how do you like it? Do you find it accurate?
I bought one today and I am not getting good readings.

Well my oldest hasn't been sick in about 7 years and my younger 2 have had maybe 3 fevers ever between them. I can tell by touch if they have one and would base the need for medical care on their behavior, not a number. Plus only 1 of the times that they've had a fever have I been able to find the thing anyway. That was Halloween, them temp was 104.3. Actually knowing the number didn't change the outcome of letting the illness pass on it's own...but it did freak my husband out!

And it was a digital thermometer, temp taken in the underarm.

My kids almost never get sick and when they do the thermometer is never to be found.

My kids don't get sick often but we keep a couple of thermometers in the first aid box. Most the time when my kids are sick its an ear infection.
