In my almost three years of being a mom I have lived without a video monitor for the kids. We barely use our regular sound only monitors because our house is small enough that we can hear the kids making noise no matter if we’re on a different floor. But things have changed now. We are total video monitor converts!
Let me take a quick step back. Through Levana and FitFluential I was selected to participate in the Do More Knowing Your Baby Is Safe campaign. They sent me the Sophia video baby monitor to try out and the moment it arrived we put it to good use. Here are some details about the Sophia monitor:
Get more done knowing your baby is safe and sound with the Sophia monitor at your side. This baby video monitor has been designed with parent-friendly controls and features in mind, including 48 hour battery life in power saving PEEP mode, temperature monitoring, 15ft night vision, and 500ft ClearVu® digital signal. Babies love the Talk to Baby two-way communication, invisible night vision LEDs and soothing night light. Stay in tune with your baby from the next room and beyond thanks to the insight of your Sophia baby video monitor.
Most people probably would have set the monitor up on their littlest child. Not us. Zoe is over 1 year now and stays nicely in her crib. She is great at falling asleep without a problem and quite loud when she wakes, so I pretty much know what’s going on with her. I don’t have much fear or worry about her when she’s sleeping. But Hunter though… oh that boy. Since he’s no longer in a crib he can easily get out of his bed. Which he does all-the-time. The kids share a room and I can easily hear when they’re awake, laughing and having a good time being silly together when they should really be sleeping. Things get quieter when Zoe falls asleep so a lot of the time I think he’s asleep. Well, now I really know he’s causing some mischief!
I tend to clean up from lunch at nap time then work on dinner dishes and house pick up after they’re in bed for the night. I’ve been having the wireless monitor set up on the counter so now I can actually see what Hunter does when he’s falling asleep. Or working towards sleep. The boy is a riot! I’ve watched him air guitar and rock out singing a made up song, jump around all over his bed, jump in and out of bed, take everything off of his bed, then put it back on and so much more. I’ve also seen him get out of his bed so I come down to see what he is doing (when normally I wouldn’t bother since he was being quiet) to find him tapping Zoe because he wanted her to wake up. That kid.
I can honestly say we have been loving the Sophia monitor. It has a feature for two way communication, so I can talk to Hunter without being there. At first I thought it would scare him, so I didn’t want to try it. Then I did anyways and now pretty much anytime I use it he laughs at me, so it’s more of a fun feature for us. The sound that comes through the monitor is super crisp and clear with no static problems at all. It works way better than our sound only monitors that we have. The video images are easy to see and great quality. I love that it works in a dark room as well.
I really like Levana’s tagline Do More Knowing Your Baby Is Safe. I am much more at ease when I know Hunter is actually asleep and staying in his bed. I can work on getting things done around the house, take an uninterrupted shower, or even just hang out on the couch for a minute and relax. I am completely hooked on this!
And then he wakes and all the snuggles begin again.
