Video monitors are an idea I’ve always been a fan of. I think that they’re functional from birth all the way until privacy becomes an issue (haha!). For a newborn, I obviously use it to make sure that they’re sleeping safely. As they get older, it becomes a good way to make sure that they’re actually taking a nap and not getting into toys or something that they shouldn’t be. It’s completely essential, in my opinion, to have a video monitor. Do the dishes, make dinner, go to the bathroom and know that the kids are okay. I didn’t think that this idea could get any better until I came upon Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor.
The Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor is a video baby monitor that is also a little stuffed animal! I chose the giraffe because giraffes are awesome, and it is just unbelievably adorable! That’s not even the only reason I love this monitor, even though it’s a pretty great perk. The Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor is a travel monitor, so you can just take both parts wherever you’re going. The arms of the stuffed animal monitor have velcro and clips so that you can put them all over. The camera can be split-screen (second monitor sold separately) and has night vision. The battery is rechargeable and you can plug it into the car charger that it comes with but why would you plug it into the car? Because the Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor was originally created for us in the car so that you can see your rear-faced babies! The monitor has a little suction stand similar to the ones you would get with a GPS.
I am absolutely thrilled to have this capability. I’ve tried the mirrors for the car. I struggle to see them with mirrors and the babies kick them down because they’re really not very fun and I think they’re distracting for mom and Baby. I want to know what my babies are up to, if they’re sleeping comfortably, or even for the older toddlers, if they’re doing okay eating their car snacks they may have been given. With my older kids, I also like to make sure that they aren’t bugging their sibling.
The Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor is SO easy! All of the kids thought it was so cute, and I hung it up on the seat where it could see my rear-faced 2 year old. The glare-free screen was perfect for viewing and I placed it in a space on my windshield where it wouldn’t distract me but I could also check it with little effort. I kept telling the little guy that I could see him with the giraffe and to say “Hi!”, he thought it was fun! I was able to see when he was starting to fall asleep, ask him questions about what he needed, and tell my 5 year old to stop poking him. Mom’s got eyes in the back of her head for real now, thanks Infanttech!
I would HIGHLY recommend the Infanttech Plush Animal Monitor over other monitors because it’s unique. It’s appealing to the kids, simple to be taken on-the-go, multi-functional, and can be used with dual cameras or even as a nanny cam. I would definitely get a second camera so that I could watch my new baby and my two year old and I would put this on a list of my favorite baby items. A+!
