    I like these thermometers as they are quick and easy to use. The only trouble I had was that I couldn’t find the battery for a replacement. Sep 25, 2019

  • This reads so fast!!!! A great product for the diaper bag. Aug 22, 2019

  • Keep it in my diaper bag at all times. Very simple and quick to use thermometer! Aug 04, 2019

  • Had this for years, and it works great! Can't beat the price. Trying a different brand that's not quite as good. I'll be switching back after it wears out. Jul 19, 2019

  • This is very quick and accurate. I love that it glows so you can read it in the dark! Jun 18, 2019

  • This has served its purpose! It’s sometimes a little finicky about reading temperature of you don’t turn it on and let it “reset” before attempting to take another reading. May 21, 2019

  • Simple to read and easy to use. I like that you can set to different ages. Helps take the guess work out of a fever. Feb 09, 2019

    Quick reads are necessary for tiny wiggly babies. Nice that the display color changes to red if the temp is too high. Easy to use rectally for our infant daughter. Jan 11, 2019

    This thermometer is my favorite! It's fast, it's easy to see the results, and it's accurate! Sep 13, 2018

  • I have always felt confident in the reading on this thermometer. It is the only one I measure against our adult one that was always accurate. Sep 04, 2018

  • Fast reading but reading never seems to be accurate. I’d rather have a thermometer that takes a little longer but is more accurate Aug 20, 2018

  • This thermometer was never accurate had three different kinds to make sure I had a consistent temperature. May 03, 2018

    I got this as a 2nd thermometer for diaper bag but like it much better than the other one I have and think I'll get another to replace the one I don't like. I like the colors to tell when to take temp Sep 21, 2017
