Taking an accurate temperature used to mean sitting still with a thermometer in your mouth (or worse) before trying to determine an exact temperature on a tiny mercury scale. Luckily things have vastly improved and it’s easy to get a quick and accurate temperature reading using a digital thermometer.
The Braun Thermoscan ear thermometer is a great all round gadget for every member of the family. The device indicates when it is in the right position to get a precise reading and the temperature is displayed clearly after only a few seconds: perfect for squirmy babies and toddlers. There are also disposable probe covers available that are ideal for use in a school or child-minder environment where hygiene dictates a fresh cover for every use.
