It’s a known fact that first time parents need help and many can agree that when their first baby comes along they have no idea what they’re doing. If you’re lucky, you’ll have mom around to help you out and help you sleep, which is so important. Now there are many products that can help first time mother’s sleep better and monitor their child’s movements, sleeping pattern, and track everything in real time through an app in their smartphone, but is it safe?ThinkstockPhotos-460687989

The age of technology and ease has forced many parents to jump on the technology bandwagon because it makes life so much easier! There are onesies that have embedded sensors into the fabric; these Bluetooth devices transmit the data to an app. Now you can track if your baby turns, if he rolls over, and when he’s awake. Parents can track how many hours the baby sleeps and when, so they’re able to sleep better themselves without having to worry about the baby as much.

There are also smart diapers, which are disposable diapers that have a chemically treated tab on the front that changes color based on the bacteria, electrolyte, and pH levels of the baby’s urine. Parents can virtually connect the diapers to their smartphones and help identify health issues like urinary tract infections or even diabetes.
