Braun Thermoscan Digital Thermometer £24.99 @ Amazon
A digital thermometer, like this Braun Thermoscan, isn't an optional piece of parenthood kit, as far as I'm concerned, it's necessary and non-negotiable - you can't have children or babies in the house and NOT have something to measure their temperatures with.
It was one of the very first pieces of baby equipment I purchased way back when, and if I had to work out how much it cost me to buy versus how many times its been used then it would work out to be an absolute bargain - if you get my drift.
The Braun Thermoscan digital thermometer is the digital thermometer of GP choice, it's also the one used on the majority of hospitals too so, before my first son was born 17 years ago, this is the digital thermometer that I bought.
This Braun Thermoscan digital thermometer is quick and easy to use and is pretty much as accurate as you're going to get but they're not usually cheap; the usual retail price is around the £40 mark - Amazon's previous price was £39.99 but, at the moment, they're selling them for £24.99 instead.
All the usual Amazon delivery malarkey applies - if you don't want your Braun Thermoscan Electronic Thermometer super quick then choose the SuperSaver delivery option and pay nothing for postage BUT, if you want it to be with you in time for Christmas using SuperSaver delivery then you need to order it by the close of play tomorrow (Sunday 18).
