At a glance:

This smart baby thermometer from Nurofen connects with the Fever Smart app to continuously track your child's temperature. It accurately monitors temperature and a Bluetooth range up to 40m enables you to monitor your child's temperature as they sleep for suitable peace of mind.

Why do you think this product is so different from anything else on the market?

Julie: This product is so different from anything else on the market because you can track your child’s temperature without disturbing them every few hours. You can be more
settled especially during the night knowing that your child isn’t burning up with a temperature. The temperature monitor looks good and modern. It has a great tracking app on your phone.

Evelina: At first when I received this product, I didn’t understand what it was. I have never seen anything like this. We have been using an ear thermometer and now our daughter is older it is a bit of a struggle to check her temperature even if it’s only a few seconds. This product was shockingly good.

Alice: I think this product is so different. It really is the only thing out there that can track your little one's temperature as they sleep. To be able to keep an eye on their temperature and not disturb their much-needed sleep whilst being ill is fantastic. It is an easy time to panic when your baby is running a fever. To know you have an accurate reading of their temperature at all times is great. Any change and the app alerts you.

Why does it change your life with your baby?

Monika: This product is a lifesaver if you have a small baby that is ill or a premature. It allows you to monitor your baby’s temperature continuously without disturbing them. It offers peace of mind to the caregiver by alerting them to any spikes in temperature in real time.

Evelina: It’s so easy to attach and it does not disturb your baby at all. That is the main thing because before it was a struggle to check temperature with a standard thermometer. This is a great innovation.

Alice: It changes my life with my baby as I can feel reassured and at ease that I have a product that can read my baby’s temperature correctly all night. Taking a child's temperature is hard enough, let alone when they are asleep and you do not want to disturb them. To be able to attach the discreet monitor and leave it on them is brilliant. My little boy didn't even notice me apply it so he was completely unaware. The Fever Smart temperature monitor is such a helpful product that is easy to use and discreet.

What excites you about this product?

Monika: It is a must-have for parents of small children that are ill. It gives parents the peace of mind that their child’s temperature is not dangerously high. It allows you to take the temperature without waking the baby unnecessarily which is important when they are unwell.

Alex: It is too hi-tech for me. I prefer a simpler product that does not rely on modern technology. I don’t like the idea of any device emitting information from right beside my baby.

Julie: I was really excited to start off with thinking this would make my life so much easier especially at night time. The product looked so modern but I was so wrong. I got everything ready to go so that when my child was poorly I could use it. The time came and the temperature readings were wrong. I tried my best to get the right temperature but it failed.

What one thing would you change about this product?

Evelina: I really don’t know what to suggest. I am so pleased to have it in our lives. It is so easy to use and it is very modern. It is a bit expensive but you can find it cheaper online. I hope the price drops as it has the ability to help make mums lives easier with a poorly baby.

Alice: I think this product is fantastic. There are not many things I would change as the overall experience of using this product has been great. I would make the Fever Smart refills a little more reasonable as they are only one use. You could offer more in a pack. I would also like to make the monitor slightly more flexible. This is probably very unrealistic as it might not work but its quite stiff against the skin when placing it under the curve of an armpit.

Monika: It is a shame that you have to continue to buy the replacement patches. It is all right for a one-off illness but can prove very costly to a child who has ongoing health problems and requires long-term monitoring. Other than this it is a revolutionary product. It is easy to use and well made. It is expensive but I think it is worth the money.
