It is the time of the year when kids start to get sick. As they return to school, they are exposed to many more germs and viruses. As hard as you try, kids can get sick. It is just inevitable.
A sick kid is not a good time for either parents or kids. As a mom, it is the time when I feel the most helpless. I wish I could “kiss away” the fever, but it just is not possible.
I vividly recall the time our oldest daughter had a temp of more than 104. That was the longest night of my life. I did not sleep. I used our ear thermometer, but even that was not very accurate. My husband would take her temp and it would show one result. We would try again and get a different number. Our thermometer was not as accurate as we needed for it to be.
I so wish that I had one of these Kinsa thermometers back then! It works perfectly every time. What is cool is that it just plugs into your phone and that is where you see the results. No squinting to see the numbers on the digital thermometer (which also often takes some time).
It isn’t just accuracy, but the thermometer can even let you know if it is not in the ideal location to get the perfect reading. How many times have your kids not held the thermometer under their tongue in the right way to get a good reading. Kinsa actually lets you know if you need to make an adjustment.
It is more than just a thermometer. You can track symptoms as well. This can be very helpful if you have to make a visit to your doctor’s office. Just show him or her the records to help with determining what might be wrong with your child.
Here are all of the reasons to love this thermometer:
