Happy Friday Eve babes! Can I get an Amen to the weekend almost being here! This weekend we are going to do our first trip to our parents’ houses so more family can meet Sawyer and go to a Mardi Gras party so I am looking forward to getting away and feeling a bit more human again! So I am excited to start a new series on my blog with some of my favorite baby products! I did soooooo much research when it came to baby products so I am excited to share some reviews of products that I think are must haves!
My first review is a product that once I became pregnant I put on the top of my list, the Owlet. As a first time mom I knew I would be the one to hover over my child to make sure they are still breathing haha. I mean I would do that with my nephew when I babysat him so I knew I would be extra crazy with my own child. Also I was super excited when they came out with the camera that goes hand and hand with the Owlet sock! You download one app and you can view your child along with live readings of their heart rate and oxygen.
Once I received the Owlet sock and Cam in the mail it was super simple to set up. You just link it to your wifi and follow the simple steps from the app and then you are ready to go! What I love about the cam is that is has 1080p HD video and 130 degree wide angle lens, so you can see your baby so clear! The cam is also magnetic so you can twist and turn it to any angle, which is so helpful when setting it up! Also the night vision is amazing and I love that when your baby’s eyes are open in the dark they glow so it is easy to see if their eyes are closed. One thing that was a selling point on the cam is that it has encrypted wifi! So you don’t have to worry about anyone hacking into your wifi and viewing your child. I read so many creepy stories about that and it freaked me out! The app also displays the room temperature and you can turn on background audio so if you want to close the app you can still hear your baby! It also has two way audio so you can talk to your baby as well!
As for the sock, it has given me so much peace of mind! I love seeing Sawyer’s live readings of his heart rate and oxygen and knowing that if his levels do drop out of the normal range it will notify me. You can see how easy everything is to view with the screenshot below. You can also turn your phone for full screen of the camera view and it still keeps his heart rate and oxygen on the top of the screen.
Overall Griffin and I have loved the Owlet sock and cam! Being new parents can be full of anxiety and the Owlet gives you one less thing to have to worry about! I know the sock can be an investment, but Owlet now takes HSA/FSA cards which I think is such a great option! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! <3
