As a mom of three, one of my biggest challenges always seems to be having the ability to keep an eye on all my babies at the same time. When I was a new mom, I would always worry about the kids when they went down for a nap. Were they swaddled right; would they get sick in their sleep; would they try standing and fall back in the crib; and of course, would they wake without me hearing. All these may make me sound worrisome, but as parents, I am certain we’ve all thought like this from time to time. These concerns are easily remedied by use of a baby monitor, to keep an eye on the baby from other rooms in your home.
And it’s no secret but all three of my children share a bedroom. In order to live in NYC, these are some of the gives and takes that comes with the package. Needless to say, bedtime is the most difficult time of day for me. I try to scatter their bedtimes, so all three won’t going to down at the same time, but sometimes the day gets away from us and its bedtime for all. I know the minute I put all three down to sleep, it’s a huge mistake that I wind up regretting. Ryder and Siella usually turn into total jokesters and are completely overcome by the sillies. While I try to monitor who’s doing what, I sometimes have to rely on my vTech Safe & Sound to let me in on what’s going on. Although the older ones know there are monitors in the room, they still think I have some kind of super powers because I always know what is going on, especially with the talk back feature when I usually say things like the security is coming around to check who is sleeping or the time I rang bells into the monitor and said it was Santa Claus. The things we do!
With the latest vTECH Safe & Sound, I can watch my babies while they sleep, making sure they remain safe and comfortable. The vTech can pan, tilt, and zoom (up to 2x) as I watch my trio on the colored screen get their bedtime sillies out. Since the system can support view of up to 4 total cameras from one parent unit, I have two cameras at two different angles in the children’s bedroom, that way I can see Ryder and Siella in their bunks and Gemma in her crib and can view both in split screen mode.
It’s amazing sometimes to just watch the monitor and see all three sleeping soundly. Life is busy, and sometimes we need to stop, look, and listen to our children so we don’t miss out on the simple moments. Thank you vTech for making this moments happen!
