This year we wanted to make a summary of good gifts for the whole #TheNowFamily. Santa Claus is already very close, with Rudolph and some of you have not decided to “ask” what they want.
One of the main problems and fears faced by parents of babies and children is that they get sick and have a fever. Fever is usually the symptom that something is wrong with your body. It appears as a defense mechanism against various situations, disorders, infections and pathologies. Most of the time it is a sign that a virus or bacteria is attacking the body. Excess clothing (especially in infants) and immunizations may also be a reason for them to have a feverish picture. That’s why it’s so important to determine if the baby or child has a fever. Then we’ll know how to act.
To do this, it is necessary to know how to measure the fever well in children. You may be familiar with the first gesture most parents make when we notice that their child is a little warmer than usual: place the palm of the hand on the child’s forehead or gently approach the lips to check if the temperature is high.
If we suspect that the baby may have a fever, what we should do is measure the body temperature with a thermometer.
When we think our kids may have a fever, it’s best to take their temperature with a digital thermometer.
There are some areas indicated for taking temperature in infants and children such as the rectum, forehead, armpit or ear.
The most accurate way to take babies’ temperature is with temporary artery thermometers, which use an infrared sensor that measures temperature by simply sliding it over the baby’s forehead and digital ear thermometers, called tympanic thermometers.
How to use a temporary artery thermometer (in the forehead)
Temporary artery thermometers are very easy to use, once you learn the technique.
It is very important to follow the instructions, as well as all the sample videos that the manufacturer himself can provide. If you still find it difficult, you can always go to your doctor-pediatrician, as they are used to using this type of thermometers.
The basic use of these thermometers is to position it at the point on the forehead between the eyebrows and the hairline.
Then you’ll have to make soft circles without squeezing. Et voilà. (Include video)
How to use an ear thermometer
Ear thermometers, as well as forehead thermometers, are usually fast, safe and comfortable. The only problem is that they add the complication of having to insert the thermometer into the small child’s ear canal, and if the procedure is not performed correctly and the thermometer is inserted well into the ear, the recording may be erroneous or inaccurate. In addition, wax accumulated in the ear also has an influence because it interferes with reading.
Ear thermometers are not recommended for infants younger than 6 months, because narrow ear canals in young infants can make it difficult to insert the sensor properly.
Thermometer connected to the smartphone. Everything registered.
Oblumi tapp is a device connected to the mobile phone that converts it into a digital infrared thermometer with multiple possibilities. We mean, it’s a digital thermometer.
Accurately measures temperature

Views the history of temperature data and medication intake, making it easy to track fever status and information for the healthcare professional.
Share patient profiles
You will be able to create as many patients as you need and share them with the users you want, the information will be automatically updated to all those who share a patient.
Send and receive notifications
You will be able to send an automatic notification of the temperature or medication to contacts with whom you share information.
Avoid worries and set off an alarm so you don’t forget to take a temperature or medication again.
Check liquid temperature
How many times have you had a scare because the bottle was too hot or the bath water was too cold? With Oblumi tapp you can measure the temperature of any liquid with the same precision and speed.
Regardless of the method you choose, do not take your child’s temperature immediately after bathing, when it is likely to be higher. Wait at least 20 minutes after bathing for a more accurate reading. The same happens if your baby has been wrapped in a blanket, crib, cart, or if the area you are in is heated. You have to acclimatize the thermometer and yourselves about 15 minutes.
So… do not get nervous and go to the doctor when needed… Keep Calm ;)
Sun protection in summer is very important not only to avoid burns but to avoid complicated situations in our skin in the future. As we all know, the future is already here. It is no longer necessary that our skin is burning so that we know that a new dose of sunscreen is necessary or even find out the degree of radiation that exists at any moment is possible without waiting for our skin to start to turn red.
At the end of 2013, 4 crazy people appeared at a Start-ups event and presented what at first seemed like a crazy idea. But just a little detail here, that madness worked and could be manufactured.
Today we talk about entrepreneurship and not just with the word of pop psychology, so fashionable these days.
They say that on Friday thirteen it is better to not do anything important, not marry neither embark in a new adventure. Well, we do not know if it is that in Oblumi we do not hear the popular wisdom or because we simply like to have a bit of masochism and danger in life, but we do not believe in this. In fact, it all started on a Friday, 13. We left our security back home and left our jobs to follow our dreams. It might be because our motto is “Those who do not risk, do not win”. (more…)
Only a few days ago we woke up with another sad news. Some may see her as another victim, but it was something else. For his position, for how she has taken and above all, for everything that has struggled to overcome it and in the end could not be … Bimba Bosé left us a few days ago. As every day hundreds of hundreds of people die for the same reason: cancer.
Cancer is one of the main causes of death in Spain, but not only.
Cancer mortality in Spain, as well as in Belgium, Denmark, France, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Portugal, Slovenia and the United Kingdom, is already higher than that of heart disease, as shown by a study on cardiovascular diseases in Europe, published in the ‘European Heart Journal’. Spain is the second country, after France, where cancer deaths have surpassed those of cardiovascular accidents. (more…)
Are you looking for the perfect gift for an athlete? You’re lucky! There are so many products out there that help us stay in shape and take care of our health and moreover all of them are so trendy right now! With nowadays technology, many are the accessories to use while practicing sports by connecting them with your latest smartphone.
For sure you know someone who lives (literally) connected to his mobile, who does not go running without his smart-quantifier bracelet, someone who just reads if it is on his new brand retina screen. One who is continually making odd gestures with his finger on his watch (no, he is not cleaning it) and he has mysterious calluses on his thumbs. Well, do not worry, these more and more common symptoms are not due to a disease transmitted by the fat lint mite that is always under the bed, nor is he Steve Jobs’ cousin.
This strange being is simply a geek of technology, what is commonly called ‘Hipster’ and for him to survive, he needs micro- Chips, wi-fi technology and preferably something that needs to charge by USB every 10 minutes at least. What a mess! Now what do you do? What gifts to give them? Do not worry! In Oblumi we think of (almost) everything and we have prepared for you the definitive Guide of technological gifts – Christmas Edition 2016 –
If you are one of those who want to be different when making a present, this is your list, please keep reading. Here you have a 5 original gifts list. We are sure that any of those presents will be a great surprise either for that friend or relative who is waiting a present from you this Christmas.
