  • Are You Risking Your Baby's Life?

    Jun 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to use, inexpensive
    Cons: Highly inaccurate, most parents read too early, inaccurate information may lead to dangerous mistakes

    Summary: Every parent knows the terror that a fever can bring, especially when it's your little one that's burning up. We've been told to call the pediatrician for any fever over a certain level, but most of us really, really hate to get out that rectal ... read more

  • Tragic Deception?

    May 3, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The companies will make money
    Cons: Inaccurate, doctors will not trust, false sense of security

    Summary: I am definitely in the minority here. These fever thermometers were some of my greatest disappointments. My son was forever getting ear infections. They came with nasty, quick rising fevers. I thought the forehead thermometers were a gift from ... read more

  • DO YOU OWN FISH?

    Apr 10, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: I used it for my fish tank, when mine broke.
    Cons: Read on....

    Summary: Oh I know, your wondering why I had a title like that, for an item that measures your temperature. Well, let's explain how I feel about this item. If you own a fish, you will understand what I am about to say. I purchased the same item from a fish store, ... read more

  • Forehead vs. Digital

    Apr 9, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Fast, easy, inexpensive
    Cons: does not show the actual temp.

    Summary: I have used the forehead thermometer, but am not impressed with it. It is a fast, easy way to tell if your child has a fever. Although, if the product shows that they do, you are supposed to use a different thermometer to get the exact reading. That is ... read more

  • Forehead Fever Reading?

    Apr 6, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Inexpensive, Pain-free
    Cons: Questionable reliability, Not useful when calling MD

    Summary: Mothers have this inborn ability to place a hand on a child's forehead and announce whether or not they have a fever. My mom got so good at it, she'd even give a reading that was usually pretty accurate. More accurate, in fact, than the Forehead ... read more

  • Forehead Fever Thermometer is hot stuff!

    Mar 15, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The patient can sleep while you check on him or her
    Cons: Not absolutely accurate

    Summary: I was babysitting this weekend for a friend with a sick little girl (now all better, thank G-d.) Because this child has had convulsions related to high fevers, her parents are very serious when it comes to monitoring her temperature. In the past, to take ... read more

  • Better Than Guessing

    Mar 2, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: The Forehead Fever Thermometer can be used on a sleeping child.
    Cons: The Forehead Fever Thermometer is not super accurate.

    Summary: The Forehead Fever Thermometer can best be ranked somewhere between feeling with your hand and a good ear or oral thermometer. As with any externally applied thermometer, accuracy is an issue. However, ease of use when you have a wiggling, crying, ... read more

  • The best thing since sliced bread for kids with fevers!!

    Feb 27, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Price, ease of use, accuracy
    Cons: That this was not thought of when my oldest son was first born.

    Summary: The Forehead Fever Thermometer is a big fan in our household. I am the mother of four kids ranging from 4-14. The oldest two kids are pretty good about taking their temperatures under their tongues, but the younger two give me the troubles. ... read more

  • Quick Reading on Squirmy Children

    Feb 23, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Can get a quick reading to determine if there is a fever present
    Cons: not as accurate as other high quality temperature measuring devices

    Summary: I was surprised to learn that these things were still around. With the finicky nature of the American population, I would have thought interest would have died out. We used these items twenty-five years ago for my children. At that time the only other ... read more

  • Cool as a Cucumber

    Dec 23, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: inexpensive and non-toxic
    Cons: not accurate enough to be the only thermometer in the house

    Summary: With two kids, and elderly mother-in-law and two parents in the house, any ordinary "first-aid" item gets quite a work out in our house. After watching my kids (now aged 7 & 12) break two glass mercury thermometers while shaking them ... read more

  • Doctor Said to Throw it Out

    Jul 10, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy to use, easy to clean, easy to store
    Cons: sometimes hard to see colors, does not seem accurate

    Summary: When I called my doctor to report baby's fever, he wanted to know what kind of thermometer we used. He said he didn't trust readings from ear or forehead thermometers. He recommends taking a baby's temperature in the armpit with the inexpensive but ... read more

    Not yet rated.
    Pros: reliable, long lasting
    Cons: for older children

    Summary: The forehead thermometer is a good and reliable product. I feel that I can use it on older children easily but I still prefer the ear thermometer when dealing with younger children. the younger children squirm and I am unable to get an accurate reading ... read more

    Pros: Inexpensive thermometer..good for small children.
    Cons: Not so acurate.

    Summary: The Gerber Forehead Thermometer is a great product! I bought 2, one for my home, and the other for my mothers. The thermometer is only about $3.00. I bought it because my older daughter, who was 3 at the time, was running a fever, and I ... read more
