Monitoring Your Baby's Health

Genecord Support

New parents know how tricky it can be to make sure that babies have everything they need. One day your little one will be old enough to talk and can tell you just what is wrong, whether it is a too-cold room or a tummy ache. But while your little one is still too small to tell you how he's feeling, there are lots of handy gadgets to help you monitor the health and well-being of your baby.

Gro Egg

Babies cannot regulate their own temperatures, and overheating can have serious consequences. Gro Egg offers "peace of mind at a glance." This  innovative thermometer
lights up with colors that change as the temperature fluctuates, letting you know with a soft glow that the room is either too hot, too cold, or just right. This allows you to maintain a safe sleeping environment for your baby without having to constantly check the thermostat.


In addition to monitoring the temperature of a room at a glance, you can also check the temperature of your baby at a glance. Babyglow produces a temperature-monitoring bodysuit. The bodysuit changes color to indicate when your baby is too warm or possibly running a fever, alerting you to the need to take his temperature or change out his bedding for warmer or cooler covers.


Hisense makes technology to protect against sudden infant death syndrome. Their Babysense breathing monitor uses sensor pads placed under the mattress to detect the slight movement of breathing. The monitor provides an immediate alert if the baby's breathing slows to a dangerously low rate or stops altogether, allowing you to take immediate action.


Tedi is a toy in a league of its own. This teddy bear has a built-in monitoring system that measures your baby's development along with stats like pulse, cry time, grip, and temperature. Parents can sync Tedi's info-gathering sensors with an app that lets them track and record the baby's vital and developmental data. This data can then be accessed from your smartphone or tablet, putting the details of your child's health and growth at your fingertips.

Parenting is a tricky business, especially when it comes to ensuring the health and safety of your baby. Luckily, this technological age offers many solutions to help you monitor your baby's well-being and alert you when serious issues arise so that you can keep your loved ones safe and happy.
