Peace of mind.. It’s what every parent wants when it comes to the safety of their child. When my first baby was an infant, she slept in my room, right next to me, and I STILL woke up every hour to check on her. With so many sad SIDS stories, and the fear of something going wrong at night, I had a hard time taking my infant out of my room. When she was 6 months old, I finally felt that she could be moved to her crib. I watched her each night from the camera, but the picture wasn’t clear and I couldn’t see if she was breathing. At that time, it was one of the best we could purchase. Many times throughout the night I would make my way into her room to make sure she was okay, despite having a baby monitor.
With my new baby, I find myself leaving her in her crib more often. My toddler is a little rough with her, so I feel that the safest place for her right now is in the crib. When meals have to be made or laundry has to get washed, I have to have the option of watching my baby to make sure she is safe in her crib. The VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor is my best tool when my infant is in her bed. When she is sleeping, I can actually zoom in and check to make sure her belly is rising and falling- something I could never do with my old monitor. Other great features of the VTech Safe & Sound monitor are the talk back feature and the lullabies. If I’m in the basement doing laundry, I can talk through my end of the monitor and reassure my baby that I will be right up to take care of her. If she’s happily playing in her crib, the Safe & Sound baby monitor plays lullabies to keep her company.
With Baby Safety Month in full swing, it is a great time to think about what concerns you have as a parent when it comes to the safety of your child. Check out the VTech Baby Safety Month Survey results to compare your thoughts with others!
