Baby movement monitors are important baby care devices that should be utilized by every family, especially in households with children below one year of age. Doing so will provide the crucial monitoring young babies need so that they are protected from the sinister crib killer SIDS.
But if you’ve done your research already, then you’re probably finding it a little difficult to choose as there are tons of brands available right now. We’ll discuss three of the most sought-after baby movement monitors here to help you choose.
Snuza Halo is the first in the line of baby care devices from the manufacturer Biosentronics. The apparatus has been designed with mobile baby movement monitoring in mind. Snuza Halo is a mere 30 grams in weight. It is also small enough that it can be clipped into the diaper waistband without obstructing baby’s breathing and overall movement.
Snuza Halo’s placement right around baby’s abdominal area ensures that all the rise and fall of baby’s tummy and chest areas, no matter how slight or subtle, are detected. Such a positioning makes the device the most ideal choice for when baby needs to share a crib or cot with other siblings as well. Since Snuza Halo is positioned where the breathing movements are concentrated, the chances of false alarms are practically ruled out.
Snuza Halo is perhaps the ONLY device of its kind which is equipped with the vibrating stimulus. This function automatically kicks in to wake baby up when no movement is detected within a period of 15 seconds. So not only will you get a device that alerts you when your child stops moving, but one that will attempt to rouse baby to prod him or her to breathe. Read more…
