I cannot tell you how many thermometers I have purchased. It boggles the mind, and I feel like next to the sock monster in the dryer, there must be some little sprite who likes to break and hide thermometers. What is that about? One day recently I was reading online and POOF! This magical thermometer appeared. Its called the Kinsa.
I felt like I needed to find out how well it works (you know, for research and all). And YOU GUYS ITS AMAZING.
1. It is fast
Results in 10 seconds
2. There is a waiting bubble game
Sounds odd? But it is kiddo goodness. While they are waiting for the ten seconds to end, there is a bubble popping game that appears on the screen. I played it, you know, for technical reasons.
3. Every family member has a profile
4. The profile keeps track of temperatures
Yup. You heard that right. It remembers each person's temperature reading. No more trying to remember what kid number ones temp was at 3 am. Never mind when you have more than one with a fever that you are trying to keep track of! I can't tell you how many times I have tried to record data on my phone in the middle of the night. #gamechanger
5. There's an app for that
Apple and Android. Super easy.
6. Installation is easy. Christy proof even.
They have step by step instructions, with videos on how to install it. For those, like me, who have trouble getting things to work, it is pure genius.
7. Track symptoms and medications
I don't even have to think about it. Obviously the littler one will not be able to articulate what she is feeling, but the obvious symptoms I can keep track of!
8. Using your location, it can tell you what things are going around the school.
As much as I don't look forward to cold and flu season returning, it is awesome to have a tool that will actually help me during the dreaded sick days! The best part, is it isn't very expensive. I found it on Amazon!
