When my oldest was a baby, I never would have thought about getting a video baby monitor. It would have seemed like a somewhat needless expense when I was with my son so much anyways and when I already had a standard audio monitor to use when he was sleeping. But I never realized just how often I would think that I’d heard my son through the monitor, only to rush upstairs and discover that he was still sleeping.
That’s why ever since, I’ve been a huge advocate for video baby monitors. I’ve seen a few being used and the ease and security they provide are absolutely priceless. No more wondering if you really did hear your baby, because you can check the video and confirm he’s awake. And while a basic video monitor is great, there are also some with a variety of other features that will make them an essential in your house in no time!
