A few years before I had kids, my cousin had a scare that sent them to the hospital only days after bringing home their newborn. I heard my cousin tell the story about how she was holding her baby and felt her stop breathing and I never quite got over it. My little cousin ended up being fine and was diagnosed with sleep apnea that was then treated, but I remember thinking “what if they hadn’t been holding her when she stopped breathing?”
I don’t think there’s anything more frightening than being handed a teeny tiny little baby and sent home with it, knowing that you are solely responsible for keeping that child safe. 24 hours a day. A time in which I would need to sleep, shower, and at some point, work from home. I vividly remember the first few days of parenthood when I would check my daughter’s breathing about 10 million times an hour and would only be able to concentrate on something else for a second if I had verified with 100% accuracy that she was, in fact, still breathing.
There were times I did some really crazy things because I couldn’t see her little chest rise and fall from my vantage point, including jumping out of the shower with shampoo and soap everywhere or pulling to the side of the road because I couldn’t see her well in the baby mirrors.
• Small, portable, and wire-free movement monitor fits onto baby's diaper
• The ultra-sensitive flexible tip detects the slightest of movement
• Audible alarm after 15, 18 or 20 seconds of no movement
• Movement-rate indicator to warn about weak or infrequent movement
We've had so much fun testing the monitor and seeing how accurate it is. Even my big kids loved trying it on and seeing how still they could sit until the monitor alarm would sound. If you're wondering, they were never able to trick it. It's that good. Bonus: when big kids test the monitor they sit really, really still trying to make the alarm go off. This just may be a fun doctor's office game.
