We found the best thermometers for kids and babies.
Having a thermometer at home to check your child’s temperature is more important than ever. Thermometers can give parents peace of mind in the middle of the night and also alert them as to when it’s time to call the pediatrician. Taking care of our kids when they are sick is a hard job, made easier by the right tools.
There have been many great advancements in thermometers over the years. Gone are days of wrestling with a cranky and sick toddler while you try to get a thermometer under their tongue. Now you can take your child’s temperature without even having to touch them. Forehead infrared thermometers are perfect for middle-of-the-night temperature checks or for even the youngest infants. There are even disposable thermometers that kids can wear for 48 hours straight.
We especially love app oriented thermometers that allow parents to track their child’s temperatures and even set up different profiles for each kid.
