People will tell you that children need a lot of things, but that doesn’t really help you anticipate the astonishing realities of acquiring everything a human child needs. So let me tell you, it’s entirely possible that the year they were born my Target bill was more expensive than the twins’ stay in the NICU. However, I have also had the opportunity to experience a lot of baby technology since birth and there are many products that I have reviewed are on sale right now for Amazon Prime Day. Here are the best baby tech deals I’ve found, for everything from portable breast pumps to sleep aids.
Hatch restoration – $ 110
the Hatch restoration sound machine is on sale for $ 120 thanks to a tear-off coupon that reduces its regular price by $ 20. Hatch makes some really well-designed sleep devices. I really like my Rest and Devindra Hardawar, editor, also likes the pricer model, the Rest +. While no one has tested it directly, the Restore is the adult version of the company’s lineup. It acts as a bedside lamp, sound machine, smart light, and sleep routine aid by providing a menu of lights and sounds. It also helps you relax with an inbuilt subscription to meditations and sleep stories and can help you wake up smoothly with a sunrise alarm.
If you want something a little more children’s room friendly, I can recommend the Fisher Price Deluxe Pacifier, which has three layers of lights, including a star projector, and various white noises and lullabies to choose from. Everything is controllable and customizable from your smartphone and right now it’s $ 40.
Owl Duo – $ 279
At this moment the Owl duo package is reduced to $ 279, which is its lowest price on record. Owlet makes a smart wearable sock that can track your baby’s heart rate and oxygen level. Combined with its smart camera, it can show you a full picture of your child’s health statistics and sleep metrics. HD video stream and health metrics are displayed in the Owlet app; if your child’s rates vary, the Owlet will send alerts to your smartphone and the base station. The camera can send motion and sound alerts and provide two-way audio.
Willow Portable Breast Pump – $ 399
the Willow portable breast pump is $ 100 off for Prime Day through a tear-off coupon on the product page. This brings the final price down to $ 399, which is a record. Willow’s Portable Cordless Breast Pump sits inside a bra and works anytime you do … anything, including a downward dog. You can choose between disposable or reusable storage and track and view sessions through the app. The Willow system got a score of 83 from me when I reviewed it because I found myself waiting for it to charge instead of using my standard wired pump. Willow also sells the reusable milk containers with a 20% discount voucher.
Eufy SpaceView Baby Monitor – $ 140
Eufy SpaceView baby camera kit came down to $ 140 thanks to a $ 20 coupon that you can clip onto the product page. If you are looking for an offline baby monitor, we recommend the SpaceView for several reasons. It features a large 5 inch screen with clear 720p power, night vision, two-way sound, 330 degree pan and 110 degree tilt for a full view of the room , a 1.5 to 2x zoom and audio and motion alerts. And because it works on a closed system, there is no risk that it will be hacked through your WiFi connection. The camera itself can also be wall mounted and the screen has an eight hour battery life when left on.
Nanit Pro Complete Monitoring System – $ 279
the Nanit Pro Complete Monitoring System has fallen to $ 279 right now, which is $ 20 less than its normal price. You get the Nanit Pro Camera, Multiple Bracket, Smart Sheets (which can measure baby’s height), and Breathing Band (which measures breathing). Nanit’s baby monitoring system plays clear 1080p HD video stream to your smartphone; Since this is a bird’s eye view, you should only need to install it once using the wall bracket or floor bracket. It will send sound and motion notifications, can track sleep disturbances on video, can be turned off from your phone, and the feed can be shared with multiple people.
Pampers Snow – $ 194
The Lumi by Pampers system is ideal for parents who need a high quality video monitor and who really want sleep measurements too. the sleep tracking is a solid 50 percent off and the video monitor fell to $ 194, but they are not sold as a set. The Lumi camera is 1080p with an ultra-wide 180 degree view and night vision. It provides background sound via lock screens and other apps so you can keep an eye on your little one, and it has the Lookback feature that plays back the last twelve hours of activity. Paired with the Lumi sleep tracker, it provides a fairly comprehensive picture of your child’s sleep patterns.
Project Nursery Baby Monitor – $ 75
the Project nursery monitoring system, which includes an Alexa-enabled camera and smart speaker, is currently at 62%, bringing it down to $ 75. My colleague Daniel Cooper really enjoyed his time with the Project Nursery 5 inch HD Video Baby Monitor because of its simplicity. He did exactly what he was supposed to do: provide clean, reliable nutrition to his child’s room without any complications. However, that was in 2017 – since then the company has released a newer model that works with Alexa. In addition to using the voice assistant to check for kiddo, you can also ask Alexa to reposition the camera, record videos or photos, play lullabies, or take a temperature reading. And it has all the video monitor features you expect – high definition video, shareable stream, and two-way conversation.
