"Nod" App Unveiled at Consumer Electronics Showcase in Las Vegas

BOSTON, Jan. 5, 2017 - Rest Devices, Inc., makers of the Mimo Baby Monitor and a global leader in infant sleep monitoring, today announced a collaboration with Johnson & Johnson Consumer Inc. to develop the first smart, personal baby sleep coaching system. The app, called Nod, will be unveiled today at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas. While the app will not be fully available until early next month, parents can sign up on the site www.nodtosleep.com to be part of the upcoming beta program.

"Parents often turn to books, web resources, or expensive sleep coaches to find the right sleep training techniques

Here’s the truth: When I walk through the door after work, I run right past my husband -- the man I chose to procreate with in the first place -- and straight to our four-month-old rolling around on his playmat. I shower my baby boy with kisses and coo “how was your day, cutie pie? Did you have a good day? Mommy missed you so much!” Meanwhile, my husband, who is currently on paternity leave, smiles at us sweetly but I barely notice.

When we found out we were expecting last year, I was elated. I fell even more in love with my husband, the only person in this world I wanted to start a family with. I also became a little obsessed with making sure we were working on our marriage and communication, especially as we forged ahead growing our family. My mentality has always been that it’s important to have a strong partnership with the person you choose to raise your children with, not only because it sets a good example for your kids, I think, but because it helps keep you sane. My mother was a single parent, who did an amazing job raising her

Before my son JB was born a few months ago, breastfeeding was something I knew I wanted to do -- I had read about the pretty stellar benefits, and, hey, free food for the baby. It wasn’t until I left the hospital exhausted and with nipples so shredded I can’t believe they didn’t fall off that I began to realize how intense nursing is. Each week brought new breastfeeding challenges -- just when I thought I had finally mastered it, a new roadblock would pop up and throw me completely off course. And then, after almost four months of maternity leave and breastfeeding exclusively, I went back to work, plagued with guilt over taking my boobs away from JB and anxiety about keeping up my supply.

Now, during the weekdays, my double electric pump is my new best friend. We have breakfast, lunch, and an afternoon snack together every single day. And while I’m really lucky to work at an awesome baby tech company with supportive colleagues who aren’t weirded out by my milk chilling in bottles next to their lunches in our company refrigerator, pumping at work is not always breeze.

This Sunday gives us the chance to appreciate and celebrate our fathers. A day dedicated to the men that have been there since day one. There are many ways Dads impact the lives of their kids: role models, motivators, protectors, life guides and best friends. Today we celebrate Rob Conway of Boston, MA, a man at the beginning of his parenting journey offering a unique style of fathership.

Dad to both Luke (4 years) and Liam (3), Rob grew up in Coleraine, Northern Ireland before moving to the US with his wife. A passionate and articulate Irishman, Rob is an example of the modern day “stay at home dad”, balancing school runs, after school sports practices & trips to the library with the demands of coaching the successful Boston College Men’s Rugby program.

As a rugby coach Rob is seen as a fierce tactician, leader and competitor. However away from this, a great relaxant is his love for drawing. Having met Rob through rugby, it was a pleasant surprise when he began to share some of his pieces on social media. These compositions were not related to rugby at all, no stock standard drawings of players in the heat

Inside The Crib Join Us Inside The Crib!

As the Boston winter melted away and our strollers started rolling into the spring sunshine, we here at Mimo HQ started to think of a unique approach to engage with you, our valued community.

We thought of a community rooted in what makes parenting real. Sleep is hard to find, you don't connect with your partner like you used to, and you're madly in love with your baby - most of the time. The ups are way up, and the downs are way down. And we aim to share that journey with you.

Inside The Crib will be with you every step of the way, with tips from infant sleep experts, exclusive discounts and contests, and bite-sized content for your 2am feedings. And over time, as we learn more about what you love and hate, we'll tailor the content we send, just for you.

Inside The Crib will also bring you inside the world of Mimo. You'll be the first to learn about new products, new retail partnerships, and new launches. As we launch new features in beta, you'll be the first to know, and the first to test.

We all know what's inside the crib: it's what matters to
