Two weeks ago, my daughter had possible exposure to Strep Throat. So when she started running a
fever, I spent three days chasing her around the living room with the thermometer to try to keep her
temperature down as much as possible. Thankfully it was a short-lived sinus infection rather than Strep,
but it still was a long couple of days for all of us. When Hayla got sick, we started talking about how to
face illness once our second child is born this Fall. Because, while the 6-year-old may tolerate being
harassed every half an hour for a temperature reading, a newborn will not be as forgiving.
But fever in babies is a dangerous thing – so harass them we must. Thankfully, infanttech has panicked
new moms in mind, offering a new kind of thermometer to help keep worried parents and sick kiddos at
ease, called the smarttemp Bluetooth thermometer.
Smarttemp is a high-tech thermometer that allows parents to track their child’s temperature
consecutively for a 24-hour period without constantly disturbing them each time a temp reading is done.
Unlike traditional thermometers, parents have to manually monitor their baby’s fever with routine
checks, which can lead to a stressed out baby and exhausted parents. Instead, the smarttemp is a small
blue monitor that is placed under the baby’s arm with a reusable adhesive pad (there are multiple
included with the thermometer). Through Bluetooth technology, the monitor sends real-time
temperature readings directly to the parent’s smartphone.
- Send alerts directly to your smartphone if your child’s temperature rises to a dangerous degree
- Alert parents of medicine reminders so you’ll never worry when it’s time for the next dose
- Create temperature graphs up to a 7-day period that can be shared with your child’s doctor
- Be used to check bath water temperature (the monitor is waterproof!)
- Be used on children up to its 60lb weight maximum
Knowing that I’ll have the smarttemp here from the moment baby comes home is a huge relief. I like that
the monitor is thin, lightweight, and smooth, so it won’t irritate a baby’s skin, but also seems incredibly sturdy to withstand being slept on by a cranky kid.
Infanttech smarttemp bluetooth thermometer is available at Kohl’s or on infanttechs’s website.
