tommee tippee® Closer to Nature Digital Thermometer Review

Tommee tippee digital ear thermometer

This post was first published on Family Tech in March 20120.

I strongly believe that every parent of an infant should own a digital ear thermometer of some sort. I can tell you from experience with both digital, semi-digital and totally un-digital thermometers that a fancy piece of kit such as the tommee tippee® closer to nature Digital Ear Thermometer is worth every single penny of investment.

The tommee tippee® digital thermometer can give you an accurate reading in just 1 second. I'll say that again - just 1 second! Even if you have a frantic baby or a disruptive toddler you only need to keep them still for 1 second in order to take their temperature. Genius.

Actually, Lara loves having her temperature taken. It is one of her favourite pasttimes and trying to get the closer to nature thermometer off her after use is pretty hard! When she was really feverish during February, Lara's eyes would light up when I brought out the thermometer!

The tommee tippee® thermometer is nicely shaped so that it sits easily in your hand while you take the reading. I found it tricky that there were buttons on both the front and the back that did different things (taking readings vs changing settings) but I got used to it in the end.

The thermometer can hold up to 9 readings so that you can track your baby's temperature - this is particularly useful if you are worried and need to track it before contacting your health professional.

The temperature sensor is protected by a thin hygeine sleeve - you get a small number of these included with the thermometer but will need to buy replacements as they are only for single use.

The only thing I didn't really like about the product was the LCD display which I found to be quite dark and difficult to read at times. I seem to remember making similar comments about the tommee tippee® baby monitor.

Despite this, at a recommended price of £34.99 I really think the tommee tippee® closer to nature digital ear thermometer it is worth the investment and will return dividends for most parents.

tommee tippee® products are available at, Amazon, Asda, Argos, Boots, Mothercare, Morrisons, Sainsburys, Tesco, Toys R Us, or online at
