When it comes your baby, we understand that safety is no joke. We, as parents, often feel that our children are safest when we can see and hear them. That’s why many parents feel that baby monitoring devices are beneficial in extending their sight and hearing to keep track of their little ones, even when they are not physically in the same location as them. Here are a few of the benefits that many parents associate with Baby Video Monitors.
Seeing is believing/ Visual verification of a sound: Say it’s naptime and baby is sleeping soundly in the other room, so you think, when you hear a noise which could be a single cough, or it could be the only cough baby is capable of making due to choking.
With a sound monitor, any unusual sounds coming through the monitor will cause most parents or care takers to simply pause their activity–washing dishes, reading the paper, taking some much needed personal time- and listen for more sounds which would indicate some other action is needed.
If after a few moments of quietness pass by, it is natural to assume it was a “false alarm” and to resume the aforementioned activity. Rather than simply guessing that everything is okay, a video monitor allows a visual to match both sound and sight together giving you a whole other sense in determining if that “sound” was really nothing, or if it is something that requires immediate attention.
Nanny Cam/ Secure Remote Access: Many parents feel nervous about leaving their child with another individual for extended periods of time, and are naturally suspicious. When that business meeting or day job pulls you away from the little one(s), you may be tempted to run back home during lunch break to check in on them. With a video baby monitor, it is possible to securely access live video feed of your child while away from home—check in on the new nanny, verify your little sunshine is napping according to schedule, or even check that older children are doing their chores and homework like they are supposed to.
Less Stress and Greater Peace of Mind: Raising a little one can be quite stressful. A baby video monitor can help to reduce the stress and anxiety associated with being apart from a child, as well as allow parents to sleep better at night; rather than frequently getting up at night to make sure baby is okay only to find baby is still sleeping sweetly, parents can check the video baby monitor, which can help them to rest more soundly all while knowing baby is doing the same.
For many parents, a baby video monitor is an added source of peace of mind and reassurance that gives them a sense of finally being able to be in “two places at once.” Baby video monitors often provide parents with the benefit of checking in on their little one(s), even when long distances away from them.
