When I got pregnant with Gabbie, I immediately purchased the book “What To Expect When You’re Expecting”. It is like the bible of pregnancy and have very, very useful information. The book also precisely described my first trimester particularly my pregnancy symptoms (all of which were written I experienced). The book also stated that there is such a thing as SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome) sadly, the cause of it is unknown and any baby can actually experience it. The thought lingered on my mind knowing that after nine months of ups and downs of carrying my baby, SIDS could just take her away and I can’t do anything about it.
So when I gave birth to Gabbie I was one of the many pranny goose (paranoid) moms who wake up at least every five minutes to check if the baby was still breathing. I remember I’d put the glass cover of G’s thermometer under her nose to check if there’s moisture from her breathing and I’d also put my hand on her tummy to check if there’s movement. Call me weird and crazy but I bet most moms did the same when their kids were between 2 weeks and 12 months old.
Luckily, for the new moms out there there’s an innovative product that can help you monitor your babies breathing and movement.
Say hello to Snuza Baby Movement Monitors
There are at least 5 key features of Snuza which I love:
1. Detects even the slightest movement of your baby.
2. Alerts you if your baby’s movements are very weak or fall to less then 8 movements per minute.
3. It is small and portable. You can use it whenever the baby’s sleeping in a non-moving environment (since it detects the slightest movement of the baby, it might be best if you not use it when baby’s sleeping on his stroller or inside a moving vehicle).
4. Safe and easy to use. There are no wires nor bulgy pieces that can come into contact and irritate your baby’s skin. It also has a safety on/off feature making it hard for babies to tinker with. Plus the clip on design makes it easy to attach/detach the product to & from your baby’s diaper.
5. Snuza monitors come with a 24-month limited guarantee and a 12 month warranty on the battery.
Snuza Halo has a vibrate feature that will go on if there’s no movement detected for 15 minutes. Halo will vibrate gently to help nudge your baby if s/he suddenly stops breathing.
Snuza Halo retails for P6,189.00
Snuza Go provides the same mobility and ease-of-use as Halo but does not incorporate the rousing vibration function.
Snuza Go retails for P4,989.00
Sisters Sheryl & Aileen of Momhattan Corp. the official distributors of Snuza walk us through the product.
A demo of how to put on a Snuza on a baby.
This product would actually give parents a relatively good night’s sleep and of course peace of mind, knowing that their baby’s monitored while sleeping.
It was lovely meeting these inspiring ladies!
