Many of you may have seen that a few weeks ago, I asked via Twitter about a good system to monitor my baby’s breathing at night. You guys were all so awesome and gave me so much great advice and shared so many products with me! One product that kept coming up over and over again was The Owlet baby monitor. Not only did a bunch of moms I’m connected with online mention it to me, but my mommy friends and even family told me about it. Some moms even told me it alerted them, so they could intervene! With that, I knew it was something I had to check out.
Well after a TON of research (and I mean a TON!) I decided to go ahead and get The Owlet monitor. It uses the same technology that hospitals use to track breathing and heart-rate, which was huge for me. If it’s good enough for the hospitals, then it’s good enough for us! And one of my favorite things about it is I can track it all on my phone. Plus, Kevin and I travel a lot for work (even though I plan to stay home as much as I can at the beginning of her life), so I really needed something portable. The Owlet is designed to alert parents if your baby stops breathing – no-matter where she is sleeping. This was important because she won’t be sleeping in her crib for about 6 months since we will want her in our room in her bassinet. And I’ve been told by so many moms that it’s trial and error while figuring out where the baby likes to sleep. Those are a few of the many reasons a portable option was so important to us.
Once I received The Owlet in the mail I couldn’t help but get emotional thinking about my little girls foot in this little sock. I’m going to love her so very much that I’m bursting at the seems and I’ll do everything in my power to keep her safe.
After I got the product, I reached out to the company and asked if I could give my followers a special offer and they said yes! Which I thought was so cool of them! If you get one, use code ‘BABYMANNO’ at checkout and get $25 off your Owlet! Get yours HERE.
Do any of you use a baby breathing monitor for peace of mind at night while your little one is sleeping? What product did you use? Have you tried The Owlet? Would you try it? Let’s discuss in the comments section below!
I love connecting with other parents and I really need all the advice I can get. I know myself and I know it’s going to be hard for me to take my eyes off my baby for one second after she arrives! At least with this monitor, I’ll feel a little better at night. And I hear sleep is something you’ll cherish more than ever once the baby arrives 😉
