Very useful

published

This thermometer is excellent for the bath and room temperature. We take it everywhere we go travelling! So handy and great piece of mind when you're not sure what the bath temperature is.

Purchased in October 2018 at Local Pharmacy for A$34.99.

We purchased ours in 2008! I'd do adds for this device. We didn't use it in the bath, just used in our child's bedroom.Has only just died (2018).Replaced the battery in October 2018 but unfortunately the display just says 00.0°c. We were VERY happy with all our Advent products and feel that we got more than we expected. We had the bottles, bottle warmer, thermometer and also the food storage cups which could be frozen then warmed by the bottle warmer. Love your products .

Pretty as a flower

Such a fantastic little bath buddy, going on 2 years strong. We just get water at correct temp then we pull it out of bath - easy as that. Life saver for sure and has been my go to baby shower giftb for friends and family. They all love it.

My Husband Can't Bathe The Baby Without This!

published

There's cheaper bath thermometers than this one but we love it. It's accurate, reliable and nice and soft for the baby and looks good just sitting on the shelf. The only disadvantage that I can think of is that it sometimes turns upside down in the water so you can't see the temperature.

Great thermometer!!

published

This thermometer is so handy. I mainly use it for the bath but is also great for understanding the room temperature as well. In the bath it gives you the temperature quickly so you're not waiting around with the baby. It's great that it's two in one so you don't have multiple devices to worry about. The design is also cute.
Design, use in the bath

Most useful baby product we have

published

This was a great buy - we use it for every bath (including some of my own!), and to test room temperature. It's size and weight is perfect for travel, it works fast - can't fault it! It would be a great gift for any parent, especially new parents who are worried about bath temp for newborns.
Size, speed of temperature display

Keep baby safe with Philips Avent Digital Bath and Bedroom thermometer. It is easy to read and use. Great way to check on bath water temps before bathing the bath. As an added plus, the design is very cute too. This is a great product for all parents to have on hand.

Great Product

published

This thermometer is really handy to have. Just throw it in the bath when running the water and it's so quick and easy to get the perfect temperature every time. Also great to monitor the temperature of bub's room.

It's certainly something we use every day.

I would definitely recommend this product.
Accurate, affordable and easy to use

Great Thermometer!

published

I can't fault this thermometer. We have it sitting in our nursery and it's really handy to know the temperature and therefore what to dress bub in with her sleeping bag. I also use it every bath. I even use it for my own bath!! For me it's a novelty, but so handy to get the bath temperature just right for bub every time. Great gift idea too!

Useful and durable

published

I asked for this as a baby shower gift and it's been the only useful thing that I received. Works well in the bath, durable and baby likes watching it bob around. Haven't tried it in the bedroom as I use a Grobag thermometer to remind me what layers to put on bubs.
Durable, floats

Great product!

published

Its very accurate and easy to use. Feels sturdy and its really waterproof. We just leave it in the tub as we fill it with water to get realtime reading. I just wish they have other designs which are more matching for boys or girls. Also, the display is big enough for bath temp, but a bit small for room temperature.
Accurate, sturdy, quality built
Design not very apt for baby boy, display a bit small for room temperature

Piece of mind purchase for a new mum!

published

Purchased it online before bub was born. Loved that it could be used for both room temp & bath. I find it extremely accurate, I used it everyday during bath time for the first few months until I learnt to sense the correct water temp for myself. I use it in our room now, still so accurate & great now that it's summer so our room doesn't overheat or I can change DD into something a little cooler. Perfect to check the temp before bedtime too so I can make sure bub will be warm enough. A great purchase.
Simple to use, not overly expensive, great for piece of mind

This has been a lifesaver and worked exactly as stated

published

This thermometer was brilliant as it worked in the bath and bedroom. I am still using it everyday and take it away with me when we go on holidays!
Inexpensive, waterproof, accurate and portable
Would have been even better if it lit up at night

Perfect and affordable !

Great product!

I bought my first Advent Digital Bath and Bedroom thermometer second hand and have been very happy with it relying on it within the bedroom and daily baths.

I have now bought another one for my second baby's bedroom and expect to be just as happy.
Inexpensive compared to other products on the market. Reliable and unobtrusive in room.

A great product I use everyday

published

I found this thermometer great as I can tell the temperature of the bathroom and can also put it in the water to find out the temperature before I put my baby in the bath.

By using the thermometer I don't have to guess if the bath is to hot or cold.

I found it easy to use. Baby can't break if it's left in the bath or dropped.

Nice design looks like flower and easy to read and I also like that it is digital. Being small means I can take it to another room to find out the temperature.
Can use in a room or in water, small, won't break, easy to use.

Love this product. Easy to use, fast and accurate. I always have cold hands so use it daily for babies bath and am confident that the temperature is right. It can be used in and out of water making it versatile.
Everything! Glad I purchased this.

I bought this for my husband who was very afraid of having the bath temp too hot or cold for the baby. It has been great, we have used it at least daily for the last five months. I love that it floats on the water in the bath. It is fairly quick (compared to my other thermometer) and is accurate. you can also use it for the room temperature.

Definately something I will be able to use for years. Really handy, compact product. The fact that u can use in and out of the bath is useful.
love this thermometer. Its really handy. I pop it in the bath while Im filling it up. It tell you what the temp should be and what the temp is.
might be considered expensive I guess but its worth the money.

It's very useful...I've been bathing baby at a more than ideal temperature before I bought this thermometer. It gives a reading of the water fairly quickly. It also sits in my baby's room at night so I got a better idea of how to dress him. Roy Young chemist is sell it below $30, cheaper than other places
Can use in bath & baby room great product!

Digital Bath and Bedroom SCH550

After two years use the battery has died. Is there anyway of changing it? Minus the mold its been very useful!

rjovo
rjovo

There is. You can download the user guide from the Philips website for the instructions which includes the battery type required. We did it but didn't add grease to improve the waterproofing so after changing the battery water starting condensing over the display until it became unreadable - so I'd recommend following that step. We were otherwise really happy with the product so we ended up buying a replacement.

Hi there! To add to the comment of Rjovo, you can find the instruction for replacing the battery here: https://www.download.p4c.philips.com/files/s/sch550_20/sch550_20_dfu_nld.pdf. Please let us know if there's anything else we can do for you.

Hi! I've recently purchased this thermometer and with my baby due in 2 weeks wanted to get a gauge for the temperature of our bedroom but find myself struggling to turn on - screen is currently blank, does it not come with batteries or am I being really stupid? Help appreciated :-)

Hi. The thermometer should come already working. I would return it to where you bought it from, as I read that it's quite difficult to replace the battery. Hope this helps.

Hello, yes, the screen should be on and working. Take back to where you bought it or call Phillips Avent directly. Phillips will ask you for proof of purchase, I think it should work for approx 2yrs so they want to check you haven't had it that long!

Hello Sue, this is not a thermometer for taking a child's temperature.

The Phillips thermometer mentioned above is only suitable to measure bath and room temperature. There are other thermometers on the market which can measure body temperature, room temperature and surface temperature

Hi Sue, thanks for your question. We strongly advise you not to use the thermometer to measure the temperature of your baby, since the SCH550 is made to measure the temperature of a room and water. Please feel free to contact us at 1300 363 391 (if you are in Australia), regarding any other queries about this product.
