So cute when they are asleep--but you worry

Not a parent alive has not heard of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome—the bogeyman. This is still the leading cause of death in the first year of life.

Snuza ( is a souped-up monitor. Originally the Snuza was a “halo” scanning movement.

Now, it’s a high quality video and audio device. Originally, the halo attached near the baby’s middle on the diaper and watched movement constantly. If there was none for 15 secs it vibrated to jolt the child a bit. No movement? Then an alarm went off.

The new Snuza adds audio and video to the original system. It even plays a lullaby.

Not cheap—about $330. But what price do you put on peave of mind—if this does provide some of that?

I used to just watch the kid the whole time. No wonder I was tired!

I once heard that having a child was like wearing your heart on the outside of your body—there is always worry.
