Get the video camera!
I don’t know how long this type of baby monitoring has been around, but when I had Nikisha, the sound baby monitors were the only things available to monitor baby from another room. I never actually used them because I felt uncomfortable with the idea. Yes, I could hear if she cried or coughed, but I wouldn’t be able to see if she was pressed up against the side of the crib or worse. Running back and forth to her crib to check on her wasn’t a fun idea either. So, I would just lay a blanket on the ground wherever I’m at so I can keep an eye on her.
Now, if they had video monitors similar to these, I may have considered buying them. Except that they’re a bit pricey. But can you imagine, you can make all the noise you want while cleaning and not have to worry about waking up the sleeping baby on the floor next to you? I don’t know. Maybe it’s just me.
Either way, I want to get this.. or something similar. Even when Lorelai grows up, I can still use it for when she’s big. I can even use it now for when Nikisha wants to play in her room and I have housework to do.
