Onesie That Tells You What Your Baby Is Feeling Is a New Mom's Dream

Wouldn't it be absolutely amazing to know what your baby is thinking and feeling at any given point during the day? Imagine if instead of sitting on your sofa for hours on end trying to figure out what each and every single different cry means -- you could actually predict your baby's mood and know exactly what he wants. Sounds like a dream come true that only exists in a science-fiction movie, right?

Well, if you've got some extra cash lying around, you may be able to literally buy a window into your baby's emotions, feelings, and needs. No, I'm not kidding. The "Emobaby garment" is a sensor suit that measures your baby's movement, moisture, and skin temperature, giving you a good indication of your little one's physical and mental state so that you can better anticipate his needs. Best. Invention. EVER.


The garment basically looks like an ordinary onesie, and aside from the fact that it has hidden sensors in it to monitor your baby's physical state, it acts like a normal baby outfit too. It's made of cotton and is even washable and hypoallergenic. How cool is that? Oh yeah -- it also comes in pink and blue, making it the perfect baby shower gift. Of course, it does cost between $1,000 and $2,500 depending on which model you choose, so it is a bit extravagant. But other than that, we all want one. Especially me -- and I don't even have a baby.

Seriously -- where in the heck was this thing when I had my son six years ago? I can remember staring at him while he was wailing and seemed inconsolable and saying, "I just wish that I knew what you wanted!" It's the most helpless and frustrating feeling as a new parent when you don't have the slightest clue as to how to soothe your baby. And while $1,000 or more is pretty pricey, I definitely would have considered purchasing the Emobaby. Because it probably would've saved me about the same amount of money in boxes of tissues and tubes of waterproof mascara.

Would you pay thousands of dollars in exchange for knowing what your baby is feeling?
