In our last post about baby must haves, I had the Owlet on my list of 5 things I can't live without, and this product is so great I wanted to do a whole post just about it!
First off, I cant even believe the technology that is out these days. I don't know how I would live way back when there was no modern medicine, and none of the other 5 things that were on my must have list! Its amazing the things we have nowadays, and I feel incredibly lucky to be having a baby in this modern world! That being said.. The owlet is definitely one of those modern technologies that every new mom needs to have! If you're not familiar with it, the Owlet is a "smart sock" that your baby wears while sleeping. It uses pulse oximetry (the same technology as the little red light they clip on your finger at the doctor's office) to track your little one's heart rate and oxygen levels. It connects to a Base Station, and from there, you can also view live readings your phone.
When I first received the package it came in this cute blue box, and when you open it up the sock is displayed exactly how its suppose to fit on the baby's foot which is very helpful because my brain power is not the strongest these days. The box comes with directions on how to set it up, and it surprisingly very simple, it took me about 10 min to get the whole thing up and running. The first thing you have to do is download the app, and then once you have that setup you get the base connected to your internet and voila! your'e ready to use it! The owlet comes with 3 different socks so as your baby grows you can change out the sock which is super awesome considering my baby already has big feet! She must get it from her daddy who wears a size 14... lol
The first night I used it I was a little skeptical that it would actually work and I continued to check on her throughout the night, but once I used the owlet for a couple days I completely trust the technology, and instead of being the crazy mom who checks on her baby every 5 min, I sleep so much better knowing that the owlet notification is designed to sound if heart rate or oxygen fall outside of the preset zones. Its also fun to check the app and see what her heart rate and oxygen levels are at, I swear I check it probably every ten minutes because its so fascinating to me! Seriously, you cant go wrong with this product, and it is definitely worth the money just by the extra sleep you gain!
