Product Description

Product Description

Philips AVENT
The Philips AVENT Digital Bath and Bedroom Thermometer is the attractive, fun, and safe way to make sure your baby is comfortable.

Monitor baby's environment with the Bath and Room Thermometer

Caring for your baby's health and safety is one of the most important things you do as a parent. Nothing can prepare you for the intense bond you will have with your little one when he arrives, and the overwhelming desire you will feel to care for and protect him.

Accurate Temperature

In today's world, maintaining the health and well-being of your baby is more important than ever. Philips AVENT understands your concerns and can support you in monitoring your baby's health and the environment around him/her.

If you are looking for a gentle, fast and accurate way to monitor your baby's temperature, and the climate around him, the Philips AVENT Bath and Room Thermometer might be the solution for you.

Why measure the temperature of baby's room?
A newborn baby cannot yet regulate its own body temperature. If baby's room is too cold, baby's body temperature can drop dangerously.

Why measure the temperature of baby's bath?
A baby's skin is delicate, making it very sensitive to external influences like temperature and moisture. Because the baby's skin is so sensitive, it reacts more quickly to water that is too hot. Baby's skin burns much faster than the skin of an older child or an adult. A newborn baby is not yet able to regulate its own body temperature. This means that when it is exposed to a cold environment (e.g. cold bath water), baby's body cools down quickly. Measuring baby's bath water is important for baby's safety and comfort; with the Digital Bath and Room Thermometer parents can easily check if the water temperature is correct, to ensure a pleasant and relaxing experience for their baby. The thermometer can also be used for testing the water temperature of baths for older children.

Why is a digital thermometer better than an analogue one?

Digital measurement is a highly reliable measurement technology, which eliminates measurement errors. A digital thermometer is easier to read, more exact and more reliable than an analogue thermometer.

Climate Monitor

It takes several months for your baby's body to learn to properly control its own temperature. As your baby's body starts to develop, keeping a close eye on the environmental temperature will help you know if he is uncomfortable. Philips AVENT offers a digital thermometer that can give you a precise reading of the temperature in your baby's room. In addition, you can also measure the temperature of baby's bath water, as this fun thermometer is also designed to float in water, and is perfectly safe and makes bath time fun.

Floats in Water

The Philips AVENT Digital Bath and Room Thermometer is a convenient way to monitor the temperature both in baby's room and in the bath. It has also been designed and tested as a safe, fun bath toy.

Fast and Reliable Measurement

This AVENT thermometer provides accurate temperature readings for bath or bedroom.

Complies with All Relevant Toy and Safety Standards

The products that comply with the toy standard have been thoroughly tested to ensure they meet these norms and are totally safe.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Purchase 19 Feb 2007
    By Alan
    Colour Name:Blue
    This bath thermometer really works well.

    Our baby either loves or hates his bath, purely depending on whether the water temperature is right or not.

    Unlike many other thermometers, this one digitally displays the temperature, rather than by means of a colour strip. The thermometer refreshes quickly, (about 1 sec) so is good for checking water temperature when mixing. The rubber casing means it is virtually unbreakable and can be left floating in the water whilst bathing.

    The design allows the thermometer to sit upright on a shelf or table which means that it can also double as a room thermometer when not being used for bathing.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect baby thermometer 31 Oct 2008
    By Smithy
    Colour Name:Blue|Verified Purchase
    We have three thermometers at home for our little boy, a Grobag egg, one built into the baby monitor and this Philips one. But it is this Philips one I like the best.

    The Philips thermometer consists of a good, no-nonsense easily read LCD display showing the temperature. The display is covered with a little plastic circle - which looks like it could scratch - but ours hasn't despite some real rough handling. This is mounted into a good tough rubber flower -- not too soft and not too hard. We're happy to let our little boy chew away on it now that he's teeting. In fact he quite likes playing with it. It gets dropped and thrown but is still going strong and has not discoloured or anything.

    It seems fully waterproof to test the bath temperature (and is handily marked 37C to remind you want the temperature should be). It is also free-standing for use as a room thermometer. We also threw it in our bags for holiday without worry and used it to check the pool temperature.

    It seems pretty acurate, I trust it, and it changes its reading quickly.

    On of the benefits of this one is that it is battery powered, so no having to move leads around like the Grobag one. It goes from room to room with us when necessary. Not sure how long the battery lasts, but some friends have had theirs for four years without having to replace it.

    We've now had ours for a year, and all in all, I'd highly recommend it.

    6 May 2014 UPDATE: Just a quick addition to say we've now had this thermometer for six years in constant use and it is still going strong with the original battery.

    4.0 out of 5 stars Very useful gadget 22 Aug 2011
    Colour Name:Blue
    The first time I gave my baby son a bath I attempted to use the traditional "elbow" technique to gauge the bath temperature. For those not in the know, supposedly you just stick your elbow in the water and when it feels "just right", it's OK for your baby.

    Well maybe I've just got sensitive elbows, or don't really understand what on earth "just right" is supposed to mean, as first bath time went something like this:

    1. Fill bath to what I think is correct temperature, stick in elbow. Ouch too hot!
    2. Pour in some cold water. Stick in elbow. Ouch too hot!
    3. Pour in some more cold water. Stick in elbow. Still too hot!
    4. Pour in yet more cold water. Stick in elbow. Hmm, OK maybe.
    5. Pour in a little more cold water to be on safe side. Lower baby into bath.
    6. Baby screams head off and starts shivering. Conclusion, bath way too *cold*.

    So, this being the 21st century, I figured there must be a better way to do this, and after browsing Amazon, I discover this nifty little thermometer. So I added it to my basket, selected first class delivery, and the thermometer arrived just in time for my son's second bath time.

    This occasion bath time went like this:

    1. Fill bath to what I think is the correct temperature.
    2. Examine thermometer, slightly too cold! Pour in some hot water.
    3. Examine thermometer, 37 degrees exactly. Lower baby into bath.
    4. Baby visibly relaxes, splashes around, and generally seems to be happy.

    Fast forward 10 months, the thermometer is still going strong, and bath time is one of my baby's favourite times of the day! Well worth having. Only four stars as the display can be a little slow to update to temperature changes, but still well worth the money, and an excellent purchase!

    5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant 13 Dec 2008
    Colour Name:Blue
    This was recommended by our hospital midwives and nurses. It's brilliant. It quickly, accurately and clearly tells the temperature in the room and in the water. It also doubles up as a toy in the bath and makes bath time SO much easier.

    1.0 out of 5 stars inaccurate 12 Dec 2011
    By abc123
    Colour Name:Blue
    very slow to react to change in temperature

    inaccurate - reads about 2 degrees cooler than the calibrated mercury thermometer borrowed from the University Physics dept.

    Good design, but needs to be placed in bath rather than chucked as it can roll over. Temp reading can take a few seconds and can jump through a couple of readings, so always swish water and double check bath yourself to make sure reading is not too low and to eliminate hot spots.

    2.0 out of 5 stars Not very good really. 13 Feb 2010
    Colour Name:Blue
    Two problems really, the temp gauge is very slow to react to changes in temperature and when it is in the bath it is a bit top heavy so it tends to float upside down with the sensor sticking out of the water.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Good until the screen mists over! 2 Jan 2008
    Colour Name:Blue
    Would agree with previous comments that takes a while to get a reading and does flop over. But having bought two of these now I do like them.....but both have misted over so can no longer read the display!
