Benefits: The cool mist keeps Ollie's skin from getting dry and keeps his room cool in the summers. The diffuser keeps things smelling nice and can be used to diffuse certain oils when he is sick.
Why this one: It is adorable and I love that it has the diffuser and humidifier in one. Why have 2 devices when you can have one!
2. Gynoii Video Baby Monitor
Benefits: I can spy on my child while he sleeps! But, seriously, a video monitor is great for sleep training. It is so hard to not go in their room when they start fussing at night, but if you can see them to reassure yourself that they are ok, it makes the transition to the crib easier.
Why this one: I didn't want to cary around another devise to see him on. The Gynoii camera is sleek and modern looking and the video feed live streams to an app on my phone!
3. The First Years Double Audio Baby Monitor
It may seem redundant to have both a video and an audio monitor, but I have a good reason. First off, I don't have my phone on the video monitor app all night. When my phone goes to sleep, the monitor is no longer emitting a signal. I still want to be able to hear if Oliver wakes up so I can turn on the monitor and check him. So why not just get a non wifi monitor and have it on all night? I love the convenience of the wifi monitor. When we have a babysitter or I am away from the house, I can turn on my monitor on my phone and check on him. You can't do that with a traditional monitor. This option works best for us.
Many people will tell you that a baby food processor is useless- "Baby's only eat purees for a few months, so you can either spend $50 on a food processor or $50 on jars of baby food". However, I disagree. Once baby outgrows purees, you can still use your Baby Breeza. I make homemade purees, freeze them into small bite sized circles, and allow Oliver is feed himself. I also see a huge benefit in making my son's food so I know what he is putting in his mouth.
These are only 4 of the thousand of devises out there for mom's but they are the ones I like!
