Hi friends, fellow mamas, and friends to new mama’s! Today’s post is extremely important to me to share with you guys because it is a product I truly love and once Charli is done using it I will be sure to pass it along to a friend. It is one of those items that you think to yourself, why didn’t we have that when my kids were babies – I know because I thought the same thing about my boys!
As a new mom – whether it be your first or your third or probably even your fifth, when you get home from the hospital it is slightly impossible to sleep, no matter how tired you are. Every little noise, movement or sigh your baby makes, you are jumping out of the bed to see if they are okay – watching their chest to make sure they are breathing at a normal rate and checking their skin color to make sure they look like they are getting enough oxygen.
We decided to try out the Owlet Baby Monitor after seeing so many great reviews online. Literally, it was instant piece of mind once I saw her heart rate and oxygen levels pop up on my phone. That night anytime I heard any ‘suspicious’ sweet baby noises, I only had to roll over to check my phone if I needed comfort or I could just look at the Owlet home station and check the light to also see that everything was okay.
I really liked that when it had a hard time reading or Charli woke up crying to eat – if she kicked it out of place it would turn yellow and play a lullaby to let me know that it wasn’t reading properly. I was super nervous it was going to play an alarm when it got knocked off so was extremely thankful to know that it didn’t do that!!
What exactly is the Owlet Baby Monitor and Smart Sock 2? It empowers you with pulse oximetry technology that is used in doctor’s offices and hospitals around the world. Using this proven technology, you can view your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels in real-time on your phone. Basically, it reads your babies levels in a similar way they do it in the hospital when they do the oxygen test on babies hands and feet 24 hours after birth!
So now you can rest at ease either during nap time or bed time knowing your baby has not only yours and your husbands exhausted eyes watching over her but also that she is being tracked to make sure he/she is sleeping soundly and doing well!
