Awfully inaccurate

This product shouldn’t be on the market, it’s quite dangerous. In our case it was showing perfectly normal temperature both in ear and forehead versions for two days while in fact our baby had over 39.5 C fever which eventually was confirmed by another thermometer and by a doctor during our obvious rush to a hospital.
The company says that lens needs to be cleaned regularly which would be okay but firstly, ours wasn’t even visibly dirty. Secondly, it shouldn’t show perfectly normal temperature in case if the lens isn’t clean. The fact that it repetitively can show normal temperature in case of high fever is shocking. Show details

Instant convenience

Within seconds, I can easily take my baby's temperature by simply placing it on their head or ear. It's a game-changer for active, wiggly babies who can't stay still. No more struggles like with the underarm thermometer.

Precision

After numerous attempts, I've learned that the most precise and consistent readings come from using the ear thermometer rather than the infrared option. Ensuring correct placement inside her ear consistently yields identical readings each time Show details

Dangerously inaccurate

I’ve had this a few years. It has never registered a temperature despite oral thermometers reading a fever!
Finally replaced it and last night the new Braun thermometer I bought read 40.6 and this one read 36.6!!
Dangerous product as it is not accurate and absolute junk.

Perfect for overnight feeds

I leave this warmer running over night. Pop the bottle in at bed time, turn it on and through the night I have a bottle immediately ready to go! I used to use the perfect prep formula machine but this is SOOO much better as it really gives you an instant bottle in the middle of the night, no prep! Show details

Inaccurate and dangerous - do not purchase

I have had this thermometer for a few years. It seems to work for the first few months.
Since then it has never registered a temperature over 36.4°. As my son is now a bit older I am able to check with an ora thermometer - example this morning Cherub Baby 36.4° - oral thermometer 38.2°.
I would not recommend this thermometer as it unable to detect a fever, and if as a parent you trust the reading it could be dangerous.
I think as another reviewer suggested I might just add it my son’s medical kit, that’s all it’s good for. Show details

Inaccurate. Shows low temp when actually a fever is present!! Dangerous product

This thermometer consistently showed a normal temp even when I was sure my baby had a fever. Last night this was proved when we went to the ER and baby had a high temp. Meanwhile this thermometer showed normal temp!!!! What a piece of junk and not only that it's dangerous. Do not buy!!!

Wildly inaccurate - my poor baby

Have been using this with our 9 month old baby for 7 months over which time he's been sick multiple times, whenever he's felt warm I've used this and it's told me his temperature is normal. This week he felt REALLY hot and it came up normal so I finally twigged it might not be accurate and after buying another cheaper thermometer found his temperature was 39.4 and so tested for COVID and he has it, poor little bub.

I now am riddled with mum guilt about all the times I thought he was fine and probably just going through a growth spurt or something where what he really needed was fluids and paracetamol - my sweet little baby I'm sorry I trusted the very clearly false online reviews over you :-( Show details

Best thermometer yet

I wasn't sure whether to buy this as its a touch thermometer but its totally worth it. I reckon its more accurate than the touchless ones. Show details

Finally found it!!

I'd almost given up on forehead thermometers for getting so many innaccurate readings. TIP if the forehead reading looks a bit higher than usual check in the ear, because the ear reading is usually a few points higher. Show details

A tad fiddly but I got there

I bought this one after reading about how many awards it has. The design feels a bit outdated but when it works as well as it does who cares. I found it to be accurate when I cleaned the probe after each use. Show details

Has never registered a fever since the day I got it

I agree with the other reviews. This thermometer consistently gives me forehead readings of 36° and ear readings of 37° regardless of whether my Braun reads 37, 38, 39 or 40°, from the day I received it. It has never once registered a fever. It is absolutely useless and has basically become a $90 toy for the kids to play doctor with. Very concerning as a parent to a child prone to febrile convulsions. I absolutely do not recommend it.

I really like the functionality but it keeps de-calibrating

I have had two of these thermometers now over 3 years, although I really like the functionality and how easy it is use - both of them started giving inaccurate readings after a while. The first lasted around 2 years but the second one has just started giving inaccurate readings after 6 months. It's always out by -1 degree. So I have to measure against myself (no temp) to see how much of a fever the baby has. Show details

Hi. My Thermometer doesn't show room temperature any more. I'm away at the moment and really need it! Has anyone experienced this or know how to fix it? I've changed the battery with no success. Forehead and ear temp seems to be working. Thanks.

Thank you for your enquiry. The thermometer will only take the ambient room temperature after the clock has been set.

I hope this information helps.
