The ear thermometer is short enough, and provides readings quickly enough, to keep kids comfortable. My son slept through most of his readings.

Kinsa sends the readings to your app, so you can compare results with previous patterns. You can also record various symptoms that accompany particular temperatures.

Kinsa gets a reading in about a second, so even with squirmy kids, it's pretty easy to get a temperature quickly.

If the app isn't on while taking the temperature, Kinsa saves time-stamped readings and sends them when the app is turned on. Then you can assign them to different children, or delete them.
