Baby Breathing Monitors have been one of the big advances in Baby Monitor Technology in the last couple of years. The technology behind the new must-have items has been in use in maternity wards and baby clinics across the UK for some time, however it is now making its way into Nurseries across the country from monitoring movement to breathing, and even your baby’s heart rate & oxygen levels.
How do baby breathing monitors work?
They basically are a type of baby monitors with a breathing mat that are in contact with your baby's body and help you feel reassured that your little one is getting a safe night’s sleep.
Sleep apnea, or Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS), is one of the leading causes of death in babies under 12 months old, and this type of monitors can help prevent SIDS. Baby Breathing Sensor Monitors are the first line of defence to reduce the risk for your child against such things happening whilst your baby is sleeping. As soon as your baby’s breathing becomes abnormal, your Baby Breathing Monitor will alert you with a loud alarm that lifesaving action is needed. And this is how the risk of SIDS is reduced.
Utilising a large sensor pad that is placed under the baby’s mattress in the cot, Baby Movement Monitors constantly monitor the baby’s breathing, checking for any slowing or stoppages in breathing. If there are any abnormalities, the monitor will give a real time alert to make you aware of the difficulties your child may be having.
Baby Breathing Monitors are available at a range of prices, ensuring there is one for every budget. The question begs however, am I endangering my child’s life by buying a cheap monitor to get a false sense of security? Generally speaking, most breathing and movement monitors are well regulated, but you should always read reviews and the experience of others first for self-assurance in keeping your baby safe.
