Baby J has decided he’s a tummy sleeper, sleeping on his back lasts about 5 minutes and then erupts into a fit of fidgets, wails, and eventually screams. It’s not very nice watching such a small baby being so distressed. Thing is if you settle him on his front, he’s out like a light.
Sleeping on the front is a ‘No-No’ according to the midwives and healthcare professionals, despite my generation being put to sleep on their tummies! For a bit of reassurance that little man is still okay, we’ve invested in the Nanny Breathing Monitor. At £75 it’s not cheap, but the peace of mind it offers is priceless. It’s carries complete CE registration as a medical device, so it’s a decent ‘Medical Grade’ unit. It has one of the largest sensor pads (50cm x 30cm approx) of a device of this type and works with mattresses up to 14cm thick. You can also buy an additional sensor pad so if your baby is a ‘wriggler’ you can have more of the cot covered.
J is still small and therefore is in his Moses basket, and the sensor pad fits nicely into the base under the thin mattress.
It’s a doddle to set up, put 2xAA batteries into the Alarm Unit, connect the Sensor Pad with the cable to the Alarm Unit, place the Sensor Pad under the mattress, fix the Alarm Unit somewhere safe and you’re done! Then you just pop little one in and switch the unit on.
