Rated 1 out of 5 by from Mothercare digital ear thermometer useless We bought this thermometer for our baby daughter and it has never worked. Temperatures for adults without a fever typically range from 32 to 34 degrees C but sometimes vary as much as 3 degrees between readings. We have never been able to trust a reading it gives and there appears to be no way of calibrating or adjusting it. Useless. Waste of money and time playing with it. Do not buy.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Total rubbish! Total waste of money!! Always saying the wrong reading, tested it in myself and it said I had a temp of 39! Very upsetting that this doesn’t work when you need it most. After ordering another thermometer off amazon I have now spent a lot of money on thermometers - not good when living on maternity pay!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Horrible! Absolutely shocking piece of equipment! This was bought for us a present for our daughter when she was born and we have never had a correct temperature! It always says she has a fever when she doesn’t. Tried it on ourselves and it says the same. Avoid this at all costs, especially since Mothercare don’t seem to want to compensate those who already spent money on this item!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Useless thermometer - zero stars Every time I use this, within moments of each other, the temperature varies but up to 2.5 degrees which is very significant and worrying especially when it reads 40 degrees. When you are distressed about your unwell baby, an inaccurate piece of equipment does not help. Shocking! Total waste of money as will have to buy another one.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from So inaccurate! Thankfully I bought this when it was half price, but still a waste of money. I tried it on our baby when just a few weeks old and said he had a temperature. Tried it on myself and said I was even hotter, so I did a second reading and came out 1.5 degrees different! Tried it again on a different occasion and again multiple readings gave very different results. Such poor quality, waste of money, very disappointed. Very surprised this passed any kind of quality tests.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not accurate - :( I cannot believe and shocked in 2017 you are allowed to sell an essential piece of medical kit that is significantly inaccurate! Especially for babies !! Surely there must be strict regulation around this?? There is probably more regulation and accurate temperature reading for hair straighteners!! Mothercare can I return this shocking rubbish product and exchange for something that works!? And No I no longer have the receipt.

You used to sell replacement probe covers for this. Why have you stopped selling the covers but still sell the thermometer? You need the covers to use the thermometer. Without spares it becomes useless when the supplied ones run out...

Asked by: Bemused and confused
Hello, Thank you for your query. Sorry, we're out of stock of the Mothercare Digital Ear Thermometer Probe Cover 20 Pack at the moment. We would advise to contact your local store to see if they have any stock available. Apologies that I could not be of more assistance at this time.

how to change farengete to celcium?

Asked by: Orik
Hi - this is the link to the 2 in 1 thermometer instructions: - when you click on the link, it should open the file immediately for you. Here are the instructions - we spoke to our technician and then tried it ourselves to make sure! Switch the unit on and press the M button until the screen displays a single digit (1,2,3 etc – image number 27 in the instructions) When you see the screen has one digit, please press the on / off button once and it will switch between the two types of readings.
