Our sweet little Alea has been suffering from a cold now for weeks. WEEKS I tell you. Isn’t it just the hardest thing to hear your kiddo coughing and sniffling away and all you can do is offer them up some cold medicine every four hours or so? Other than that and chicken noodle soup there’s not much else we can do besides cuddle and love them despite their yucky runny noses.
Recently I’ve been waking up in the wee hours of the morning to Alea coughing up a storm in her room from this awful cold bug she’s got. It’s so disheartening to hear her struggle, but I love that I’ve been able to turn over and take a look at our new Motorola Video Baby Monitor and see if intervention is completely necessary. When you have to be up at 5am, this video monitor is a complete lifesaver. Sure, sometimes I do have to get up and grab her a glass of water to cure that tickle in her throat, but the times when I’m able to check the video monitor and confirm that she’s okay are amazing!
We love using our Motorola Baby Monitor for keeping an eye on Alea– especially when she’s sick. I know when we think baby monitor we think, well, babies! But this monitor is so awesome for even bigger kids. I love that it allows two-way communication so I can tell Alea that it’s time to put her book down and go to sleep and so I can sneak in an extra “I love you” or two. The night vision and remote pan and zoom are fabulous features as well. You can clearly see your little one at night and take a closer look at how they’re doing.
And for whenever baby number two comes around– we can add a second monitor and watch both of our little angels at the same time with picture-in-picture technology! I think this is my favorite feature of all. It’s nice knowing that it will grow with our family as well.
I swear to you, once you get a video monitor, you’ll never go back to a regular ol’ baby monitor. This is one luxury I can’t see us living without.
Do you use a video monitor for your little? What do you love about it?
