I was talking to my mom the other day about all of the "high tech gadgets", as she calls them, I have for Reign. We were talking about the items that I couldn't live without this past month, and as I was thinking about it, I really do use a lot of "high tech" items that I am so blessed to have! My mom basically just had her breasts, and arms as her gadgets. Lol. We are so lucky to have baby monitors, carriers, bouncy swings, dock a tots, bottle warmers and mama roos (just to name a few) to help make motherhood a little easier! Seriously though, how did the pioneers and people back then do it?! Let alone having a baby without an epidural! Yikes. I feel super blessed to have so much help from modern technology.
My heart breaks a little thinking about when I have to put Reign in her crib. It is coming closer than I think! Right now she sleeps in bed with us in her DockAtot and has a bassinet by my bedside that I will put her in sometimes as well. Even when she is 5 inches from my face in her DockAtot, I check on her every couple minutes. I can't help it!
I love putting the lollipop camera on her bassinet or sitting it up on on the nightstand while she is swinging in her mama roo. I put the camera on while she is sleeping or when I need to get some work done or cleaning around the house.
There is an app that connects over wifi to the camera, it is great, easy and efficient. I love being able to access the camera through my phone, since my phone is always on me. I am still easing into letting other people other then my husband watch Reign while I go out for errands and leave the house. But it is great, because I can watch her through my app while I am out and about! The app has many features other then just watching live video feed. If Reign starts to cry, fuss or move, it will automatically detect that something is wrong and make a 30 second video of the event which is saved on the app. One of my favorite things about the app is that I can invite family or friends to watch or share live videos/pictures of Reign. My mom lives in California, so I can invite her on the app and she can watch Reign sleep or hanging out via live stream! So it's like she isn't missing out on anything :)
My other FAVORITE thing about this camera is the design. Isn't this camera just the cutest?! It comes in three different colors, cotton candy pink, turquoise, and pistachio. The pink color goes perfectly with Reign's nursery, so i obviously had to go with that one :) The sleekness and ease of transferring the camera to different parts of the house is easily the best part about the camera. The handle is flexible and will twist and turn to any shape you need for wrapping around a crib, wall mount or sitting it down by itself.
I feel like every mom is going to need a camera at some point! It helps ease anxiety while your away from your baby, and it can help bring family together through live streaming :) I love it because while my husband is out of town, he can drop/spy in on Reign while she is sleeping and talk to her through the camera :)
