A Night in the Life: Owlet Gives Me Peace of Mind

April 23, 2016

This is a new post in our “A Night in the Life” series, where parents share their Owlet experience. Check out more posts in the series here.

A Night in the Life: Owlet Experience

Hi! My name is Ashley Sanderson and I am the author of The Mrs. & Co. I am married to my best friend and we have a daughter, Raegan, who is 21 months old and a son, Hudson, who is 5 weeks old.

As a first time parent I worried a lot. No one prepared me for this new adventure we were embarking on, which I learned rather quickly that you cannot prepare anyone for parenthood. You learn as you go.

Now there are many things you can worry about. Believe me, this list is long my friends. At least for me it was.

Having a baby with special needs changes everything. Raegan’s cleft palate, Pierre Robin Sequence, and sleep apnea diagnosis rocked our world. We had so many things to worry about when it came to her.

But the thing I worried about the most was sleep. Why? Because I was also asleep when Raegan was so I couldn’t watch her breathe and make sure she was ok. I know I’m not the only hovering parent out there. Can I get an amen?! I would hear her grunt or cough and immediately check to make sure she was ok.

We tried different products to help us monitor her while she slept at night. They worked fine and did their job, but I still worried.

When I became pregnant again with Hudson I knew I needed to find something that would ease my mind when he slept. Then I found the best baby item every parent should own that has completely taken my worries away when Hudson is sleeping.

Owlet product review

Not only is it designed to notify you if your baby’s oxygen levels fall out of range, but you can easily see what baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels are right on your phone!

And putting it on baby is so easy! You just slip the sock right on their foot. It comes in 3 sizes so it can grow with your baby.

Owlet - Review

Granted our little guy is a wiggler so I have to try a few times to get it right, but once I do, it’s on there snug and secure and reads his stats all night long with no problem.

I wished that it had been around when I had Raegan, but I’m so thankful that I have it now for Hudson. Knowing the Owlet is designed to notify us if Hudson’s levels are out of range helps me sleep soundly at night and gives me peace of mind.

So when I can’t be there to watch my baby, I no longer have to worry, because the Owlet is there helping me to keep watch over my little guy all night long.

The Smart Sock is the first baby monitor to track your baby’s oxygen level and heart rate—good indicators of Baby's overall well-being—while they sleep. If your baby’s readings leave preset zones, you'll receive a notification that lets you know your baby really needs you. Now you can feel more confidence, more freedom, and more peace of mind knowing that Owlet is here to help.

Our all-new Smart Sock is the third of its kind and it's smarter than ever.

Hi Amber! Yes! Owlet is designed to sound an alarm if your baby manages to kick off the Smart Sock 🙂 Let us know if you have more questions!

Does it alert you if baby kicks it off?

I just want to let you know they sell some thing like the dock alone in Sweden ( only ) for $85 plus shipping. I made one for my friend-it was the best thing he ever got. His baby was sick and they had to keep her on a heat lamp, and a lot of Dr visits for the vitals. She was snug as a bug because she traveled with this. This is the best cocoon for the baby.
Now with that said, you are monitoring the baby’s vitals with the technology, amazing.
No price could be enough for that- this looks so much better than the one I made and the technology is priceless-I would have bought this if I saw it.
Good luck to you and your company
Amazing product-

Hi Luly! Good question! We’ve taken hospital technology, pulse oximetry, and miniaturized it into a wireless Smart Sock. Hospital pulse oximeters cost upwards of $3000 and we’ve brought that down to $250! We made sure we used top quality materials when creating Owlet to bring the best user experience for our parents.

Wow this is really expensive! What new technology is in this other than what is already on the market, i.e. Pulse oximetry?

Hi Julia, that sounds like such a scary experience we’re so sorry you had to go through that! We’re glad your little one is doing okay now.

The day we brought my daughter home from the hospital she turned purple after calling 911 they helped us get her color back I’m grateful for the 911 rep as well as the 7ish paramedics that showed up. After spending 3 days in the hospital and having test after test done we still don’t have an answer as to why it happened. She did not make a sound when this happen, I just happen to look over at her, I would have loved to have had one of these. She’s not 8 months old and still sleeps in my bed so I can keep my eye on her.

Hi Lupe, each Owlet includes three different sock sizes to grow with your little one. There is a fourth sock size (the largest size) available for purchase if needed — it’s $8.

So do you have to pay $250 each time your baby grows to get a sock that fits them?

Hi Melissa, the Owlet Monitor is $249.99 and it can be purchased on our website, http://www.OwletCare.com. Thanks 🙂

How much is this and where can it be purchased at?

Hi Jennifer, this is the newborn size 1 sock. It is different than the larger sizes because it doesn’t have a toe cap, and the white owl sensor goes on the bottom of the foot. In the larger sizes (sizes 2-4), the sensor goes on the top of the foot.

Why are the socks in these pics being worn upside down? Or is this a new sock?
