So, you’re thinking of purchasing a baby breathing and movement monitor? You’ve come to the right place. There are plenty of benefits, both mental and physical, that baby breathing and movement monitors can offer to parents and babies. At Bluebell, we believe our smart baby monitor incorporates the very best in smart technology and data-based insights to provide parents with an extra pair of eyes and ears, monitoring the things that matter such as breathing, temperature, crying and even when your baby rolls onto their tummy.
So how does a baby monitor help you? You want the best for your baby and for your own peace of mind. If you have found this article, we can bet you are in the early stages of research and we are here to help with that.
Before we talk about the advantages of a baby monitor, we first need to determine…
What is the purpose of a baby monitor?
Although the recommendation is that babies under 6 months should sleep in the same room as their parents, even when they are close, having the additional benefit of monitoring temperature and tummy roll can be reassuring for parents' peace of mind. Once your little one transitions into their own room, having the monitor becomes even more beneficial as you can keep an eye on them even when they’re not so close.
Most baby monitors use sound or visuals to help keep track of your baby. The Bluebell smart baby monitor takes it one step further. Designed by doctors, our monitor helps to track more than any other monitor on the market so you worry less. As well as the HD camera and audio monitoring features, our clip-on sensor monitors your baby’s breathing, temperature and much more, supplying real time alerts to the smart wristband or the Bluebell app.
“We designed the Bluebell Baby Monitor to support parents with lots of practical, useful features that will help them day to day, offering a proactive approach to monitoring that gives parents peace of mind to enjoy those early months and continue to support them as the family grows” Dr. Naveen Sharma, Founder at Bluebell Baby Monitor.
How long should you use a baby monitor for?
Often it is recommended to use the monitor for up to anywhere between the ages of 1 to 2 years old. Some parents may choose to use this beyond the age of 2, as features such as the two way audio with the Bluebell Smart Baby Monitor you can communicate with them and keep an eye on them as they start to crawl and toddle away. It’s whenever the parent feels most comfortable. Once you start monitoring, it can be difficult to stop which is why Bluebell helps ease this transition as settings monitoring aspects are able to be switched off as your grows, features such as roll on tummy. This alert is useful when your baby is small but once they’re doing laps around the cot, you can feel confident that they can get themselves back from their tummy on their own.
What are the advantages of a baby monitor?
As well as the physical benefits such as the easy observation of your child, there are many other mental benefits a baby monitor can are. No need to stay up worrying all hours of the night, the Bluebell Smart Baby Monitor wristband vibrates with alerts so you can get a good night's rest knowing that if you are needed you can be there for your child.
Our technology also takes the pressure out of setting a routine, allowing you to track baby’s nap time, feeds, pumping as well as your own steps and sleeping patterns. This helps you to understand your baby’s natural routine, making it a little easier to anticipate what to expect next in your baby’s day.
There is also the benefit of being able to listen and to communicate with your child, so you are not running to grab them when you overhear a cry, giving peace of mind for you and your baby.
