Owlet Smart Sock 3 Baby Monitor Only $224 Shipped on buybuyBaby.com (Regularly $300)
Baby monitors have come a long way!
This nylon spandex smart sock monitors your baby’s oxygen level, heart rate and sleep patterns without even needing to be in the room. The battery lasts up to 16 hours and can wirelessly charge on the included base station.
The Owlet Smart Sock 3 includes washable socks that comfortably fit most infants up to 30 pounds. It connects to a base station that lights up green when their levels are within a normal range, and starts to make sounds to notify you if they drop out of the normal ranges. The base can be placed up to 100 feet away from the smart sock, and you can also see real-time wellness data across multiple phones using Owlet’s free cloud-connected app.

We used the Owlet for nights and the Snuza for the day. The Owlet checks oxygen levels, which in itself is amazing technology that use to only be available at hospitals and doctors’ offices. I had a baby niece die from SIDS, and had they had this, they would have known her oxygen levels were dangerously low (what they later found out led to her death). We’ve even used it on my 18-month son when he was sick to show us his oxygen levels. Definitely was worth every penny.
Our daughter doesn’t mind it one bit. It’s a very soft fabric, it really is like an open toed sock. We love our Owlet, I sleep so much better this time around than I did when we didn’t have anything with my son.
My daughter was born at 36 weeks so we made the decision to purchase the owlet when we came home from the hospital. It gave me peace of mind to see that glowing light, and it helped me sleep easier. My fear was that we would be so tired, we might not hear her cry out. We have had only one false alarm over the past year, and it was definitely not something you would sleep through. She has never minded it being on her, and I just purchased bigger everyday socks so they were not tight over her foot with the owlet and so she wouldn’t try to take it off as she has gotten older. The only trouble I have encountered is that it does not fit in all footed sleepers well, but my daughter might just have a big foot.
