One of the most common things to hit a child is a temperature and with Freddie teething he gets them often. As a mum of two boys aged 4 and 1, you would think I would know all the tricks when it came to taking temperatures when illness struck!
Sadly with one child who hates anything near his ears (James)! And a wriggling toddler who won't let us near him to use an in ear thermometer or a non contact thermometer it's tricky getting an accurate reading!
Step in Pacif-i to help parents, grandparents, childminders, basically any childcare provider!
Pacif-i is a Bluetooth thermometer built into a soother! It attaches to your phone and/or tablet via Bluetooth and an app records the child's temperature!
When the lovely people at Blue Maestro offed us a Pacif-i to review we were thrilled. Trying to use either an in ear thermometer or a none contact thermometer on a wriggling 18 month old is a nightmare!
When Freddie was first offered the Pacif-i he kept taking it out and looking at it, then putting it back in. Just the same as he does with his normal MAM dummy.
Freddie is recovering from his third ear infection in the last three months so having this option for taking his temperature was an utter godsend as he's taken a big dislike to our non contact thermometer and since it was an ear infection he hated anything near his ears. He's also been teething badly so has been having high temperatures
So being able to give him this and it be soother and thermometer in one we have been able to keep him happy and check his temperature without him getting distressed has been brilliant! Now if only I could use it on the four year old as well!
