I think you are given a sixth sense when you become a mother. You have a constant radar synced with your new baby that is always on high alert mode. Your ears perk at the sound of anything you are unfamiliar with. Your heart races if you suspect something might be a little off. You may even wake up a little too often when the sixth sense is in overdrive mode. I used to wake up in a panic every night to make sure my first born son was still breathing. I was so worried I wouldn’t hear him if he was in distress. Those fears never leave you, although with your fourth baby you rest a little easier. However, I often wished my heightened senses would calm down and let me sleep!
When I heard about the new Owlet Baby Monitors, I had my jaw on the floor. Where was this the first time around?! Ah the hours of sleep I would have saved! This monitor is a smart sock you slip onto your baby (it comes in three sizes), that uses a technology called pulse oximetry that doctors have used for decades. Its connected via bluetooth to a dock station that will alarm you if the oxygen or heart rate levels are off. We have gotten into a good rhythm of using the monitor, and Rocco doesn’t even notice it’s on. Happy there are a few sizes of the socks so we can use it as he grows too.
I highly recommend you head to the site and watch the incredible experiences of mothers who have used this product. The stories are fascinating. I know these Owlet Baby Monitors are going to going to help many parents across the globe. Definitely something to put on your Babylist registry. Also, something to note- you can get $10 off the Owlet Baby Monitor by clicking here. No code needed, as it automatically adjusts for In Honor of Design readers.
I just call it my guardian angel service (wink wink). I sleep with a little more ease now. I entered Rocco’s info into the Owlet app which will also alarm if something is wrong. Pretty brilliant right? Of course, you should never fully rely on a device to take care of your child, but it can certainly be of service when you are unaware that your child is in trouble. So thankful for the engineers who created this device. I welcome any extra help in keeping my lil man Rocco safe:)
