Safe To Sleep and Breathing Baby Monitor Features

Breathing Monitor Functionality

Safe To Sleep is the first to offer a system with the ability to monitor your baby’s breathing rate and alert you to any breathing patterns. This functionality is as accurate as a hospital grade monitor. Using their patented waterproof and antimicrobial sleeping surface – the SleepMat pad – this system uses advanced fiber optic technology to sense any irregularities in your baby’s breathing rate. It begins monitoring this the moment you lay your baby on top of the SleepMat. Then, the BreathTrend feature takes in all the breathing problems and alerts your smartphone or the remote parent unit. Which means if they stop breathing, breathe slower or faster or if they wake up you will be prepared and notified. There has never been a baby monitor feature as powerful or attentive as the one offered by Safe to Sleep with this product.

Breath-Scope Mode

The above description isn’t even the full extent of this monitor’s capabilities to alert you to your baby’s breathing. BreathScope is a mode that also displays the breathing rate and portrays them in waves. This will give a real-time data compared with the regular timings of your newborn as they sleep. This data is relayed to your smartphone in real time.
Now, with just a glance at your iPhone or Android, you can tell whether or not your baby is breathing safely in real time. This not only is a powerful option to give you more information as to how sound your newborn is sleeping, but the added convenience of the included smartphone app is a welcome addition that brings peace of mind and is much more intuitive to use. Now with parents can have some moments to themselves.

Sleep-Log Option

Real-time data is always helpful, but it’s also wise to track your baby’s sleeping patterns over an extended period. This is where the SleepLog option comes in with the golden torch. This is like a running record of your baby’s sleep patterns. It keeps track of every second your baby is awake as well as every second they’re asleep. This function then takes this data and generates reports on their total sleep time. It further calculates and lets you know how much of the sleep was R.E.M., deep sleep. This can tell you how much of a good night’s sleep your baby had last night. This record is not just numbers but will become a weather report you will religiously follow. Why? With this record, you can predict if they’re going to be cranky today based on how long they had high-quality sleep the previous evening.

Smartphone Functionality

Most baby monitors come with a camera or microphone unit and a video monitor or speaker unit to give you audio and video information. Whereas components coming with this model are the SleepMat and a remote monitoring unit attached to it. You may think this makes it inconvenient, but Safe to Sleep is designed to make your lives better and it is fully integrated in order to work with a powerful computing device you already have in your pocket, cellular smartphone. This monitor comes with an app that you can download onto your iPhone or Android smartphone. From here on, you can access the BreathScope, BreathTrend and SleepLog feature and read this data on your phone in real time. It can even be downloaded onto your tablet as well. And a parent unit also works in the same way as the smartphone app for those who don’t have one.

Ease of Use Design

Even with so fewer components, this unit is more convenient than many baby monitors. There are no wires or radio frequencies you need to protect this model from. It works on a rechargeable battery, is totally wireless and extremely portable and lightweight. The SleepMat is only about 4 pounds by itself, so it’s no trouble to take with you as you travel. Plus, there’s no extra camera or wall mounting set-up needed. You just place the SleepMat under your baby just over the cot, connect the SleepMat to your Smartphone’s mobile data or home Wi-Fi (or to the remote parent unit if you’re not using a smartphone) and open the app or turn the parent unit on to start receiving data from the SleepMat. Once You set up you are good to go.

What I Liked about this Product
  • Compatible with Smartphones
  • Monitors Breathing and Sleeping patterns
  • Lightweight and portable
  • Easy Set-up
  • Hospital -grade accuracy

  • Unable to be paired with more than one device
  • Alarm notifications disappear after a few seconds
  • No video or audio capability


Q1.Can you monitor multiple SleepMats with one iPhone?
A.No, but the app can store different stats to the different units it’s connected to.

Q2.So this means you can connect your smartphone to more than one Sleep mat?
A.Yes, but you can’t monitor them all simultaneously.

Q3.How do you pause monitoring for feeding or diapers changes?
A.Click on the power button once, and the alarms will stop.

Final Verdict

The ability to monitor your baby’s sleep and breathing patterns remotely are powerful enough. The added bonus to doing all this on your smartphone makes Safe to Sleep’s model one of the most advanced baby monitors on the market. It would be nice if it came with a camera and microphone to give you real-time video and audio capability. But for parents who value the kind of concrete medical data that is a better indicator of how well your baby is sleeping, these are sacrifices you will most definitely be willing to make. The product is highly recommended for parents who value real-time medical data over mere audio and video responses. The data received is usually helpful for the doctors to understand the babies better as well.
