Owlet Smart Sock 2

 

 

I am so so excited to share the most amazing baby product with you guys! Its straight outta the future! Its the Owlet Smart Sock 2!  Heaven sent for all moms of newborns. It doesn’t matter how many babies I have. Bringing home a newborn is the scariest most anxiety inducing thing ever! I guarantee I’m not the only parent who spends the first few nights at home sneaking out of bed to make sure your baby is still breathing.

Since we started using the Owlet smart sock 2 I can check on her and make sure her oxygen levels and heart rate are normal in real time right from my smart phone. So I stay nice and cozy in bed!

My favorite is when it says “Amelia is wiggling” even though it can’t get a great reading when she is moving and works best when she is sleeping. The thought of her wiggling makes me smile. Wiggly babies are so dang cute!!

If your not familiar with what the owlet sock does It goes on your babes cute tiny foot and it is designed to notify you if your little ones heart rate or oxygen levels fall outside of the preset zones. It uses similar technology as a hospital monitor. Just simplified for the home user. If the levels do go outside the presets it is designed to alert you with the base AND the owlet app on your smart phone. It plays rock a bye baby, its pretty cute. It is honestly the coolest and I’m so grateful for this type of technology! I am a highly anxious person especially about my babies and this gives me such peace of mind.

This version of the sock is brand new and very much improved

A few of the updated features:
• Improved bluetooth range, up to a 12x increase (100 feet), between the Smart Sock and Base Station
• Innovative new sock design, offering a more secure fit
• Easier, more intuitive sock placement, meaning fewer false notifications due to more accurate sensor placement
• Enhanced smartphone app for improved user experience
• Advancements in firmware and hardware to reduce false notifications
• Updated fabric sock can be worn on both feet, allowing parents to alternate as needed, as well as breathable toes through all sock sizes

This product is a serious game changer! I loose lots of sleep worrying about SIDS the owlet monitor is up all night so I don’t have to be.

The smart sock is $299 but the peace of mind is seriously priceless! Available to purchase at owletcare.com

Date Night with Larry H. Miller Lexus + GIVEAWAY!

I was approached by Larry H. Miller Lexus of Lindon for a collaboration. They wanted to let us choose a car and send Todd and sponsor date night for us! Say what?? YES PLEASE! I know very little about cars so I was actually really excited to learn more about the Lexus brand and the Lindon dealership. Ever since sweet Millie came along we haven’t hardly left the house let alone had a date night!

I let Todd choose the car he chose the 2017 ES 350. You guys…. this car is NUTS! So incredibly nice! Way nicer than any car we have owned! A few of my fav things were The gray leather interior, the smell of the gray leather interior (AMAZING!), when you drift out of your lane the steering wheel vibrates to alert you, When it started to lightly rain the windshield wipers came on automatically! My most favorite thing of all was how there was no goldfish cracker smashed into the carpet! haha After driving in that car it has inspired me to go my my car detailed!

My Mom came over to babysit the girls and Todd and I ran away for the night! We seriously had the best date! We went to city creek and I accidentally bought a few things(oops) Then we had dinner at The Melting Pot. The dessert is soo amazing!! It was so weird without the kids with us! We could chat without getting interrupted every 2 seconds! We talked about how on earth you would balance having a secret second family. ( haha I have no idea why) Then we talked about the 5 love languages Todd had no idea what they were so we both learned a lot! Talk to your hubby about it so you can both feel more loved!
