Hubby works at a tech startup and is a huge lover of anything gadget-y and tech-y. We can unlock all our doors with our iPhones and all the lights in our home can be turned off/on/different colors with our phones as well. And of course, we also have the Nest thermostat – what tech lover doesn’t have one? As soon I as I found out I was pregnant, I knew I could count on my husband to find all the coolest/latest gadgets for baby.
So I really can’t say that I was surprised when he sent me an email with a link to a smart onesie that can monitor baby’s breathing, activity level, temperature, and even allows you to listen to your baby. It’s called The Mimo Baby and is made buy a company called Rest Devices.
You can find more information at http://mimobaby.com/
Doesn’t it look adorable? Currently, The Mimo Baby can only be bought at Babies R Us and retails for $199.99.
Most parents might find this to be a little steep but for peace of mind and a little extra sleep, I’m thinking it might be worth it. Hubby had a younger sister who died from SIDS and he was only a young toddler when he found her unresponsive in her crib. I know that he worries and researches baby monitors for this exact reason. We are still in the research process, so not 100% sold on this onesie, but it is definitely now in the running! If we do end up getting it, I will be sure to post a lengthy review as I have not seen many independent reviews out there.
