World Prematurity Day

November 17, 2015

Today is World Prematurity Day. According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), 864 babies die of suffocation each year. Of those 864 babies, 564 are premature. That means 47 premature babies will pass away this month due to suffocation. This needs to stop.

Owlet wants to be part of the solution to infant death due to suffocation. To help put a dent in that number, we’re announcing a new project that will supply Owlet Monitors to parents of premature babies that may not otherwise be able to afford one.

In order to launch this initiative, we need your help! For every share this video receives on Facebook, we will donate $1 toward our new project. Our goal is to reach 11,750 shares to fund 47 monitors. That’s one monitor for each premature infant suffocation-related death that will occur this month.

Throughout the upcoming year we will distribute these 47 monitors to families who are in need. But this is only the beginning! With your support, we will be able to continue and grow this initiative, helping as many families as possible.

Join us in our efforts to end infant suffocation and share our post on Facebook.

The Smart Sock is the first baby monitor to track your baby’s oxygen level and heart rate—good indicators of Baby's overall well-being—while they sleep. If your baby’s readings leave preset zones, you'll receive a notification that lets you know your baby really needs you. Now you can feel more confidence, more freedom, and more peace of mind knowing that Owlet is here to help.

Our all-new Smart Sock is the third of its kind and it's smarter than ever.
