#BacktoSchool with Mother's Touch Thermometer #Giveaway CLOSED

Wednesday, September 14, 2011 Posted by Dina N

In my experience, kids get sick more often when they are back in school. The coughs, the sniffles, and of course the fevers. Dealing with a feverish child is never fun but taking their temperature is a bit easier with the Mother's Touch Thermometer.

The Mother’s Touch thermometer fits on my finger and all I have to is slide it along the temple part of my kid's forehead. Mother’s Touch is clinically tested and uses what’s called RATE technology. In simple terms, the thermometer measures the body's heat flow, calculating core body temperature - not skin temperature - within 6-8 seconds. And I don't need to remember to add a degree when reporting it to the pediatrician. I just have to make sure I wait two minutes between taking my kids' temperatures for the most accurate reading.

Mother’s Touch is easy to use at home and on the go. Whether my children are on the playground, on the soccer field or in bed asleep, taking their temperature is a snap. No more rummaging through the bathroom cabinet for rubbing alcohol or having my kid squirm while waiting to get an underarm reading with a stick thermometer. Now if I could only find a thermometer that magically brings the fever down...

The Giveaway
One lucky U.S. reader of this blog will win a Mother’s Touch thermometer (ARV $29)!

To enter, please comment below how you deal with a fever.

This giveaway is closed. Congratulations to the winner, #237 DonnaP!

    The deadline to enter is September 28, 2011, 11:59pm EST. Open to those with mailing addresses in the U.S. Subject to this site's Official Rules.

      When my kid had a fever, I put a dried small towel wetted with warm water on his forehead, and had him take some medicine. I believe that would help with the fever.

      When my son has a fever, I use a cool patch on his forehead that makes him feel a lot better quickly and give him a fever reducing medicine, which he hates but after that he usually gets comfy and ends up falling asleep.

      I do it the old school way. The thermometer in the buttock, but he is 3 now and I think it is time to change that way, so by winning this product that would help me out a lot.
