Worry No More Thanks to the Kiddo


Being a parent is a full-time job in and of itself.  With work, commuting, household chores, AND parenting, it’s no wonder that parents and caregivers are physically and emotionally exhausted. When you add in health and well-being concerns to the equation… it’s almost more than one can handle.  Enter the Kiddo.

The Kiddo

What is the Kiddo?

The Kiddo is a unique health and wellness wearable designed just for kids. It tracks their key vitals (temperature, heart rate, perspiration, motion), offering insight into a child’s wellbeing, including sleep and stress, and provides peace of mind to parents via access to data and actionable insights focused on their child’s health.

The Kiddo came into existence after CJ Swammy’s son became ill.  Normally a very active and healthy child, he developed heat exhaustion:  with a high fever and dehydration.   Because he was just 4 at the time, he wasn’t able to easily express how he felt. Right then and there,  CJ knew that there must be something that could help alert adults to the health needs of the little ones in their lives.

CJ and co-founder,  Jean Rintoul,  joined forces and formed the company, Good Parents Inc.  The result is the Kiddo. The fun and empowering wellness tracker made just for young kids. Unlock your child’s full potential.

That is super cool! It’s about time that kids got their own fitness trackers. I think this could also be used for an early heads up on if the kids are getting sick.

This is pretty handy to have especially during the summer. I like that it can track so much.

I love this invention because I worked at a preschool with a child who would get sudden fevers that would spike way too high too fast. It was a race against the clock to try and get a hold of a parent to come and get him the care he needed. This would be perfect for them!

What an interesting idea! My teenager loves her fitness tracker but this looks better for a small child!

Nice to see some technology that helps quite a bit. I know that this must calm the hearts of parents who have children who have to deal with medical issues, but still want to get out and play. It will also keep parents from having to hover as much as they do when they are worriers!
