What do you think? Saw this today and thought it was... interesting. Think it will be beneficial to parents or babies? (Cant post a pic but there's a pic in the link).

It depends, if said baby is known to have breathing issues then yeah I see it a good idea but for a healthy baby that has no issues what so ever then a little much.

Even seemingly healthy babies can pass from SIDS though. I can see where it may be helpful but I wonder how practical it is

But if SIDS is gonna happen, it's gonna happen. The cause(s) behind it are unknown, so there's not much anyone can do to a solitary prevent it from taking their child.

cause one thing i have noticed the safer it is for a baby the more money it costs..look at car seats ya you can get one for $50 but if you want a safe state of the art one its going to run you around $400

It definitely could. I'm just personally wouldn't ever get something like it. I'd be worried sick all the time it was going to go off. I'd probably start to go a little crazy.

Lol. we're worried no matter what I guess. I've seen these pads you put under a mattress that do the same thing.

Yeh, I had one and hated the damn thing. Glad I was able to get some money out of it though.
