The Mondevices MonBaby Smart Button is a connected baby monitor. It tracks breathing, activity and physical orientation of your child while they're sleeping.

The outer plastic ring of MonBaby detaches so you can clip it onto your child's onesie.

After clipping it on, you can orient the device so it knows whether the child is lying on their back or their belly.

The motion-sensing tech inside MonBaby also allows it to track your child's overall activity over time. The iOS app only allows realtime tracking for now, but the Android app lets you track the data over longer periods.

MonBaby is easy to attach and it stays secured to your child's clothing easily. Its motion sensing is sensitive enough to distinguish between larger movements and the micro-movements of breathing.

When the app detects a lack of motion or breathing, it sends an alarm to your phone.

You can also look at your child's activity levels anytime via the MonBaby app's dashboard.
