Snuza Hero ~ Detect Baby’s Abdominal Movements
What is the one thing EVERY parent worries about?! Whether your baby is breathing right?! This is a major concern for many parents as you naturally worry about SIDS, Sudden Infant Death Syndrome.
I put each of my babies to sleep on their backs every night yet, some mornings they had rolled over snuggled on their tummies. I have also found them moved over to the corner of the crib with their heads right in the corners. All of these things make you worry. I can remember waking up several times a night just to check to make sure they were breathing.
The ‘back to sleep’ message had become ingrained in my parent psyche. The ‘back to sleep’ campaign was designed to reduce Sudden Infant Death Syndrome 20 years ago after studies showed that placing babies to sleep on their stomachs tripled their SIDS risk. Even though the campaign has cut the rate of SIDS in more than half from 1994 to today, it is still the leading cause of death among U.S. infants aged 1 month to 1 year, with 2,300 cases annually.
Snuza has developed a portable, easy-to-use movement baby monitor that simply attach to the baby’s diaper, it is lightweight and alerts parents/caregivers in 15 seconds if no abdominal movement is detected.** Now, I understand and all of you should also understand that this device is not a medical device. I want to make that clear.
**IMPORTANT: Snuza Hero is a baby-care aid, not a medical device. It is not intended for the diagnosis, prevention, or monitoring of a disease, injury or handicap.
The Snuza Hero is clipped onto the baby’s diaper to ensure that normal movement is maintained. Which, can give you great peace of mind. Hero detects even the slightest abdominal movement and will alert you if your baby’s movements are very weak or fall to less than 8 movements per minute.
If no abdominal movement is detected for a period of 15 seconds, Hero will gently vibrate. Often this vibration is enough to rouse the baby, and the Snuza Hero will revert to monitoring mode. After three vibration/rouse incidents, the Rouse Warning will alert you when you’re baby’s abdominal movements have stopped for 15 seconds on three occasions. If no further movement is detected for another 5 seconds, an alarm will sound to alert you.
Key Features Include
Clips onto diaper ~ No wires, cords, cables or sensor pads that could potentially harm baby.
Optional audible tick on every abdominal movement.
Made with hypo-allergenic, medical grade plastics and more importantly does not send or receive radio frequency signals.
Batteries are replaceable.
Only weights 1 oz, making it the lightest monitor on the market.
Where to Buy
Will be available at BabiesRUs in mid-March 2015.
