Tummy Sleeper with Angelcare Monitor?

Anyone tried the Angelcare Monitor for a tummy sleeper. DS is 4 weeks and I have put him on his tummy next to me on the couch to calm down and he LOVES it. He is outgrowing the swaddle and breaks himself free most of the time. Just wondering if anyone used the Angelcare monitor and let their newborns sleep on their tummy?

Re: Tummy Sleeper with Angelcare Monitor?

We had the Angelcare monitor and I would sometimes let DS sleep on his tummy, once he learned to roll over (4 months) he always slept on his tummy. When he was in the NICU after he was born and hooked up to all of the monitors the nurses put him to sleep on his belly. I figured if they did it, I could too.

Agreed! This is the only device that gave me piece of mind and allowed me to get some rest too!! We also allowed our DD to sleep on her tummy once she could roll there herself.

Loved, loved, loved my AngelCare monitor! That thing is the only reason I could sleep peacefully with DS in his own room. We kept it on until we converted his bed to a toddler bed for his 2nd birthday.

Re: Tummy Sleeper with Angelcare Monitor?

i've never used the angelcare monitor but my middle child was a preemie and came home on an apnea monitor and I have to say that it truly was wonderful. Yeah it was a ginormous PITA to carry around constantly but at night or when I put her in her basinette to shower, I KNEW she was breathing. And truly it was a very real threat that she would forget to breathe. It happened all the time. In the car she would forget, deep in sleep in teh middle of the night she would forget, etc. And there was only one time she needed help remembering to breathe. Usually the monitor woke her up. I don't know how loud the angelcare is but our monitor was a piercing shriek that sounded every second until she self-corrected or we silenced it and it was wake-the-neighbors loud. No joke. The first beep would wake you from REM sleep. But it was wonderful peace of mind to let her sleep on her belly the way they placed her in the nicu and the way she was used to.

DS2 also had an apnea monitor so I totally can relate to the piercing shriek.. its like a fire alarm! He had his until 10.5 months mainly because his Dr KNEW that thing was like my security blanket. I watched my child turn blue way too many times too be able to actually sleep without the monitor. He now as a pulse oximeter that sounds if his heartrate or oxygen saturations drop, but its not nearly as loud.

It was a PITA but I felt so much better having the apnea monitor.. I have no experience with the angelcare monitor though.

But anyways, yes I did let DS sleep on his belly with the monitor. But he also had laryngotracheomalacia so it was much easier for him to breathe on his belly.

DS2 would only sleep on his tummy, so I used the Angelcare Monitor and felt fine with it.

Re: Tummy Sleeper with Angelcare Monitor?

Same here. It was the best thing I ever got for my baby. We both get sleep becuase I can relax. I have never had a "false" alarm (knock on wood) short of me forgetting to turn it off when I take him out.
