Most people think that with each baby you have, you stress less. That with your first baby, you are a ball of stress but by baby number 2, 3 or 4 you are a professional. But I don't think that is the case. Especially with large amount of information that swirls around the internet. Its incredible that we have this much information at our fingertips, but it also sometimes causes more worry. Especially for us mamas that are sometimes up all night either googling a rash, nursing every hour or just checking that our baby is still breathing.
When I had Mia, 2 years ago, I remember going to Mia's one month check up and the Pediatrician asking me how we were doing. And I literally broke down and said, I cannot sleep. I am so stressed about her not breathing or how horrible, but not waking up in the morning. He laughed at me and said - "Isn't this your 3rd?".
So when I was pregnant with Olivia, I knew I had to have the Owlet Smart Sock. And let me tell you, it has brought some good nights for us! The Owlet Smart Sock 2 uses pulse oximetry to track your infant's heart rate and oxygen levels and is designed to notify you if something appears to be wrong. This little sock literally takes all my anxiety away when we lay down to sleep each night. I can rest easily, knowing that I will get a notification to my phone if any readings are off. Check out the video below to see more about it!
The little sensor is right next to her bassinet and my bed. (She is obviously still in our room). The app was so easy to download and set up. And it is totally user friendly. You just slip the sock on and click the sensor to make sure its on. There is a dim little light they lets you know its on and its working. I honestly love the Owlet. I was slightly skeptical, becuase I feel like there are so many baby products out there and its hard to choose what you actually need. But for any new mom, I would say this is a must have to put on your registry. Peace of mind is worth every single penny you spend.
