As if on a schedule, Saskatoon got its first real snowfall late in the evening on October 31, as we were heading home from a night of trick-or-treating. And while I’m excited about Baby Cormac experiencing his first winter, I’m also worried about him experiencing his first winter colds!
In fact, he’s had a bit of a stuffy nose the last few days and I’ve been carefully watching to see if his congestion gets worse or if he develops a cough or fever. That’s why I’m so grateful to have the Philips Avent Smart Ear Thermometer in the house!
This thermometer is so easy to use, even on a small squirmy baby. Since it accurately records temperature in just two seconds, I only need a moment to see if Cormac is running a fever or doing just fine. I also like that the thermometer provides temperature in either Celsius or Fahrenheit, since I have an easier time remembering normal body temperature in Celsius.
But my favourite feature of the Philips Avent Smart Ear Thermometer is its Bluetooth capability that lets me connect it to the free Philips uGrow app on my phone! Once connected, I’m able to record and track my baby’s temperature to help me monitor his health. (Handy tip, if the thermometer isn’t connecting through the app, try opening the Bluetooth settings on your phone and searching from there.)
I also use the uGrow app for recording other milestones, including my baby’s’ height and weight, his sleep patterns and even the amount of milk I’m pumping at different times of the day. It’s a handy all-in-one app for both tracking and monitoring Cormac’s growth.
