The best in baby monitors and baby sleep products

The best baby monitors and baby sleep products, according to Ovia parents.

What are the Ovia Family Awards?

Each year, we ask Ovia parents to vote for their favorite family products, including the items that help both parents and babies catch those much needed zzzs — yes, we’re talking baby monitors, crib mattresses, and sound machines.

This year, we collected 40,000 votes and thousands of thoughtful recommendations from parents to find the best-of-the-best, tried-and-true products worthy of an Ovia Family Award. When you see the Ovia Family Award seal, you know the product you’re buying was selected by parents who’ve used it, trust it, and can genuinely recommend it to other families.

  • Best baby health monitor
  • Best crib mattress
  • Best sound machine

Best video monitor brand: Infant Optics DXR-8 Video Baby Monitor 

Infant Optics is an Ovia Family Award Winner two years in a row and it’s not hard to see why.

The Infant Optics experience is one that makes it feel like you’re in the room with baby. Want to hear more about why Ovia parents love Infant Optics?

Here it straight from the source

“Works great and you can hook up a second camera to it. Had it for two years and it’s still working perfectly. Their customer service is excellent too – anytime I’ve reached out, they promptly respond and always solve my problem!”

“It just ran through my washing machine and is still working after 2.5 years and a wash trip!”

“No wifi or apps. Peace of mind and security.”

Best baby health monitor: Owlet Smart Sock 3 & Cam Bundle

For the last two years, Ovia parents have (overwhelmingly) voted Owlet as their favorite baby health monitor and commented on how it’s improved their own sleep, knowing baby is safe and sound. 

Here’s what Ovia parents are saying

“The owlet sock is a must have! It allowed me to monitor my baby’s heart rate and oxygen throughout the night. It also tracked how long baby slept for and how often he stirred or woke up; which gave me an idea of his sleep quality.”

“The Owlet Sock was by far my #1 must have baby product! I did not sleep prior to using it. The peace of mind it brought was well worth the money spent on it.”

“As a mom of a preemie who spent a significant amount of time in the NICU, this bundle gave me piece of mind bringing her home. When used correctly (read all the instructions about placement), it will help you snooze on those off chances baby let’s you. The ability to link the video monitor and sock to your phone is super convenient.”

Best crib mattress: Graco Premium Foam Crib & Toddler Bed Mattress Mattress in a Box

Best sound machine: Hatch Rest Sound Machine, Night Light & Time-to-Rise

Ovia parents love the Hatch for the whole family. It grows with your child, providing a wide range of programs for midnight feeding sessions all the way through school wake ups. Change Hatch’s color, sound, and volume until you find the program that’s right for you.

Here’s what Ovia parents are saying

“Our number one baby product! We’ve been using it since we received it as a baby shower gift. We live on a busy street with loud traffic, and this drowns out the noise. We all sleep better with this white noise machine!”

“Toddlers love this! You can program color changes and sounds to cue them when it is time for nap or bedtime, and when it is time to get up to play! Helped with the transition from crib to toddler bed for our daughter!”

“Best sound machine! So many options and it’s great for them as they get older. Love being able to control it from my phone.”
