We love this thermometer, it appears to be very accurate and was so helpful when our little one had RSV and just recently with a throat virus. With this, we can easily check his temperature while he is sleeping without having to touch him or wake him up. We were concerned about the reviews of battery life, but ours has been fine. We have had it for 4 months and still using the original batteries.
This thermometer is fabulous! It not only is a non-contact but takes the temperature of surfaces, rooms, and living organisms. It is very simple to use and for infants truly is the best. Babies are fussy and the less you have to disturb them with anything else besides changing, feeding, and bathing is better for both baby and Mom.
