I often write about products that I’d rather not live without, one of which is definitely a digital thermometer. As a new mom I knew I didn’t want to fiddle with thermometers, especially if my child was niggly, sick and uncomfortable, so I bought a digital thermometer, which I still use five years later.
I recently tried out Braun’s NTF3000 no-touch and forehead thermometer, which in my opinion sits at the top of the thermometer food chain.
Why it’s so good is because it doesn’t ever need to touch a forehead to get a reading – it has an ultra-sensitive sensor, so that you can get a quick and accurate reading on touch, and from a distance. This means that you can take your child’s temperature while they’re sleeping, without potentially waking them up through prodding and touching.
The NTF3000 is available from leading retailers, including Baby City, DisChem, Clicks, Baby Boom, Babies R Us, and Kalahari and Takealot for around R899. While it sounds pricey, I still think it’s great value for a device that will last ages, and be used a lot.
