Baby Thermometers in Singapore
Keeping track of your baby’s temperature and overall well-being is extremely vital, especially in the earlier years. As parents, you want to be on your toes in keeping track of your baby’s temperature and regulating it with comfortable clothes, with baby sleepsuits at night, as this is the stage where a baby’s immune system is still sensitive. To facilitate that, a good baby thermometer is important to have, kept in a place that is easy to access and for quick use in case of emergencies.
Frequently Asked Questions about Baby Thermometers
How do baby thermometers differ from regular thermometers?
While most baby thermometers can be used on adults, regular thermometers that are readily available may not be as adept at checking a baby’s temperature. Baby thermometers are designed with children in mind and often have special features. These include features like a flexible tip, or coming in smaller sizes as compared to regular thermometers.
What are the different types of baby thermometers?
There are several different types of baby thermometers that parents can choose from, to cater to the nature of your children, be it younger, and cooperative. The most common types are digital thermometers. These are very versatile, as they can be used across multiple age groups and through various temperature taking methods. They are easily available, and are most recommended by doctors. Other types include electronic ear thermometers, as well as temporal artery thermometers. In recent years, contactless electronic baby thermometers have also entered the market.
What is the most accurate way to measure a baby’s temperature?
Methods for taking temperature readings of your children will differ for your baby’s age. Typically for infants aged up to 6 months old, using a digital thermometer using the rectal method is the best and most accurate way. For children aged 6 months to 4 years old, you can either continue using the rectal method. Alternatively, consider using digital thermometers via the axillary (armpit) method, or use electronic ear thermometers. However, these can be less accurate. For children aged above 4 years old, using a digital thermometer orally is best if they are cooperative. However, you may consider using other baby thermometers mentioned if they encounter difficulties due to stuffy noses and such.
