Unfortunately, this thermometer can not be used with a clear conscience. It is inaccurate and this is a reason for many mothers to refrain from buying. The choice of a thermometer should focus on one's own child and his / her well-being. Most mothers like it comfortably and think a few degrees difference are not wild, but exactly this assumption is wrong and should not be underestimated. A digital thermometer is always the best choice for the mother.
