Kinetik Non-Contact Thermometer Review

If you follow me on social media you will know that Ophelia has now cut 3 teeth at 16 weeks old. Her first came through at 12 weeks. She's been very good with it but there have been days when she's has been a bit down in the dumps and under the weather. I've had to check her temperature a lot whilst they've cut through. 

We were sent a Kinetik Non Contact Thermometer to review which I jumped at the chance of receiving as it's so difficult to hold a normal thermometer under a babies arm or in their mouth. We have one that you can pop in a babies ear but even that is a bit of a struggle to do as it always disturbs Ophelia.



The thermometer uses infra-red technology to take accurate readings within one second. It also has different modes which allows you to measure room, body and surface temperature which is displayed in either celsius or fahrenheit. It also has a built in memory for 25 readings. This is very handy for seeing whether your child's temperature is going up or down. This i've found very helpful as I do suffer from baby brain quite a bit and become quite forgetful!! 

It's very simple to use. All you have to do is turn it on, take the cap off, then hold it a couple of centimetres away from your child's forehead and press scan. 

We've loved this product. It's proven invaluable whilst we've been away on holiday. We've been able to take Ophelia's temperature whilst she's sleeping, without disturbing her. We even used it on the aeroplane as they are always cold with all the air blowing around so it was great to keep an eye on her during the night time flight without waking her up. It's also been great for checking room temperatures whilst we've been here.



I like the fact that it beeps if the temperature is too high. I think this is a great feature as a lot of the time, you can't remember what a normal temperature should be especially if you are worried.

I also love that it's more hygienic than a normal thermometer. You don't have to give it a clean after every use like you would a regular one.

It's very small and fits in the palm of your hand and therefore is ideal for travel or to simply carry around in your change bag or handbag. 

Hubby has also had a fantastic time proving to me that my baths are always way too hot. I always have a boiling hot bath and he's constantly telling me that the temperature is too high and it's not good for me. He has loved sneaking in and measuring it before I jump in. Needless to say he's been able to be very smug!! 

I'd definitely recommend this to everyone. It's easy to use, fast and effective and has certainly made our lives easier whilst taking Eva and Ophelia's temperatures. You can buy the thermometer from their website here, Kinetik Wellbeing.

  2. Oh, this looks great! Trying to get a sick child to sit still while you take their temperature can be such a challenge!

  3. That looks great. We're past needing a thermometer like that now but can remember how hard it was taking a baby's temp!

  4. This sounds fab. Like you say, it's so hard to take baby and young children's temperatures. I can't believe she has three teeth already! That's incredible for only 16 weeks. My three were all early teethers, cutting their first between 16 and 20 weeks.... although not quite as early as Ophelia! x

  6. What an excellent idea, brilliant for children and babies. Can you use it with adults too, I would think it would be great for the elderly?

  9. This looks fab! Taking their temperature isn't easy, so always on the look out for new products. I love that your husband does that to your bath :-) x

  10. I REALLY want one of these contactless thermometers. The amount of times I've panicked about the kids temperature in the middle of the night and have been torn between waking them and leaving them is more than I care to count! Defo need to invest in one for baby number three x

  11. That's such a great idea. My daughter hated having her temperature taken with our ear one as a baby and while she's happy to now, a recent ear infection meant she wasn't keen on anything being nearby. This sounds she quick and simple.

  12. Toby has only ever had a temperature twice (he gets ill but without a temp) but on those times its been a nightmare trying to use the old type one so this sort would make life so much easier xx

  13. Oh my how things have come on! We have had an ear one for Monkey but I remember those teething days and I am going to be reliving them again in a few months time. This looks great and is definitely something I am going to investigate as I can see it being of real use! Thanks for sharing xx

  15. These are such a wonderful idea! It provides peace of mind without disturbing your little one xx

  16. This is a good idea for babies so you don't disturb them. I have one you just put in the ear and it turns red if they have a temperature, I find it really helpful.

  17. Its amazing isn't it that it doesn't even have to make contact. My son freaks out whenever I put anything on him so this would be perfect- popping over from Mummy2Monkeys xx

  18. Oh wow this looks amazing and so good it's contactless because getting a temp from a baby can be so difficult - my eldest would never sit still while trying to put a thermometer on his head or under his arm so this would be perfect

  20. This looks amazing! I hate having to use our under arm thermometer as its so hard to hold still. I'll be looking into this for baby number two!

  21. What a fab product. Very Star Trek. It will make it a lot easier to take the temp

  22. What a fab product. It's so hard taking children's temperature when all they want to do is be on the move.
