We all know there is no manual for raising a child, although it would be enormously handy if there was. It’s easy to fall into the trap of being a helicopter parent, checking on your child every five minutes. However, in 2017 you don’t have to rely on your instincts as much as you would have done ten years ago and that’s thanks to the number of gadgets on the market to help you in your parenting journey. Motorola have introduced their innovative Smart Nursery range which is a collection of six new products to make your baby’s nursery the most intelligent and connected nursery possible.
This range is a family of gadgets that work together or on their own. Each item operates through the Hubble Connected app and can track sleeping patterns, monitor the nursery’s environmental conditions, send you alerts when something is amiss and much more. You can then track the data collected on a daily, weekly or monthly basis to get a good understanding of your baby’s needs and the environment in which they are spending the most time.
These products going to be widely available and are in shops such as Amazon , Babies R Us, Boots, John Lewis, and Mamas & Pappas.
