Becoming a mum for the first time is equal parts incredible and overwhelming – there are many things about motherhood that come naturally, and so many things we need to learn on the spot. And one of those many things we must learn on the ‘job’ is navigating our baby’s sleep… one of the steepest learning curves of all! Baby monitors are highly recommended to first time mums, but the Owlet Smart Sock Plus goes beyond a camera to help every new mum navigate the curly world of their bub’s sleep.
From those sweet newborn cuddles, the glorious toddler years of mayhem and right through to early childhood, the Owlet Smart Sock Plus is the best friend new mums can ask for.
Here are the reasons why new mums love this product from Owlet:
1. It offers peace of mind like no other baby monitor
Constantly checking on your newborn while they sleep is a new parent’s rite of passage. Thankfully, technology has come a long way, with tools like the Smart Sock Plus that can track important indicators while the baby sleeps.
The Smart Sock Plus tracks your baby’s heart rate, oxygen level and sleep trends with readings available via the Owlet Care App. That’s right – you can keep an eye on all the information you need no matter where you are without having to disrupt your bub’s sleep. That means having a cuppa in peace knowing your little one’s sleep patterns are in the palm of your hand.
2. Amazing insights right in the palm of your hand
Like we’ve said, technology has come a long way. In many parent’s worlds, technology is key to connecting with physically distanced family members and friends. So why wouldn’t you want to bring smart tech into the world of parenting?
Your newborn or little bub is too young to tell you why they might be fussing in their sleep, so having a product that does the talking for you can help bring confidence into your parenting journey.
As a mum using the Smart Sock Plus, you’ll be notified if your bub’s reading falls outside the preset zones via the Owlet Care App and Base Station. The Base Station glows green when your baby’s readings are within preset zones and lights up red to tell you if your baby’s reading has fallen outside the preset zones.
3. You can ditch the notepad when it comes to tracking sleep
Whether you’re up every two hours to feed bub or rocking your little one to sleep, you no longer need to take mental notes of how many hours of sleep your bub is getting.
The Smart Sock Plus tracks sleep trends, so you can view the total number of hours slept, the number of times bub woke up, and their overall sleep quality. And with the Smart Sock Plus’ capabilities designed to be used right up until early childhood, this device is your helping hand when creating new bedtime and sleep routines as your child grows.
No mum likes their child to be overtired… it means more work for everyone! The sleep trends collected from the Smart Sock Plus allows mums to draw their own insights into their bub’s mood – depending on how much sleep they do… or don’t get!
4. It grows with your baby
The Owlet Smart Sock Plus is designed to be used from birth right up to five years old or 25 kilos… whichever comes first! This means the Smart Sock Plus is the only baby monitor you’ll ever have to buy.
While you watch your child grow, you’ll have insights into their sleep quality that will leave you with peace of mind, which can improve your own sleep… how is that for a bonus!
5. It’s easy to use, and hard to give up
If there’s anything a new mum doesn’t have time for, it’s learning new tech! Thankfully, the Smart Sock Plus is delightfully easy to use. You don’t need to be a tech whizz, which is great for sleep deprived parents!
First time mums need simplicity when it comes to choosing baby gear – we want things to work on the first try and we want things that make parenting easier. The Owlet Smart Sock Plus empowers you as a new mum to feel more connected to your bundle of joy as they sleep – which they’ll hopefully get plenty of!
