Do you know someone who is expecting and will be attending a baby shower for them soon? Since becoming a Mom, I have started putting together a running list of things that are my go-to baby shower gift items. One of them, is a baby thermometer.
Before my oldest daughter arrived, friends of mine hosted a beautiful baby shower for me inviting family and friends of mine to attend. The party was filled with “dirty diapers” that we had to guess the contents of, wearing safety pins and not saying the word “mom” and several other typical shower activities. Beyond the activities that night there were several gifts that really stood out and have continued to be used to this day.
I was given a Braun ThermoScan5 as one of my gifts. Little did I know how often that gift would be put to use. It’s had a permanent place within our daughter’s bedroom so that we know where it is and can grab it whenever needed. It’s seen us through first colds, teething, pneumonia and so much more. Not just with our first daughter, but both of our girls. It’s been helping us for 5 years!
Braun has great options for thermometers. There’s the Braun ThermoScan5 ear thermometer. It measures the infrared heat generated by the eardrum and surrounding tissue. The ear provides a location that will accurately show the core body temperature on a thermometer. It’s very easy to check a child’s temperature within seconds using the small, soft tip of this thermometer. The other option, is the Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer. With two modes; no touch and touch, you can easily get your child’s temperature. Imagine checking your child’s temperature in the night without waking them thanks to No touch mode, plus you can also put it on silent so there will be no beep sound when the temperature is taken.
As a parent, I appreciate how easy Braun has made taking a child’s temperature. Gone are the days of having to get help when checking. Braun has helped give me peace of mind when checking my child’s temperature. I am that parent who will go into my kid’s room at night and check on them when they are sick and sleeping. Now, I don’t have to worry about them waking up. Even better, is the fact that there is a colour coded display letting you know for certain that a temperature is normal, above average or high.
This is why I’ve added Braun thermometers to my baby gift list. I can pick the Braun ThermoScan5 and Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer up easily from my local London Drugs I know how much I appreciated being given peace of mind when it comes to fevers and taking my child’s temperature. I want the same for those I know with children. Temperature readings should be easy and not add to the stress when a child is not feeling well.
