When Verizon Wireless offered to let me and my family try out the Withings Smart Baby Monitor, I couldn’t resist! My brother is in the military and is often out to sea. With this new, beautiful baby, it makes it tough. We all want to see him grow and watch his milestones. He changes each time I see him. The technology of the baby monitor has changed significantly since Allie Kat was a baby. We couldn’t share our monitor with friends and family the way it can be done today!
When Allie Kat was a baby, we hadn’t considered the possibility of needing a baby monitor. Fortunately, my mom’s amazing best friend had considered this possibility and gave us one when Allie was born. It was before the days of video monitor popularity because video monitors were not yet affordable. We used the monitor all the time and we were so thankful to have it! It was nice to work out in the yard while Allie was napping and still be able to monitor her.
The monitor allows you to log in to the Withings application on your Droid or Apple product and monitor your child remotely. What an ingenious idea! The monitor can be viewed from either a cell phone or tablet/Ipad, which is great! This is fabulous for anyone that has to be far away from their children.
The monitor plays lullabies, has a night light, detects a change in room temperature, lets you speak to your baby and is perfect for a nightstand. All of the features can be controlled right on the monitor or remotely, using your desired Android/Apple device. You can designate more than one user, so Daddy who is out of town and Grandma who is out of town can both see what is going on with Junior. How cool is that? All the times that Mr. Bear had to be out of town, he could have logged on and seen our little princess fast asleep. I wish this was available when we were brand new parents!
It has been so much fun to have a new baby in the family and I just love to snuggle this little guy! I had an opportunity to babysit for a couple of hours. He is such an easy, content little guy and I am so happy for my brother and his family! I am hoping to babysit again soon.
