Owlet’s latest innovations were designed to help parents, and their babies, get better sleep: Predictive Sleep Technology and the Owlet Cam 2. Predictive Sleep Technology is a completely automated sleep tool that tracks a child’s sleep and wake windows using the Owlet Dream Sock, and provides recommendations on their next ideal sleep window via the Owlet Dream App. Owlet Cam 2 is the Company’s next-generation HD video monitor, bolstering the existing 1080p HD video with new artificial intelligence and machine learning to accurately decipher sounds from the nursery and detect when little one is crying. Cam 2 provides parents with video clips of sound and movement so they can better understand their child, right from their phone.

The Owlet Dream Sock ($389 CAD), Owlet Cam 2 ($199 CAD), and Owlet Dream Duo ($499 CAD) will be sold at OwletCare.ca, Amazon, buybuyBABY, Target, Walmart, Best Buy, and other retailers.

It started with a burned-out mom trying to keep her kids entertained during lockdown. Toys would quickly lose their novelty, break or get dirty. This led to the ‘aha moment’ to turn regular foam blocks into life-sized play pieces that could transform into forts, tunnels, houses, puppet theatres and so much more. When playtime is over, the modular foam blocks fit together for use as a couch.

Whether kids want to jump, crawl, climb or slide, the 11-piece play couch lets kids personalize play by bringing their imaginations to life with new builds every day.

Washable covers and waterproof liners provide piece of mind from spills and potty-training accidents. Made in Canada with the same foam used in your family sofa, it is a toy that the whole family will enjoy for years to come.

It all started in 2016, at a mommy baby gym class and trying to nurse in a regular sports bra. Impossible. A trip to the mall then confirmed while maternity activewear existed, but it was a far cry from fashionable.

At AFTER9, we are dedicated to transforming the way we view and treat ourselves in the journey of motherhood. Our elevated design lines and fabrics are selected to push the envelope on maternity/nursing wear. The clothing shouldn’t just be about getting by, it should be about celebrating your next chapter.

More than the clothes we make, it’s also about the opportunities we create for others. We choose to manufacture our clothes in Canada, as we want our supply chain to positively contribute to the opportunities for working parents in our local economy.
