Baby & Kid
Baby monitors have evolved a lot from the first generations of old-fashioned walkie-talkies that you have to carry with you all the time. Newer models take advantage of modern connectivity and smartphones to enable more advanced features. Now parents can track their babies’ sleep, motion, and other vital signs from their smartphones, all in a high-definition resolution.
It’s hard to forget the first few days when I had my first baby, Lisa. I wanted to be with her 24/7, but no matter how much I thought I needed to be close to her crib, it is impossible to be wide awake at night after a tiring day taking care of her. Luckily, my pediatrician, who is also my friend, recommended the video baby monitor Infant Optics DXR 8.
Technology advancements have made security cameras more intuitive and easier to use than ever. Gone are the days when you had to have professionals come and install them in your home, only to find out those cameras require on-premises storage, and come with a user interface that is not user friendly, even for tech people. Nowadays, as long as you're comfortable with a smartphone and other devices like smart speakers, you should have no trouble installing a new security camera from brands like Ring, Arlo, and Nest.
For babies, especially newborns, as parents, we always want to spend most of our time with them. However, as much as you may want to, you can’t stay near them all the time or keep checking on them, since there are always some other businesses that will need your attention.
When I had my first baby, a breast pump was one of the first items on my list of “new-mom must-haves”, but I have to admit that I struggled to choose the most reliable model. So I spent some time researching and decided that the Medela in style advanced should be my pump as it is well-known for its excellent performance.
Breastfeeding can be both tough and time consuming. So if you find yourself not having enough milk or don’t have the time to fully feed the baby, then getting a breast pump is certainly a wise choice. And speaking of which, the Medela Symphony is currently the best rated breast pump on the market.
Either you plan to pump milk at work, while going on a trip, or even when you have a lot of errands, all you need is a portable product like the Spectra S9 Plus.
I heard about the Spectra S1 breast pump from my breast pumping buddies. Some (roughly 80%) gave me fantastic feedback about how incredible it was. Others (about 20%) said it did not meet their needs. I finally decided to get my hands on this product with the hope that it was a good bet.
