Do not waste your money

Ours is similar to the other reviews always read around 36degrees. 13 months after purchase now no longer works and only displays message “LO”. This has always been stored in its case in the baby change table drawers so has not been exposed to any damage or excessive temperatures. Waste of $80, strongly do not recommend! Show details

If I could give it a zero I would

I’m never usually the one to write reviews, but this product is CRAP!!! My daughter had been sick and the thermometer always read 36 degrees and the doctors read 37.5. Inaccurate readings which could potentially be life threatening. Take this product off the shelves, you should be ashamed of yourselves. Show details

Do not buy!

We bought this one when our daughter was born thinking it was the easiest way to take temperature, however we have been so disappointed. The thermometer has never been accurate. Actually both GP and hospital doctors have recommended against using it! All medical personnel actually recommend using traditional thermometer as it’s more accurate. Do not buy! Better things you can buy for $80! Show details

My daughter had a temp of 39.2 and it said she was 36. Luckily I have others at home that are more reliable and won’t be using this one anymore. Show details

Dangerous - do not buy this thermometer

I had similar experiences to others reviewers.
I bought this product in Feb 2021. I consistently question its reading, it always tells me my toddler is around 36. something, when it feels she's hotter. I go back to our old thermometer under the arm and her temp is always higher.
The last straw was yesterday. This product measured her temp as being 36.4...after some time I tested her with the under the arm 39.6...she became worse and close to unresponsive, went to hospital and she was recorded as 40.3! Had I trusted the initial 36.4, things would have gone worse.
Do not buy this, if you are gifted it, give it back.

Dangerous if you have no experience with baby fevers

My 9mo was running a mild fever but her temp kept coming up as 36.6. She is my 3rd and I felt it was more around the 38C mark so I treated accordingly. We went out the next day and she was burning up, lethargic etc and tested her at the COVID check into the venue and she was 39.2. Got her home so I could get her treated and it said 36.6!!!! Rage inducing. If I was an inexperienced parent I may have taken the brand new thermometer, sold at a baby store, as gospel.  Show details

Absolutely horrid

I bought this before my baby was born and never needed it. But now felt like my baby had a temp and went to use it the battery was flat. Put a new battery in it and now it's saying all temp are either lo or hi. Utter rubbish. So dangerous. Saying my baby temp was lo (below 20) when temp was actually 39.9!  Show details
