Like, all the time busy. I'm a full-time mom, a full-time wife and I work (you guessed it) full-time. Waking up some mornings, it is a rush from one thing to the next. There is school, lessons, meetings, activities and sometimes we even manage to have a homecooked meal together!
Every parent laments the idea of "missing out" on their kids growing up. It's difficult - they grow so fast! But in the day-to-day, I've become more aware of missing out on the little moments - and sometimes that can be a safety issue!
With 2 boys (ie: Big Trouble and Little Trouble), I have to always be alert. It's amazing how quickly they get into things, make a mess or put themselves in a potentially harmful situation. Parents need multiple sets of eyes to keep track of their kids nowadays!
While we may not actually have eyes in the back of our heads, we can embrace devices that help us keep an eye on our little ones. It really is amazing the products that has come along from my oldest to the youngest days! From a 6 year old to a 15 month old - the technology is a LIFE SAVER!
I have been super impressed with theVTech Safe & Sound Pan and Tilt Baby Monitor I have had the fortunate opportunity to review many baby products over the years and when i found out I was pregnant with Hudson, I knew that BABY MONITORS were the BIGGEST thing I needed to get right!
I was recently sent my major GO TO MONITOR that I am FOREVER going to have attached to my belt buckle.
This little camera does it ALL! The camera can pan 270 degrees side-to-side and tilt 124 degrees up and down. It can also zoom in. I love that you have the ability to adjust the camera position, whether the kids are playing or sleeping, to see exactly what you need to see. I love this product so much that because we are on three levels in our townhome - I went out and got ANOTHER camera!! I have one of them set up on the baby crib with the viewer by my bed. The other viewer is set up all the way to the very downstairs in our house so I can hear the baby when he wakes up from naps. Otherwise, I have to drag the monitor all over the house. It really has become a lifesaver.
Even better, the VTech system has a "multiple view option." What does that mean? It means you can support up to 4 cameras on one parent unit. So if you want to keep an eye on the bedrooms as well as the playroom, VTech has you covered (literally!). And TRUST ME when I tell you - I LIVE by the dual views!!
Another huge addition to this product is that is has a great range to it. I can step outside and grab my oldest from the school bus while the baby is napping! I can play outside with the oldest and have the baby inside. It allll works out and I do not have to run up and down 500 stairs!!
VTech has never let me down and they have gone above and beyond with this baby monitor.
As part of a program I'm working on with Mom it Forward & VTech, I was sent this monitor for review.
