Baby tech should let everyone sleep

Baby tech should let everyone sleep

The range of baby technology now available is astonishing. You can load up with a smart sock, smart diapers, smart pacifier, phone connected scales (doppler, ultrasound...), Nespresso for formula, a cry translator and of course a wide range of ultra-sensitive, night-vision stalking, shrieking / vibrating baby monitoring systems.

But all this innovation is mostly being wasted on paranoid first time parents who need to obsessively check that everything is OK every five seconds (not judging, have been there).

What I need is a baby monitor that does one thing: wait a minute per month of age and see if there is still a problem. Stay silent until this threshold is passed.

As usual, billionaire investor readers please call me.

Get seed funding for this idea and I will join you and build it. The hardware design will not present a problem. The software might be a tad more tricky, as you would have to have wifi enabled and a companion app for at a minimum iOS and android.

I have a sleep monitoring phone app + alarm that rings when I'm closer to awake than asleep. Theoretically the concepts are similar. Do it!
