Every new parent wants to do what is best for their baby. With so many products on the market, it is hard to know which ones are necessities. A baby monitor can help to keep baby safe while providing peace of mind for parents. There are several types of monitors available, each with unique features.
Tip 3 – Have you thought about video? These days it is possible to pick up a monitor that will let you see and hear your baby. Although not everyone needs to see what their child is doing, the added feature of a video monitor can act as added security. Some units even offer motion sensing that will illuminate on the monitor when the child starts to move around.
Stock up on batteries but of course not for weather related events. Instead, make sure that all those Baby Monitor s in town are all powered up should you decide to visit a friend who is in the nursery way too far away from your sonic hearing device. Hanging close to a dxr 8 from infant optics seems to be extremely revealing on the soaps. Just remember not to drop a huge secret when you are close to one.
Face it: we are a society built on advertising. A new product (say, an MP3 player) comes out, and they put ads all over tv, on the radio, on billboards, in your favorite magazine. You think it’s pretty cool, but you resist the temptation because you’re still paying off your debt from school, and from the last stupid impulse purchase you made at the mall. So time goes by. You keep seeing it advertised, and one of your friends gets it. Then more and more of your friends have one. Now, about a year later, you suddenly “need” it. You can’t live without it. So you get one.
This is definitely on the “maybe” list. A lot of women swear by them, but personally I never had one and it never bothered me in the slightest. So this is going to come down to personal preference and your budget. Having said that, you will need a comfortable chair to sit in, particularly if you’re nursing your baby.
If you’re really strapped for cash, then you can probably make do with using your bed as a changing table, but if you can, this is something I highly recommend. Your back will certainly prefer it! My changing table was actually more like a set of dresser drawers, and nowadays, with the changing table part removed, it’s still being used as drawers for my daughter’s clothes. So it pays to think ahead and buy a changing table that’s practical. Also look for safety features, such as guardrails and perhaps even safety straps. And of course it needs to be well padded! It’s handy to have some sort of shelf where you can put items you’re using, but personally I just put them down one end of the changing table and changed baby at the other end. Once baby got bigger, I used the top drawer.
There are a wide range of baby video monitors out there, with different degrees of quality, features and prices. Philips and Angelcare are other brands that manufacture great baby video monitors as well. These are just a few to get you started to find the perfect baby video monitor for you.
