Braun Forehead Thermometer Review #BraunTherms

If you have read any of my previous posts, you will have known by now that I am a mom of 2 girls ages 2 and 5. I don't like it when they misbehave or fight (most of the time they argue over little things) but I prefer them being active (and arguing with each other) than when they're sick.

When I was their age, I remember my mom using the glass thermometer with mercury inside under our armpits or under our tongue to take our temperature. I remember when I was younger, it felt like forever when my mom needs to check our temperature (okay it's only about 3 minutes but when you're young 3 minutes feels like forever). After taking our temperature, she wipes the thermometer with cotton and alcohol. When I was around 12 years old, I remember we had a Braun automated ear thermometer and it took our temperature faster than the glass thermometer. Now with newer technology, the forehead thermometer is becoming popular.

Before trying the Braun Forehead Thermometer, I used a Spongebob digital oral thermometer for my girls. They have to put it under their tongue for about 20 seconds for it to take a temperature reading accurately. My problem would be for my 2 year old daughter who can't do this for 20 seconds. I have to take her temperature 2 to 3 times to make sure that the reading is accurate and correct.

As a member of Influenster, I was one of the few members chosen to try the Braun Forehead Thermometer. I was very excited and giddy when I received my Influenster VoxBox for the Braun Forehead Thermometer and I couldn't wait to try it on my daughters (specially my 2 year old daughter).

I opened the box and saw that batteries were already included. :) There's also a hard plastic cover to cover the tip of the thermometer when not in use.

Here is a short video of me using the Braun Forehead Thermometer on my 2 year old daughter.


I was SO amazed that it took only 3 seconds to take my daughter's temperature (oh yeah that was sooo fast!). I just had to sweep it across the brow to the temple and then back and Voila! The Braun Forehead Thermometer took her temperature already. The screen light also changes when the temperature gets warmer. The green light indicates a normal temperature. When there is a slight fever, the light would indicate a yellow color and when there is a high temperature, the screen light would indicate a red color. This is perfect for middle-of-the-night readings.

Now I can take my 2 daughters' temperatures easily and with no fuss since the Braun Forehead Thermometer reads their temperature in just 3 seconds. :)

I LOVE my new Braun Forehead Thermometer and I am so glad I was selected to try the new Braun Forehead Thermometer. You can take advantage and buy one now and get a $10 online rebate.

  1. I would suggest that people should use this kind of thermometer because it is very convenient and really effective. People should not worry about passing through bacteria everywhere your homes.

  2. Oh, forehead thermometers are the best thermometers that every parent should have. If you have this on hand, life as a parent will become easier.
