|Monday sick day with Roary.|
Taking temperatures has become a fun activity because P and J can take their temperatures independently. I recently received two Braun Thermometers to try in our home. The first one, from Influenster was the Braun Thermoscan which is a quick easy read in the ear. The second arrived from Klout and is the new Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer. These are both super easy to use, they read incredibly fast, and are easy to read.

When taking temperatures we have a silly routine of using every thermometer in the house. This started because the Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer was always telling me that Jack had a temperature. This thermometer also has color coded readings: green = normal, yellow = slight fever, and red = fever. Several readings on Jack's forehead have been in the red even though he had "normal for J" energy, appetite was good, and had no other symptoms that would indicate illness. We have quite a collection of thermometers that we have accumulated over the years. Three oral, two forehead, and one for the ear.

I don't know why the Braun No Touch + Forehead reads high or maybe it is that the others read low. We do utilize more than one thermometer to confirm a fever but more than that we watch for other symptoms: energy level, appetite, complaints of being sick, etc... So far we have remained healthy this season except for P's recent cold battle this week but that has been minor overall.
*I received the Braun Thermoscan free from Influenster. I received the Braun No Touch + Forehead thermometer free from Klout. All opinions are my own.
