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.
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.
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.

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.
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!
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.
