Having a baby is probably one of the most exciting things in the world, but having twins is twice as fun. However, twins also mean double trouble in terms of chores and worries, so if you are currently expecting we want you to be prepared for every situation.
Today we’re talking about the importance of having baby monitors, why they’re useful and how much they can help you especially if you have twins. Without any further ado, here’s what you need to know.
What are baby monitors?
Most of you are probably familiar with the term baby monitors already, but if you’re the kind of person that’s just stepping into the world of parenting, you might not know what these devices are. There’s nothing to be ashamed of, and we’re here to explain everything about them.
Baby monitors are devices that allow you to stay in touch with your loved ones while at work or in another room of your home. When they were first introduced to the public, all monitors had just voice transmission, and it wasn’t even two-sided, meaning that you could only hear the babies without being able to talk to them. Nowadays, not that they provide a two-way voice communication but they allow you to have complete video access as well.
According to CuteLittleDarling.com, the pros of having a baby monitor that includes video are just way too good to pass on, with the only con being the slightly higher price compared to the voice-only ones. When it comes to our babies however, we should never try to “cheap out”, so the video ones are definitely the smartest decision.
What can they help me with?
All babies are supposed to sleep in quiet and peaceful environments which is crucial for their development. This means that you cannot take your baby to sleep in a living room with all the lights on and the TV making noise, and it also means that you cannot be in the baby’s room at all times since you have your own life and responsibilities as well. But what happens if the babies start crying in the middle of the night and you are not able to hear them? Well, you can avoid this problem completely by having a two-way communication baby monitor with video access.
One of the most common “problems” while being a parent is that you have to wake up every night when the babies start crying, and go over to their room in an attempt to calm them down and put them to sleep again. Well, you will not have to do this if they can hear your voice through the baby monitor, so you can either sing them a lullaby or talk to them while being in your own bed.
Waking up every single night is quite taxing on your body, meaning that you will not be able to go through your regular daily activities with ease or perform as you should at your workplace if you do this all the time. Baby monitors allow you to make things much easier as a parent, so feel free to consider grabbing one.
