Due to the dynamic nature of the consumer electronics industry, new product models tend to be released more quickly than in other industries. So when you combine baby + electronics we are taking it to a whole new level. A rapidly changing one!
Baby products are certainly way fancier then they were when I had my first born eleven years ago. However, I must say that while there are some frivolous baby gadgets out there, some sure do make parenting easier. They allow parents to sleep. Ha! Sleep?! Ok, maybe they don’t help parents sleep but they give peace of mind. For example baby monitors, unless you live in a small studio, a baby monitor is very useful and you will likely use it for years. It helps you keep tabs on your child, we use ours during nap and bed time, while we do yard/garden work or enjoy a bonfire. We use it every day, it’s a necessity around our household.
I’ll be honest though, we are currently using the same baby monitor for our son that we originally purchased about four years ago when we had our second daughter. With that said, after reviewing the monitors we have available today, I am once again amazed at how things have evolved. There are so many different kinds with awesome features, from simply audio ones, to video and to wireless High Definition baby monitors… just to name a few.
I’ve narrowed down three of our Best Selling baby monitors from each category I mentioned, so put your baby down for a nap and get your read on!
