I’ve been a mom for almost 6 months now and I can quickly tell you some of my favorite baby products that made my life so much easier and stress free. One of those is the Owlet Monitor.
If you aren’t familiar with it, it’s a sock that your little one wears that monitors their heart rate and oxygen levels. I’ve heard several people debating whether these little devices are worth it or not and I’m here to tell you IT IS WORTH IT for me! We waited far too long and worked way too hard to start a family to not do everything in our ability to keep Ellie as safe as possible.
I remember the first few nights as parents while we were in the hotel, i was waking up every hour or so to make sure she was breathing. Once we got home we were able to easily setup our Owlet and it’s brought me such peace of mind! We’re fortunate to have an amazing sleeper on our hands that has been sleeping all the way through the night for months now, it’s so comforting to know that this little monitor is watching her while we all sleep.
She’s a quiet sleeper and breather so if I’m ever worried I just just pull up the app on my phone and see her Heart Rate and Oxygen levels and then go back to sleep knowing she is alive and well and this little device is keeping watch over her when I can’t. She has just recovered from her first case of RSV and I was extra thankful for this little sock to make sure our little girl was breathing well throughout the night.
I’ve heard some of the mattress pads and other options frequently have false alarms but we’ve never had that. The only alarms we’ve had is if I had forgotten to charge the sock and the battery died in the middle of the night. You can’t imagine how quickly I jumped out of bed and grabbed my baby girl when that alarm went off.
So if you are on the fence about the Owlet Monitor, it’s a BIG YES for me! I did receive this product for free but I would definitely buy this (my sister did after I told her about mine) and will recommend it to all my friends!
