The Best Baby Tech For New Dads
If you’re the type of guy who always has to have the latest tech, that doesn’t have to change when you become a father. Baby technology tools are better than they’ve ever been with everything from smart baby monitors to Bluetooth-controlled white noise makers.
Take your tot’s room into the future with these advanced tech gadgets every dad will be glad he owns.
The iProven thermometer is a must for parents with young kids. You can choose between a forehead or ear reading, both of which show a reading in just a few seconds. The iProven is FDA approved and has a notification that will go off if the baby’s temperature reads tooItsh. It’s digital screen makes it easy to read in light or dark rooms and it saves the last 20 readings so you can see how your tot’s temperature has changed over time.
The rocker-swing combo from Graco is the soothing swing you’ve been looking for. The Duet Oasis has two recliner settings, a removable rocker and ten swing settings that mimic some of your baby’s most calming things, like a car ride, heartbeat, lullaby or stroller ride. This swing has vibration technology that tunes into sound waves to mimic the preset motions and can move front, back and side-to-side. Plus, it’s sleek look fits in any home.
Leap into the future with truly advanced technology from Owlet. The Smart Sock provides parents peace of mind while transmitting your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels directly to your phone. The base station uses lights and sounds to notify you if preset levels change so you don’t miss a notification. The comfortable sock uses pulse oximetry technology so your baby’s live readings are always just a finger tap away. Pair your Smart Sock with the new Owlet Cam for the complete baby monitoring system.
The Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine is just the tool any bottle feeding parent needs. It has an anti-bacteria filter and heats water 10-times faster than a kettle. Plus, it uses a “hotshot” — and initial burst of hot water into the bottle — to kill any remaining bacteria in the formula. The quick and easy design helps you prep a bottle one handed at three-in-the-morning in under 60 seconds so you and your babe can get back to sleep.
White Noise Maker
Hatch Baby has developed the perfect white noise maker-nightlight combo. The device can be managed using buttons or Bluetooth and lets you customize the tools based on you and your baby’s needs. Pick the nightlight color and use the “Okay to Wake” feature as your child grows to sleep-train toddlers. The white noise feature lets you choose from a variety of sounds from static to nature noises. And best of all, every feature can be set or changed remotely from your smartphone.
These baby tech tools will help you geek out over your newborn. From data collection to health monitoring, you can use technology to learn about your baby before they know how to communicate with you. That’s the beauty of these technologies — you can become closer to your baby and gain peace of mind as you learn to parent your little one.
