Here’s a true story that I’ve only shared with a few people. When DW was just a few days old, I couldn’t sleep straight because I would always wake up and check if he’s breathing. Yes I was paranoid but after reading about SIDS I didn’t know how else to check him.
What’s SIDS you ask? Well in a nutshell SIDS is Sudden Death Infant Syndrome. It’s the unexplained sudden death of infants without any precursors. Any baby is at risk and the symptoms as well as prevention of this syndrome have yet to be determined. To know more about this awful syndrome check out http://www.sids.org/
The lack of sleep and the constant fussing led me to put a small pillow in his bed to keep his blanket down and so that DW wouldn’t kick away his small blanket. Well guess what, he still kicked and the small pillow landed on his face. Of course this happened when I was asleep but it was most likely intuition that shook me awake and I found DW with the pillow. ON. HIS. FACE. I almost died of shock right then and there. I checked DW. He was ok. As for me, I was a mess.
That’s why when Sheryl Laudico emailed me about Snuza Go, I was able to relate to her right away. She’s a new mom who just like me before fretted and fussed over her new baby when nighttime came.
- It’s a revolutionary baby monitor that keeps track of your baby’s breathing without disrupting his sleeping patterns.
- The monitor is a device that clips over a baby’s diaper and is portable and wireless. A soft rubber flexible tip touches the baby’s tummy which monitors your baby’s movements
- If no movement is detected for 15-20 seconds (you set the interval), an alarm will go off alerting you to check on your kid.
- The Snuza monitor will also alarm if no more than 8 movements have been detected per minute.
- The monitor comes with a 12 month guarantee.
- The batteries are replaceable
- The Snuza Go retails for Php 4,989.
