Hi! My name is Cassie and I am a first time mom. We started using the Owlet when our daughter was 2 weeks old.
The first couple days after bringing our daughter home from the hospital, my husband and I found ourselves waking up multiple times throughout the night to make sure she was still breathing. Being new parents, we didn’t have anything to compare her sleeping patterns to, constantly worrying, and losing more sleep than we already were. Little did we know, newborns make all sorts of noises in their sleep, and every time we would hear a sound we would be jumping out of bed to check on her. Even though we always assumed she was breathing normally and everything was fine, we couldn’t get ourselves to stop checking. After chatting with friends about their newborn sleep habits, they told us about the Owlet, and how much better they sleep since using the monitor.
Once we received our Owlet, we got the reassurance we needed while our daughter slept. Our baby has always been a little squirmy, and I was nervous that the sock would fall off her tiny foot, but I was completely wrong. The Owlet newborn sock fits comfortably on her little foot, and stays on throughout the night no matter how much she kicks and moves. We understand that this is not a medical device, but can honestly say we felt we could rest a little easier with it in our house.
I am really impressed with the user-friendly application that links to the Owlet device to check your baby’s levels. It so easy to navigate and simple enough for anyone using it. I found it extremely helpful while setting up our Owlet and answers many questions right on the app without having to do further research on any websites.
My husband and I feel extremely grateful to be able to use the Owlet. Not only are we getting more sleep as our daughter sleeps, we also know that she’s sleeping peacefully as well. We haven’t moved her out of our room yet, but I am confident that it will be a smoother transition knowing that we have the Owlet to monitor when she’s in her own room. We highly recommend this device to anyone with babies! This is a great product for first time parents still getting the hang of everything, or for the families bringing home their third or fourth child. I am happy to say that we are Owlet users and love the product. Thank you Owlet for monitoring our baby!!
