LAS VEGAS (KYW Newsradio) — New parents can get some downtime without all the worry, thanks to new innovations that can keep a close eye on an infant, as some of the products being shown off at the annual CES tech show in Las Vegas show. 

Smarts come to the crib with a waterproof mat and sensor from Sleepace. The Smart Sleep Sensor for Babies monitor a child's heart and respiratory rate and body movement. 

If the little one makes an escape or stops breathing, an alarm alerts the parents or care takers. 

It's expected to be released this spring.

Motorola's Halo+ baby monitor surrounds a camera with a glowing ring. It looks down on the crib, and you see your kid on a portable screen; they see a light show projected on the ceiling and hear soothing sounds like lullabies or your voice. Using the Hubble Connected platform, CNET says the Comfort Cloud cushion tracks heartbeat, breathing, and a baby's sleep cycle.
