Brother Max’s baby products are completely safe, even for newborns: they are non-toxic, have been highly tested and are safe for your baby and you to use. Each product has been assessed thoroughly to ensure safety is maintained and all are BPA and mercury free.
Bisphenol A (BPA) is one of the 50 most-produced chemicals in the world. It is used in the manufacture of numerous household articles, from plastic water jugs to take-out containers.
Wash the soother in warm soapy water and rinse in clean water or in the dishwasher, top shelf only. Please don’t use solvents or harsh chemicals come in contact with the pacifiers. Do not sterilise for too long or you may weaken the teat. Please ensure it is completely dry prior to storing your product. Please also ensure to keep them cleaned after each use.
The back of the Ray/Whale was originally designed for a coin to slot in and open to remove the battery, although was reworked during a batch production. The design of Ray has now reverted to feature the coin slot, however this new change only affects units being produced in our factories now, and it will be some time before they are widely available.
It has a 'Tap me' feature, so just tap the front of the device and it should turn on moments after.
We do on some occasions receive feedback from customers that they are experiencing difficulties with the readings, and in most cases it is quite commonly the case where the lens has attracted dirt and simply needs to be cleaned. Begin by taking out the battery then try boiling the kettle, hold the lens over the steam for a couple of seconds and then clear with a cotton bud as this will remove any earwax, cosmetics, oil or dust that may be causing inaccurate readings. Please allow 30 minutes or so before checking the temperature as you don’t want the heat from the steam to give you an inaccurate reading. Please ensure to take the batteries out prior to completing the above probe cleaning.
It’s not uncommon to obtain different temperature between ear and forehead as ear readings reflect internal temperature whilst forehead is external, furthermore forehead will be affected by environmental factors. Please always ensure you test on the same ear as there may be a small variance between the two.
A: If you are unable to find it on the website in the individual 'product page' sections or the ‘help’ section, email us through at firstname.lastname@example.org with what instruction manual you are after and we will email you back with it attached.
The readings are accurate to within +/-0.2°C for temperatures from 36°C to 39°C and +/-0.3°C for temperatures from 34°C to 35.9°C, and 39.1°C to 42.5°C.
The Bath & Room thermometers are to the nearest +/- 1°C
The NHS recommend that a normal temperature in children is about 36.4°C (97.5°F) but this does differ slightly from child to child. A fever is usually considered to be a temperature over 37.5°C (99.5°F).
Yes; when the thermometer is off, aim it at a flat surface and press and hold the MEM button for 8 seconds. Keep it held until the letter ‘F’ appears.
Whilst we would not advise the thermometer is used in this way, accidentally shining the light in eyes will not cause any harm.
The thermometers are suitable for anyone: from newborns to adults.
4 x AAA
The thermometer will automatically record and store the last 9 temperatures measured for your convenience.
Yes, as long as the thermometer is calibrated first. Please refer to the 6-in-1 Thermometer product page on how to calibrate it.
The lens should not need cleaning, as it is non-contact. The thermometer itself is wipe-clean only. No chemicals allowed to be used to wipe it clean.
Unfortunately, the Brother Max thermometers are not suitable for use with rechargeable batteries. We recommend any AA, AAA or coin battery for the appropriate thermometer, just not rechargeable ones.
If they are low and need replacing, when you try to take a temperature, the reading will flash ‘bAt’. please see individual product information sheet from the product page
Our Returns policy entails that we only provide a product replacement return. It can only be valid if there is a manufacturing fault proved on our end with your product and if you have a valid receipt (Showing: date, time, store, product and price) within 1 year for every Brother Max product. To see if your item is valid for warranty, please email us at family @brothermax.com and include the following:
Must show proof of purchase or your warranty is voided (Physical itemized receipt showing store, date, time, year and product)
Must show us images of the fault and product
Must describe the issue in detail
Must include your full address and name
Your warranty will last for 1 year from purchase with a valid receipt only. This warranty is only valid when and if it can be proved that there is a manufacturing fault with your product from our Quality assurance team. We will also need the customers proof of purchase to validate the 1 year warranty. Proof of purchase must show store, date, time, product, price and be within 1 year of purchase to validate the manufacturing warranty on your Brother Max products. If this is not available and/or proof of purchase is outside of the 1 year, the manufacturing warranty is then invalid, meaning the customer has automatically voided their 1-year manufacturing warranty provided by Brother Max or it has expired. The next steps would be to pay for a spare part or replacement for your product.
Unfortunately, as your legally binding contract is with the store you purchased the product, if you deem there is something wrong and would prefer your money back instead us looking into the problem, please return to the store of purchase. If it is still within the 1-year manufacturing warranty that Brother Max provide and you are able to prove this with a physical itemized receipt for any and all Brother Max products, we can look into your products faults and ensure to reach an outcome. If any of the Brother Max products are tampered with, opened, changed batteries or any other form, this automatically voids the manufacturing warranty available. If it is outside of the 1 year of purchase or you do not have proof of purchase, there will be a slight charge for a replacement part of product.
