How to Put Owlet Sock On

Step 1: Choose the right size and side of the sock

Your Owlet sock kit comes with four fabric socks, two for the left foot and two for the right foot. Each sock has a different size and color, and a label that indicates the size and the side. The sizes are based on the weight and age of your baby, as shown in the table below:

Table

SizeColorWeightAge
1Mint Green6-12 lbs0-4 months
2Light Pink12-25 lbs4-18 months
3Dark Blue25-30 lbs18-36 months
4Lavender30-40 lbs36-48 months

Choose the sock that fits your baby’s foot best, and make sure it matches the side of the foot you want to use. You can use either the left or the right foot, but the sensor should be placed on the sole, below the ball. If you use the left foot, the sensor should be on the bottom of the foot. If you use the right foot, the sensor should be on the top of the foot.

Step 2: Insert the sensor into the sock

The sensor is the white plastic part that contains the electronics and the lights. It is attached to a cord that connects to the base station. To insert the sensor into the sock, follow these steps:

  • Hold the sock with the sensor facing outward and the strap facing upward.
  • Gently slide the sensor into the sock, narrow end first.
  • Make sure the sensor is tucked inside the sock, and the cord is not twisted or tangled.
  • You should be able to see the two lights through the vinyl windows on the sock.

Step 3: Put the sock on your baby’s foot

To put the sock on your baby’s foot, follow these steps:

  • Hold the sock with the sensor facing outward and the strap facing upward.
  • Gently slide the sock onto your baby’s foot, ensuring that the sensor is positioned on the sole, right below the ball.
  • The sock should fit snugly but not too tightly on your baby’s foot. You should be able to fit one finger between the sock and your baby’s ankle.
  • The strap should wrap around your baby’s ankle and be secure with the velcro. The strap should not overlap beyond the base velcro, which may cause the sock to slip off or cut off the circulation.
  • The cord should run along the back of your baby’s leg and attach to the base station. The cord should not be too loose or too tight, as this may cause the sock to move or pull on your baby’s foot.

Step 4: Check the sock placement and fit

To check the sock placement and fit, follow these steps:

Step 5: Let your baby sleep and monitor the readings

Once the sock is on and working, you can let your baby sleep and monitor the readings on the app on your phone. The app will show you the live heart rate and oxygen level of your baby, as well as the battery level and the connection status of the sock. The app will also alert you if there are any issues with the sock or the readings.

You can also adjust the settings and preferences of the sock and the app, such as the volume, the brightness, the notifications, and the sensitivity. You can also access the history and the trends of your baby’s sleep and health data.
