I can vividly remember the first night my daughter slept in her nursery for more than just a few hours without waking up to nurse. I awoke in the middle of the night, feeling refreshed, from sleeping for about twice as long as I was used to, but anxious about why my baby hadn’t been the one to wake me up. I tiptoed into her room and knelt next to her crib with my face only inches from hers so I could check to make sure she was still breathing. Reassured by the rise and fall of her tiny chest, I went back to bed, but the minute I closed my eyes to go to sleep, her cries echoed through the silence.
Owlet Baby Care has developed an new way to monitor your baby while he or she is sleeping, giving you the peace of mind that your little one is okay without waking yourself up by getting up to check. Technology has come such a long way, and the founders of Owlet—three young fathers—decided to use it to their advantage to develop a product that would alert parents if their baby stopped breathing.
The Owlet Monitor uses hospital technology called pulse oximetry—it’s the little clip that they put on your finger when you’re in the hospital that measures your heart rate and oxygen level, and this innovative monitor has the technology integrated into a baby booty that your little one can wear while sleeping.
Here’s how the Owlet Monitor works. Get baby ready for bed as you normally would, but before you zip up the sleeper or wrap her up in a swaddle, slip the Owlet Smart Sock onto one of baby’s feet. The Smart Sock communicates with both a base station and with an app on your smartphone via WiFi, and if baby’s heart rate or oxygen level goes outside the normal range, you’ll be alerted that she needs your help. No need to set an alarm to check on your little one multiple times during the night—that’s why Owlet was created, and you can rest easier knowing that baby is being monitored, even when you’re asleep.
Owlet Baby Care has been making a difference in the lives of newborns and their parents since 2013. If you’re looking for a monitor that goes above and beyond the call of duty, your search is over. The Owlet Monitor retails for $249.99, and it’s available on their website.
