If you follow my blog, you know about my youngest son Alex, who’s constantly battling one illness or another. You can read My Son Has Asthma to see some of our history. My most recent ordeal with Alex started this weekend. Alex started complaining of a sore throat and headache on Sunday. By Monday he had fevers reaching to about 103.8. That’s a pretty high fever! Since then, we’ve confirmed he has Epstein-Barr virus, also known as Mono. So when I was contacted by a fellow parent with an innovative product to help monitor your child’s temperature, I couldn’t wait to learn more. Let me tell you about this unique product called Baby Check that will make your life as a parent easier…
What is baby check?
Baby Check is an innovative, wearable temperature and position-monitoring device that tracks and records data about your child’s fever to any smart phone or tablet. I literally checked Alex’s temperature, probably 15 times today. Trying to remember what it was last time and how long ago I gave him the Tylenol or Motrin. I would’ve given ANYTHING to have this device and I honestly wish I had it right now.
If Alex were wearing Baby Check, I would be able to sleep in my own bed tonight and be alerted when his fever started to rise.
Even though it’s called Baby Check, this device isn’t just for infants. You can use it for young children and the product creators are hoping to offer band extensions for older children too.
The Baby Check Monitor reads and records your child’s temperature and creates a graphic trend for you. This gives parents free hands and a little sanity. Dealing with a sick kid is stressful enough, without trying to keep a manual log of their temps. With Baby Checks adjustable, medical grade fabric band made to softly hug the arm, it’s safe for extended periods of use. It’s also hypoallergenic.
• Wearable device with hospital grade fabric band (skin safe)
• Fahrenheit / Celsius settings
• Temperature notification setting
• Records movement in time to track motion and resting periods
• App displays baby’s laying or sitting position
• App “note feature” allows for medicine feedings to be recorded
• Customize each Baby Check device with your own name & photo
• 500 usage hour (approx. 1 year) on changeable battery (CR 1625)
• Automatic power off when disconnected from the app
• Bluetooth 4.0 technology (35 ft. range)
• Hands free = sanity!
How It Works
Using the most current Bluetooth technology, Baby Check requires no wires, plugs or additional equipment. All you do is simply strap the band to your child’s upper inner arm and sync it to your smart device. That’s it! One of the most unique features is the alarm that’s built into the app. You can set a max temperature and the app will notifiy you when it’s reached. So, no more sleepless nights. You can rest comfortably knowing you’ll be alerted if your child’s fever spikes in the night.
Keep Track of Fevers, Medicine Given and Feedings
Managing a sick kid can be overwhelming and remembering when his last dose of Tylenol or Motrin was given can be stressful. Baby Check offers an added feature that allows you put in notes, so you can keep track of when you gave medicine. You can also record feedings and wet diapers with infants, which is a lifesaver for parents with babies.
Within the app you can see both the ongoing fevers trended graphically and the time of medicine or feedings. This allows you to track what time you broke fever and if the medicine worked. All the data is stored, which makes it easy to show the time spread and temperature activity to your doctor.
This revolutionary parental tool even works for twins or multiple children. I can’t tell you the number of times my kids have been sick at the same time. Baby Check can sync and record multiple monitors at the same time, offering in app customization to distinguish between your loving babies or children.
Basics of the Device
When your child has recovered, simply disconnect the device from your phone. All the data will be stored in the app to show your doctor, or for personal review later. When returning to use the device, give it a shake to wake it from sleep mode (a mode created to prevent battery consumption when not in use) and Baby Check is ready to go. Messy kids, spills or sickness is not an issue as the device is completely removable allowing a quick wash of the band (wash machine safe) and its ready to use again.
The Baby Check app is available for Apple and Andriod devices.
