Braun ThermoScan 5


I was selected by Influenster to receive and review the Braun ThermoScan 5.  First, to say I was excited is an understatement!  I’ve wanted an ear thermometer since Aiden was born but, for whatever reason, never went out and bought one.  When this beauty showed up in the mail I might have shrieked with excitement!


The crazy thing is the Braun ThermoScan 5 showed up right in the middle of Tate’s ear infection.  He would flinch every time I touched his ear, even just his earlobe, so I thought there was no way he’d let me stick this thermometer in his ear. 

I pulled the Braun ThermoScan 5 out of the box and got a little giddy over the doctor’s office style protectors I got to stick on the end each time (I used to secretly wish I could be a nurse just so I could put those on and then push the button to pop them off after use, ha!).  I read the directions, which were beyond super easy, then got started.

All you have to do is put on the protector, push the ‘on’ button, wait for it to beep at you that it’s ready (about a second or two), then gently stick it in your child’s ear.  Again, you wait only a matter of a couple seconds for it to beep at you again and there is your child’s accurate temperature!  Then the fun part, you get to push the button for that plastic protector to pop off into the trash, ha ha!

Not only was the Braun ThermoScan 5 easy to use, it was super fast and gentle!  Tate didn’t even flinch, he sat super still and didn’t even know I’d taken his temperature.  I was shocked since, again, his ears were super sore and he didn’t like me touching them!  I LOVE this thermometer!  Anyone with kids should have one – they’d make a great baby shower gift!

I was given the Braun ThermoScan 5 for free in exchange for my honest review.  These opinions are solely my own and are my true feelings. #BraunThermos Thank you.

  1. I would totally get giddy over the protectors as well. Do you the price point on those?
