WIN: The Braun Thermoscan 7 Thermometer Takes the Guesswork Out of Children’s Fevers!

Being a Mum can seem like the goal posts are always changing. Just when you think ‘I got this’ you realise different age, different stage, different information.

It’s enough to make your head spin.

Add a child with a fever. Screaming their little head off. Maybe an in-the-bed vomit.  At 3am. And no wonder we just want someone, or something, to just step in and tell us the answers. Thank goodness for the Braun ThermoScan® 7 Ear Thermometer. It takes the guesswork out of whether your child has a concerning fever or not.

Peace of mind from a thermometer? Yep. This is some amazing technology.

Do you know the definition of a “fever” changes with age? Clinical research shows that the definition of fever changes as a child grows. What is fever in a newborn can be a normal temperature in a 4-year-old. It’s enough to make you lose confidence in your own mummy-medical-knowledge. And there’s nothing worse than self-doubt when you’re responsible for a sick child. Thank goodness for the ThermoScan® 7 Ear Thermometer – it knows the answer, so you don’t need to.

Enter the team from Braun. 

Based on this new age versus fever information, the team at Braun have solved a worrisome problem for Mums. How? They’ve developed the ThermoScan® 7 Ear Thermometer with AgeSmart™ technology. This allows you to select the age category of your child to help ensure the fever definition is as accurate as possible.

The result? At the simple touch of a button, Braun gives you a colour-coded reading that’s tailored to your child’s life stage.


So, what does all this mean? What are the benefits?

Well, you know that moment when the thermometer indicates your child has a fever but you’re not quite sure what to do? Do you need to rush to the hospital? Just give them paracetamol? Put them in a cool bath? Call the home doctor?

It’s such a big responsibility and as a mum it can be super-stressful, especially making these decisions under pressure.

The ThermoScan® 7 Ear Thermometer charts your child’s temperature (comparative to their age) in a red, yellow or green band which provides a calm and informed starting point for how you’ll handle your child’s condition, right now.

If you’ve ever half-asleep googled ‘Is 38.9 a fever in a child?’ you’ll know the enormous value of this technology – and the massive peace of mind it’ll bring to your life. (Buy one now, your future self will thank you at 3am!)

I know I would have begged (or killed!) for this product when my own babe’s were small. So many nights I lay awake and worried that I had made the right decision. To call the doctor. To go to the hospital. Panicked about convulsions. This product is truly a mum’s blessing, if only it’d be around 8 years ago! This will be my go-to baby shower or new baby gift for first time mums! If you’ve got small kids, I know you want one: here’s how to win!
