Keeping a watchful eye with a baby monitor

We have three of our boys sharing a room. They love it but sometimes it can get a little rowdy. We keep an eye on them with the help of a baby video monitor. We have on camera set up in the baby’s room and one in the room with the big boys. We can switch back and forth between the two rooms to make sure everyone is doing well throughout the night.

With the aid of our baby monitor we can see if the boys need our help when they get up in the middle of the night. If we hear a crash we can investigate the sound without interrupting everyone while they sleep. Most of the time it’s just someone tossing and turning in their bed. But occasionally we’ve found a child that needs help finding the bathroom or is having a hard time going to sleep. I feel so much more comfortable with the boys sharing a room knowing that we have a baby monitor.

I can keep an eye on 1 sleeping child while I’m busy with the others.

best baby monitors has some of the best baby monitors on the market today.  We have a monitor that has a two-way intercom. This feature is especially useful while trying to keep an active toddler in bed. We mounted our cameras to the wall opposite the boys beds to keep the wiring secure and to give us the best view of the room.

There are many different types of baby monitors so if you need help deciding on which monitor to buy check out this article: How to Choose the Best Baby Monitor.

    My favorite item is the wipe warmer! I’m expecting my fourth son, and it’s on my must-have list! They’re especially handy for middle of the night changes. The warm wipes seem to help keep extra wetness from flying! 🙂

    Thank you!!

    I Love their huge selection of pull ups and night pants! I have two kids that are in pullups and it gets expensive quick bc they are in two different sizes. One is 9 years old and the other is 5 years old.

  15. Christy Peeples DuBois

    They have so many products that I wasn’t aware they carry. One which I’d like to try is the Retinol Correxion Deep Wrinkle Serum.
