I'm going to be a great Aunt (again) very shortly and I was having a blast strolling down all the baby aisles at a few stores recently, to purchases some gifts for a shower for the new mom to be. One of the ideas that had been mentioned to me by the soon to be new grandma (my sister in law) was this Safety 1st Soother Thermometer. I use to own a business that specialized in safety products for baby's and children and many of the products where from Safety 1st. I found this company's products to be quite reliable, although like anything, some weren't always as great as they could have been.
This little soother is adorable to say the least and is a great little product from this safety company. It is well constructed and attention to safety is obvious. The soother comes with a little cap that is placed over the nipple portion to keep it sterile when not in use and when it must be used, you simply use it just as you would any other type of soother. The baby sucks on it for a short time and voila, instant, painless and struggle free temperature reading for any ill baby.
This particular product retails for Cdn $16.99 but in my opinion, it is well worth the money. Hopefully my niece won't have to use it very often, but now she will have piece of mind knowing that if she ever needs to take the new baby's temperature, it will be done safely and without difficulty.
A great little idea that according to the packaging, is extremely safe and accurate with sensitive digital temperature sensing.
