Kids can wander off — and while they might just be having some fun, new parents can quickly panic.

Now BeLuvv is developing the $25 Guardian accessory to ensure no panic is necessary: the wearable waterproof device sends parents a notification the instant a child goes beyond a custom-set distance.

The Guardian can also tie into what BeLuvv calls its “crowd-guarding network”  that it says will “turn every place into a safe playground for children.” Anyone who installs the app on their mobile device becomes part of  the “expansive and secure crowd-sourced platform to search for and pinpoint lost children.”

Don’t drop this cam

Dropcam

There are a lot of “baby cams” on the market, offering many ways to keep watch over your child when you are out of the room. One great choice was first designed as a general-purpose surveillance camera, not a parental device — and so it may deliver more features at a less boutique-y price.

The Dropcam is a $150 HD-resolution camera that sends a WiFi signal you can see and hear on your smartphone, or over the Web on a computer.

Bedtime Baby beside you
,

snuzpod 3The safest place for your baby to sleep for the first 6 months is in their own sleeping area beside your bed, according to the Royal College of Midwifes — and so Little Green Sheep in the UK is offering “a safe alternative to bed-sharing: The SnuzPod bedside crib.”

The 3-in-1 design combines a bedside crib for a safe and easy night’s sleep; a stand-alone crib for the nursery later; and a removable rocking bassinet that can be used around the home.  “The SnuzPod provides your baby with their own safe sleeping space and the right support to match their needs,” the company says, “reducing the risks of bed-sharing and fear of smothering whilst still keeping your baby close.”
