Do you love ear thermometers for when your kids are sick or would you rather leave it at the store?

Leave it.   You get false positives if your kiddo has an ear infection/inflammation.  We use the infrared no touch thermometer.  It also has a food/drink setting so you can use it for other applications like checking the temp of liquids, cold food, cooking oil in a skillet, etc...  Totally worth the money

We've never had one, but I haven't heard great things about them so we just stick to our regular thermometer.
