Whoever said “sleep when baby sleeps” didn’t take into account the fact that the first weeks and months of parenthood are incredibly nerve-wracking. If you find yourself waking up multiple times simply to check on your little one, it might be time to invest in a wearable monitor to help give you some peace of mind—and precious zzz’s. Our pick? The Owlet Smart Sock 2.

What We Love

  • The sock tracks oxygen levels and heart rate for up to 18 hours on one charge, and the docking station glows green to let you know all is well (no getting out of bed required)
  • One of the most common causes for false alarms is the monitor slipping off; the Owlet is designed to fit snugly on the tiniest of baby toes all the way up to 18 months
  • The Bluetooth range is up to 100 feet, allowing you to leave baby’s bedside without losing signal

Summary

Lack of sleep and constant worry is enough to drive any parent crazy; the Owlet gives you some of your sanity back with its accurate tracking and warnings.
