In the days before baby monitors, bedtime and naptime were (and are still ) penalizing respites for parents. But they didn’t automatically relax during these periods. Leaving baby alone on the second floor of the house or way down a hallway usually prompted a few visits to the nursery to determine if all was well. But using a monitor, parents can breathe a bit easier. That cry will let them know if they are needed.
But which monitor should you buy ? Our recommendation is the Nanit Plus Camera. Here’s why.
Made for parents with a more flexible budget for baby gear , the Nanit Plus is a high-end baby monitor that delivers what it promises. Named one of the best creations of 2018 by TIME Magazine, this baby monitor features two-way sound , a night light with slow dimming, night vision, smart sensors and much more .
The 960-pixel HD camera features night vision for easier baby tracking. There are two models for mounting the camera, either on a wall or with a floor stand. Using the screen in an open space like the living room, for instance , is as easy as dropping it in the room of a nursery. Also , using the monitor with your smartphone allows you to hear baby even while other apps are available or while your screen is locked. For an additional fee (after one year) that the Nanit will monitor the duration and sleeping pattern of your baby.
The Nanit Plus Camera is an Amazon’s alternative product , garnering thousands of rave reviews and a 4/5 rating. Satisfied parents like how well the camera connects with their smartphone (as well as how patient the Nanit support team is), while others praised the Nanit for being easy to move and setup . The camera and its attributes will also be praised highly, and a number of parents also noted that the insights that the camera provides , which according to them, helps them get “ nearer ” to their baby even when they’re far away.
The Nanit Plus Camera is our recommended high-end baby monitor which should stand the test of time… or more babies later on .
