    Default Wearable Monitors

    Hi Everyone,


    One of the difficulties our little one has is choking on his own saliva so I'm really worried about him going in his own room at night. I'm bad enough when he's sleeping right next to me.


    I've found a new device online called a Neebo, which is like a wearable baby monitor so it would be with him all the time, but it would let me know instantly if he stopped breathing or even if he was awake but not making a noise: http://daatrics.com/neebo.html


    What do you guys think? Do any of you have experience of similar monitors?

    I use a Snuza Hero on my baby, clips to the nappy and besides alerting us if he stops breathing it also vibrates to try and rouse him. Love it and it helps ease my anxiety so much so that I can get some sleep.

    Thank you, that's really good to know. I'd seen reviews of that one but was worried about the potential for it falling off the nappy and how comfy it would be, especially as we tend to end up co-sleeping for the second part of the night. Whereabouts on the nappy do you put it?

    It goes just on the front of the nappy. The clip is pretty sturdy, I can't imagine it would fall off without some pulling at it. I've not known anyone to have an issue. As for comfort, I don't think bub notices it. The top of it just rest on the tummy. I had one for DS but rarely used it as he was a rotten sleeper so I was always up with him or right next to him. I will be using it for Dd when she is born though. I think they are brilliant because they can be used anywhere.

    I used the Snuza Hero for my daughter too. She was a tummy sleeper which is what prompted me to get it. It never fell off and never seemed to bother her, even though she was lying on it.
    The only problem I had was it going off occasionally when she was just in a very deep sleep. I found it happened more when she was getting sick. I took her to a paediatric sleep and respiratory specialist who reassured me it was just normal for her and nothing to worry about.
    The panic you feel when it goes off is awful, but the extra peace of mind was worth it

    We use the snuzza too it's fallen off a couple of times, or this morning at 5am, but overall it's really good. It sometimes irritates dd's tummy, but she is prone to getting a rash quite easily. Love it for the peace of mind.

    If you fold the nappy a bit and place it so the rubber is on the belly button then it's fine. I've only had trouble with it getting knocked when ds1 started moving but I have friends who have never had issues, even when their babies move around. To be fair, I tend to put it to the side of the belly button which I know means it gets knocked more (that's me and some weird phobia of belly buttons being touched) if you place it where it's meant to go you should be fine. I also tend to clip it to his leggings rather than nappy so I can take it on and off easily. Ds2 is only 9 weeks so doing it that way is fine for now. When ds1 started moving heaps around 7 months, I started only using the breathing mats under his cot and just saved the Snuza for traveling.

    That's why I started popping it on his leggings, when it's really hot he tends to get a little rash where the rubber is but if the temp outside is cooler it's fine.
