Today I’m really excited to share about a new baby monitor I’m using – the Miku Smart Baby Monitor!
I’ve had my eye on all of the baby monitors that monitor breathing after Penelope was born. It wasn’t until after I became a mom that I realized just how much I stressed about my babies when they slept! If they happened to take extra long naps I would go in their rooms to peek on them and see if they were still breathing. It sounds crazy but it true!
Penelope got RSV at just 2 months old and her breathing was really affected her breathing. I didn’t want her to sleep anywhere that I couldn’t see her because it’s freaked me out so bad.
Miku Smart Baby Monitor
Fast forward to the birth of Miles. My friend, Colt (co-founder of Miku), reached out to see if I wanted to try out a Miku baby monitor. I had actually been watching some of the videos about it so I was really excited for the opportunity to try it with Miles.
The Miku has military-grade technology that detects your baby’s breathing without wearing anything. It simply detects it through the camera.
We received the monitor in the mail and first of all, let me tell you , they’ve thought of everything! In the box is a screwdriver (you don’t even need a drill to mount it!), a level and absolutely everything you could need to install your monitor.
Rishi’s in charge of all things related to our walls (installing wallpaper, hanging monitors, etc) so he set it all up. He told me it was super easy to set up (and no, he’s not Mr. Handyman!).
*Note: if you don’t have drywall walls and have something else like concrete, brick, plaster or sheetrock you’ll need to use a drill.
Rather than a physical monitor for the parent, you simply need to download an app.
The app is full of amazing features. It shows you the room temperature, the humidity and of course, your baby’s breathing rpms. It also shows activity, movement, sound and both sleeping and breathing patterns. One of my favorite features is that it shows you trends for the day/week. You can look back and see how many naps they took, how long they were and what the sleep quality was like.
Currently Miles is in our room overnight, but we do most of his naps in his crib when we’re home. This helps to make sure he is used to it when we transition him to the crib for overnight. I love being able to check the app to see when I laid him down so I know how long he’s been sleeping and quickly checking in on him while I’m working or playing with the kids and see his breathing.
You need to have your phone in a state where you can see and hear your baby. You can’t have it in airplane mode or Do Not Disturb.
Miku houses a high security Crypto Chip so data remains secure, a feature unique to Miku.
I love our Miku! I am super impressed with the quality of the video, enjoy being able to quickly check in on Miles whenever I want to ensure he’s sleeping soundly and love the peace of mind it gives me.
