Couldn’t live without this thing with two kids now especially. Takes a second to get a general temp, can use when they’re sleeping.

My son loves doing it himself now! Just keep the extra caps out of reach or you will have to go buy more because they use them all or at least use them to build things!

We love ours too, only wish the display would light up for those night-time readings. Sort of defeats the point if you have to use a flashlight (which wakes up the kid) to read the temperature.

We just step into the lit hallway to see the temp. A bit of an inconvenience, but minor really.

My youngest was recently dealing with a temp of around 103. Needless to say she slept a lot and we were taking her temperature often. For us, it was a real PITA to not have a lit display. Hands-down this is the best thermometer out there, I just think it's a no-brainer to make it a backlit LCD (like every other digital thermometer), especially considering the price of the unit and the money they make on the refills. Honestly I'm surprised they haven't done so yet.

IMO, forehead one is more convenient and no tips, worth the premium, new model also does food and milk temperature

Edit: And adults also...to screen all your guests :D

^ This if you're expecting a baby. The ear one's aren't recommended because they may not be that accurate for a newborn
Wallet safe...

Whichever one you get make sure to take some normal temperatures before checking someone who is sick.

Humans all have a variety of normals so high for one person might be another ones' normal.

Also keep in mind that ear and forehead and underarm and butt temperatures will all be different so comparing them to a single number is a bad idea.

Current Costco one does have backlight. I bought one during the last sale, and can confirm.

Consumer reports rate Braun thrrmoscan thermometers average or below average on accuracy and repeatability. A wrong reading especially in infants can be dangerous.

From the Mayo clinic:
"Additional research suggests that temporal artery thermometers are the most accurate alternative to rectal digital thermometers for taking a child's temperature."

We have an Exergen temporal thermometer and generally found it to be about as accurate as a sun-dial. Once we got the Braun we stopped using it altogether. Exergen's are no bargain basement brand either, so I'm wondering which one they used for testing.
