thought of buying a ear thermometer for my girl, which brand is better ?
Been using Braun Thermoscan since dear son born, dear son now 6 yrs old still using it. But when trying to use on dear daughter (3mths) the ear 'hole' seem a bit too small to scan..lol.
Although is expensive, i think is good invesment, can get the temperature within sec...
The one i got only for ear scan only, not for forehead. I bought it from pediatrician clinic, i think is pretty accurate cos the clinic still using it. I normally will take from both ears then chose to read the higher temperature because sometime might be not inserted properly then will give a lower reading...Since only take few sec to use, i will take a few readings but normally the temp quite consistent.
i bought a forehead one instead of ear cos it's more hygienic (the ear covers not cheap at all). and at that time, the ear thermometer was not suitable for my boy who was a few months old.
have been using BRAUN since pin's NB.
im cool with it cos get results very fast, n they have memory of the previous temp, so i can monitor easier.
OH i bought the CADI T560 ear and forehead therm at 86 dollars at guardian recently. Thot it was quite convenient cos readings can be taken at an instant..they also got about 10 stored readings..I got it cos Braun would be over 100 dollars and the probe cover is expensive....this one that i bought does not need probe cover so just need to clean it with alcohol after some time....plus, it has 1 year warr....
BRAUN is the top preferred brand recommanded by pediatrician. I saw a promo in Straits Time today under Guardian Pharmacy in house brand $39.90 Digital Ear Thermometer. I am using Osim Forehead Scan Thermometer I also own another Ear Scan which I bought fm Ebay @ $25 (not bad I bought 2 pieces). attached the link in case anyone of you interested :

Ha ic...think Cadi thermometer cost more bcos it has both ear and forehead scan function and it works as a clock display as well...
guess it's GSS and there're many promos...the Cadi thermometer that i bot is also on promo at $86 with 1 yr warr...not sure if other thermometers are on sale or not...
if i am not wrong CK Tang sell Braun at less than $100. There are also some seller on ebay selling at less than $100 incl postage. Go there to search & c if you can grab 1 there.
Anyone using Pigeon thermometer for babies? Is it good and where can i buy it? Thanks...
Using cadi advanced sensing clinical ear and forehead thermometer. It was $136 originally, bought it for $86 from kiddy palace.
braun. most hospital using them!
paid using cda account at Kandang Kerbau Hospital pharmacy.
went to see doc . not sure whether you can just pick up from there and use cda account or not. can try!
Any comments on Combi ear thermometer? Good?
Any comments on guardian ear thermometer? Good?
I work in a hospital, so I bought Terumo ear thermometer for babies (my workplace version is for adults).
I look more for reliability in the readings, than other fancy functions.
Ie. Take and retake the temp in the same ear, it's the same. Take temp in both ears, the readings should not differ by more than 0.2 degrees.
Used it since newborn and have not tried other brands so cannot comment.
I have been using tghe infra-red type..brand thermalfocus
so far so good
so far the most recommanded is still Braun Ear Thermometer. Is the most reliable set but is a bit costly that's all.
