Wanna guess? Oh come on, take a guess...
If you guessed it's because the skin on your wrist is thinner than on your hands, you're...right! What you may not have known is that your elbow is also a prime testing spot for warm milk. Or you could bypass your body altogether and put your baby's safety in the hands of these baby bottle temperature indicators. Oh, rapacious capitalism dressed in the sheep's clothing of science, what would we ever do without you??
(On another note, do you think this company could have made their product photo a little less...um, you know...phallic? Yes, I know, I'm terrible...)
