  • Girl, i hope you get an answer, i went down the safety first aisle yesterday looking for a new one. There were so many! My SIL has the one you run over their heads, but they are super expensive.

  • in my experience the faster they work the better, its hard to get a toddler to sit still for 2 minutes get one with like an 8 second read out you can get them for like $10

  • Why? We have a cheap digital (around five dollars from Target). It is accurate and we have had two in 16 years.

  • I heard tha tthe kind you can across the forehead isnt very accurate.I like how it works though.
    The cheap kind have always failed us after a few months.
    I found one in teh baby aisle of walmart by safety 1st for $4.
