Take a look at the amazing technology that can help parents take care of their children. Reduce stress and enjoy the more fun moments of parenting with this technology.
Being a new parent is exciting, but it can also give rise to a lot of stressful moments. An increasing number of digital companies are attempting to alleviate the worries of mothers and fathers.
A rising number of new parents are turning to useful technology to assist them in the latest chapter of their lives, whether it’s having access to specialists at their fingertips or monitoring their newborns through wearable electronics.
According to a report, the worldwide baby monitor market – the largest baby-tech segment – was valued at $989 million (£707 million) in 2020 and is predicted to expand to $1.8 billion by 2028. It’s clear that this industry is thriving. Let’s look at some of the new technology and how it is helping to improve the lives of millions around the world.
Parents are frequently concerned about their children’s health, but many families’ concerns have grown this year, understandably. There have been various challenges to deal with, ranging from virus fears to ensuring other healthcare needs are met. A group of doctors has designed a new app to assist parents in gaining access to healthcare knowledge at a time when GP waiting lists are sky-high, and lines are long.
Juno is an app that connects parents with consultant paediatricians on-demand, allowing you to get medical advice for your children in minutes. So if you have any worries about your child or are unclear if a GP appointment or a trip to A&E is necessary, you may use Juno to message an on-call, GMC-registered paediatrician and receive personalised advice.
Messages are responded to by a real doctor (no robots or AI!) within 4 minutes on average. Specialists can advise on the next steps – whether it’s at-home care, a visit to the GP or hospital, or whether there’s nothing to be concerned about. You can also securely share photographs to clarify things.
Dr Lydia Yarlott, an experienced paediatrician, and Philip Mundy, a technology specialist, built the app together as a husband-and-wife team. Lydia and Philip, who are expecting their first child, were inspired to create Juno after watching how long waiting lists for GP and consultant appointments grew during the pandemic. So they collaborated with a larger group of clinicians and technologists to create a secure, effective, and safe software.
Owlet’s smart sock is the solution to parental anxiety about whether or not their baby is doing well, especially at night and during naps. This cutting-edge baby monitor keeps track of oxygen levels, heart rate, and sleep patterns. All it takes is a small sock wrapped around your baby’s foot to obtain this crucial information.
The good news is that the Owlet Smart Sock does not require a monthly subscription or a long-term commitment, but the bad news is that it comes at a high upfront cost. The Owlet is roughly $300, which is a bit costly for a baby monitor without video or audio. However, you won’t need to buy any more equipment because everything you’ll need is included in the box.
Every Owlet Smart Sock purchase also comes with the company’s 45-day Peace of Mind Guarantee. That means you can return it for a full refund if you don’t love it within the first 45 days, no questions asked. Owlet sells refurbished smart socks for around $100 less than a new set if you’re looking for a deal.
Before being sold, refurbished sensors and base stations must undergo a 13-point check. You won’t even get old socks with the refurbished package; it comes with three brand-new pairs.
Lullaai devised a 15-night strategy to empower parents by assisting them in establishing routines and understanding their children’s sleep requirements at various ages. You can enhance sleep quality for your entire family by following the plan at your own pace.
Their bedtime routines include 20 minutes of lullabies and music to help you bond with your baby before bed and create the ideal sleep environment. Lullaai then assists you with your night routine by playing lullabies and white noise. Once your baby is calm and soundly asleep, the AI starts to track your baby’s night.
Lullaai starts playing white noise when your baby wakes up to help them fall back asleep. Lula will track your baby’s nighttime activities and provide you with a detailed report in the morning. The AI learns which noises assist your infant in settling down and returning to sleep. Lullaai was founded on the belief that everyone should have access to the most incredible baby sleep advice.
Sleep debt should not impede your family’s development, according to the Lullaai team. But most importantly, Lullaai is founded on the real experiences of its creators: parents just like you!
With all of this technology at our disposal, new parents (like myself) can feel reassured by the expertise and guidance this technology brings us. Being a new parent can be the most daunting thing in the world, and if you ask any honest person, parents need all the help they can get.
