PEACE OF MIND
It's a lot easier when you know your little one is safe and sound.
When Simone, now 4, was a baby I was dead set against a video monitor. I feared I would be letting my new mommy fears get the best of me, obsessively checking on her every second of the night. So we got a mediocre regular baby monitor and made do.
Then at 3, Simone started having seizures in her sleep. Once at nap time at preschool and 3 at home during the night. It was terrifying. She slept with us for months afterwards and every time she moved I panicked, thinking she was having a seizure. Thankfully she has been seizure free since November (*knock on wood!*), but I still worry. I worry that she is having small seizures at night that don't wake her (or us) up. Her neurologist thinks this is pretty unlikely, but I'm a Mom; I am pre-programmed to worry, right??
So when I got the Motorola Video Baby Monitor (MBP41) I was really excited and relieved.
The Motorola MBP41 Wireless Video Baby Monitor offers everything you
need to keep a close eye on baby. Its digital technology gives you peace
of mind knowing that its signal is secure, so others can't eavesdrop.
The 2.8" full-color LCD screen has convenient pan, tilt and zoom
functionality and infrared night vision for keeping an eye on things,
even in very low-light conditions. With everything that Motorola's MBP41
has to offer, you're free to watch your little one dream.
The set up was incredibly easy. I put the battery in and plugged it in, done! The camera (baby unit) comes pre-programmed to the parent unit so you don't have to worry about codes or anything.
The camera has some really awesome features! It MOVES, which is really cool. You use the arrows on the parent unit to pan around so you can see your little one no matter where they are in the room. You can even buy additional cameras for other rooms, all viewable through the one parent unit.
I put the camera (baby unit) on Simone's dresser next to her bed. It was nap time and I wanted to check to see if she was REALLY sleeping.
She wasn't. See those little feet jumping on the bed?? Oy.
Then I remembered the Parent Unit has a two-way communication feature, so I pushed the button and told her she could read a book if she wasn't sleepy.
She did that for a while. Then she was quiet, I could only hear her quiet music coming through the speaker. So either she was up to no good or she was asleep.
Nap time success! And I didn't have to press my ear against the door or risk waking her by peeking in her room!
But by far my favorite feature is the Infrared Night Vision on the camera. Night time is when I really worry about her. So last night I heard a noise and took a peek using the Video monitor. Turns out Simone snores! It was really nice that I could hear and SEE that she was fine.
There is nothing more priceless than knowing your child is safe and sleeping soundly. I highly recommend the Motorola MBP41 Video Baby Monitor. It gives parents, both new and old, valuable peace of mind.
