We are over the moon to be working with Owlet today! (you'll see why as you continue reading) They are an awesome company and we can't say enough great things about them. If you are a parent, hope to be a parent or know a parent - you need to read on and see what all the hype is about. Also, there are some pretty cute Pepper pictures!
When Elliott was a born, we lucked out and that boy started to sleep through the night at three weeks. However, with that great miracle also came stress. I was constantly checking him to see if he was breathing. He always was, but as a new mom that was always on my mind. Fast forward to Pepper's birth. When she was born, she had a few medical issues and needed to spend a little time in the NICU. Thankfully it was not a long stay, though going home without my brand new baby girl was the hardest thing I have ever done. She was hooked up to all of these big machines that were loud but told us she was ok. Once we got her home I felt like I could finally relax. She was home and healthy. What more could I ask for? When it came for us to settle down for the night, I was at ease and for only one reason; Owlet. This sweet little sock monitor that does the job of those big loud machines in the NICU by telling me she breathing and sleeping soundly. It is seriously heaven sent. Of course, nothing beats your own eyes, checking on your baby, but Owlet gives us some peace of mind.
It's really easy to use and is comfortable for her little foot. Every night, we put it on her, set it up and even though it has a pretty loud alarm that will go off if needed, we still like to check in before we go to sleep just to check. And when she is moving around and the Owlet can't get a good reading, it says "Pepper is wiggling" which I think is the cutest thing. Then, after our good nights sleep, we turn it off, pick her up, take off the sock and plug it in to charge for the next use. It's seriously a dream come true for a parent with a new little one, and in my opinion, absolutely worth every penny. Also, it comes with several different sock sizes so you can start with the smallest and as your little one grows, change out the sock size to continue your peace of mind.
A huge thanks to Owlet for sponsoring this post - we really love their product and know you will too!
