My son is 9 months old now, and one of my top 3 favorite baby items is my video baby monitor. I admit I was a little on the fence about splurging for a video monitor, but now that I have had one, I would never be without it! I use my baby video monitor every single day (and I am actually using it as I write this… keeping an eye on my little man as he snoozes!).
How do I love my video baby monitor? Let me count the ways…
One of the things I have learned to do since having kids is to multi-task! As much as I would love to spend the entire day playing with them, I haven’t yet figured out how to get the laundry to do itself, nor do I have a personal chef. Whenever my kids are playing together, I turn on the video baby monitor, sneak off to the kitchen, and get some work done. I can’t tell you what peace of mind it brings me to be able to see and hear them when I am not physically present in the room.
In the evenings, my son goes to bed relatively early, so every night after he is asleep, I turn the video baby monitor on and am able to spend time with my oldest, pick up the house, and relax, all while keeping an eye on my slumbering sweetie.
The Best Video Baby Monitor
Not all video baby monitors are created equally! I have tried a few, and my absolute favorite is the VTech VM343. The feature I like the best on the VTech VM343 is the Pan & Tilt Camera with the Automatic Night Vision. This allows me to move the camera up and down (120 degrees), and side to side (270 degrees) from the parent monitor.
The screen on the VTech VM343 is 4.3-inches, and shows high-resolution with full-color video feed. When my son shifts in his sleep, I am able to adjust the camera without disturbing my light sleeper. The night vision is awesome for seeing him at night, and with the big display and zooming up to 2x, I can see him better on my monitor than if I was laying next to him in the dark.
Another big concern of mine was ensuring the feed is private and secure. With VTech VM343, I know no one else is able to see or hear my little ones, other than me.
The VTech VM343 also allows me to speak over the video monitor, so if I need to soothe, sing or talk to my kids when I am in the other room, I can do so with ease!
If you’re looking for the best video baby monitor for your kiddos, or to give as a gift, I can’t recommend the VTech VM343 enough. I love, love, love it.
