  1. What temperature should the nursery/bedroom be? Ideally it should be between 16°C and 20°C
  2. What temperature should the bathwater be? Baby’s bath water temperature should be between 36°C and 38°C. Always run the cold water first, and add hot water until the temperature is correct, mixing the water thoroughly
  3. What temperature should my fridge be? The coldest part of your fridge should be at or below 5°C. The coldest part is usually at the bottom and nearer the back. This is where you should place a fridge thermometer.
  4. What temperature should my babies food be? Ideally at around body temperature. The safety feeding spoon will change colour if it becomes too warm, above 39°C.
  5. What products are in the safety kit? Five handy temperature indicators: A room/nursery thermometer, a bath thermometer, a forehead fever indicator, a safety feeding spoon, and a fridge thermometer.
  6. Where should I place the nursery/room thermometer? Place the thermometer near the baby’s cot and out of direct sunlight, and not close to a radiator.
  7. Can I move it to another room? Yes. Again, keep it out of sunlight and away from a radiator.
  8. Can I take the thermometers on holiday? Yes
  9. How do I use the forehead fever thermometer? Hold the fever thermometer strip against the centre of the forehead just above the eyebrows and read the temperature when the coloured line stops moving. Read the indicator while it is still on the forehead.
  10. How do I read/use the thermometer? When the moving line remains stationery, and the indicator is still on the forehead, read the temperature from the position of the line on the thermometer scale.
  11. What if the scale remains black? The temperature is too low
  12. What if the scale is all red? The temperature is too high
  13. Why is this new range of liquid crystal thermometers different to any other ones? This new range uses a newly developed liquid crystal technology that builds on decades of experience in our labs. The liquid crystal strip shows a red line which moves along, showing the temperature in an easy to read way, that is more akin to the old traditional glass tube thermometers.
  14. Are they unbreakable? Within reason; liquid crystal thermometers won’t break if dropped or bent a little, use normal care.
  15. Are they non toxic? Yes. Liquid crystal thermometers don’t contain anything harmful.
  16. How long will they last? Hundreds of uses, if looked after, and kept out of direct sunlight.
  17. Can I dishwash the feeding spoon? The safety feeding spoon should be hand washed in hot water.
  18. Can my baby play with the bath thermometer? Yes, but do not leave the thermometer in the bath water
  19. Can I use it with bubble baths/emollients? Yes, but do not leave the thermometer in the bath water
