So your 6 months pregnant and completely satisfied with your preparation so far. Your nesting instincts kicked in at about month 3 and you promptly listed everything you needed, you even polished off the nursery early enough to change the color when powdery pink began looking more like pepto. But wait! The monitor, you forgot the baby monitor. With so little time you might be tempted to panic. And how can you know if your picking a good one? Have no fear, we have compiled 5 sure fire ways to know how to pick the best baby monitor for you. 5 ways to make sure you pick the best baby monitor:
1. Flexibility and Range
2. Clear Night Vision
Is the monitor tangled up by wires or is it a wireless device? A wireless device will give you the ability to move around and not be chained to a certain spot in order to keep an eye on your little one. Additionally, what type of range does the monitor have? A nice long range device also gives you the ability to be mobile. Need to do some laundry or step out in the garage to grab something real fast? Make sure your baby monitor choice has long range capabilities so that you can have options.
Having a baby monitor for nap time and quiet time when your little one is playing nicely in their crib, but it is also important to be able to see what is going on with them at night. This can be especially true when your baby is super tiny and everything is new (for you and them), but also when they are older and possibly trying to escape from their bed in the quest for newly discovered independence. So definitely check if there is has quality night vision capabilities.
A big concern with modern baby monitors is privacy. What ways does the baby monitor protect your child from being hacked? Does it have features to prevent undesired spying from outside sources? It is important to mention that monitors with live streaming and web enabled capabilities can be wonderful, but with all great things there are cautions to be aware of. With most baby monitor models, privacy is definitely one of these cautions.
One great feature is the ability to link multiple cameras and view them from one display. This allows you to have monitors in multiple areas of your house without the hassle of also having multiple displays crowding things. This also gives you the ability to see multiple view points in one room, like if you have more than one child in a room for example. Look out for this feature, it can be so useful in a baby monitor!
Finally, check on what brand it's from. Ratings and reviews can be instrumental in judging if a product is good or not. And though this is true, how solid is the Brand. Do they have many well reviewed products? What is their quality track record? Do they have any kind of guarantees? All of these questions can better help you gauge if a specific baby monitor is the right fit for you.
So there you go! Rest on these tips and know that the answers to some of these questions can dictate whether or not you end up with a good product. Too busy to do all the research?
