Sleeping Peacefully with a Newborn

I can’t believe our sweet baby Aisla is almost 2 months old! I need to really invent a remote of some sort to slow time down! Many of you know that I gave birth to her a little bit earlier than expected & she ended up staying in the NICU for 9 days. In the NICU she was treated for RDS (Respiratory Distress Syndrome). Although we were lucky enough to have only stayed for 9 days, it was definitely the longest 9 days of our lives. My heart was split in two places at once, we were in the NICU with Aisla 24/7 & it was the first time that I’ve spent time away from Aleia. Having a babe in the NICU is one of the scariest & saddest experience. Fortunately, unlike many babies in the NICU Aisla recovered fast & we were able to bring her home & be a family of four sooner that we thought.

For the first 9 days of Aisla’s life she was hooked into so many monitors that it was overwhelming. She was hooked into a Cpap machine, heart monitor, IV line, feeding tube & she was also intubated & given surfactant. Coming home I had the biggest anxiety about her well-being. Although, she had slowly come off monitors day-by-day, as a mom it’s inevitable not to worry.

Thankfully, when we got home the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam were waiting for us. The Owlet Smart Sock has been a complete game changer for me! It has reduce my newborn anxiety so much & I’m able to rest when Aisla is sleeping.

I love that the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam allows me to see, hear & know Aisla is ok at all times. The Owlet Smart Sock + Cam track your baby’s heart rate & oxygen levels while streaming video & audio to your phone. Whenever Aisla is napping in our room & I’m playing with Aleia in the living room I’m able to check live readings of her heart rate & oxygen levels & if they fall outside of preset zones the base station and the Owlet app on my phone will notify me right away.

The camera live streams from anywhere, secure, encrypted Wi-fi, has night vision, room temperature sensor, two-way audio, HD 1080p video, 130 wide angle lens & has an adjustable magnetic base.

Honestly, I couldn’t be more thankful for this technology. The Owlet Smart Sock + Cam, has definitely made the last 7 weeks less worrisome & has allowed me to sleep peacefully.
