Owlet Basics: More Than a Sock
March 1, 2016
“Socks fall off.” We hear it all the time! Unless you’re looking closely, you might think that Owlet comes with a normal, everyday sock. And yes, those things tend to slip off. We can’t tell you how many days our little one has mismatched socks!
Here’s the thing: The Owlet Smart Sock is no ordinary sock. Each sock is hypoallergenic, latex-free, and made of organic cotton. It is equipped with a velcro strap on the back to keep it on nice and snug. It’s more of a cross between a bootie and a shoe than a sock, but “Smart Sock” sounds so much better than “Smart Bootie,” don’t you think?
It gets better. Owlet comes with three different-sized socks, because babies’ feet are so different. Need we mention how fast they grow, too?! The different sizes help ensure a good fit on your little one’s foot. As time passes and your little guy grows, just move up to the next size!
There will be spills, and we’re ready for that! Come on, is there anything worse than a dirty sock? We think not. Just make sure to remove the electronics before you toss the socks in the wash and you’re good! Please don’t make the mistake of tossing the entire sock in the wash. Like any electronic devices, the Owlet components will not survive a dip in the pool or the washing machine. We repeat: the electronics are NOT washable!
One last thing. We love footed pajamas, and we’re so glad that Owlet works with them. Yep, the Smart Sock and Base Station will communicate just fine if Owlet is worn under footed pajamas or even, dare we say it, normal socks! So bundle up your little guy in his cutest PJs and know that Owlet is under there, helping you out as he sleeps.
Fly on over to our How it Works page to learn more about how the Owlet Smart Sock uses empowering technology, designed to notify you if you baby’s oxygen level falls out of range.

A Chronological Hospital Bag Checklist
December 16, 2015
Especially if this is your first baby, it can seem almost impossible to know what exactly you’ll need when the big moment arrives. You check-in at the hospital for 2 but will check-out as 3, and that in between time rarely goes exactly as you imagine. I’ve found that the best way for me to…
