How To Monitor Your New Born With Technology

Mar 29, 2008
New parents often feel nothing but fear and nervousness when they are separated from their children. This can be especially true for first time parents who have had little hands on experience with babies. Anxiety can occur when babies are taken to a day care for the first time or even when a baby must be left alone in their room for a short period of time. To a few parents, the answer is to keep the baby in question close to them at all times. The problem with this is that over parenting can sometimes stunt a baby's psychological growth and sense of independence.

A great middle ground is to invest in a baby monitor. These devices are easy to use, reliable, and in some cases extremely high tech. The traditional baby monitor that most adults are familiar with is similar to a walkie-talkie. The monitor placed in the infant's room or location will relay sounds back to the other monitor so that the parent will know what their baby is doing without actually being in the room with them.

Baby monitors are a great way to listen out for a baby during the night hours. Instead of keeping your baby in your bedroom you will now be able to let the baby sleep in their own room and still be able to hear their cries as clearly as if their cradle was still next to your bed. Now, thanks to technology, baby monitors have even more features than before. Some baby monitors have sensitive motion sensors that can detect the slightest movement. This will help you monitor who is entering your infant's room which can be especially useful if you are a parent with other small children.

Video baby monitors are also starting to become available at a more affordable rate. These video baby monitors will give parents the piece of mind of being able to see what their baby is doing without physically being in the room with them. Some parents enjoy these video baby monitors because it gives them a unique opportunity to see how their infant plays and entertains themselves when no one is around to watch.

There are several things to keep in mind when choosing an appropriate baby monitor. First off, how complicated do you think your baby monitor needs to be? If you just want a baby monitor to listen out for your infant crying at night then all you need is a very basic baby monitor model. The model should consist of a Parent unit which is used to listen to what is going on in the baby's room and a Baby unit that stays in the location you wish to monitor. The monitor should also have an AC adapter and, if possible, rechargeable batteries.

It is highly recommended that you invest in a baby monitor that uses batteries in addition to the standard adapter. Not only does having a battery operated baby monitor give you more flexibility when it comes to choosing a location to place the baby monitor in it also ensures that you will be able to use your baby monitor even if the power goes out.

Secondly, make sure you purchase a baby monitor that has a frequency equal to, or above, 2.4 GHz. This will help cut out interference from other digital transmissions and keep your own transmission secure. It might be fun to listen in on someone else's phone conversation or baby monitor signal but imagine having someone listening to what is going on in your own home?
