Stick-on temperature indicators are a recent addition to the toolkit of a childcare centre, and provide a number of benefits that can make your job easier as a caregiver. They can also make the whole process easier on the child. We've picked out the top five reasons why you should consider stick-on temperature indicators.
1. Easier to Monitor
When you take a child's temperature the traditional way, you have to wake them up. They either have to hold the thermometer under their tongue or arm. This can cause sleep disruptions, and they need rest if they don't feel well.
On the other hand, you have stick-on temperature monitors. Once you the monitor is on, simply glance at it. You don't have to worry about waking the kids up to take their temperature. They can sleep through their nap time and start to feel better. All you have to do is get close enough to read the temperature without disturbing them.
A single FeverMates temperature sticker lasts up to 48 hours. Parents can apply it and leave it on without a problem. It'll give you accurate temperature readings from start to finish. This is really convenient if you notice a child is sleeping a lot because they don't feel good. You can get the monitor wet without worrying about it peeling off. This is useful if you to use a cool pad to help make the child feel more comfortable. You can get the area around the FeverMate wet with no harm done to the monitor itself, and then gently pat the area dry.
Many children have sensitivities and can break out. FeverMates helps to protect even the most sensitive skin because the glue is hypo-allergenic. This means that it comes designed to be gentle on the skin. They won't cause irritation when they stick on. You get surgical-grade adhesive on FeverMates temperature stickers. This ensures it lasts for the full 48 hours while not causing any issues for the child while they wear it.
4. Fun Designs
A thermometer can be scary for a small child. They don't know what it is, and this can cause stress and worry for them when you try to take their temperature. FeverMates feature cute designs. You'll get fun animal prints that are bright and happy, so the kids won't be able to wait to wear them. This also makes sure that the child won't mind wearing them for up to 48 hours. They'll be proud to show their FeverMate off to all the other kids.
5. Safe for Kids of All Ages
FeverMates are safe for kids in all age groups. Unlike normal thermometers that require several types for different ages, you can use FeverMates on babies and young children. It's a hassle-free way to monitor a child's temperatures. No matter if you are working with newborns or toddlers, FeverMates are great for all of them. Since they're so easy to apply, there's zero stress for babies. Also, you won't have to worry about getting older kids to sit still for longer periods of time.
