Owlet, A Parent’s Tech-y Peace Of Mind

Bringing baby home is a nerve wrecking experience. Within the comfort of the hospital, new and veteran parents can rest a bit easier knowing that there is a trained staff watching over their bundles of joy.

Leaving the security of the hospital and into baby-proofed houses, parents experience lack of sleep, fluctuating hormonal levels, and general nervousness. This flurry of emotions will charge any parent to frequently check in on their infant, even more so if their newborn has any health complications.

Offering a tech solution to parents of newborns is Jordan Monroe’s Owlet, a baby bootie like sock that monitors your infant’s vital levels and issues an alert if something is wrong. According to PSFK, Owlet works “by using a beam of light that passes through the baby’s foot. The circulation inside the foot alters the light and a sensor in the end catches all these changes. Through this method, the Owlet can measure both blood oxygen levels and pulse. The same technology is used but with stronger lights in the finger clips in hospitals.”
