Today I’m really excited to share about a new baby monitor I’m using – the Miku Smart Baby Monitor! There are so many different kinds of baby monitors out there so I’m going to share a full Miku Baby Monitor review to help you know if it’s right for you.
You may be familiar with the Miku after Kim Kardashian posted it. She got 3 for her kids and I can totally undersatnd why! This is a top notch baby monitor that is so high tech with all the bells and whistles.
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 (which you can find on Amazon) 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.
Miles now sleeps in his own room now that he’s sleeping through the night and also does the bulk of his naps in his room when we’re not out and about.
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.
I even have used it when I’m not home! I was at the grocery store one evening and needed to ask Rishi a question. He didn’t answer and I knew it was around the time Miles goes to bed so I checked the Miku app. Sure enough there was Rishi putting Miles down for bed! I was amazed at how clear the photo was even miles away.
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.
One thing I love is that I can get alerts on my Apple Watch. It alerts me at times when Miles wakes up or starts crying which really helps when I’m playing with my older kids!
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.
Thanks for reading!
