Temple Touch Thermometer


Unfortunately flu season is just around the corner and the inevitably sickies aren't far behind. As a parent, the best thing we can do is try to stay healthy, but be prepared and brace ourselves for anything and everything those nasty germs can throw our way.

Fortunately for us parents, technology has come a long way in the past few years and getting a clinically accurate temperature (in the middle of the night) is not as hard as it used to be.

The Temple Touch Thermometer by ReliOn is different from other thermometers because it's completely non-invasive. Suddenly obtaining that temperature on a fussy, sick baby is easy.

I've had the Temple Touch for awhile now and fortunately have only had to use it twice. I love it because it was easy to get that temp on my 2 year old even as she slept. I Simply held it up to her temple, waited 6 seconds, and that was it - I had my reading.

Costing only $9.94, the Temple Touch is a product you just don't want to be without this coming Flu Season.

BUY IT NOW! Temple Touch can be purchased at Wal-Mart, Sams Club and online.

WIN YOUR OWN! We have one Temple Touch Thermometer to give away to a lucky Simple reader. Simply leave us a comment letting us know one tip/trick you have for keeping your family healthy during the cold winter months.

  1. One thing I do is have my son wash his hands as soon as he gets home from school. He rarely gets sick, but I think he is a carrier that brings things home to the rest of us

  4. Oh, this would be so helpful!

    We practice standard precautions: washing hands, not sharing drinks/foods, using hand sanitizer. We also eat well and try to exercise, spending time outside even when it's cold out!

  5. Lots of handwashing and hand sanitizer, and trying not to touch door knobs, handrails, etc in public!

  6. ALWAYS wash hands upon entering the household. This keeps the germs from spreading in the house on objects used by everyone. If I find out someone who has recently visited just came down with something, I take a Clorox wipe to door knobs, remotes and other items that could have been touched. I am a germ-a-phobe!

  58. We use lysol disinfectant alot, hand sanitizers and cover our mouths when we sneeze or cough so as not to spread more germs to everyone else in the household. Of course hand washing goes without saying. We do not visit others when we are sick and hope they too have enough common sense not to come to our home when they are sick.

  78. I make sure my family drinks lots of water and juice, I make sure they have juice and food with Vitamin c, we also wash our hands and use sanitizer, when in public when at all possible I have taught them how to use their elbows or feet to open doors etc, also plenty of rest, don't get over exercised or over worked as that weakens the bodys chance at fighting off germs.

  89. To ward off any type of illness, I ensure that my children get immunized each fall with the current influenza vaccine!
    I also make sure that I remind my children to wash their hands frequently to avoid getting sick. They should wash up before eating and after using the restroom, sharing toys, coughing and blowing their nose.
    I ensure that they get enough sleep and rest for a stronger immune system, which in turn helps their bodies fight off infection.
