Breathing monitor and Amby

(7 Posts)

I want to get a breathing monitor (PFB!) and need one that will work with an Amby hammock.

Would the Tommee Tippee one do (saw one cheap on Friday ads) or are there other types that would work?

I use this with my Amby/moses basket/car seat - everywhere really - try ebay for the same thing but second hand. A replacement battery is around £23. I liked it better than a sleeping mat in that the Respisense actually does something if they stop breathing - it vibrates on their tummy in an effort to stimulate breathing. It also has a very loud alarm. And a flashing light. We have been very pleased with ours.

Thanks Jetli. is it right that these can't be used beyond 6 months though due to danger of twisting around?

Not heard that to be honest - although I think the SIDS risks fall somewhat after 6 months. DD is 10 months and she still wears hers albeit mostly at night now or if she
has a long daytime sleep in the car. Or do you mean not using the Amby after 6 months?

Ta. No meant the monitor - think I read that on another thread. Don't know what the evidence is though!

Mine had his monitor on in the Amby for up to 12 months, was fine
