Whether it’s your friend’s baby’s first Christmas or a family member has a little one on the way, Christmas is an exciting time for new mums and dads, or those who are expecting a visit from the stork. While family and friends are eager to join in with the excitement, why not resist the temptation of the usual baby grows and cuddly toys and give a gift with a difference from Braun.
Not often thought about until you need one, a thermometer is an essential part of any family medicine kit. A reliable and accurate thermometer can help mums and dads to get an accurate temperature reading and help to influence how they go about treating their child. Why not place a Braun thermometer under the Christmas tree this year and give them something that will give peace of mind for years to come.
Which Braun thermometer should I buy?
With so many different types to choose from, picking the right thermometer to give as a gift this Christmas can be a tricky decision. But help is at hand as we take you through the features two of our thermometers have.
Our cutting edge ThermoScan® 7 ear thermometer with Age Precision® allows new and existing parents to set the age of their little ones (0-3 months, 3 -36 months and 36 moths to adult) for an accurate temperature interpretation as the definition of fever changes depending on age. The colour coded display which shows green for normal, yellow for elevated and red for high temperature, means anyone who’s using it can easily interpret the results.
With a patented pre-warmed tip, it improves the accuracy of the temperature reading by not cooling inside the ear, whilst also improving comfort and avoiding any of those nasty tantrums. It also features an ExacTemp® guidance system, that lets you know when the thermometer is correctly positioned in their ear.

If comfort is your main concern when choosing which thermometer to gift new and expecting parents, we’ve also launched a No touch + forehead thermometer. Featuring an innovative optical system, it captures twice as much radiated heat than other traditional forehead thermometers without an optical system (1).
What makes this one extra special is that it has two modes, so it can be used in no touch mode from up to 5cm away from the forehead, perfect for when a poorly child is sleeping. When using at night, it has a backlight so you can easily see the reading, while the audible beeps can be turned off. It also has a touch mode so you can place it on the forehead for self –measurement.
