Nine years ago when I had my boy, video baby monitors weren’t the norm for parents. We just had the standard baby monitor that I carried with me for the first four years of his life. We’ve shared a room his whole life, except for a six month trial period in his nursery. Liam has always suffered from separation anxiety so sharing a room is the only way anyone in this house gets any sleep. That monitor though, that was my lifeline! When I did get him to nap or to sleep before me, I needed that monitor. My boy suffered from night terrors for the first 7 years of his life. It was hell.
So fast forward to present day. Liam is now nine, and working on transitioning to his own room. He has made it as far as the living room. However, his sleep patterns are still all over the place and I’m exhausted from numerous trips out there to check on him each night.
When I had to opportunity to try out the Motorola Digital 3.5″ Video Baby Monitor (MBP853CONNECT) I was stoked! No, I don’t have a baby any more, but this monitor is perfect for special needs parents as well. We all know what new parents need a monitor for, but what about parents like myself?
Let me tell you. My son is autistic with bipolar disorder as well. So he sleeps very little. He is also very active at night, meaning I get little to no sleep. We even sometimes have to be on suicide watch. Yes, you read that right. I worry constantly. What if he goes outside? What if he gets into something he shouldn’t? We need eyes on him at all times. Enter the Motorola Digital 3.5″ Video Baby Monitor (MBP853CONNECT)
This video monitor gives me eyes and hearing at all times! It’s giving him a bit of independence while keeping me from a heart attack!
The monitor has infrared night vision, so you can see your child clearly day or night. It even shows you the room temperature. It comes with a 3.5 inch digital screen on the parent unit. Two way communication and lullabies are even built in. You can view your child on the parent unit, or connect wirelessly to compatible Android or iOS devices. In other words, it’s also a “nanny cam.” (Simply download the FREE Hubble app and follow the instructions from there.)
As you can see, this is perfect for new parents, and “old” parents alike. I think every parent could benefit from this monitor and I highly recommend it. Safety should never be taken for granted, and with this monitor, it won’t be.
The Motorola Digital 3.5″ Video Baby Monitor (MBP853CONNECT) retails for around $249.99 and can be found at many retail stores such as Walmart, Target, Home Depot, and more.
