Reading the Temperature on a Fever Sticker
This is Life’s Lisa Ling shared her experience with these stick-on thermometers on Facebook and it makes us want them even more.
“Put them on your kid’s head when they’re sleeping and the sticker will indicate whether she is feverish or not, you can’t see the little black dots in this pic, but they read 37 (about 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit) and N for normal.”
