Safe To Sleep Sleep and Breathing Baby Monitor (Discontinued by Manufacturer)
- The first system to monitor the breath rate of your sleeping baby and alert you of dangerous breathing patterns. It's the safest way to put your baby to sleep. Clinically validated to be as accurate as hospital monitors.
- The SleepMat is a comfortable sleep surface that is waterproof and anti-microbial. Inside the SleepMat is advanced fiber optic technology that is used as the sensing mechanism. Just lay your baby on the SleepMat and begin monitoring instantly.
- BreathTrend is a feature that watches for breathing problems and sends alerts to your smartphone or the remote parent unit. Alerts include: (1) No Breathing, (2) Slow Breathing, (3) Rapid Breathing, (4) Baby Awake, and (5) Baby off SleepMat.
- BreathScope is a feature that displays the breath rate and breath wave of your sleeping baby. The breathing information is sent to your smartphone in real time. You will always know at a glance that your baby is breathing safely.
- SleepLog is like a sleep diary for your baby. SleepLog tracks every second your baby is awake, and every second your baby is asleep. SleepLog then takes that information and generates reports on your baby's total sleep time and sleep quality.

Note: I didn't use the Parent Unit remote. I only used the iOS app (v1.07) with my iPad. If you want to know what it's like using just the Parent Unit remote, check out lilber23's review.
The mat works: It provides your baby's breaths per minute, whether or not your baby is awake or asleep, as well as the mat's temperature, whether or not the baby left the mat, and so on.
The mat is safer than competing products like Angel Care. Angel Care's products are wired and there have been cases of death in the past.
The mat is waterproof and its cover is machine washable.
Easy iOS App Setup: If you know how to install a new iPhone / iPad app, as well as pairing your iPhone / iPad to a BlueTooth device like a headset, setup is simple. Just turn on the Safe to Sleep mat (you'll see the blinking green light). On your iPhone, go to 'Settings'. Under 'Settings', tap the BlueTooth setting. Just make sure BlueTooth is on, and wait until you see the Safe to Sleep mat pop up under 'Devices'. Once it pops up, tap it to connect. Now install the Safe to Sleep iOS app and you're done. (If you happened to install and start the iOS app first before pairing your iOS device to the mat, just restart the iOS app and it should work fine.) Setup is not as Unix describes, a random "phone dance". This is where the reviewer Unix loses all credibility.Read more ›
There are four alarms on this monitor. Two different alarms tell you if your baby is breathing too fast or too slow, one alarm tells you if your baby is awake, and one tells you if your baby has rolled off the mat. I don't know about your newborn, but our baby's breathing varies greatly from short little huffs to actual pauses. The alarms would go off constantly through the night as our baby's breath briefly slowed, paused, or sped up. We frantically called our pediatrician the next morning, and she assured us that this is quite normal.
The next alarm goes off if your baby is awake. Newborns are in and out of deep sleep, but it doesn't necessarily mean they are awake. The "awake" alarm would go off when our baby was just transitioning in and out of deep sleep...thus keeping US awake all night.
The last alarm has to do with the baby rolling off the mat. There's one thing I'll say about this, and that is the mat is extremely small. Your baby has to actually be on top of the mat in order for it to work. It's perfect for a newborn if you can squeeze it into your bassinet (it's rectangular so we had to jar it into our oval bassinet). As the baby grows and transitions into her crib, I can't imagine her being able to fit or stay on the tiny mat. This monitor is really expensive to last only the first couple of months, especially when SIDS is a risk for several more months.
We need a monitor mainly because we are concerned about SIDS. The other features on this product intrigued us...Read more ›
At this point, after dozens of false alarms, we're wanting to return this junk... but wait... it gets better...

2.2 Product Returns
2.2.1 You may return any SafeToSleep product at any time up until the 30th day after their receipt on the strict condition that the product has not been removed from its original packaging and that this packaging has not been damaged (unless the product is defective).
Are they for real? So the only reason you would be able to return this product is for defective reasons... none else. The only other way? Looking at the box and not opening it to see if it actually WORKS... Because if you did... you would realized it was a scam in a box. But no sir, no returns after that!
First of all, I love the flexibility - you can place the mat anywhere it will fit - bassinet at night, crib during the day, pack n play while traveling, etc. It is small and lightweight.
The features are great - obviously having the rate of breathing is the biggest draw but it is nice to have the movement monitor, noise activated speaker, the ability to talk thru to the baby, play music and be able monitor the temperature of the room all from the one device.
When our little guy was first born, he was (and still is) very squirmy. He could roll himself right off the side of the mat even when swaddled. I contacted the company and got a speedy response. They suggested turning the mat sideways so baby is lying perpendicular to the mat. So long as any part of the torso is on the sleepmat the system will pick up the breathing. I no longer swaddle him but still use the sleepmat sideways and have not had any issues.
We have not have any false alarms, however, as one person posted, our newborn's breathing was also somewhat erratic and he would have periods where it was almost like he was holding his breath and would then start breathing more rapidly (normal for a newborn per our MD) and the monitor did beep a couple of times for that reason when he was much younger. This did not bother me though because I would rather be safe than sorry with a product that is sensitive enough to pick up these episodes than one that is not and could potentially miss a life threatening apnea event. As he has gotten older (he is now 2 months) we have not had this happen again.
I like the flexibility of being able to use either the parent unit or iPhone for monitoring.Read more ›
