Owlet Baby Sock

5.0 rating

Although not technically a product for educators (although it could be used in a childcare centre), I like to stay informed about products for parents for two reasons:

  1. If they are using something and talk to me about it
  2. If they need advice on a product and need help finding a solution to something

One thing a lot of parents are concerned about, especially with newborns is SIDS. It is a time of anxiety for many mothers and this product helps them have piece of mind at night.

When my own grand daughter was born, she did not breathe normally. It was laboured, loud and sometimes seemed difficult, particularly at night. It caused my son and daughter in law to stay awake at night listening for her breathing just in case something went wrong.

This product is fantastic. It is the gold standard in helping Mums sleep better and keeping baby safe. Here are the specs:

  • EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW BABY IS OKAY: Track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while streaming HD video and audio to your Smartphone Owlet App. Have complete peace of mind knowing you can hear, see and keep an eye on your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels from anywhere. Available in iOS and Android.

HD STREAMING W/ NIGHT VISION: The Owlet Cam’s 1080p video lets you see your baby in crystal clear detail during the day and night. SECURE, ENCRYPTED WIFI: Only those you choose can stream footage from your Owlet Cam. The Owlet Cam uses AES 128-bit encryption and TLS connection to WIFI.

INTEGRATED WELLNESS NOTIFICATIONS: The Smart Sock connects to a base station that glows green letting you know everything is okay, but uses lights, sounds, and app notifications if heart rate or oxygen levels are too high or too low. Parents can sleep better and have less anxiety knowing they have access to real-time heart rate and oxygen levels coupled with video from the Cam.

CONVENIENT, EASY-TO-USE: Each Sock + Cam includes Cam, sock sensor and 3 washable socks that comfortably wrap around the baby’s foot. Socks fit most infants from 0-18 months or 6-25 pounds and connect to a base station up to 100 feet away using Bluetooth.

TWO-WAY TALK & BACKGROUND AUDIO: Talk to and soothe your baby from anywhere or use the background audio to listen to your baby while using your phone for other tasks. OUR PROMISE: Love it or return within 45 days for a full refund, making it a great gift for baby registries and showers or as a gift to new parents. BPA free, latex free, lead-free. The Smart Sock + Cam comes with a 1-year warranty.
