It’s been a while since I last wrote on this blog and it’s been a hectic few weeks. My sister and her husband are just about to have their first baby so it was time for my wife and I to go shopping this weekend and buy some gear for the expectant couple. We were quite lucky as they gave us a list of items that they wanted (she is quite organised my sister) and this included all the baby gadgets and nursery accessories.
We wanted to spend a reasonable amount of money so picked the baby monitor of the list. I remember buying a baby monitor when our children were younger (about 10 years ago) and I seem to recall you had a reasonable choice but features, etc were fairly limited. In fact the only feature was being able to hear your baby!
Well things (and technology) have certainly changed! I thought I better do some research before setting off (I like to plan) so I searched on website such as Mothercare and Baby Monitor Centre (http://www.babymonitorcentre.com) an well, what a shock. You can get all sorts these days! Video baby monitors looked pretty amazing. I love the fact that a lot of them allowed you to actually adjust the camera position in the baby’s room. Lots of models even told you the temperature in the room. How things have changed.
