What You Need to Know About the Newborn Sock
May 16, 2016
By now you probably know that Owlet comes with four different sizes of fabric socks to grow along with your little bundle. But, did you know that two of those socks are designed specifically for newborns? The newborn socks are easy to identify and use. So, without further ado: the top three things you need to know about the newborn sock.
1. Alternate Feet
If you’re really attentive, you may have noticed us referring to four “socks” up above. Yep, not one but *two* newborn socks come in the Owlet box. Because newborn baby skin can be extra sensitive, we suggest that you switch the foot that Owlet is on every 4-24 hours. Switching it up will help prevent irritation that newborn skin is especially prone to.
2. “Peek-a-Boo” Toes
Pull out all the socks from the box and you’ll notice one thing off the bat: two of the socks don’t look like socks at all. The newborn socks are designed without a toe-cap, and your baby’s toes will be mostly visible when the sock is on. Velcro straps on the heel and bottom of the foot keep the sock on nice and snug. Of course, you can put everyday socks over the top of Owlet if you want to keep those toesies extra warm at night!
3. Bottom of the Foot
The newborn sock is designed to fit with the Sock Electronics band resting on the outside of the foot. The easiest way to make sure that happens is to place the Owlet logo from the electronics on the bottom of your baby’s foot. Think about the velcro strap from the sock like a little shoe. It curves around from the inside of the foot to the outside, across the top.
Just remember that when you graduate to the next sock size, the white owl face on the sock sensor goes on the top. We think it’s helpful to think of starting at the bottom, and working your way up!

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…
