From tracking ovulation to baby development, Moms introduce technology to our parenting repertoire as soon as it proves worthwhile. Covering CES 2017 in Las Vegas, many exhibitors impressed me with the latest tech tools and gadgets designed to help parents be more adaptive, intuitive, and responsive to our babies’ needs.

Here are a couple of my favorite products: 

Willow Breast Pump

As Moms look for ways to keep breastfeeding as long as they can, they first have to get past some inherent hurdles. Now, Willow takes care of a big obstacle by designing a wearable breast pump that Moms can place inside of their bra – freeing up their hands, thanks to no cords, dangling bottles, or external tubes. Discreetly tucked inside the bra, this pump works quietly while Mom goes about her day, tracking milk volume via smartphone app.

Owlet Smart Sock

As parents, we want to do everything we can to keep our baby safe – especially at night when we can’t always keep a watchful eye. The Owlet Smart Sock by Owlet Baby Care fits over baby’s foot and uses pulse oximetry to ensure that heart and oxygen rates stay at safe levels while baby sleeps – and sends an alert to Mom or Dad’s smartphone if they don’t.
