This pacifier looks like most of its low-tech counterparts, but it has special powers. The Pacif-I connects via Bluetooth to a smartphone or tablet, allowing you to read baby’s temperature without using an obtrusive thermometer. The system can also be used to locate a lost pacifier, as the accompanying software makes it possible to determine when the paci has traveled outside its preset boundaries. What parent hasn’t spent a considerable amount of time crouched on the floor, looking for stray pacifiers under cribs and changing tables?
Rockers from 4moms are not new to the market, but the updated mamaRoo has an added feature not seen before in their luxury baby soothers. You can use your smartphone to control the settings on the high-tech mamaroo rocker, saving you the trouble of lifting your weary body and walking over to the rocker. It’s not outrageous to think that most parents would select the rocker’s settings after securing baby in the cozy cradle, but the mobile connectivity also allows parents to change the sound settings, should baby decide that he would rather hear the rhythmic wub-nub of a heartbeat, instead of gentle rainforest sounds.
Infant sleep is perhaps the most mysterious topic of them all. When it comes to figuring out how to help your little one sleep, the variables are almost endless. A wearable band collects data on your sleeping baby, including body temperature, heart rate, movement, and position. The charger also captures ambient temperature in the room, light levels, sound, and humidity. All of this data gets fed into a smartphone app and analyzed to determine optimal sleep conditions. For new parents of a baby who has difficulty sleeping, that’s basically magic.
Temp Traq is an adhesive patch that acts as a wearable, wireless thermometer. It uses Bluetooth technology to report temperature readings from baby to your smartphone. Why? The concept allows the temperature tracking sticker to be activated and then work continuously for 24 hours. This means that you can place it on an ill child, and monitor their temperature periodically without having to disturb or wake them. This one isn’t for sale yet; Temp-traq is currently awaiting FDA review so they can go into production.
