  • Yes I just bought one actually. It's just a Walgreens brand. SOOOOO much more convienent. My son won't hold still for rectal or armpit thermometers so I really needed this. It takes like 5 seconds.

  • I wanted one, and actually asked for one on my registry. My cousin who has a 3 month old baby has one and she told me not to waste my $$ or anyone elses on it that if her baby makes the slightest movement it doesnt read and you have to start over. She said she went and bought a ear thermo which is wonderful. The ear thermo is also what I have always used on my 8 yr old since he was little... I guess I will just be going with that instead of buying the new temporal one.
