I absolutely LOVE this thermometer! I have used this with all my children, it has lasted us years and works just as well now as it did when we first bought it. It takes only a few seconds to take the temperature and beeps to let you know as soon as it's done. It also always has an accurate temperature reading, I've had to take my children't temperature and then right after take them to the pediatrician for at least two occasions, and in every occasion when that has happened the temperature I had been shown at home is always the same temperature that the nurses get when I get to the pediatricians office. I also love how this thermometer has a comfortable design so it doesn't give my children any discomfort, they don't mind having their temperature taken my older two children even ask to have their temperature taken with this thermometer when they aren't feeling well, and in the off chance that they don't want their temperature taken, it goes fast enough that it's not a pain to do it.
