product review: braun forehead thermometer + win!

In early December I was selected by Influenster to receive the BraunTherms VoxBox. This meant that I would be the lucky recipient of a complimentary new device: the Braun Forehead Thermometer. Awesome. Honestly though? It was one VoxBox I didn't want to have to use! Fevers stay away from my house, please.

In the midst of closing on our new home, packing, and keeping our condo clean for selling, the arrival of this new gadget was the last thing on my mind. Until Christmas Eve. Sure enough, George came down with croup. On his birthday. And, all of a sudden this new little gadget meant everything. A few days later, Jack caught a terrible cold and we needed it yet again. And, then G got sick again. And Jack got sick again and well...yeah, not fun.


My review: The Braun Forehead Thermometer is now a staple in our home. My boys never liked the ear scan and I never found it to be accurate. This is so easy, non-invasive and was as accurate (for us) as the readings at the pediatrician's office. It is as simple to use as powering it on and moving the scan from forehead to temple and back. The thermometer beeps when it has a read and the display light up to guide parents on the temperature: green - no fever, yellow - elevated temperature, red - fever. The display is even backlit, so no need to turn on a light for late night scans. It's that simple.

Disclaimer: I received this product for FREE from Influenster and Braun in exchange for my use and opinions. These opinions are solely my own and based on my personal product useage.

Wow, that sure would have made life easier when Morgan was a little girl, she hated having a thermometer in her mouth. Glad to hear you love it, hoping you don't have to use it much more this winter. Sending lots of stay well wishes to your sweet little babies.

we need something like that for the daycare! the kids and babies hate having their temp taken under the arm. that would be so much faster. I'll definitely keep in mind for my own future children someday too.
