Remember the first night you brought your sweet new baby home? That night you didn’t sleep, in fact the first week and months you didn’t sleep soundly. Why? Because you were constantly checking on your little babe. Making sure they’re still breathing, that they haven’t somehow suffocated themselves with their swaddle or their pacifier.
I will never forget the first night with Blake. I was absolutely exhausted. I had been up for literally 48 hours straight giving birth and then in so much pain I couldn’t sleep. Plus I had this new little babe that I just couldn’t take my eyes off of. The first night home from the hospital wasn’t much different. I slept in 30 minute intervals, if that. I even set an alarm every 30 minutes so that I wouldn’t sleep too long without checking on her. She was SO tiny in her little bassinet, perfectly swaddled and sound asleep. She was perfect and I was terrified of everything. What if she spit up? What if she wasn’t eating enough? What if she can’t turn her head when she needs to? All leading back to worrying she would just stop breathing in her sleep. Let’s be honest this is still a concern; however, it was just made a little easier.
Marcus and I were chatting one night, saying they should have a baby cam or something that tells you if your baby is breathing. That way you don’t have to go in and check every few minutes or wake up all night. Well we were in for a surprise.
DID YOU KNOW THEY HAVE THAT?!
It’s pretty new and called the Owlet. When we saw them, we KNEW we just had to team up with them on a collaboration for y’all.
Here’s how it works:
The Owlet Baby Monitor uses pulse oximetry—the same technology used in hospitals—to alert you if your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels are outside the norm. After two years of product development and rigorous safety testing, the Owlet Baby is available to the public now! It’s a little sock that your babe wears to sleep and it does all the work for you, meaning you can relax and sleep a little more 😉

Seriously Mamas I’ve never been so passionate about a product in my life. This thing is game changing! Blake still wears hers and it gives me peace of mind and the ability to sleep better and get more done during the day.
*We don’t recommend putting loose blankets in a crib with baby, Jess was by Blake the entire time and this was for photo staging purposes only.
