Vicks Behind Ear Thermometer Review


There are a lot of things we go through as parents that can be difficult. I think all parents agree that having a sick little one is never any fun. I was always so torn when they would finally drift off, wondering if I should risk not monitoring their temperature, or risk waking them up. Of course, I always opted to check the temperatures, and more often than not that resulted in a woken, cranky and still sick little one.

It’s been a long time since I had very little kids and things sure have changed a lot. There are now options for monitoring temperatures that are not at all invasive and wouldn't wake up even the lightest sleepers. Vicks has a Behind Ear Thermometer that is easy, fast, and gentle enough not to wake up sleeping children. I really love how easy it is to use. You can be using it out of the box in under a minute.

To get started all you do is pull off two bits of plastic, one over the display and the other in the battery compartment. Now you are ready to use the thermometer as the batteries are included and already installed. To use it, you press the power button and wait for the okay. Then you place the orange ring on the neck just below the ear lobe. Press and hold the start button, and when it beeps you are done. It’s so simple and very accurate when used correctly. I double checked my results with an oral thermometer.

If you are wanting to see how well your medicine is lowering the temperature, it also has a memory mode where you can view the last 8 readings. To view the stored readings you just press the M button which is right above the power button. Another feature I really love is the automatic shut off. There is no off button for me to forget to push, it simply shuts itself off after a short amount of time with no use.
