@vandentillart I love the idea behind this product, could you tell us a bit more about how the technology works? And how the swathe captures the parent's scent? 👶🏼

@vandentillaart hey @abadesi, thanks for your interest! Our Heartbeat device records a parent's or caretaker's personal heart rate with a fingertip sensor. Our algorithm translates it into an audible sound and vibration that can be played back when a baby goes back into the crib. The organic all natural textiles take on the scent by wearing it during Kangaroo Care (skin-to-skin cuddling moments). So it's super simple and easy. If you would like to know more about Kangaroo Care you can get our guide here: Cheers!
