Among the must-have buys for babies and toddlers is a bath thermometer. I know there’s a whole elbow test to assess whether the water is too hot, but honestly, I would rather trust science when it comes to temperature, especially at bathtime, which is already a bit stressful, and let’s face it, not every baby loves getting into water.
Back in the day when I used a bath thermometer for my child, it took a few minutes to get a reading (ie eternity when trying to manage a niggly baby), and I had to squint hard to see the temperature. Nowadays, there are digital devices, like the Philips AVENT digital bath and bedroom thermometer that is quick to get a temperature reading, and easy to read.
It has a range of 10 – 45 °C, is really easy to use and floats. It has a flower shape and a good grip, which means it could double as a bath toy.
The thermometer can also be used for rooms, so you essentially have two devices in one. The Philips AVENT thermometer complies with all relevant toy and safety standards, meaning the product has been thoroughly tested to guarantee it’s completely safe.
It’s available at Baby City, Toys R Us and Baby Boom stores nationwide for a recommended price of R283.14.
