Advantages: Colours show if your room is too warm and there is a digital readout as well
Disadvantages: It needs to be positioned close to the sleeping baby
WHAT IS IT?
A digital room thermometer for use in a nursery or wherever a newborn baby sleeps. It shows the temperature of the room on the digital readout and lights up different colours based on the keeping the temperature at a safe level.
The Grobag Egg is egg shaped and works as a nightlight as well as a thermometer. The whole egg lights up in a glow and the panel that shows the temperature is permanently lid to show the sharp numbers up. The egg has a flat bottom so is steady and won't fall over.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
You will know from the colour the egg is glowing whether the baby's bedroom is a safe temperature, there is a card in the box with the key to the colours.
BLUE --- Too cold
YELLOW --- Just right
ORANGE --- Warm
RED --- Too hot
These colours run through a range of temperatures so that's when it's useful to read the temperature and use your judgement to see if you need to open a window or turn the heating down.
WHAT I THINK
This is invaluable for me because my family has suffered with cot death and I take all precautions to prevent this devastating thing happening to my babies. I like that I can see at a glance if the room is the right temperature for my baby daughter just by looking at the colour of the egg but I have also learnt to read the temperature panel, it is very warm at night now so I have put a small fan near to the cot to switch on if the egg shows me the room is getting dangerously warm.
It is mains powered and has a long lead. You need to position it as close to where your baby is sleeping as you can for an accurate reading of the level of heat where they are lying.
WHY YOU NEED A GROBAG EGG
Research has shown that you can cut the risk of cot death by placing your baby on her back to sleep and it is also important that they don't get hot while sleeping. A Grobag Egg is an effective way of keeping your eye on the temperature without having to read any thermometer readings.
