzie started preschool, David was about 2 years old and Lucy was 4 months. That is when she got pneumonia. Taking the temperature of a squirming and sick baby is not easy. But it is dead-on accurate with the Exergen! You just hold the round button down while you swipe from the middle of the forehead to the temple. No need to add or subtract a degree, it is the correct reading.
What you drink can affect your temperature inside your mouth. And when you take a temp under the arm you can get an inaccurate reading if you don’t have it under it enough. But one quick 2-second swipe of the forehead and you have an accurate tempurature.
See why it is my lifesaver? When all three are sick, I only need one little tool! It is worth every single dime! You can buy it right now on Amazon.com for only $32! (And it qualifies for free shipping with Amazon Prime!) If you know a new mom, this makes a fantastic baby shower gift too.
Do you have an Exergen? What is your experience with it?
Disclaimer: I received this thermometer for review purposes. I purchased one last year and honestly loved it so much I wanted to share it with you. No other compensation was received. All opinions are 100% my own. If you click the Amazon.com link it is an affiliate link. So if you buy an Exergen through that link I might be able to buy half a latte. Thank you for your support!
