Nanny has a sibling, how is it different and why get one?

Nanny BM-02 has babysat hundreds of thousands of children. After years, it has finally got a sibling that is a few features smarter - the BM-03. It doesn't mean, however, that you have to abandon the BM-02. The older sibling is already a hit and has proven itself on the market, so it would be a shame to get rid of it. This article will show you how the younger BM-03 differs.

The Nanny is a certified breath monitor designed for use in healthcare facilities, but also at home. It warns in case of respiratory arrest, which can occur in children due to gagging or SIDS (Sudden Infant Death Syndrome). It also alerts you to a decrease in breathing rate by flashing and making a loud sound.

The breathing monitor consists of an electronic evaluation unit and a sensing pad with a sensitive sensor, which is placed under the mattress of the cot. Both types of breath monitors fulfil this function. In the video How a Nanny Breath Monitor is made, you can see with what care each and every breath monitor is made. For baby's safety, you now have a choice. Czech company Jablotron launches another model of the popular Nanny breath monitor. The new Nanny BM-03 builds on the reliability of the BM-02 and offers several extra features. For a better idea, we will use the analogy of mobile phones to illustrate the difference.

Different versions of mobile phones are available on the market. Basically, they are of the same quality, you can definitely make calls and send text messages with them. But then they have some extra features. So it's up to your needs whether you want to use these features or just the basics. So that's exactly the difference between the Nanny BM-02 and BM-03.

They both reliably monitor your baby's sleep. However, the BM-03 moves with the times and brings several features that enhance the comfort of use. We will now introduce them individually. The main difference is, for example, that the newer type is more sensitive and can monitor the breathing of babies weighing from 1 kg. BM-02 is designed for babies weighing from 2 kg. Both types can of course also be used for babies in incubators.

Detection of the baby's laying down

First of all, we must mention a unique feature - the detection of baby's laying down/removal. The device will alert you that you have put the baby in the crib but forgot to activate the device. Of course, the BM-03 also has the added feature of detecting when the baby is removed from the crib. Admittedly, that one sometimes gives parents heart attacks, but it's proof that the monitor works as it should - the alarm goes off when it doesn't detect movement and therefore baby's breathing. This is the feature that parents need for their restful sleep.

The bedside lamp

A practical new feature of the BM-03 is the integrated nightlight, which illuminates the front panel of the unit for 30 seconds, so you don't have to use another light source in the room to operate the baby. If you press the lamp button again within 20 seconds, you can extend the light time. You do not need to light anything in the room, if you do not press the button, the light intensity will gradually decrease.

Baby's thermal comfort

A significant innovation is the integrated temperature sensor in the evaluation unit. Overheating of the room is one of the risk factors for SIDS. The sensor operates within a comfort zone of 16.5 °C to 28 °C and flashes a light if the temperature deviates below/above these values. If the temperature is lower, the sensor flashes blue. If the temperature exceeds the limit, the indicator flashes orange. At that point, you should lower the room temperature to prevent the baby from overheating.

Day and night mode

The new Nanny BM-03 automatically recognises day or night and adjusts the intensity of the signal LEDs accordingly. They will light up with less intensity at night than during the day. This will especially please those of you who are sensitive to any light during sleep.

Two pads for one monitor

Two pads can be connected to one BM-03 monitor. The pad can be purchased separately as a spare part under the BM-03D designation, or in a convenient set. Up to about 6 months of age, it is sufficient to use one sensor pad. As soon as the baby starts to move, a second one can be added to the crib and connected to the same evaluation unit. The latter contains two sockets for connecting the pad. It does not matter in which order you connect the pads. The sockets are the same. Before it is the turn of the second pad, it can be left in the second cot at home or with another caregiver and travel with only the evaluation unit. This saves space in your luggage and you don't have to worry about forgetting the pad. Please note, if you have twins, each child needs its own evaluation unit. You cannot connect two pads in different cots to one unit!

How old is the pad

Also new is a feature that keeps track of the number of hours the monitor has been in use as an auxiliary reading. If the pad is likely to have exceeded the specified time of use, a warning beep sounds 3 times during each self-test, which is triggered whenever the unit is switched on. The shelf life is 2 years. For the determination of the expiry date, the date the pad was put into.
