Have used in accordance with the directions provided and it still says my babies temp is 36.4 ( took her to the doc and it was over 38!)
Just awful the last thing we need with a sick baby is misinformation
I bought one of this from well known baby store and I never ever had correct results. I can clearly feel my kids are warm but thermometer says otherwise. My suggestion is to avoid buying this product for sake of your kids.

DO NOT BUY !! DANGEROUS PRODUCT
The worst product I ever bought that is important to track your health. I used this product to track my baby temperature and said it was 36 degree while she was obviously suffering from fever. The doctor used a real thermometer and she was 38.9!!! This company should be closed they put lives of our kids and baby in DANGER, totally unacceptable that control quality are not performed on such importante devices.
Purchased in January 2016 for $49.99.
Not accurate at all! Do not buy!
This thermometer is expensive, but does not show the result even close to the correct figure! The $5 thermometer works better than this one. If you rely on the result from this thermometer, The bub life will be in danger!

Worst ever do not buy this thermometer!!!!
I've used this thermometer in accordance with the provided manual and tested it in comparison to other thermometers on my baby when I suspected the numbers it was giving me were incorrect! It spits out random temperatures which are most of the time a normal temperature or a fever and it can be one after each other on the same part of the forehead!! Do not waste your money my local baby shop where it was purchased won't return it without a receipt because it was a gift now I am stuck with this TERRIBLE random number generator that was $50 waste of money. Shocking product they should not be able to sell!!!

“Random number generator”, Emergency Doctor 2017
Our newborn son had his first fever at 3 weeks, or at least that is what this thermometer said. We took him to emergency and they could not find any trace of a fever. They said they call this thermometer “a random number generator” and that “they shouldn’t be allowed sell them”. Due to bub’s age, we had to stay in emergency overnight, even though he didn’t have a fever. So stressful. When discharging us, the nurse gave us a basic digital thermometer and said to use that instead. Don’t waste your money on this. I also asked our G.P., and he agreed they are rubbish.
Inaccurate and resulted in missing my baby's fever
I received this as a gift, followed the instructions to use this device, and everytime I took my baby's temperature it came up as 36.7. After not feeling right about the result, I took my baby to the doctor, and he had a fever of 37.5 - not huge, but when you depend on a device for accuracy, this is simply unacceptable.
Oricom NFS100 Infrared Forehead Thermometer
Please help.why is giving different readings and changed battery flashing. Worried mum baby been immunized now worried sick and its after midnight . What do I do . Its giving me all different readings . I got worst anxiety. My baby girl is so distressed . I had to give her panadol because was in accurate and she was very hot
You can loose your child while trusting to this thermometer!
I used Oricom NFS100 for the first time today. It was showing 36.2 on my boy's forehead all evening. I got a bit concerned, why my boy got so heavy breath? I found our old electronic under arm thermometer which is more than 6y old. It ran up in no time to 38.8. I can't describe level of my anger at the moment!
I have the same issue with it reading around the 36C mark even when the room temp is above the 20C mark! Now its getting to the hotter weather around the 39 degree mark i keep getting different readings if i check one after the other.
Battery sign also shows as flat constantly
Looking to buy a different thermometer and count my losses on this one
Be very careful about the recorded temperature, it might be much lower than it should be.
My family got this for the baby, so I purchased one too from Baby Bunting $50 weeks ago.
It’s easy to be used but I am in doubt about its accuracy; the temperature has been always on the lower side ( 36C mark ). I am a Health Profession and really not very certain about the accuracy. Buyer please be very caution.
PS: The device has a low battery signal even on the first day after purchase.
We have had this thermometer for less than 2 years, it seemed to be working more or less well/accurately till this morning when I took my baby to the GP to realize she had a fever of 39 degrees whereby this thermometer indicated a steady 36.2 ...a real difference which could have put my bubby in danger! I went to the pharmacy to have a third check of her temperature and to check with the pharmacist if I was doing something wrong, but it is just this apparatus that is not working! Not to buy!
The beeping can be abit loud in this thermometer if your baby is not in a deep sleep or is a light sleeper it might wake your baby up. But it holds last few readings and is definitely easy enough to use and clean. Over all happy with my purchase
