Parenting tip of the day: Measuring fever
Oh, what a flu season it has been so far, the usual fall colds and other school-season viruses accompanied by pandemic flu H1N1.
Today's tip comes from thermometer makers Thermor Ltd., but seems like a reasonable idea.
Since body temperature varies from person to person, get a base body temperature of everyone in your family when they're feeling well. This way you'll have a more accurate read on what defines a fever for each person, and you'll be more likely to catch on when a virus is in its most contagious stage.
(As a side note, apparently thermometer sales have been up along with sales of hand sanitizer.)
