Owlet – Know your baby is okay… A product that tells you what your baby can’t.
When my twins were only one year of age, my Sophie suffered a horrible atypical febrile seizure which put us in the Children’s Hospital for a week. I found her in her crib at 6:30am in a full seizure. It was truly the most terrifying experience that I have ever gone through! To this day, I still question just how long she may have been seizing prior to me finding her. I blame myself for not having been awakened to realize something wasn’t right. Perhaps I could have done something to prevent or mitigate this horrible incident.
Although my daughter is completely healthy and thriving despite the seizure, the experience left me with horrible anxiety! Even when my twins began sleeping through the night, I was up every few hours checking on them to ensure that they were okay and sleeping soundly. I couldn’t get back to a normal sleep schedule as I was so worried about their well being. This left both of my husband and I exhausted and stressed, which doesn’t bode well for a hard working husband and a Mother chasing twins all day! 😉
I came across Owlet Baby Care in the third trimester of my pregnancy with my son. Owlet Smart Sock is for infants and toddlers age 0-18 months or 25 pounds and is designed to track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels and notify you if levels fall out of normal range. The Owlet app displays your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels and notifies you in real time if something is wrong. I wish more than anything that I would have known about this incredible company when my twins were newborns! The peace of mind that this product provides is such a gift for new parents!
My son is 6 weeks old and has been wearing his Owlet Smart Sock since the day that we brought him home from the hospital. Every night I put my son down, I know that I can rely on Owlet to let me know what my baby cannot. No more waking every hour, hovering over the crib, prodding and poking to make sure that he is breathing and well! The peace of mind that this product has given me, along with the incredible stretches of sleep, has made Motherhood that much more tenable, has left me rested and better able to be the best Mom that I can be to my children the next day!
The Owlet Smart Sock, in my opinion, is by far the best investment in a product a parent can make for their newborn.
Thank you for the incredible peace of mind Owlet,
Kelly, Sophie, Olivia & Carter xo
