I have two very active little boys (a 3 year old and a 19 month old) and they love playing pretty rough, running around, jumping off of things, and climbing on furniture. As a mom, it drives me crazy! I always feel that they’re going to hurt themselves or each other. I know that it may be my mom-mind overreacting, but I can’t help it. I was able to get them to stop climbing on my furniture, but I’ve tried everything to get them to stop being so rough, but not much works. I’ve heard the saying that “boys will be boys”, but I don’t want them getting hurt. I’ve realized that when they’re in a room alone without the other one or when I’m watching, they’re a lot calmer. It’s got to the point where I carry my youngest with me when I have to run upstairs for a few seconds to get something done. That way I don’t have to worry about them being mischievous while I’m out of the room. I don’t like having to take my baby with me everywhere because it takes me longer to get things done, however I do want my babies to be safe. That’s why I’m glad we’ve found the Levana Ovia Baby Video Monitor to help me keep an eye on them and to relieve some of my stress.
Now, I’m able to be in two places at once (figuratively speaking, of course)! I can get housework done without having a baby on my hip because I’m able to take the video monitor with me all around the house. The rotating camera can track them all around the room and since it comes with two cameras, I can watch them from two different views by easily toggling between the cameras from the options on the monitor. If I see my babies getting a little too rough, I can talk to them through the speakers on the cameras. It’s pretty funny using the speakers the first few times because they didn’t know where my voice was coming from and it freaked them out a little. Now that they know that I can watch them while I’m out of the room, their rough housing has calmed down a lot.
Another plus about having the double monitors is that while my oldest is downstairs playing, I can take my little one upstairs for a nap and still be able to monitor them both. I can play soothing music through the camera for my youngest who sometimes has trouble falling asleep and it won’t play on the camera downstairs at all.
I love the Ovia 2 Camera Baby Video Monitor because it also has a motion sensor setting. This especially comes in handy at night when my babies are supposed to be asleep. The reason I say “supposed to be” is because my oldest will sometimes climb out of his bed in his room and will run to our room to sneak into our bed. The monitor will automatically come on with the motion sensor setting and I can tell him, through the camera, to get back in his bed before he even gets out of his room.
I’m so happy now, knowing that I can keep an eye on my boys to make sure that they’re safe and I don’t worry as much!
