When I had Ashton last year, he slept in his bassinet right next to my bed every night. I wanted to watch his every move while he slept, and make sure that he was breathing okay. Ashton use to breath really hard while he slept, and it made me so nervous and we took him to the doctor to make sure nothing was wrong. At that time they gave him a breathing treatment, and he was put on a breathing machine which we had to do two times a night (in the middle of the night). Talk about never sleeping peacefully because Ahmad and I were so worried all the time.
Recently I was introduced to the Owlet Baby Monitor and had seen the brand all over social media. I was curious about how it worked and watch their video and learned more. Of course, I was nervous at first about trying out a device and putting it on my baby. After Aubri was born we started to using it when Aubri would sleep at night. We connected the device to our phone through the mobile app where we could monitor her vitals. If you read Aubri’s birth story, you know that her heart rate fell during labor, and even though I know she is fine, this monitoring system gives me a peace of mind.
How it Works:
“The Owlet empowers you with the same technology hospitals use, pulse oximetry. There’s a reason hospitals use pulse oximetry in place of other monitoring options. It’s safe, proven, and accurate.” The Owlet is designed to let you know if your baby stops breathing, and allows parents be able to sleep at night. The monitoring system is designed to alert you if vitals fall outside of range with your baby, so you can intervene.
I highly recommend the Owlet Smart Sock to all parents. I wish I had this technology with Ashton so that I could have slept peacefully. Make sure to head to the Owlet site for more information, and if you don’t have kids this makes a great gift for a baby shower!
