The autumn season has come, it is snowing then rain, the time is favorable for colds ((
Today I want to tell about my opinion about the B.Well baby thermometer.
I met this kind of thermometer in the maternity hospital when, after delivery, a nurse came to us once a day and measured the temperature (as they called it, they read our thoughts))
After discharge from the hospital, I buzzed all the ears of my husband that we needed such a thing (I’m a boiling mom and if I suspect I immediately grab the thermometer) and after the baby’s first illness (at 3 months), my husband gave up and bought this thermometer.
My joy was not a chapel :)
He cost us 890 rubles.
Here is what the manufacturer claims:
Thermometer infrared B.Well WF 1000 frontal / ear
Thermometer frontal, ear infrared B.Well WF 1000 for children. Indispensable for measuring body temperature in the temporal region and auricle. The unique 2 in 1 design allows you to accurately measure the body temperature of an adult or child in seconds. Ideal for young children without disturbing their peace. The measurement time is only 2-3 seconds.
A special sensor and various nozzles allow you to measure body temperature, both in the auricle and on the forehead. Provides comfortable and quick measurement, allows you to measure the temperature even during sleep, without disturbing the child. The device has a scanning mechanism for determining the temperature at which information is read from several points. It allows you to measure the temperature of the liquid without immersing the thermometer in the liquid. Has memory of the last measurement.
With this thermometer we measured everything:
The thermometer took pride of place on the bedside table near the bed, as the most necessary apparatus.
If friends with children came to visit us, then collective temperature measurement could not be avoided :)
The battery worked at this pace for about 2 months.
During the daily temperature measurement, it turned out that the thermometer can trick up to 0.5 degrees, and if you measure it, then the probability that it will show the same figure 50/50.
She stopped and repeated a couple of seconds later. Well, my body could not warm up for 5 acts in 10 seconds !!
And everything would be fine ..... if not for one case when my son was 5.5 months. one day the son became sluggish, his throat was red, there were no more signs, I naturally grabbed a thermometer and measured the temperature every hour and the thermometer showed me the temperature within the range of (up to 37 degrees). After a while, the thought crept in me that he was brazenly deceiving me and I decided to measure the temperature with an ordinary mercury thermometer - and that I saw 38.4, I didn’t believe it, measured it electronically, he showed it to a dream 37.2 (((((((((
How could he !!!! ???
Since then I do not believe him.
When it comes to measuring the temperature of water, air, food - a run of 2 degrees does not matter much, but when it comes to body temperature, these 2 degrees are too much (agree 36.6 and 38.6 - there is a difference).
For the sake of interest, I decided to compare temperature measurements of 3 different thermometers: mercury, infrared and digital. As we see the hero of our review is an optimist, when the temperature is lowered he shows numbers more, when the body temperature is elevated he lowers it with his readings.)))
Most often I use digital, and if something is wrong (with health), then I measure it as mercury. It is easier to sit down with a child for 1 minute than to fear that the thermometer may break.
Bottom line: Convenient - yes! I pressed the button and voila, do not pinch the child, keep him when he beats in hysteria. but I most likely will not recommend, because distrust remains after each measurement, did it show the truth this time ??
PS while the review was hanging in drafts, the child was sick, there was a temperature, and the thermometer deceived us again, but this time I did not believe in it blind, but was based on tactile sensations (the child’s pens were hot) and after I measured it with another thermometer again made sure that it is definitely not worth recommending it !!
Thanks for your attention!! Health and love to you and your loved ones !!
