When I had King I became a complete paranoid momma. I would check on him 8-10 times a night when he was sleeping in OUR ROOM! Seriously you guys… I had serious anxiety about him… Where I am a pediatric nurse, I play every worst case scenario in my head over and over… My biggest fear was for him to stop breathing in his bed. I made Zach get him in the mornings (if he slept in his crib) because my anxiety was so high that he could have stopped breathing… Ha I was a HOT MESS!
I had previously seen a pin on Pinterest for the Owlet Baby Monitor when I was first pregnant and wanted one, but they weren’t available for purchase yet… I had lost the pin and forgotten the name of this amazing product that I hoped would ease my fears of the crazy overprotective momma that I am/was.
I finally found the Owlet Baby monitor again and snagged it as quick as I could! You guys, this is something that I wish the hospitals would send home every new mom with. It is this little sock that you place on your little ones toes. It has 3 sizes from newborn to their first birthday or if they are little even longer! It has a pulse oximeter in the sock that syncs to the little white circle pictured below. The white circle connects to your in home internet and sends their heart rate, respiration rate, and a graph of where they are on a normal scale to an app on your phone where you can easily see how your little one is doing. The app will sound if they move out of normal range, or you can set the dock station in their room to sound, which ever you prefer.
It is something so easy and noninvasive that changes my state of mind as a mom. I know that nothing will tell you how your little one is better than your own eyes and nothing will replace that, but this give me so much more peace of mind for when he naps or is sleeping. It has completely changed my life and now I can’t live without it.
