Braun No Touch + Forehead Thermometer
Every mom needs to get the new Braun No Touch + Forehead Thermometer.
First of all, it’s non invasive and gentle enough to get the temp of your sleeping baby without disturbing them. What other thermometer can do that? With its revolutionary dual technology and ultra-sensitive sensor, you can get fast and precise temperature readings either in touch mode, by placing the thermometer on the forehead, or by holding it in front of the forehead up to 2 inches away in the no-touch mode. Do you have any idea how amazingly useful that is?!
Last week, my 9 month old, 4 year old and 7 year old all came down with a cold. Thankfully, we had just received this thermometer to review and was able to put it to the test. First of all, it is really easy to use. It’s so easy, my 7 year old could use it. It gives an accurate reading and the color changes from green (ok) to yellow (high) to red (very high!) to indicate the level of the fever. It made it easy to monitor everyone’s temp, especially my wiggly 9 month old. It was easy to take his temp when he was sleeping too with the ability to get his temp without touching him or waking him up. I think this thermometer is great!

I swear by elderberry syrup. I get it homemade locally whenever I can, but if I can’t track any down, I use Nature’s Way Sambucus for Kids Bio-certified Elderberry.
For centuries the dark berries of European black elder (Sambucus nigra L.) have been traditionally used as a winter remedy. It is also known to treat conjunctivitis, cold and flu symptoms, reduce congestion, relieve arthritis pain, sooth upset tummies, relieve gas, and more. In recent years, medical researchers have proven its efficacy in clinical trials.
There are plenty of brands of Elderberry syrup on the market but buying local and fresh is the way to go. If you can’t find any local to you and you don’t want to make it yourself, buy Nature’s Way Sambucus.
