VTech Safe & Sound Baby Monitor review

Vtech Baby Monitor

Did you know that September is Baby Safety Month? As the mother of an almost 9-month-old and a 3-year-old, safety for my children is always on my mind.

That said, I am sort of an obsessive baby-checker. I don’t like leaving my children in the room alone, and while this was fine when I only had one baby it’s nearly impossible to be in the same room with both kids now. I don’t know how I ever lived without a baby monitor before, but I did, and after reviewing VTech’s Safe & Sound Baby Monitor this month I realized that I have been missing a whole world of freedom and peace of mind.

I guess I hadn’t realized how sophisticated baby monitors had become, because when I opened the VTech Safe & Sound Monitor I was blown away. The camera was simple to mount in Kara’s room and I was really surprised by the clarity and sound quality of the monitor itself. It’s just so incredibly nice to have a bird’s eye view of Kara at all times.

I love the temperature reading, as Kara’s comfort level while sleeping in her crib is always a worry for me. I am also really happy with the clarity of the picture when the room is completely dark.

When it comes down to it, the peace of mind that the VTech Safe and Sound Baby Monitor offers me is invaluable. I don’t know WHY in the world I didn’t have a monitor before — it’s really a whole new world for me.

Am I the only one who is an obsessive baby-checker? What steps do you take to feel more secure about the well-being of your baby?

I wrote this review while participating in a campaign by Mom Central Consulting on behalf of VTech and received a product sample to facilitate my review and a promotional item to thank me for my participation.
