2 am. The house is quiet. The baby is fast asleep in his bassinet. I should be fast asleep too, but I’m not.

Why? Because every single time I close my eyes, I worry if he’s okay.

It’s crazy, right? I should be enjoying the times he is actually asleep in his bassinet (and not in my arms), but there’s this fear that something might happen to him. Instead of resting, I’m checking on him every 10 minutes – putting my hand on his chest to make sure he’s okay. And if I do happen to doze off, I wake up suddenly – feeling worried.

According to Dr. Google, this is a common problem amongst new mums (thank goodness I’m not alone!). There’s even a name for it – mumsomnia!

Thankfully, there’s also an ingenious baby monitor system that can help make this fear go away. It’s called the Owlet Smart Sock + Cam and, honestly, it’s one of the best inventions for new parents I’ve ever come across.

The system involves two devices — a Smart Sock that uses pulse oximetry to track baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels, and a Camera that lets you see, hear and speak to your baby. It also allows you to check details, like room temperature.

The devices are easy to use, the quality is amazing and the peace of mind they provide is worth every single cent! Find out more about the Owlet Smart Sock & Cam and decide if it’s the right baby monitor for you.

Key Features of the Most Advanced Baby Monitor System yet – The Owlet Sock + Cam

You may have heard about the Owlet Sock before. It’s a wearable baby monitor that attaches to your baby’s foot. We reviewed it earlier in the year and our trial team mum gave it a near-perfect score.

The Owlet Smart Sock is amazing. It’s won heaps of awards and is seriously a game-changer for new parents on its own. But, when combined with the newly announced Owlet Cam, these two products work together harmoniously offering a highly advanced baby monitoring system to relieve mum-worry.

Day and night, the Owlet system works to being your greater peace of mind – notifying you if bub’s levels fall outside of the predetermined ranges.

Keep Track of Baby's Oxygen Levels While They Sleep

The Owlet Smart Sock works by comfortably and unobtrusively wrapping around your baby’s foot. Using ‘pulse oximetry’ technology, it tracks your baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels while baby sleeps and notifies you if something is wrong. Instead of going into his room every five minutes, you can keep track of what’s happening through the app.

It also connects to a base station via Wi-Fi. When levels are all okay, the unit glows green. But if levels fall out of the predetermined range, the light glows red and makes a sound, telling you to check on bub.Owlet Smart Sock 2 Review

Check Baby's Sleep Patterns

Another great thing about the Owlet baby monitor is that it can track your baby’s sleep patterns and keep an easy eye on nap lengths and total hours rested. This nifty feature is a godsend when trying to get your baby on a decent nap and sleep schedule, especially in the blurry early days! It does the calculations for you, so you don’t have to always keep an eye on the clock when trying to settle (and re-settle) baby.

Watch From Wherever With the Owlet Cam

The Owlet Cam offers live-streaming which means you can watch your baby from your phone, no matter where you go.

It’s also great for mums who return to work. Anytime you’re missing your little munchkin, just pick up your phone and see him or her. Even though you’re not physically there, you can get your baby fix, watch what they’re up to and even chat to your baby (more on this in the next section). Knowing he or she is, in a sense, is always with you, can make returning to work a lot easier.

We all have to leave our babies once in a while, but this live-streaming feature makes it a lot easier (especially if you do have a bit of separation anxiety). Baby-free outings, such as dinners, movies, work functions are much more worry-free when you have the ability to check up on baby whenever you feel the need. Plus, dad can watch from work during the day too! My partner LOVES this feature!

Active Listening for Multi-Tasking

Many of the best baby monitors on the market offer live-streaming but what sets the Owlet Cam apart is that it also features active-listening, which means you can keep the camera going on in the background while using your phone for other tasks.

Soothe from the Other Room

Another great thing about the Owlet Cam is its two-way audio, enabling you to talk to your baby from another room. That’s right – you can shush and sing your baby to sleep from the sofa. For sleep training purposes, this is a massive bonus, especially if you’re trying to teach your baby to settle without you.

And, when baby becomes a toddler, you can tell them to put their toys away and get back into bed without even entering their room! #winning

Works Together or Separately

The Owlet Smart Sock + Cam can be used together or you can purchase each one individually. The Smart Sock offers parents true peace of mind by tracking their baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels. The app also collects historical data, which is perfect for sharing with your healthcare professional as needed.

The Owlet Cam offers video monitoring with live-streaming, two-way talk, and active listening. The Owlet Cam also comes with a room-temperature sensor, a wide-angle lens to watch a bigger portion of the room and an easy-to-install wall mounting kit to keep cords out of reach.

Both are Wi-Fi encrypted, so you know it’s a safe and secure connection and super easy to use too (even if you’re not techy).


More Than Just a Baby Monitor

But the best thing about both the Owlet Smart Sock and Cam is the true peace of mind they provide. This is something that is invaluable to new parents like me. Thanks to Owlet, now I can sleep without constantly worrying about my son, I can watch him when I’m away from him and I can teach him to self-settle from the other room. Those are three massive wins in my book!

Owlet Smart Sock 2 Review

If you worry about your baby at night, from one new mum to another, I highly suggest looking into the Owlet Smart Sock & Cam. It has stopped my constant anxiety about my son, especially at night, and helped me get more rest (in between feeds, of course). I’m sure it can do the same for you too!

The Owlet Smart Sock retails at $429.99 and is 100% worth the investment, especially if you have a newborn or are expecting one soon. The new Owlet Cam is $279.99. Both products are available on Afterpay at selected independent retailers and online through the Owlet website.
