I think the smart temp thermometer wold be so convenient to have when the little one is sick. Most babies don’t like getting their temperature taking then adding to it when their sick never helps the issue. My little guy dislikes getting his temperature taking so much it’s an awful experience. I think a high tech gadget like this would really help change that or atleast make the process easyier.
