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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    Bought this the day after getting our newborn home and after reading literature about getting his bath water just right. Wanted a quick solution which would save us time waiting for the water to cool and/or guessing whether the water was at a suitable temperature for him to have a dip - this waterproof device is brilliant.
    Provides great piece of mind and speeds up the whole process of preparing a bath for baby. Little note (which I almost missed in the documentation sent with the thermometer) place the thermometer in the baby bath straight away as you are filling it up - as it gives a more accurate and balanced reading - rather than throwing it once the bath is full as you wait a little longer to get a stable reading.

    I'd be lying if I did not say this is one of the best baby buys I have ever made... it gives me peace of mind as I can't tell if the water is hot or cold half the time, especially in the Winter. A little concerned if it is giving inaccurate readings though.... as I tend to bath my toddler at about 39-40 degrees. I am now using this on my second baby. I panic if I misplace it! Having had it for nearly 2 years I have found that mould has grown around the display, at least I am sure it is mould, it won't come off. It is never left in water. It does take a while to adjust the temperature reading and you do need to swill the water around with it to get an accurate reading, you will find it will either go up or down considerably. The thing has to be allowed time to adjust and it is not the thermometers fault if the hot water gathers at one end! The frustrating thing is the fact that it flips upside down ALL the time, it is so annoying, I go to put my baby in, arms full and liking to double check the temperature it has turned upside down and it takes while to read the correct temperature after turning the right way! It certainly prefers to be upside down. I have not used other bath thermometers, I figured an expensive one would be safer, there may be better ones out there, but I have relied on this so heavily and would not be without it.
