How do we know if the new breathing monitor is working properly?

  1. Install Nanny in the cot according to the instruction manual.
  2. Insert the batteries, which are part of the package in the monitoring unit.
  3. Switch on the breathing monitor.
  4. Each time it is turned on, the unit conducts an automatic functionality test - all lights will flash briefly and the monitor beeps.
  5. Ideally, test the sensor pad with the baby. Place the baby in the cot and see how the green light flashes. This signals that everything is OK.
  6. Leave the breathing monitor switched on and take the baby out. Don’t touch the cot, the device could sense your movements and your breath.
  7. The light will continue to flash green for a little while, until movements subside.
  8. After approximately twenty seconds, the red light will come on and the alarm will be triggered.
  9. Turn off the breathing monitor with the switch.
