#10 Chic Mummy!
Please email me your contact details (for email link, try the ‘Contact’ link above in the header) and I will arrange for your prize to be posted out.
The view from our couch last week! Yes that is a toddler sitting on a towel with a vomit bowl! *SIGH* Fortunately though, no temperature. See for yourself, right there on the large, easy to read bright green screen!
Thanks to the generosity of Vicks, we have a brand new digital toy to play with. No not a new laptop *sigh again* but a new thermometer. And this one rips shreds off our old one. We used to use a ‘stick-it-in-the-ear’ variety but incredibly, despite the $60+ price tag, it was not backlit.
*Cues background music* It is pitch black, the dead of night, and your baby/toddler is fussy and won’t settle. You stand in the dark, trying to juggle not only a thermometer to take their temperature but also a mobile phone – for the light – as the ridiculous thermometer does not light up. Very unhelpful when you are trying to minimize disturbing your baby/toddler any more than is absolutely necessary.
That scene was played out at our house many, many times during the past two years, in fact Immy only ever seems to get sick during the night!
Anyhow, back to the Vicks Forehead Thermometer. As well as being backlit, you just sweep the thermometer across the patient’s forehead for a mere three seconds to take a temperature reading. A quick swipe, it beeps to let you know it is ready and then it lights up AND changes colour, just like a traffic light! Depending upon the temperature reading, the screen turns green, yellow or red. No late night, sleep deprived brain wondering if 38.2° is fever or not!
Now if Vicks could just work out a way to take care of the fevered child for you!
Readers of Childhood 101 have the opportunity to win this great nursery pack featuring a Vicks Forehead Thermometer and Grobag Room Temperature Egg, the total prize is valued at $140.
