About Danielle

Hi, I’m Danielle, mom to Theodore Remi and Charlie Lou. I love being a boy mom, and feel so blessed to be able to stay at home with them. It is truly the most challenging and rewarding job I have ever known. Every day is filled with pure chaos! They really know how to keep me on my toes and out of my comfort zone, but I wouldn’t have it any other way. They are my most precious gift.

Why Nanit?

I’ve used a few different cameras, and Nanit is by far my favorite. The quality is amazing. I also love how it allows you to monitor breathing through a wearable cotton Breathing Band.

I love the sleep Insights [from the app]. Nanit tracks babies’ sleep and offers age-appropriate tips.

I also love the stylish Floor Stand, as well as the Flex Stand for travel—it’s so easy to pop the camera off and on each stand! Nanit should be on every baby essential checklist.

What’s your top parenting tip?

Pick your battles (especially during toddler stage). You and your child will be much happier if you learn to let some things go!

How does Nanit support you as a parent? 

The sleep deprivation is real. There are no days off, and no vacations. Even if you do get a chance to get away for a trip, you’re still worrying about your children. They are always in your thoughts. I was not prepared for all the worry. Nanit gives me peace of mind with its sleep data, breathing monitoring, and sleep Insights.

Kristy Ojala is Nanit’s Digital Content Director. She spends way too much time looking at maps and weather forecasts and pictures of Devon Rex cats and no-cook dinners. A former sleep champion, she strives to share trustworthy somnabulism tips with other parents—praying for that one fine day when no tiny humans wake her up while it’s still dark out. Her kids highly recommend 3 books, approximately 600 stuffies, Chopin’s “Nocturnes,” and the Nanit Sound + Light for bedtime success.
