A few times a day I hear from companies asking me to review products on my blog. Before I will even accept an item to review, I complete extensive research on that product. Some products immediately receive a thanks, but no thanks. They either are not a fit for this site, not a fit for my family, or just….well, some products are strange! If I don’t believe from the product description alone that readers will benefit from knowing about the product, then there is no reason for me to move forward.
If the product is in some way medical, I take it one step further. In the last couple of months I was asked more than once to review a product that related to a common infection in small children. I checked with two family practice doctors regarding the science behind the product and was told that not only did the product rely on faulty reasoning, but it was also not somehting they would recommend using on a child regardless due to the method of use. Sometimes, however, these products are exciting, and I look forward to sharing them with you because as parents we all know how frightening it can be to care for a hurt or sick child. The perfect example of one such review is the Kidz-Med Thermofocus 5-in-1 Thermometer. To this day that is one of the products that I am most proud of sharing with my readers.
