Having a reliable way to take your child's temperature when they are sick is a must have. One thing that always seems to be missing is the thermometer when you need it. Maybe it is because most thermometers are small and can be misplaced in the wee hours of the night when you are trying to care for a child, or maybe they are like socks you put them in the washer together but by the time they come out you only have one. Either way I like the bigger thermometers with quick temp like this one by SantaMedical Non-Contact Infrared Thermometer.
I love that this came with the batteries. It will take 2 AAA batteries when those die out. Easy to use, comes with a nice case to keep it clean between uses, and big enough that it won't be lost as easily. This is the thermometer for me, no more turning on the light to take your child's temperature and trying to read the tiny numbers. This has a backlight and big bold numbers.
