Keeping track of your baby’s temperature is key for any parent with a baby or young child. Here we have found some of the best baby thermometers to ensure your baby is happy and healthy
Every family medicine cabinet needs to have a baby thermometer for when you might think your little one might have a fever. Gone are the days you needed to shove a mercury-filled old-school thermometer in your child’s armpit and try to hold them still for six minutes to get an accurate reading. Thankfully, technology has advanced so much since that we can now get a pretty accurate body temperature reading in just a few seconds.
If you do want to spend a bit more, there are non-contact thermometers, suitable to use on a sleeping baby. After all, who wants to wake their child if they don’t have to? There are also those that are multi-purpose and can be used for measuring your child’s temperature in their ear, under their tongue, or even rectally.
They also are available for every budget, so if you’re not looking to shell out for the top range ones – there are cheaper options that get the job done just as well too.
