The Dr. Madre Infrared Thermometer (DRM-22)


With an ergonomic design and easy to use, after selecting the desired mode all you need to do is to press a button and wait one second for it to read. Very affordable price and accurate results.  You can choose the talk mode to hear the results in addiction of seeing it on the LCD screen.

Dr. Madre Infrared Thermometer really has some very useful features but it may not be the best option for your sleeping baby as it is not possible to turn it’s loud BEEP Off. It comes in a rigid plastic box great for it’s protection and a short/easy to read instructional manual. Includes 2 AAA batteries and shows battery life on the screen for always knowing when to replace them.

Choose How You Want To Get The Results

You can select to read the temperature on the LCD screen or choose a talk mode that will tell you the temperature in either English or Spanish. This can be great for grandparents looking after your children. The voice command will also tell when it’s ready to read after you turn it on. This  can be turned OFF for a more silent managing.

Dr. Madre Infrared Thermometer (DRM-22)Record Your Children Temperatures

The Dr Madre Infrared Thermometer makes fever monitoring easy. It will automatically show the last measurement on the screen when you turn it ON and you can recall up to 12 results. It has  enough memory to store the history of 2 days of fever  measured every 4 hours. Erase and start all over whenever you need.

Ambient Temperature Mode

Besides using it on Forehead Measuring Mode you can change the setting to Ambient Temperature Measuring mode. It turns out to be very useful to be able to use the same tool that will always be around your children environment to make sure their room or bathroom is at an appropriate temperature before bath or bed time.

Other points

The Dr Madre Infrared Thermometer has 2 main buttons, one to turn  power ON/OFF and one to SCAN. There is a little button on the side to easily jump between Forehead temperature measuring and Ambient measuring which means that when you have adjusted the desirable settings it is very easy to use.

Something to  have in mind is the downside of only having 2 buttons, you really need to play around a little to set/change settings, as you have to do this by pressing the SCAN button when the unit is OFF for different amounts of time in order to access and change each feature.

Pros Cons
  • Affordable
  • Talking Mode – Optional
  • Very Fast and Accurate
  • Ambient Temperature Mode
  • Easy to use
  • Auto Shutdown mode
  • Not possible to turn Beep sound OFF
  • Not so easy to change settings

In Summary the Dr. Madre Infrared Thermometer turns out to be great for adults and older children but I wouldn’t recommend it if you are thinking about using it for your little baby as you can’t mute the beep. Besides the settings being a little tricky, after you set it all up it’s fairly easy to use and a great tool for grandparents when looking after your children as all they have to do is turn it ON, press the SCAN button and hear the results. For an infrared Thermometer it is definitely very accurate and the manufacturer as thought how to prevent errors advising the user to repeat the scan when the unit shows you one of the listed messages on the screen.

Good Product Overall but not recommended for babies!
