When I gave birth to my oldest son, I had my first experience with the sleepless nights I had heard so much about from other parents. But while part of that sleeplessness was a result of my newborn baby waking up to feed, another part of it was simple mother’s worry as I checked on my precious son to make sure that he was still safe and healthy. There is no sleep more peaceful than that of a newborn baby but every mother experiences that twinge of anxiety while her little one sleeps, and it was that anxiety that had me checking on my son over and over again while he slept to make sure he was still breathing as he slept so peacefully.
Now, Levana, a company that specializes in producing the very best baby monitors for today’s busy parents, has a solution to help a new mother breathe easier and do more knowing her baby is safe. The Oma Movement Monitor is designed to sense the regular rise and fall of a baby’s abdomen while sleeping and sound an alarm after fifteen seconds of no abdominal movement. It’s compact, easy to use and the perfect way to set a mother’s anxious mind at ease.
I received the Levana Oma Movement Monitor so that I could see for myself how the sensor worked. I loved the compact design of this little monitor. At about two inches high and one inch wide, it’s small and light enough to barely be felt. The Oma clips onto a baby’s diaper while the soft rubber top of the device rests against the stomach to sense movement. I also appreciated how easy the device was to use; simply turn on the alarm, clip it to the diaper with the top resting on baby’s stomach and relax knowing that your baby is breathing peacefully.
But what I love most about the Oma Movement Monitor is that it provides such peace of mind to a busy new parent. I can’t count the times that I tiptoed into my baby’s room to make sure that he was still safe and sleeping soundly. Worrying about him didn’t just prevent me from getting much-needed rest at night, it interrupted my days as well. With this handy little monitor, I would have had time to do more around the house knowing that my little one was safe. Personally, I would have spent the time catching up on laundry and dishes and then taking a little me-time to read and relax!
The Levana Oma Movement Monitor is available at Walmart stores across Canada for $89.99 and is a perfect gift for any mother with a newborn in the house. My sister-in-law is expecting her first child in just a few weeks and I know that the Oma Movement Monitor will make her life so much easier as she experiences the joys and anxieties of motherhood for the first time. As parents, our lives are always going to be busy but with the Oma, a parent can rest easy while baby sleeps and accomplish other jobs instead of constantly checking on her little one.
