Groegg Color Changing Digital Thermometer
Not too hot, not too cold – keep your baby's room temperature just right (and safe!) with this smart thermometer
Without the ability to speak, a baby lets mom and dad know he is uncomfortable by fussing or shedding tears. Many parents' first two reactions are to feed or change their little one. But his discomfort might not have anything to do with being hungry or wet – he could be too warm or too cold.
That's where the Groegg Color Changing Digital Thermometer comes in. Studies show that a child's room should be between 61 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit to prevent Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, also known as SIDS.
In order to keep your little one safe and comfy all night long, the thermometer changes colors to display if the temperature is too hot or too cold. It glows yellow when the room is just right, but changes to red if it's too warm – or blue if it's getting chilly. Because the device glows, it doubles as a nightlight.
Now you'll feel more confident in deciding whether to add another blanket or adjust the overall temperature of the house – ultimately keeping your infant safe as he sleeps.
Keeping your baby safe is key. We'd say this is one investment you should make – or consider giving as a shower gift!
