It’s a fact of life that kids tend to get ill more often than adults. Their immune systems aren’t quite up to the superstar standards of ours and they can often get knocked out by illnesses that we would bypass quite easily.
In addition to having a full stocked first aid kit (note to self, still need to get that done!), it’s a good idea to have some sort of gadget for measuring your child’s temperature.
What I didn’t realise, when it comes to taking children’s temperatures, is that different temperatures class as fever temperatures for different age ranges. So what’s ok, temperature wise, for a 8 month old might not be ok for a newborn. Recent clinical research has backed this.
It was quite ironic that Braun got in touch to send us a ThermoScan 7 thermometer to review the week before we all got ill! Of course, we were delighted to be able to use it out properly though, regardless of how terrible we all felt!
