Thanks to Owlet Baby Care for sponsoring today’s post.
Being a new mom is one of the most amazing experiences but it can also be super stressful.
When my oldest son was born prematurely, I had a crash course in parenting. Adjusting to life as a new mom and life as a preemie mom at the same time was overwhelming and I lost a lot of sleep, not only because my baby wasn’t sleeping, but because I was worried about what would happen to him while I was sleeping.
My son came home from the hospital at just over 4 pounds.
As a first-time mom, I was seriously worried I was going to break him. He came home on lights for jaundice and a strict feeding schedule and follow-up plan.
The first night he was home, I put him to sleep in his bassinet with the lights, and literally sat and watched him all night long.
I didn’t even try to sleep. I watched a Will and Grace marathon on TV and made sure my baby kept breathing.
The thought of going to sleep and leaving him unsupervised was paralyzing for me.
I did not know how I was supposed to sleep and be responsible for this tiny preemie’s care 24 hours a day.
Fortunately, we figured it out eventually, but not before I became seriously sleep deprived.
I know many first-time moms and moms of preemies who have a similar experience. It’s so hard to put your baby to bed at night and trust that he will be okay while you sleep.
What if there was a way to ease your mind while your baby sleeps?
I just discovered the Owlet Baby Monitor and I wish it had been around when I first became a mom.
The Owlet is the first smart baby monitor of it’s kind. It uses hospital technology—pulse oximetry—designed to alert you if your baby stops breathing.
Can you image how much that would ease your mind as a new mom?
I’ve been a mom for a while now but even with my twins, who were also born prematurely, it was a struggle to let go of that worry when I put them in their crib.
How does the Owlet Baby Monitor Work?
The Owlet Baby Monitor takes hospital technology, called pulse oximetry, and incorporates it into a snuggly baby sock. I love how soft and snuggly it is and the modern design fits right into the nursery.
It’s more than just looks though. The technology within the Owlet has undergone over 100,000 hours of testing and is designed to give you one less thing to worry about.
I know I could use one less thing to worry about and I’d be willing to bed you could too.
The Owlet is totally wireless and connects via bluetooth to a base station and via Wi-Fi to your smartphone.
The Base Station is your primary alert, but for added convenience, you can remotely monitor and view live vitals right from your smartphone.
They currently have an iOS app and the Android app launches June 6th. Check out the Owlet Baby Monitor here for additional details.
