DON’T LOSE SLEEP WHILE YOUR BABY SLEEPS
A conversation with Arturas Vaitaitis, CTO.
WHAT IS MONBABY, AND HOW DOES IT WORK?
MonBaby is a wearable breathing and rollover monitor that sends alerts to parents via their smartphones. When there’s a new baby in the house, sleep is a scarce resource for parent and baby. MonBaby helps to ease new parents’ concerns surrounding safe sleeping, in turn, helping them also get a better night’s rest.
Babies grow very fast, so we came up with a universal design—one size fits all.
WHY CREATE MONBABY?
As any parent can attest to, there is a feeling of anxiety that comes with your baby asleep in the crib. When my son was born, I constantly tiptoed in to check on him. This of course woke him up, and then we’d have to go through the whole process of getting back to sleep. Traditional audio and video monitors only go so far. MonBaby introduces proactive monitoring; helping parents follow safe sleep guidelines based on CDC and the AAP recommendations.
The button produces no sound, light, or vibration, so it won’t wake baby.
Break free from restless nights.
WHAT MAKES MONBABY SO COOL?
It’s so easy and intuitive to use. You can snap it on any piece of a baby’s clothing, just like a button. When clothes get dirty, just snap it off and onto a new outfit. The smart button measures in real-time and sends updates to the app. A graphic shows you your baby’s sleeping position in a glance, so it’s super easy to see if it’s a safe position—on his or her back. You can set which alert you want, including rollover, stoppage in breathing, fall detection, and activity alerts.
Where do we go from here?
We are actively engaged in creating a series of future smart wearables for people of all ages. Some of our work in progress includes a wearable for pets, and the MonScope, a wearable stethoscope for at-home use.
