“ Brand: Mothercare / Type: Bath Thermometer „
Love this and find it a very handy product. Cheap and nice to look at for the children. Durable and long lasting material. Just pop it into the bath before running the taps and the easy readable strip indicates if the water is too cold, too hot or just right. Easy to clean too as its of a plastic wipe able material. Was cheap too so i would definitely recommend this product. I have a second bath thermometer but find it harder to read whereas this one is just about the right size and the temperature comes up very quick.
This product is also baby safe and nice to look at as its nice and colourful with a fun picture on it, so it's useful as a distraction for my daughter to play with while I am washing her and I also let her have it while drying her too. Great purchase.
Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer
When our little bundle of joy was born she was lucky enough to receive quite a lot of presents - mostly in the form of pretty clothes, but also hidden amongst the abundance of gift wrap where some more practical items such as the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer. Initially I was really quite sceptical about using a bath thermometer or in fact needing any bath thermometer, because surely you could just as easily test the temperature using your own hand or elbow. However, after finding myself with a tiny newborn with the softest and most delicate skin I became a worrier, and for the first few baths I always needed that second opinion. In fact I have loved having the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer far more than I ever thought I would as it just provides that extra peace of mind, especially during those first few weeks when being a new mum feels overwhelming and it certainly made me ten times more likely to over think even the basics.
So what exactly is the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer, essentially it is a postcard size piece of plastic card that has the Little Circus Mothercare design featured and a small thermometer strip at the bottom. Personally, I love the Little Circus Mothercare range, it tends to be based around bright yellows, reds and blues and features animals that you would typically associate with a circus. It is cute and vibrant. The thermometer strip is really easy to read and interpret, it has three boxes that indicate whether the water temperature of your baby's bath is either too cold (under 36 degrees), ideal (36 - 38 degrees) or too hot (over 38 degrees). I have never double checked the accuracy of the thermometer but I would say that from experience it seems to be pretty accurate and really what it indicates as an ideal temperature is the same sort of temperature that I would usually run for my baby's bath anyway.
I have now been using the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer for quite a few months, and it has certainly come in handier than I would ever have initially thought. So far my husband has yet to run the baby a bath without giving the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer a quick dip first because within seconds you have that extra conformation that the temperature is perfect - it always reminds me a little of Goldilocks - 'it's not too hot, or too cold it is just right'. And I'm sure my little one will be grateful (especially during the first few weeks) for not being washed in too cold a bath for fear of having the water too hot because newborn skin is so delicate.
If you are interested you can purchase the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer for £3.99 from most Mothercare stores or the online store. Personally, I would highly recommend the Mothercare Little Circus bath thermometer it is a relatively inexpensive item that really does come in handy and if anything makes life that little easier during those difficult first few weeks where everything feels a tad overwhelming then I'm all for it.
Five out of five stars.
