Why weeLove the Kinsa Thermometer:

From Googling to photo taking, booking babysitters to ordering diapers – smartphones can simplify almost every aspect of parenting. Now you can add dealing with sick days to that list…

  Kinsa, a smart thermometer paired with an app, helps you track your child’s temperature and symptoms over the course of an illness. This FDA-approved thermometer plugs into your smartphone (no batteries required). Through the app, you can create profiles for everyone in your family to keep tabs on temperatures, medications, and symptoms. This especially comes in handy during chaotic doctor’s visits when you’re trying to grab the stethoscope from your busy baby while giving an ear infection play-by-play. Thanks to Kinsa, you can just hand over your phone.

  The app’s user-interface is easy for mom and dad to navigate and fun for your tot – there’s a bubble popping animation that runs during the 10 seconds it takes to get a reading. Future versions of the app will offer custom community group creation, for example a daycare, playgroup or neighborhood.  So, you’ll soon be able to see the big picture of what’s going on in your area.

  With Kinsa, next time your kiddo is sick… you’ll be cool as a cucumber.

    Really cool that it logs the temperatures but can be a little finiky sometimes. Nothing worse than a sick baby and having to take temperatures multiple times bc you keep getting an error code! Mar 01, 2024

  • I honestly wish I knew about this product long time ago I don’t know when it was available but I wish I had this 9 years ago with my first born this thermometer has been a life saver Aug 14, 2023

  • Didn’t like that you needed to plug it into the phone - needed an adapter for the iPhone. Too many steps May 29, 2023

  • This is great for temps and the app is great, however it’s not compatible with newer phones that don’t have headphone jacks Aug 24, 2022

    I don’t understand why the app is needed to actually read the temperature Jul 20, 2022

  • For some reason it takes SO LONG to read and when we have needed it &it literally has read different temps every 5s increment (97-103) so huge difference esp when you’re concerned about a high fever! Jun 02, 2022

  • Really quick readings! Great for squirmy kids. May 04, 2022

  • I could never get this to work. It was annoying Sep 19, 2021

    Easy to use and the app includes a running list of your temps to track throughout the night. Great to refer back to if you’re at the doctors or ER. Jul 17, 2021

    Very accurate but a little difficult to set up. Sometimes it does not work Dec 22, 2020

  • Q: Does anyone know if future versions will be a forehead/ temporal artery thermometer?

    asked by Tracy V. - Apr 03, 2015

  • They've said that an Infrared Ear thermometer is coming out soon! But not sure about the forehead/temporal artery thermometer.. (unfortunately, I don't think forehead thermometers are as accurate as oral/rectal ones. wish they were!)
