I never thought this would happen to me. I almost said I would never let this happen to me. I thought I was going to be stronger. But it’s true. I’ve become…a paranoid mother!
With winter on its way’s, all I can think about is my little ones health! It’s my first time having to go through this so I am a bit nervous. Luckily these days, there is so much technology out there to help guide new parents. Even experienced parents can use these modern technologies to supplement their own know-how.
The Temp Traq is one such type of modern technology that helps with child rearing. What does it do you may ask? It’s a wearable/wireless patch and app combo that is used to track your child’s temperature. The patch is a modern-day thermometer that is placed under the arm of your child and tracks your childs temperature for up to 24 hours. The temperature is recorded onto the app, where you can see the results and know exactly how your child is doing.
The app’s interface is pretty straightforward. The temperature is quickly displayed, along with the length of time the patch has been monitoring your baby, and a time graph. You can also make your own notes and check temperature history. Any of these results/notes you can send directly to your pediatrician…straight from the app! How awesome is that!?! And if you need to you can buy more patches, visit the Temp Traq website and check out how-to videos directly within the Temp Traq app.
I love that this patch is safe and easy to use. It’s wireless and I don’t have to worry about a loud alarm that might scare my baby. All of the temperature results are sent directly to my phone while my baby boy continues to rest. It doesn’t bother him one bit. But in case your child does have a fever and their body temperature reaches an unsafe level, the patch sends a notification to your device to alert you. But again, without bothering your baby.
I had a great experience with the Temp Traq, and so did Kai. He didn’t attempt to take it off, which I think meant it was pretty comfortable for him. And it didn’t fall off either. We left it on him overnight, and I checked the history in the app when I woke up in the morning.
The app records temperature every couple of minutes. It was really interesting to how his temperature changed throughout the night. Luckily for me, he isn’t sick right now. But I can already see the benefits of using the Temp Traq patch and app when he does actually have a fever.
