One of the biggest challenges facing parents of babies and toddlers is working out when the little one is just making a fuss and when there’s actually something wrong. The inability of small children to communicate effectively makes it very difficult at times to tell what the problem is. Often your intuition will tell you but sometimes it lets you down. If you do decide that your child is ill you need to remember that when a young child is ill they can deteriorate very quickly and a situation that just requires cuddles could soon develop into something a lot more serious requiring proper medical help. When you do seek that medical help one of the ... Read the complete review

Great product *before* the warranty expires! Our started misreading (e.g. 39.5C instead of 38.3C), which gave us big worries w/o real reason. Contacted manufacturer (01159-437918) for re-calibration and learned that the service doesn't exist. *IF* you are still under warranty, they might have a look, but for the high price one normally pay, one would expect the product to last more than 2 years... I wouldn't recommend if you want a reliable product for more than 2 years... I have more friends who have the same product running into the same ... Read the complete review

My son is a severe epileptic, who is very sensitive to temperature, he will often start fitting once his temperature hits 38c. Therefore it's very important I can keep a check on his temperature when he's ill. However, he also dislikes being held and would kick, bite and generally try to escape while we were waiting for an underarm thermometer to take a reading. Then on one of our many hospital visits they were trialling the Braun Thermoscan, an in-ear thermometer. Wow, it took seconds to take his temperature, was accurate, and most importantly the nurse didn't get kicked!!!! So as soon as we got out of the hospital we took a trip to Boots and spent some of ...

When my son was 2 years old he started suffered from febrile convulsions lot when he had fevers, up till then i hadnt bothered to much and had used a thermometer under the arm or a forehead thermometer but getting him to sit still long enough was a nightmare and i never got accurate readings. Knowing how serious things were i decided i needed to buy a proper one and went straight to mothercare to purchase this and paid about £29.99. There is other make/models available but this appeared to be the best from the packaging and im very happy with it. Its a nice easy to hold shape and comes with a case which it slots straight into. It requires 1AA battery but ... Read the complete review

We bought the Braun Thermoscan about 2years ago now and I really think its the best thing I've ever bought! Our model isnt as snazzy as the pic on here, we have the first model but its still great and does the same job. In short you just place it into your childs ear ever so slightly and press the green button on the top for 1 second, its as simple as that. Then the temperature comes up on the screen displaying in either degrees celcius or farenheit, this is normally a more accurate way of taking a temperature in comparison to forehead thermometers and is certainly more reasuring. It doesnt matter how old your child is either, s/he can be newborn or an ... Read the complete review
