Braun thermometer review & giveaway

I was recently asked to review the Braun’s new ThermoScan 7 Ear Thermometer with Age Precision IRT6520 and thought it would be useful for us. I have a toddler who is particularly wriggly at the moment and very fussy about anything being put on his face, including in his ears. When he is ill that fussiness can increase and something like taking a temperature can occasionally turn into a mini-meltdown. The Braun thermometer is incredibly quick and gives your a precise reading in seconds. After a week of testing it out my little boy became so familiar with it that he now actually likes it in his ear and hearing the little ‘beep’ when the reading has been recorded. 

What is interesting about this thermometer is that it has an age adjustable fever guidance system. I didn’t know, or maybe I did and have just forgotten, that the definition of fever changes with a child’s age so what is a normal temperature for a five year old, for example, can be classed as a high fever in a newborn. This thermometer can be set to three different aged settings; 0-3 months, 3-36 months and 36 months to adult. Therefore, this thermometer can be used by the whole family.

The best benefits for us are that the reading is taken in a matter of seconds, the little beeping sound is appealing to my toddler, the thermometer has a night light which is ideal if you want to take the reading in the dark and the reading gives a colour coded display depending on the level of the temperature. I wouldn’t usually spend this much money on a thermometer but actually think it’s really beneficial and I’d happily recommend this to any parent.
