Mothers Touch Thermometer Review and Giveaway

Winner - Comment 112 - charisma said...Liked Temple Touch on FB.

One of the worst things as a parent is seeing your children sick. It's something that you can never really prepare for, and something that you can't completely prevent. No matter how careful you are, kids get sick!

When my girls are sick, they absolutely hate how often I check their temperature. They tolerate the exergen scanner temporal thermometer, but refuse to allow me to stick a normal thermometer anywhere near their bodies.

When I first started looking for products to highlight during this event, I discovered a new product that makes taking a child's temperature even easier - Mother's Touch.


Mother's Touch is a new temporal thermometer that uses R.A.T.E. technology to measure a child's core body temperature, by placing the sensors directly on the forehead.  It's been clinically tested and you don't have to add a degree or two when it's finished!


I was excited about the product, but was hoping that I wouldn't have the need to test it for quite awhile.  Unfortunately Bid got sick, and I had to use it the next day.

Mothers Touch was really easy to use.  First press the button on the display to turn it on.  Then all you have to do is slip the thermometer on your finger like a ring, and place the sensor side directly against the forehead near the temple.  


Then hold the thermometer in place 6-8 seconds until the thermometer beeps.  And you have an accurate reading.

Since Bid was sick, we decided to test our new Mothers Touch against our exergern scanner.  The readout was virtually the same, but Bid didn't squirm away from the Mother's Touch.  It was very convenient!

To Buy - Mother's Touch retails for $29.00 and can be purchased online or at Walgreen's.  I love the ease of use and the convenient size.  I also like that because it only touches the forehead, I can use it on as many kids as I need without sterilizing it in between uses.

To Win - Mother's Touch is giving away a thermometer to one of you!

1st Mandatory Entry - Go to Mother's Touch and then come back and tell me another feature of the thermometer that I didn't already mention here!
