LEVANA® Oma™ clips directly onto baby’s diaper. The sensor will gently vibrate to help stimulate baby and will beep loudly to warn you if normal abdominal movement has stopped. Designed for your peace of mind, Oma™ is cordless, wireless and battery-powered so you can easily use it everywhere you and baby go.
Sensor Detects the Slightest Movement
Alerts You if Complete Stillness is Detected
Optional Weak or Infrequent Movement Alerts
Oma™ can also be set to detect weak and irregular movements. If abdominal movement is occurring less than 8 times per minute the movement indicator light will flash orange and a different warning tone will sound. This feature is enabled by default but can easily be disabled

Gives us Piece of Mind
We have been using this device since hours after our babies birth. She is now 9 months. It has given us piece of mind!
Gives me peace of mind
I bought this monitor when my daughter was a month old. She slept in an inclined bed due to acid reflux and we couldn't use the Angelcare monitor that we bought for her crib. Everytime I laid her down to sleep I worried. I found this product when searching for a hospital grade apnea monitor. I was willing to pay whatever I had to for peace of mind. When I found this I bought it and have have able to sleep better at night knowing that we have an extra level of protection. It doesn't alleviate all fears, and I still check her often, but it helps so much. She can wear this in any bed, at anyone's house, in her bouncy seat, etc. It has only given a false alarm twice in the 3 months I have had it. And perhaps it wasn't a false alarm, but I got to her and picked her up and she took a breath. I don't know if she was breathing the whole time or if my picking her up made her breathe, but I don't care. This monitor is worth the money in my opinion, even with a couple possible false alarms. Those couple seconds of terror are much better than the alternative.
It stays clipped to the diaper well. In a pinch, I have even stuck it on her chest (between her chest and her shirt when swaddled). As long as it stays on her chest, it works fine. It will go off if it falls underneath or gets stuck somewhere it can't feel her movement. But, it has never come off when clipped to her diaper (like you are supposed to do). I used it swaddled and not and it works fine either way. It's easy to turn on and off. The tic feature has to be turned on (it isn't on by default) which is a plus in my book. You can see the red and greens lights flashing at night through a onesie and that's reassuring.
Overall, I would definitely recommend this to anyone (and I have!).
Peace of mind
I'm a first time mom and super scared of SIDS, even with a video monitor. The Oma allows me to leave little one asleep in her bassinet without worry
Piece of Mind!
I used the Angel Care sensor pad system with my first born and dealt with stressful, false alarms. I read reviews and have since purchased this for my second. Love it. No false alarms.
Piece of mind
This monitor gives me so much piece. We place on our newborn at night it goes off in the morning ever now and again when we take off her diaper and forget to take it off so we know it works. I'd definitely recommend this
Peace of mind
I've used the Levana Oma on my daughter from birth until now (almost 6 months old). Still on the original battery, though I bought more for backup. Love how it is portable and doesn't need to be plugged into the wall. It even works with cloth diapers, and works even when she refused to sleep on her back and insisted on sleeping on her tummy. Gives great peace of mind, though there are alot of false alarms when it falls off her diaper... but I'd rather have those false alarms than none, so I know that it works! And sometimes a weird beeping, had to turn off and back on to stop it.
Love my Oma!
I bought this item a few months ago and have been extremely happy with it as it allows me to sleep a little easier as I'm not constantly checking on my little one to see if he's still breathing. It has gone off a few times.... false alarms thank goodness! Upon closer inspection, it was user error as either myself or my husband didn't properly attach it to his diaper! I'm ok with a few false alarms here and there.... as at least I know the item is working properly!
Go with another brand
I purchased this even after reading the bad reviews on it. Luckily I tried it out prior to the baby coming because it is faulty. It eats through batteries I have had 3 batteries in it within the last 3 days. So a battery a day. At one point it would not stop alarming no matter what I did. So I will be purchasing a respisence.
Gives piece of mind!
This product absolutely gave me piece of mind along with my Levana video monitor. I slept better knowing that the monitor would wake me up if he cried, but my Oma would wake me up if he didn't... SIDs is something no parent should ever have to face and with this product I felt safer and more at peace knowing I was taking extra precaution to prevent it.
Great product! Great customer service!
I bought this for my daughter when she was about 3 months old, but would have purchased it sooner had I known it existed. But I discovered it when we were transitioning to the crib and I knew I wasn't ready for her to not be in the same room as us. This product is so easy to use and gives me so much peace at night, knowing that she is okay. I too considered the Angel Care, but feel that this is much more practical since my little one moves all around the entire crib. It's also super portable (even comes with a case), so it's easy to take with you if you travel.
In the beginning I had quite a few false alarms, but I realized how to position it better and to switch to diapers with wider sides (like Huggies, Honest or Luvs), and it didn't happen anymore. Luckily in most cases the false alarms don't even wake my baby, so I could fix it without even waking her.
I didn't know this at first, but make sure you buy your replacement batteries directly from the manufacturer website, not Amazon or some other seller. I bought my replacement from Amazon and my unit died 3 days later. After going through Levana for help correcting this issue, I was told that other batteries are not tested and guaranteed like the ones that the manufacturer sells. Long story short, I was sent a new battery that still didn't work, so then I had to send in my unit to get repaired or replaced. Lillian was the customer service rep who helped me and she was absolutely wonderful! I dreaded having to go through this process to get my unit fixed because I figured they would be difficult, rude and it would take forever. My experience couldn't have further from that! They responded to my claim the next day (at the time I requested), were super friendly, very understanding, and very efficient! They made sure my problem got fixed and helped me understand everything along the way! I will recommend this product to all of my friends and family and continue to buy from them for future babies.
Nervous to use...
I just received this item as a gift. I've test it out by laying it on my leather couch and turning it on. It has taken over 20 seconds each time for the alarm to sound.... Has anyone else times theirs? I thought it was supposed to take 15 seconds. The last two tests were 23 seconds.... 8 seconds seems like a lot in a life and death situation.
This little thing gives me a piece of mind every time I put it on my baby
Decreases your worry
I recently bought this and it has saved me a lot of worry so far. Worth it just for peace of mind
This product is great! I sleep so much better at night knowing my baby is safe. It's small enough where she doesn't even know it's on her. This is a must by for any parent. I will recommend this product to all my mom friends!
Levana® strongly recommends all new parents and caregivers become familiar with infant resuscitation and call 911 immediately if baby has stopped breathing.

Only use monitor when baby is in a motionless bed/cot. Do not use in car seat, stroller, swing or other mobile carrier as motion negates the functionality of the monitor.
