1st Birthday Bash : Kidz-Med VeraTemp Non-Contact Thermometer : Review + Giveaway
When our children are sick we want nothing more than for them to get well and comfort them. As parents we have to give them the usually awful tasting medicine and make them sit still or wake them out of a sound sleep to take their temperature so they can get well.
I recently received the Kidz-Med VeraTemp to review. I must admit that I was a bit skeptic at first, I mean how could it give an accurate read without any contact what so ever? I opened the package and gave at a try, baby Digger was sitting and playing so I just placed it about 3 inches from her forehead and it gave a reading of 97.5. This is around her normal temp so I decided to compare put it to the test and compare the temperature read to our forehead thermometer. While baby Digger was sleeping I swiped my old forehead thermometer along her forehead and it read 98.2. Next, I used the Kidz-Med VeraTemp and it gave a reading of 97.9 for difference of only .3 degrees. So I’m happy to report that it is accurate! With Kidz-Med VeraTemp taking temperatures can be a quicker, easier and less eventful. The Kidz-Med VeraTemp non-contact thermometer allows you to take your childs temperature without having to stick it in their mouth, under their arm or in their bum. Just select body temp, click the button and hold it to your child’s forehead and it read the temperature instantly.
Another cool thing about the VeraTemp thermometer is that you can also take the temperature of the room, your baby’s formula, food or bath temperature. It has a back-lit large display so it’s easy to take your child’s temperature in dim settings so you won’t have to disturb them while they sleep. It also has a built-in memory for the last 32 readings so you can easily keep track of their temperature. Plus, because it is a no touch thermometer you won’t have to deal with probe covers anymore.

The Kidz-Med VeraTemp is a great thermometer to have in our home. Baby Digger hardly ever sits still anymore and it allows me to take her temperature a lot quicker and easier before shes crawling on to the next thing. If shes sleeping, I love that I don’t have to disturb her and can still get an accurate temperature. Just be sure when you take a body temperature that you do need to hold it about a couple of inches from the forehead and move any hair out of the way to get an accurate temp. I also tried it out on her baby food using the surface temp setting and tried out the room temperature setting and it read within .1-.2 degrees of our thermostat.. I’m very pleased with the VeraTemp Thermometer and it now has a new home in our Medicine Cabinet.
The Kidz-Med VeraTemp thermometer is available to purchase at Bartell Drugs, Walmart.com, CVS, RiteAid.com, CostCo.com, diapers.com, Duane Read, and FredMeyer for around $40. Find a retailer near you.
