“It’s just a sore throat”, I always say. When my son gets sick, why does it always, always start with “just” a sore throat? Two days later, and my little guy is down for the count with a full blown cold or flu. Having a sick child is no picnic, and I’ve always wished there were better tools out there to make a mama’s job easier. For me, one of the most stressful parts of when my son is sick is worrying about him once he finally drifts off to sleep. What if his fever gets worse? How can I check in on him while letting him get the rest he needs?

I’m so glad I found out about TempTraq®. This wearable Bluetooth® temperature monitor is made into a comfortable patch that continuously monitors body temperature of your child for up to 24 hours. Did you catch that? No more poking and prodding with a thermometer trying to get an accurate reading. It continuously senses, records and transmits temperature data for up to either an Apple® or Android™ compatible mobile device. All you have to do is download the free TempTraq® app.


I think the genius of this product is that it’s completely comfortable for your child. Just place the patch on your child’s underarm area. (The app even gives you a quick-start visual guide on applying the patch.) One and done. No need to take your little one’s temperature every few hours, since this patch will stay on and keep you updated for 24 straight hours. It’s safe, and is also a FDA cleared medical device.


Another feature I really love is the integration with the TempTraq® app on my phone. It’s easy to understand with bright colors and temperature readings. You can also easily track what your child eats and drinks for a complete picture of how they’re coping and healing during the sickness.

Now, I know if you have one sick child in your house, chances are they’ll soon spread it to the rest of the family, too. Guess what? The TempTraq® app seamlessly allows you to monitor more than one child at a time. Just place a patch on each of your sick kiddos and monitor fevers simultaneously. Here’s a screenshot from my iPhone. So easy, right?


With cold and flu season just around the corner, I know I’ll probably be whipping out TempTraq® soon. Caring for your family when they’re sick can be exhausting, but thankfully, tools like this let you focus on the important stuff, like lots of books and snuggles when your little ones don’t feel well!
