At the time, Jack was 21 weeks old. He was acting very ill but we saw a doctor who said he was fine. When Jack went to sleep that night, something didn't feel right, so I spent most of the night watching his vitals on my phone in the app. Jack had never gone below 97% on his oxygen, but he was now dipping into the low 90s while asleep.
The next morning, I began to work from home on my laptop (Jack wasn't going to daycare sick) when I received the first ever red notification from the base station. I jumped up to pick up my baby and check him over to make sure he was okay. Jack’s lethargy, as well as his worsening symptoms, promoted my husband to take Jack to the nurse triage at his pediatrician’s office. They monitored his oxygen for a bit and found out he had a fever. We made an appointment to see Jack's actual pediatrician later that morning.
It turned out Jack was going through a second bout of RSV and other cold problems. Because of this situation and some chest x-rays, we now see a pediatric pulmonary specialist. We discovered Jack's RSV was more severe than originally thought (he had a 3rd occurrence this month), and even though he is now better, he still has mild airway narrowing that has to be monitored. Hopefully, we'll see an improvement in the coming months, and we can avoid respiratory problems like asthma.
We are genuinely grateful for our Owlet notifying us and allowing us to determine the help my son needed. With his airways working to improve, I feel calm every evening I put my son to bed with his Owlet sock on. I recommend this product to every new parent I know!
