Here’s a great gift idea for New Moms!

This product (www.TempTraq.com) is great for giving new moms peace of mind, especially during winter months when cold/flu season starts.

When kids come down with a fever, this wearable, Bluetooth patch monitors body temperature continuously for 48 hours and sends info to smartphones through a free app, letting kids get the rest they need to get better.

Parents can see real-time temperature data from anywhere (without having to wake sick children)…whether dropping a child off at grandma’s house for an overnight visit or checking in on a child staying home from school with the sitter. Plus, you can send info to your doctors and monitor multiple kids at once for those times the entire household gets sick.

I love that this is super simple to use and will give Moms some relief when their little one is sick.

It’s a must-have addition to the medicine cabinet and is currently available at Target.com.

I just love this next one! It is such a wonderful gift idea for New Moms!
