digitals more acurate i think

I just got the nurofen one for £9.99 at the local Lloyds chemist and thats great. only takes seconds and plays a tune when its done. I had an under arm one ank kids didnt like sitting long enough for it to be accurate.

i wouldn't be without a braun ear thermometer now. i bought it a few weeks ago and i wish i had bought it when dd was born.

Doesnt give an age range but it does tell you how to take temp of under 1s nd over 1s so Id imagine it should be ok. Ask in the shop wher you buy it.
