More than just a baby monitor: Onni Care
Why settle for just a normal baby monitor with distracted sound when you can get HD video from your baby?
The Onni Care’s motitor will track your baby’s sleep. The app will alert for example when your baby is moving around, so you can be there for your baby before she/he wakes up.
You can use these monitors also with older children for example watching their plays while you’re cooking.
Otometri points out ear infection
Fever, sniffle, cough, pain in the ears. Is it an ear infection or just a common cold? With the Otometri measurement device, you can easily check your baby’s ear condition at home. The device sends tiny acoustical stimulus to ear and then the device will analyze the response. If the ear is infected, there is fluid in the middle ear, which will cause a different response than a normal ear.
In the studies, the device has been able to detect inflammation with 70-90% accuracy, just as well as a pediatrician.
Use Mehujehu and prevent the juice box becoming a sprinkler
Every kid will get excited when seeing a juice box: give it to me! When the straw has been put in place, the tiny hands finally get the juice. They will grab the juice box with a tight grip and at the same time approximately 70% of the juice ends up on the floor. The typical combination is grape juice or orange juice and a white shirt at a birthday party.
The case called Mehujehu (only in Finnish) will keep the straw tightly in place and prevent the package getting smashed. The case also looks nice!
