How it works

When your baby is sick they become very fussy and difficult to soothe. This can make using a traditional thermometer very difficult.  It is so important to know what your little one’s temperature is though. So you know if they’re ok at home or need to be on their way to the hospital. The Pacifier Thermometer designed by Summer Infant is intended to make it easier to get that critical reading. A pacifier is a familiar and comforting device for a baby. This makes it genius to incorporate a thermometer into this device. Now you can comfort your little one and at the same time get a simple and accurate reading on their temperature. The Pacifier Thermometer is designed to be read in either Fahrenheit or Celsius. It has a backlight so you get a reading at night time without disturbing your baby. It even beeps when the reading is complete and has a red light to indicate fever. The nipple used is orthodontic and safe for your baby to suck on without damaging their teeth. Plus there is an included cover to make storage or travel clean and easy. This thermometer is pediatrician recommended and a really smart essential for every parent to have.
