As a new parent, you know that your beloved little one requires an ample amount of care and attention. Luckily, with current technological advancements, there are tools that provide you with additional support, so you can ensure your baby’s health and safety. The majority of new parent gadgets are created to monitor your child’s sleep patterns and eating habits and to let you have a remote presence. Here are some of the top baby gadgets for you and your infant:
Video Baby Monitor
Withings is a new smart baby monitor that is equipped with advanced audio and video technology. The camera gives you a wide-angle view of your baby’s room and a high-definition zoom for up-close monitoring. The camera is able to pan and tilt, so you can assess your child’s safety from all angles. The audio quality of the monitor is superb in its ability to pick up the sound of your baby’s breathing. All video and audio is transmitted via Wi-Fi to your iPhone 6, where you can view your infant’s activity and engage with him or her through speech or music. The app sends notifications to your smartphone when the monitor picks up any noise or movements.
Baby Sound Machine
Help your baby fall asleep with a sound machine that simulates the sounds of the womb. The Brookstone White Noise Sound Machine for Baby projects resonant, omni-directional sound. It has six varieties of serene sounds, composed specifically for the aid of your child’s sleep. The sounds are based on the DELTA brainwave pattern associated with deep sleep, and the rhythm of the sounds matches the natural rhythm of your baby’s sleep waves. This sound machine also has a gradual tempo and volume decrease and a timed shut-off.
Baby Movement Monitor
The Mimo baby monitor is built into a wearable onesie that you can customize to fit your little one. The cloth is made of soft, organic cotton, so your baby’s skin will not become irritated. The onesie is equipped with an information sensor that monitors your baby’s breathing, body position, sleep activity and skin temperature. You can review this data on your iPhone, and the app notifies you when your baby wakes up or changes his or her breathing pattern or body position. The body position monitor lets you know whether or not your baby is deep in slumber on his or her back or stomach.
The Itzbeen Pocket Nanny is a simple and helpful device that helps you regulate your baby’s daily schedule. The timer reminds you of feeding, changing and sleep times. The device has an integrated soft light, which allows you to read it in the dark. The timer can be set to blink rather than beep, so you don’t wake your baby with an alarming noise. It is a useful tool for parents, temporary care providers and babysitters who need to be familiarized with your child’s specific schedule.
Hope these suggestions give you something to think about as you prepare your baby’s nursery.
