Tommee Tippee No Touch Forehead Thermometer
About this deal
Once you’ve activated it, it only takes a couple of seconds for the thermometer to display the temperature in its surrounding area, whether that’s the room it’s in, or the water you’ve placed it in. In the bathtub, the thermometer will show you whether you need to add more hot or cold water to get just the right spa environment temperature for your little one which should be in the range of 36.5°C and 38°C. If the water gets to 39°C or above, a red warning light comes on letting you know it’s too hot. You can tell if you or your child has a fever immediately: If a high fever is detected, the thermometer will beep six times and the display will flash red. For a low-grade fever, there are four beeps and a yellow display, and for a normal temperature, it beeps once and the display turns green. Additionally, it can measure surfaces like bath water or formula to make sure they're the right temperature for little ones, and the temperature is displayed in a large font so it's readable.
