When I’m packing for vacation, especially an international vacation, I pack just about everything in the medicine cabinet. With kids, you never know what you’re going to need and you don’t know what will be available when you travel. A thermometer is a must-have, but is also a trickier product to take along. They are fragile and if you have an electronic thermometer, they can run out of batteries. The
Kinsa Smart Thermometer
The Kinsa thermometer is an absolute must-have. And for only $24.99, you can’t pass it up. The app and thermometer are helpful parenting tools and are really great for the entire family. You can even slip a rectal thermometer cover over it and use it on infants.
My family also loves the bubble popping game that helps pass the time it takes to read a temperature. It eliminates the unnecessary battle with the kids during the 10 seconds it takes to take their temperature.
