We had a little bit of a scare the other night. Molly must have drank too much milk and ended up spitting up a ton of milk and choking on some of it. I know spitting up is very common in babies, but this was different than her normal spit up. She started choking on it and in between screams she would go silent and wouldn’t breathe. The screams were welcomed during this terrifying time. We learned in our infant CPR class that a crying baby is a breathing baby.
Luckily Kevin and I kept our cool and took the right steps to get her breathing normally again and she is totally ok. But this happened at 11pm and after that, we were really nervous about sleeping. We wanted to keep on eye on her all night that night and every night since. Ok who am I kidding we always want to have an eye on her. We realize that just isn’t possible which is why we are SO grateful for our Owlet Baby Monitor. It’s a tiny little sock that you put on your baby to measure their oxygen and heart rate levels. You can check those levels on your phone via an app which is so convenient. I wrote about the Owlet when I was pregnant with Molly because I was really happy I found such a great product to help me sleep once she was born. But until I actually really needed to use it, I had no idea how essential it would be to me – to us. In fact, I have been in contact with the company because I TRULY love and believe in the Owlet. I convinced them to give me another discount code for my followers! (One of you emailed me recently asking for a new code since my old code doesn’t work anymore – so I got another one! Yay!) Use the code MANNO25 to get $25 off an Owlet monitor from now until the end of August! It will be the best money you ever spent! Really. Get yours HERE.
I honestly can’t say enough about what the Owlet has given me. It’s given us peace of mind and sleep and those are two invaluable things when you have a newborn. I highly recommend getting this for your little one or making someone’s day by giving it as a gift to expecting or new parents.
