The Sleep & Breathing Baby Monitor by SafeToSleep® (http://www.SafeToSleep.com), the only home baby monitor to continuously monitor the breathing of a sleeping baby as a defense against unexpected infant death, has been named as one of the “Best & Hottest Nursery Products from Pregnancy to Preschool” by the product experts at MetroMoms. The MetroMoms testing team reviews thousands of baby products each year and judges them on factors such as innovation, safety, durability, and peace of mind. The MetroMoms team awarded the SafeToSleep baby monitor its highest honor, adding the system to an elite list of nursery must-have products. The Sleep and Breathing monitor was featured in a highly-anticipated segment on KTXD-TV in a special roundup of breakthrough products for new and expecting parents. The full segment can be viewed at http://www.ktxdtv.com/story/22899328/nursery-must-haves.
The only baby monitor of its kind, the Sleep and Breathing Monitor from SafeToSleep utilizes state-of-the-art fiber optic technology to sense a baby's breath rate and relay the data to a smartphone or tablet in real time. The system continuously analyzes a baby’s breathing pattern and will alert parents if the baby begins breathing too slow, too fast, or if the baby stops breathing altogether. The smartphone app includes digital features that generate reports on a baby’s total sleep time and sleep quality, allowing parents and doctors to care for babies in ways that have never before been possible. The patented technology has been hospital tested and clinically validated to be as accurate as the wired cardiorespiratory monitors used in pediatric units around the world.
“We are thrilled that the experts at MetroMoms have named SafeToSleep to their elite list of nursery must-have products for 2013,” said Dr. Ryan Santangelo, Co-Founder of SafeToSleep. “As MetroMoms pointed out, being able to monitor a baby’s breathing is a massive breakthrough in infant sleep safety. The SafeToSleep is the first line of defense against unexpected infant death and it is making a difference in the lives of families around the world. Having direct experience with infant death, we are so humbled to be helping families in this way.”
