Hi! I'm Katie from Made to be a Momma and I have two busy little boys ages 4 1/2 and 3, and a sweet little 6 week old girl. My life is busy, exhausting and beautiful, as I'm sure yours is as well, and now just a little bit more stress free with my new favorite sleep buddy, our Owlet.
Like most new moms, when I brought my first son home I would be up multiple times during the night not only with midnight feedings but to check on him and make sure everything was okay. When I brought my second son home those feelings of midnight assurances came again. Both boys slept in our room in a bassinet until they were almost 5 months old and even then it was hard to have them sleep in their own room. My mind could just never completely shut off from wondering if they were okay. When we found out we were expecting our third child I knew that I was going to have those same new baby concerns and then I heard about Owlet from a blogging friend. I was shocked that I hadn't heard of this product before and immediately thought... I NEED that… there is my answer for a peaceful night, at least for my mind.
I have had the Owlet for about 6 weeks now and it has become our third set of eyes. I love knowing that while I am catching some much needed sleep, cleaning the house or baby is napping in another room the Owlet is tracking my little nuggets oxygen level and heart rate by pulse oximetry. It is designed to notify me if readings fall out of range. The Owlet comes with three different sock sizes to grow with your child. For the newborn size sock the sensor goes on the bottom of the foot and always on the left foot. For the larger size socks the sensor goes on the top of the foot and again, always on the left foot.
Overall, my husband and I really love the Owlet and the comfort it has brought our family. We no longer are having to perform our ninja moves in the dark to prevent from stepping on any squeaky cracks. We can look at our phone and see just how well our princess is doing. I wish I had had this smart sock when my older two boys were babies. It's definitely a must have for any new parent! Thank you Owlet for helping us keep our babies a little safer one little Owlet Smart Sock at a time!
