As a first time mom to twins I understand the worry, stress and exhaustion a newborn brings. Sleep is no longer a “given” but is more of a prized possession once you bring that beautiful baby home! While it’s definitely worth it, there are moments when I find myself longing for just 30 minutes of uninterrupted sleep. Sometimes I get that much needed sleep, and sometimes I don’t. But when I do, I have Owlet to give me peace of mind so I can get the best sleep possible. There’s something so valuable about knowing your little one(s) are watched over while you get the sleep you need, and Owlet provides that value in my home.

But don’t just take my word for it! There are dozens of first time moms and dads out there who are raving about Owlet and the importance of peace of mind. Check out what they have to say below!

Iowa City, IA
“I knew I’d be a nervous first time mom so I splurged for peace of mind and I’m so glad I did! From the day we brought our son home it’s given me the ability to sleep so much better at night. It paid for itself a million times over recently when he had a bad case of RSV at only a month old. I wouldn’t have gotten any sleep without this. He was having such a hard time breathing when he slept that I wouldn’t have known whether he was getting enough oxygen without it. I was able to tell the doctor what his levels were during sleep so we could make a more educated decision about whether or not a hospital stay was necessary. Setup was easy (always surprised when setup for any electronic actually goes smoothly), we’ve never had a false alarm in the 6 weeks we’ve had it, and the app is very easy to use. Sometimes the sock will get disconnected if we are holding him or if he kicks it off, but that doesn’t happen very often and it’s usually user error if it comes off. If you’re on the fence because of the price, just do it. You’ll be glad you did when the 3 hours of sleep you get a night is sound sleep.”

“Every night I use my Owlet on my newborn son. As an anxious first time mom, this product has truly been a blessing to our family! Now, I rest easy knowing the Owlet is monitoring my son’s activity and it gives me the opportunity to catch up on some much needed sleep!”

Provo, Utah
“As a first time parent, I am truly grateful for the peace of mind the Owlet monitor brings. Our daughter was born two weeks early, and despite our previous preparation, I still felt scared when we brought her home from the hospital. In retrospect, I realize the reason I was scared wasn’t because we didn’t know how to take care of a baby or because we didn’t have the needed supplies (diapers, formula, crib, etc.), rather it was because there are certain things you just can’t prepare for and prevent on your own. Many people say the Owlet is a lifesaver, but what it truly is is a life alerter. The Owlet does what we cannot do easily–monitor our baby’s vitals while she sleeps and alerts us of any abnormalities. Once we are alerted, then we can be the lifesavers by helping her out ourselves because we have prepared ourselves to do so, and that is why we can sleep with peace of mind.”

Highland, Utah
“We put the sock on my son every night, and as first time parents, we could hardly sleep because we were so worried. We received our sock when our son was about 2 weeks old, and the difference was incredible. One night the red alarm went off because he had turned his face right next to his chair, and his oxygen level dropped too low. I can’t even fathom what may have happened if he wasn’t wearing the Owlet. My husband and I have said it before, but this was by far the best purchase we have ever made. It is worth every penny. Thank you Owlet team for creating such an incredible device for our sweet children.”

Castro Valley, CA
“Great to have for first time parents! We already have recommended it to our friends that were hesitant to have their baby sleep separately from them. Wish we got it sooner, would have prevented those nights where you sneak into their room or bassinet and watch for any movement, just to be sure!”

Beardstown, IL
“As a first time mom this part of gave me the peace of mind that I needed to get some rest or things done without having to worry about her. I love that she is always being monitored even when I’m not right there.”
