Baby Tech

baby monitor is now considered to be an essential purchase by many parents with around 80% of Mums buying them. Advances in technology mean that today's monitors are compact, reliable and often packed with features.

Many models of baby monitor are made by the big telecom companies and for many reasons, many independent retailers are wary of dealing with them, but there is still a wide choice of monitors suitable for even the smallest retailer. 

These days, baby monitors are more than devices for listening to the sounds a baby makes. Those with video are now very popular – and no longer an expensive luxury. Some can record video of baby for keeping for posterity, linking up to smartphones and laptops via wifi. 

Many of those with the latter features are popular with parents who are often away from home – how lovely to take a break from work and have a peek at baby! 

Monitors can also keep a watch on the room temperature, alerting parents if it goes outside a set range. Some allow a mum to talk back to baby; some have receivers that mum or dad can wear on their wrist. Some can even detect a smile! 

Momsense is a monitor that can measure how much milk a breast fed baby has consumed – something that can take away a lot of the stress around breast feeding. 

Reassurance monitors monitor the movements baby makes when he is breathing and sound an alarm if he stops for more than a pre-set time (usually about 20s) which for many parents can be very reassuring. We all have had the urge to get out of our nice warm bed and check that baby is still alive! Most work by having a sensitive pressure mat underneath the mattress which picks up the slight breathing movements. However, there are possible instances where baby could stop breathing but the monitor would not detect it e.g. If baby were choking. Secondly, there are going to be false alarms. All babies have periods when they naturally stop breathing for what can seem quite an age before resuming. If baby is not on a monitor then no one is any the wiser. But if baby is being monitored, the alarm will go off. This does not mean however that the monitor has prevented a cot death!

There are many exciting developments on the horizon in baby monitoring (some driven by the need to monitor the elderly!) so watch this space!

After years of extensive scientific research, begun in 2008, Momsense present their ground-breaking technology to the UK market. The patented Momsense technology is designed to provide mum with real-time knowledge of their baby's milk intake.

Whilst the NHS “Baby Friendly Initiative” has proved successful in increasing uptake rates of breastfeeding in Hospitals to over 80%, just two months after returning home, only 20% of these mums are still breastfeeding. Mums face many challenges with breastfeeding but one of their main concerns is whether their baby is feeding enough. Momsense is designed to help prolong the breastfeeding experience for Mums by keeping them fully informed about how much their baby is feeding and confident in the knowledge their baby is satisfied.

The technology allow the Momsense monitor to accurately interpret the complex physiology of a baby’s swallowing measuring the amount a baby feeds with an accuracy of +/- 95%. The monitor work in conjunction with a smartphone app delivering a real time log of feeding events and amounts baby has fed. Listening via the Momsense earphones (included) to baby’s feeding can also help in the bonding process for Mums, Dads and siblings.
