#7 – Owlet Baby Smart Sock
Back in the day, our parents just put us to sleep and did a check now and then. So the Owlet Baby Smart Sock may be overkill in the baby safety gadgets department, but if you’re a techy (or a worrier) this could be helpful.
The smart sock allows parents to monitor things such as their baby’s heart rate and oxygen levels. Each unit includes 3 washable socks that comfortably wrap around the baby’s foot and connect to a base station up to 100 ft. away using a wireless connection. It also connects to your phone via an app and has a 45-day refund.
#8 – Baby Electronic Nail Trimmer
Babies typically hate having their nails clipped. Many parents hate doing it for fear of clipping the child’s tender skin. This product safely files down the baby’s nails so that nail clippers can be avoided altogether — at least for now.
#9 – Polar Fleece Infant Car Seat Cover
Oftentimes, it can take the car a few minutes to heat up. So, this cover helps keep your baby warm while the car is warming up. There are multiple color options and it fits in most carriers. It may not be one of the high-tech baby safety gadgets but it’s a good buy nonetheless.
#10 – Baby Crawling Knee Pads
Don’t laugh. Or roll your eyes. Some babies are super crawlers, which is great because crawling is really important to a child’s growth and development. But all that crawling can hurt their knees, even if you only have them on carpeted floors. That’s why these baby crawling knee pads are perfect for protecting kids in their crawling phase.
#11 – Vaporizer with Night-Light
Vaporizers and night-lights are great devices on their own, but combined they make an awesome gadget. This two-in-one device can keep your baby healthier, and help them sleep easier by adding moisture to the air.
#12 – Pacifier/Thermometer
This creative piece of baby technology allows you to take your baby’s temperature without them knowing it. Oftentimes, it can be very difficult to take a baby’s temperature with a traditional thermometer because they won’t let you put anything in their mouth. The pacifier/thermometer solves that problem with aplomb.
