With baby #3 on the way, I’ve learned by now what products I love and need after my baby is born. For the first child, I think I we received everything under the sun for our first child, and for that I was very thankful. However, I learned what babies need or don’t need pretty quickly and by baby #2, I knew I didn’t need as much. It’s interesting how the list of things needed gets smaller and smaller with each kid. We gave away most of our baby items away after the 2nd child because we thought we were finished, but it turns out, we weren’t. Even though we are starting with almost nothing again, my list of things we need still remains very small. Diapers, wipes, a few summer onesies, bassinet and other odds and ends is all my baby needs in the first few months!
I loved using baby monitors. Baby monitors are great. We lived in a 2 story house, so when my girls were sleeping upstairs, I could hear them wake up when I was working downstairs. Baby monitors are also on the list of must-haves for baby, but this year, I wanted to go a step further and use a digital video baby monitor. I actually wish I had a video baby monitor for my first two babies. There’s just something about being able to hear AND see your baby vs. just hearing and wondering how they are doing. It will be nice to be in one room doing what I need to be doing (working, laundry, dishes, resting) while my baby is in the nursery sleeping. I love knowing that I can check in on my child by glancing at the video monitor instead of opening the door, going in and peeping down into the crib. I can’t tell you how many times I woke my girls up when I tried to check on them as babies! Waking a sleeping baby is never a good idea if you are a tired mom and need rest, too!
The Levana Astra 2 Digital Video Baby Monitor is our choice for a video baby monitor for our baby on the way. This video baby monitor is a brand of high-tech, stylish and reliable baby video monitors that give parents the freedom to do more knowing their child is safe. With a 3.5” screen, whisper quiet pan/tilt/zoom (PTZ) image control and soothing Talk to Baby™ intercom you will always feel close to your baby no matter what your day brings.
I was able to test this video baby monitor out on my 4 year old daughter recently. She’s been home sick for the last three days with me. While she’s resting and sleeping in the living room, I’m able to come into my office and get some of my work done. While I sit here at the computer, I’m able to watch what she’s doing and will know when she starts squirming around and waking up from her nap.
I placed the camera on one side of the living room and was able to zoom in on her using the video monitor. At one point, I saw her sit up, look around the room, and then go right back to sleep. I can also hear the Peppa Pig episode playing in the background. I like that I can hear AND see everything that’s going on. Knowing that I’ll be able to use this digital baby monitor when the baby arrives gives me a great sense of peace and relief since I’ll be able to monitor him/her when I feel the need and as I’m able to sit down and get some work done during the day.
I can talk to my daughter as well with the Levana Astra 2 Digital Video Baby Monitor. I push a button in the corner of the monitor and I can speak to her. She had fun with this feature as I caught her off guard and started talking to her while she was on the couch. We then started having a cute conversation through the camera with each other and she was amazed that she could hear me and I could hear her! This will come in handy when baby needs to know that I’m still there by hearing my voice when he or she is waking up from nap.
