A Night in the Life: Second-Time Momma
There’s a lot to be learned in this whole parenting gig. You’re never truly a pro but there is the title of veteran that gets passed around from time to time. After the birth of my second in September, I thought for sure I was eligible to be called a veteran mother. My eldest, Remy, was 3 years old; I had survived the newborn phase unscathed and was even navigating the toddler stage pretty well. And then my little dude Theodore was born and my world was turned upside down.
You’d think I’d ease up on the mom anxiety for baby number two, but no, I was on high alert for those first few weeks. I’d peek into Theo’s bassinet every 20 minutes or so just to make sure he was breathing; I was barely sleeping in between feedings. It was starting to become an issue. Until I received the Owlet Monitor.
I was hesitant to try a wireless monitor. Sure, I’m part of a generation where technology is king but to monitor the safety of my child? Ah, not so much. But the benefits were too amazing to ignore. I love how it tracks Theo’s heart rate and oxygen levels, and is designed to notify me if either fall out of range. I also love that I don’t have to risk waking him up to make sure everything’s okay. I can simply login to the Owlet app on my phone and check Theo’s heart rate and oxygen levels without any fuss.
The Owlet Monitor has really given this momma peace of mind. I can rest assured that clinically-proven technology is helping me watch over my baby and I get some extra sleep at night. Having that extra coat of armor on my little guy helps settle my mom anxiety and for that I am eternally thankful!
