I never thought I'd have to read the instructions for a thermometer. BUT it pays off. And um, remember to remove the cap. Otherwise you will not get accurate readings. :)

We've had ours for over a year. Our son had played with it and thrown it couple times off the bed and it still works perfectly. It'll beep once you hold the button to begin the temporal scan, it'll beep a 2nd time when temp is read. Let go of the button, and you read the temp. Our son, now 16 mos do...see moreof the reviewer's review

I tried three different types of thermometers, which all failed to work when I needed them to. When you have a sick child, who's crying, not feeling well & need an accurate reading in a hurry, there's nothing more frustrating than a thermometer that won't work. This thermometer is great because it t...see moreof the reviewer's review

love it because when the baby is crying and fussy, this is so easy to swipe across the forehead and get an accurate reading. I originally used the under armpit method and it takes forever to get a reading and when the baby is crying, you need responses quick.see moreof the reviewer's review

I don't know how anyone gets an accurate reading. I read the directions multiple times...swear that I was doing it correctly...and got ridiculously different reading each time I did it. Anywhere from 99 to 104 on the same kid. I returned it and went back to a basic thermometer and I at least get ...see moreof the reviewer's review

Not for toddlers. It is nearly impossible to keep this perfectly flat against a toddler's forehead white you swipe. Unlike the doctor's office, the end is not flat. Reading were all over the place when used on a moving target like a 1 year old. I literally dug through the trash for the package to re...see moreof the reviewer's review

Purchased this thermometer for the use of my daughter due to the length of time it took with axillary temp. Got this thermometer on sale. Its a horrible product. Very inconsistent readings. Tried several times on myself, husband, and daugther each time - got several different readings. Returned ...see moreof the reviewer's review

I was excited after reading all of the great reviews on this thermometer on different websites. I purchased online at target.com and picked it up that same day. Targets customer service was great. However, when I got home, I followed the steps, put the batteries in and I kept getting an error readin...see moreof the reviewer's review
