A Life-Saving Sticker

The Thermospot sticker - one of the six components in the Neonatal Survival Kit we fund helps the mother monitor her child’s core temperature. This little plastic sticker when placed on the baby’s armpit, chest or neck changes color to indicate if the baby is too hot (and has an infection) or cold (hypothermic), giving instant information on when urgent medical care is needed. This is crucial information in developing, rural areas where most people have never seen a thermometer or know how to read one. This tiny little sticker can make a huge difference in the detection of, and response time to infection, potentially saving a baby's life.
