How I Capture The Moment Even When She Sleeps
When my husband and I were young parents we were living in a small two bedroom town home where I could hear every sound my child made. Fast forward several years later and here we are in a large four bedroom home where I actually lose kids some days. During the summer months we enjoy spending time at the fire pit located in the yard. We have a family room in the downstairs where the older kids and I enjoy movie nights. Then there is the office located on the bottom floor furthest from the kids rooms. As soon as we brought my youngest home from the hospital I immediately realized that I was not going to be able to relax with her sleeping in the other room and me doing stuff around the house and yard. I was going to be that crazy mom running to her room and peeking in at her every five minutes. With two rambunctious kids running around the house, there was no way having her sleep in the main living area would work out. So what was the solution to keeping an eye on my baby and capturing every moment even when she sleeps? The solution was simple, we needed a video monitor!
We have owned many VTech toys over the years, but I was previously unfamiliar with their electronics. In addition to manufacturing cordless telephones, they also have an amazing brand of Safe&Sound® baby monitors. Ranging from compact audio monitors to award-winning high-tech video monitors, all of the VTech monitors share one thing… an emphasis on safety and security for parents and their children! I found that the VTech VM343 baby monitor was the most ideal one for our family.
The VTech VM343 video monitor is truly amazing and contains so many useful features! This baby monitor contains a pan and tilt camera and it actually pans up to 270 degrees side-to-side and tilts as much as 120 degrees up and down. You will never have to worry about missing a smile because of the camera’s full color, high-resolution video equipped with night vision on a large 4.3-inch LCD screen. The monitor can also expand up to four cameras, allowing you to keep an eye on your little one from any room. You can also choose from multiple viewing options, including single view (one camera only), split-screen viewing (all paired cameras at once) and patrol mode (single view that transitions to a different camera every seven seconds). The digital transmission feature ensures that all of your videos are private and secure! Plus it helps significantly in cutting down on background noise to ensure that the only sounds you hear are your baby’s. Lastly, the VM343 comes standard with up to 1,000 feet of range making it easier than ever to stay connected to my baby girl from any room in the house and even when we are outside enjoying some smores in the fire pit.
When my daughter use to wake up in the morning or from her naps, she would immediately start screaming/cry for me! I hated that she would wake up so upset, so we decided the best solution was to convert her crib into a toddler bed… that way she can come right to me when she wakes up. I absolutely love watching my babies wake from a sleep, their sleepy eyes, crazy hair and little stretches are simply adorable! I just so happened to peak at the monitor the other afternoon just as my sweet girl was waking from her nap. I was able to witness her slowly wake up, she sat there for awhile before she climbed out and headed to the door. Something really cute she does when she wakes up is knock on her bedroom door and wait for me to come. My heart just fills with excitement when I hear that little knock on her bedroom door. I am so grateful that the video monitor allows me to capture that moment when she wakes.
