temporal-artery-thermometerIt is almost that time of year for the kids to come down with colds, viruses and other various ailments. With 3 boys in the house, sometimes in the fall/winter months it seems like there is always a box of tissues in one of my hands and a thermometer in the other!

We used to use a standard under the tongue digital thermometer, but that can be downright torturous for kids. It is hard to hold still and keep it under your tongue, sick or not! I can recall having to have my temp checked that way as a child and it was not fun to wait for the beep! Or worse yet, I never liked to be awakened when I was ill to have my temp checked!

I often question the accuracy of a standard thermometer too! If your child isn’t keeping it under their tongue, the reading is not going to be accurate.


When I heard about the Exergen temporal thermometer, I knew this was a must have item for our medicine kit. This thermometer is so easy to use, I really wish I had gotten one a long time ago! All you need to do is either swipe it across the forehead or place it behind the base of the ear and within seconds you have an accurate reading of your child’s temperature!them

Let me tell you a little more about this product:

The TemporalScanner™ comes with four ways to make it even easier to take a temperature:

  1. A softly illuminated display for easy reading in any light – perfect for checking the temperature of a sleeping infant in a darkened room.
  2. Beeping sound indicating scanning can be turned off or on to avoid waking a sleeping child.
  3. Automatically retains the last eight temperature readings for instant recall to check on fever progression.
  4. Ability to switch between Fahrenheit and Celsius modes.

Made in the United States, the Exergen Smart Glow TemporalScanner™ is the number one preferred thermometer by both nurses and pediatricians, and is backed by more than 50 clinical studies proving its accuracy.

Sold in major retailers including Wal-Mart, Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Costco, Babies “R” Us, Toys “R” Us, Kroger and BJ’s, the Smart Glow thermometer’s suggested retail price is $49.99.

Overall, this is not just a thermometer. It is an investment in your family. You can use this on everyone- it is so easy to use that anyone can do it, and best of all, there is no need to wake a sick and sleeping child to check his temp! I think it is well worth the price and for the safety, how sanitary it is and ease of use!
