VeraTemp No Contact Thermometer from Kidz Med
When you have a sick child at home it’s sometimes rather difficult to take their temperature because they don’t want to be bothered. I recently had the opportunity to review the no contact VeraTemp thermometer from Kidz Med. Bringing up kids just got easier with Kidz Med! This company provides parents and children hassle-free experiences when it comes to taking temperatures, which can be a life saver for both when a child is sick! Kidz Med was founded in 1993 by a doctor and advocate on children’s health and safety matters. Product was received for review purposes and this post may contain affiliate links.
The no contact thermometer is genius! It allows you to take your child’s temperature without touching them, startling them if they are sleeping, upsetting or waking them! We all know how important sleep is to a sick child and the fact the you don’t have to disturb them makes this an amazing product! I know with my toddler, when he is awake and I need to take his temperature he doesn’t want to sit still and keep the thermometer under his arm so this has been and will be a huge help to us! The thermometer is light weight, hand held and battery operated. It measures the temperature of a person based on the energy they radiate. Pretty neat, isn’t it? It also has an auto turn off feature so you don’t waste the batteries, and no worries about having to turn it off, just sit it down when you are done!
All you do to operate this amazing product is this: hold it 2-3 inches from the forehead of the person who’s temperature you are taking. You then push the scan button and the temperature will instantly be displayed on the screen. It’s that simple! The screen is also color coded: it is green when the temperature is normal, orange when the temperature is a bit high and red when it’s high. I absolutely love that feature!
Not only can this thermometer be used for human temperature, it can also be used to check the temperature of a nursery, a baby’s formula, bath water and food! It’s an amazing tool to have when you have a baby! It’s quick and easy and accurate! I used this multiple times to take my son’s temperature and also took his temperature with the under the arm thermometer we had been using (just for comparison purposes) and it was always accurate. I also found it a great tool to check his bath water temperature! I can imagine how helpful this will be when we have a newborn and need it more often!
