Peace of Mind and a Good Night's Sleep With the Owlet Smart Sock
Sponsored by Owlet
I'm a new mum. I have a six-week-old daughter who I absolutely adore. She is the love of my life.
When I first came home from the hospital after giving birth, I'd stay awake all night checking on her. My anxiety was high as I was nervous about how she was sleeping and her well-being, and I was not sleeping myself.
While I was initially operating on adrenaline, maintaining a schedule with no sleep was not sustainable. I knew I needed something to restore my sleeping patterns. I found it in the Owlet Smart Sock.
The Owlet Smart Sock offers peace of mind for parents. It is a wearable baby monitor in the form of a Sock that tracks your baby's heart rate and oxygen level. I receive a notification if these readings fall outside the preset zones via phone and the Base Station.
The Sock is an easy, comfy fit for your bubs. It straps on and is easily adjusted. The velcro on the Sock can be loosened as your baby grows and it comes in two sizes so you can use it until your baby is 18 months old. You simply charge the Smart Sock through the Base Station. You can view your baby’s readings on the free Owlet Care App that you download on your smartphone. It's simple and easy to use.
You can also view your baby's sleep patterns at any time. You can log into the app on your phone and check their readings as you wish, but you can rest assured that the app and Base Station will notify you if those readings fall outside present zones.
My View of the Sock and App
I found the Smart Sock offers peace of mind for me. While I still check on my daughter as she sleeps, I can get more sleep knowing that the monitor and app are working for me. The Smart Sock tracks the most important indicators of my baby’s well-being so we can all rest easier. By tracking her sleep patterns, I can adjust her sleep schedule as needed too.
I found the whole device easy-to-use. Everything is so compact, so you're not needing lots of hefty bits of technology. Alongside the highly accessible app, there's even a chat option to talk to someone in real time too.
The Sock also charges really quickly and has a 16 hour + battery life. The Base Station will continue to notify you even if your phone battery goes off or the volume is down low.
Overall, I found the whole thing easy to navigate and a good device for peace of mind. It's certainly worth it for a good night's sleep.
