The Kidz-Med VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer is a must have for any parent. Over the years, I have used all sorts of means for taking my children’s temperatures, and nothing compares to this one! The VeraTemp thermometer is so easy to use. All you have to do is aim the scanner a couple of inches from your child’s forehead, push the button and voila! In less than one second, you have an accurate temperature displayed in digital numbers on the LED screen.
If you have ever tried to take a baby, toddler, or child’s temperature, you know how hard it can be. They cry and fuss and wiggle and squirm, making it next to impossible to know if you are getting an accurate reading or not. A VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer solves all these issues because you don’t need to touch, startle, or upset your child in order to take their temperature. You don’t even have to wake them up. This thermometer measures the infrared energy given off by our bodies and uses the information to instantly and accurately gauge body temperature.
I knew it would only be a matter of time before one of my children came down with a fever and I’d be able to get a real life experience to use in my review of this thermometer. I was right! Last week, my 7-year-old son got sick. He does not like for me to take his temperature with the under his tongue thermometer and sometimes refuses to let me take it that way at all. The VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer made both of our lives so much easier while he was sick this time around. I was able to monitor his fever throughout the day and night by a simple forehead scan with the VeraTemp.
A neat thing about the temperature display screen is that it will be backlit in green if the temperature is in the 97.3°F and 99.1°F range, orange if it is in the 99.3°F and 100.2°F, and red if it is higher than that. My son would tell me, “Mom, I am feeling like my fever is going to be red,” and I would know that he meant his fever was going up. Sure enough, he would be right. The morning he got better, he ran into my room and was so excited to tell me, “Mom, I scanned myself and I was GREEN!” We all love using this thermometer. I even caught my husband “zapping” all of our kids foreheads the other day when I had the VeraTemp out. I don’t like having sick kids, but this gadget does take a huge stressor off of me when I need to take their temperatures.
Just for fun, I tested the thermometer out on all of my children, including the baby. You can tell from his smiling face in the above picture that using the Kidz-Med VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer didn’t bother him in the least.
I love this thermometer and recommend that you buy one to use with your own children. They are affordably priced and they would even make a great baby shower gift. You can find Kidz-Med VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometers at many different retailers, including Target, CVS, Rite Aid, Amazon.com and Costco.
