The parenting gadget every caregiver needs



When you have a sick kid, it’s a terrible feeling. I remind my girls that they are more my babies than ever when they are sick. Thankfully, it’s not very often, but when they go down, they go all out! (Pneumonia in August? Who does that?!)

With four of them, my memory is shot. I have no idea what their temperature was or when I last took it. And, you know that’s the first thing the doctor wants to know.

“When did the fever start?” Um, Friday? Saturday? “What was it when you last checked it?” Hold on, let me think!

Not anymore. Kinsa has saved me with their traditional stick thermometer and app. I can take and store my girls’ temperatures, symptoms and notes (like medicines given) all within the app. 

Kinsa has a BRAND NEW Smart Ear Thermometer!! It’s so new that I haven’t even had the chance to try it and I know it will be awesome. Back in May, I was able to meet the fine people from Kinsa and I was so impressed. They really thought of everything to make my life easier because it stores all of the data for each child in their own profile. Two sick kids with different medication administration times is now solved!

Plus, it brought me back to my lab days in graduate school using a device to measure temperature (among other things). I’ve tested out the app with the traditional stick thermometer and I can’t wait to get my hands on this ear thermometer!

The Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer brings parents instant peace of mind when they need it most – when caring for a sick child. Working in just 1 second, Kinsa lets parents know whether their child is ill, and helps them take action if fever and symptoms are cause for concern. Working wirelessly with both Android and iOS devices, Kinsa automatically remembers important details like fever history, symptoms and medications to share with their doctor.

While the Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer stands alone with a 1-button switch and easy to read display, it puts much more in your hand when you use it with the Kinsa app. The app is free to download and works with the thermometer wirelessly via Bluetooth 

Funds raised through the pre-sales campaign will go towards supporting Kinsa’s philanthropy program FLUency which gives free Kinsa stick thermometers to all families in a number of schools throughout the country. They are hoping to expand the program to 100 schools this fall.

Why do you need the Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer APP in your life?

-It remembers everything for you. It allows you to “remember” fevers, medications, symptoms and notes. It is then at your finger tips for your doctor, another caregiver, or yourself.

-Not sure what do next? Go the the doctor? Head to the ER? Watch and wait? The app features in-app knowledge from medical experts, including the Mayo Clinic.

-It’s separate: Separate profiles for separate kids. Separate accounts for parents or caregivers to see a child’s history and symptoms on their own devices.

-Nearby: You no longer have to ask on Facebook if a certain illness is going around (we hope it isn’t!). You can see common illness circulating using the Kinsa Groups feature. 

Convinced? Head over and buy the Kinsa Smart Ear Thermometer and get yourself a deal!
