As the Co-Founder of Baby Bodyguards, National Safety Expert, American Heart Association CPR Instructor and Mother of 3 small children, I am always on the look out for products that will help save the lives of babies and give parents peace of mind and comfort at the same time. A lot of products that I come across are unnecessary , create a false sense of security or just seem to prey on the fears of new sleep deprived parents. Recently, I have come across a product that is incredible and worth every penny. It is called the Owlet and is already saving lives.
The Owlet is a sock that goes on babies foot and monitors their heart rate and oxygen levels while they sleep using pulse oximetry. The Owlet is designed to alert you if your baby stops breathing. If the baby stops breathing you will get an alert on your phone as well as an independent base station. It is reasonably priced at $250 and available on their website.
