we are lucky that W never gets ill really so have never felt like I missed not having one.
But I probably should have one in the house really.
We got loads of mothercare vouchers when B was born and haven't really used much of them yet as we already had pretty much everything from W.
So I'm thinking I could use them to buy a thermometer.
Which one do you have and do you recommend it?
is it better to get one you put in the ear (but then you have to buy replacement cap things?), or ive seen ones for behind the ear or the forehead. Are these reliable?

We have the Braun thermoscan too, and I'd definitely recommend it as it's very quick and easy to use. I couldn't imagine trying to get J to sit still while I poked a thermometer under his tongue or arm, he'd be far too wriggly for me to get a decent reading!

its not all singing all dancing really and it will last so a decent investment. Our doc uses the same.

Thanks ladies. Ck I think that's the one our doc has too.
If I'm going to get one and have loads of vouchers anyway I may as well get a good one

A is 5 and L is nearly 4. We had one, it got lost and I e never replaced it. Can't say Ive missed having one.
L gets a rash if he has a temp and I can tell by touching them if they are hot.
