Meet the Dads That Founded Owlet

June 16, 2017

We’re introducing you to the amazing fathers who brought Owlet to life. But before we dive in, I want to share a few observations regarding these men. First of all, coordinating a photo shoot is not easy – especially ones involving children. These men (with the help of their amazing wives) owned every minute of it. I was impressed to see how genuine and sincere each interaction was with their children during the entire session. As the day went on, it became increasing clear to me that these men are fathers first. Their passion to help children and infants around the world starts in the home. As a father myself, I know how hard it is to maintain a work-life balance and these guys get it. I’m grateful to know each of them personally and can’t wait to see what they dream up next. – Evan Griffin, Brand Director – dad to Vienna 6, Rome 4 and London 2

Dad Tip: Be more patient. My biggest regret as a father has been that I wasn’t more patient with my first child. I realized parenting is tough and new for me but everything was new for my child. Literally he was doing everything for first time and I needed to see it as an opportunity to teach rather than an opportunity for me to be frustrated.

Dad Tip: Realize that your kids can teach you about being happy and how to be in the moment. It’s really easy to want to just get from point A to point B and get frustrated that your kid is not walking fast enough. Instead I try to enjoy whatever is slowing down my son. We might get detoured by a bird for 20 minutes or a puddle for 15 minutes but the reason my son wants to stay and see/play with it is because he is interested and is enjoying himself. I try to enjoy it with him and it makes me a more patient and happy dad.

Kids: 3 (All boys)

Favorite Disney Movie: Zootopia

Dad Tip: Be sure to find time each day to truly be in the moment with your children and not just physically present. This is harder than it sounds when you have so many things competing for your attention. Email, deadlines, notifications; they can all wait.  Spend quality time with your kids.

Kids: 2 (2 girls and one on the way!)

Favorite Snack Time Treat: Oreos


Jacob Colvin – International & Co-founder

Age: 34

Dad Tip: Give your kids your best time. It will be tempting or most convenient to give them whatever you have left at the end of the day but that isn’t fair to them. I ask myself, “How do I want my kids remember me?” The answer never is tired, exhausted and stressed with work. Find the time of the day where you can be the type of dad your kids deserve.

Favorite Playtime Activity: Science experiments, building forts and singing silly songs.

The owlet sock is a God sent. I recommend it to any new mom. It gives you such a peace of mind and allows you to get good rest while your baby is asleep. It is so easy to use and with the owlet care app actually allows you to track your babies sleep cycles.

Thank you


Hi Terri! For individual sock sizes, you’ll want to contact our customer service team at (844) 334-5330. If you’d like a full sock set, you can find those on our website here: https://owletcare.com/collections/owlet Best wishes to you!



My daughter purchased the Owelet. She needs another sock for newborn. She is due in april.
Do you know where I could get her one? Thank you so much. Terri rinne.


Hi Cherie! Each Owlet comes with 3 socks sizes to grow with your little one. It was designed for infants 0-18 months. We do not take Afterpay but we do offer refurbished units at a discounted price from time to time. We also have gift cards that family members or friends can purchase to contribute. We hope that helps!



My baby was born 3 months early and has Down syndrome, after 100 days in hospital she is now home and I’m a worried mess, this I feel would be perfect as I am a single mum also so I only have myself to the perfect as I am a single mum also so I only have myself to rely on, do the kits come in infant socks and do you take after pay ? Thank you



Owlet has been a game changer for my peace of mind with my second child! It is literally my favorite baby product of all time! Also, customer service is top notch! Shout out to Bethany, she has been amazing to speak with! Thank you Owlet for helping this momma sleep a little sounder!

I just wanted to say that we love the owlet! We bought this two years ago for our first born, we as new parents was so worried about everything. Once we received the owlet, we really had a strong peace of mind as we slept. In the past two years we told every new parent we knew to get it and that this would be their best purchase. Four months ago we had our second child and we are so glad we have this owlet to use once again. But now owlet went one step further and offered us a free upgrade on a new sock. It’s due to come in any day and we are excited to use it and greatful that owlet kept us in the loop with the current customers. Thank you!

As a first time mom i was so excited about this product!!!
I had some issues with the 1st owlet the socks did not fit well, and the base would never stay connected. I called hoping they could tell me what I was doing wrong, it didnt have enough range.
Well the representative was so helpful!!! This company is a class act and has the best customer service ive seen in YEARS!!!!!
They sent me the updated Owlet and we have been so happy I tell and encourage everyone to get one ☺
