Aside from crying, babies aren’t great at providing feedback when they need something. And, small children don’t always want to tell you what’s wrong.

Let’s look at some of the best IoT products for kids.

According to research, 80% of all car seats are fitted incorrectly. Unless you get someone to fit it for you, how do you know the installation went well?

The 4moms Self-Installing Car Seat checks the tension and levels according to your car, before verifying it’s safe to use. After installation, its twenty sensors monitor its status and send error alerts to your phone.

Plus, the car seat not only meets current safety standards, but it also meets the proposed standard for side impact protection. With its steel reinforcing and aluminum crash bars, you can drive safely in the knowledge your child is cocooned in a bubble of protection.

It’s even certified for use on your air travel plans.

2. Fever Scout Wearable Thermometer

The IoT is great at providing wearables for monitoring a range of health issues. The Fever Scout Wearable Thermometer extends the capabilities of the IoT to children. Taking the form of a soft, flexible patch, your child won’t realize they’re wearing it.

Here’s a video showing how to use the Fever Scout.

 

It takes the temperature once per minute, sending data to the app on your device. You can view the data as a graph to get a better sense of your child’s changing temperature. Or track the temperature to watch your little one improve.

It comes with a charging dock that doubles as a BLE relay. That means you can monitor your child from up to 130ft away.

Getting children to brush their teeth can be a challenge. Why not turn it into a game using the Kolibree Smart Toothbrush?

It features rounded bristles so children won’t scratch their gums. Its sonic action removes more plaque.

If you’re curious about good brushing habits, you can always play yourself!

4. MonBaby Smart Button

How often do you check on your baby when she’s asleep? The MonBaby checks on your baby for you, sending updates to your phone so you don’t need to disturb her. You can monitor her breathing and body position while the button also detects potential falls.

Stomach sleeping may carry a greater risk of SIDS so get instant alerts when your baby rolls onto her stomach.

Unlike other monitoring products which involve smart onesies, the MonBaby smart button snaps on and off whatever your baby is wearing. It’s easy to swap clothing if she makes a mess.

Here’s a video about how the MonBaby works.
