As we all know, technology is ever-changing, and one place I’ve definitely found that to be true is the nursery. I’m currently pregnant with my fourth child and with three months to go, I decided it was time for me to start putting together somewhere for the little one to sleep.
Now I don’t have a large age gap between my kids. Four under six is sure to be a challenge, that’s for sure. But I can tell you that even in the six years since my first son was born, the technology and gadgets available for the nursery have come so far that I’m having to Google products and reviews like a first timer.
I’m excited to be putting together a nursery for a new bub, simply because there are so many fantastic products on the market now that just didn’t exist with my other kids.
Here is a guide to the best baby-related tech gadgets that no self-respecting 2017 baby can be without.
1. Protective intelligent socks.
These smart socks from Owlet would be perfect for any parent but especially for those who may have a little one born prematurely or with some health complications.
Concerned parents get a little peace of mind using pulse oximetry (I had to look up exactly what that was), which tells parents information about their baby's heart rate and oxygen level through the use of an easy-to-wear sock.
The information is then sent to parents via smart phone technology, and should the situation arise where your child gets into trouble, a base monitor with lights and sounds alerts mum and dad to the situation.
