Disclosure: I received a VTech® VM333 Safe&Sound® Pan & Tilt Full-Color Video Monitor so that I could accurately review the product and I was compensated for my time. All opinions represented in this review are 100% my own and are not reviewed by V-tech before publishing.
Life is busy! For me, with 7 children in the house, sometimes I am overwhelmed by the amount of things I need to do. Don’t get me wrong. I do love it….but it can get overwhelming at times! We have so many chores that need to get done on any given day AND I have an infant in the house. Need I say more?
Baby Quinnly does not sleep well, unless she’s in mommy’s arms or in a very still and quiet environment. Sometimes I wonder how she got any sleep while in my womb, as loud as we are! The best way for me to get her to sleep to where she actually STAYS asleep is if I lay down in bed with her, let her nurse until she’s asleep and slowly inch away from her. But, I’ve never felt good about leaving her alone in the room. I like to be close to my babies and make sure they don’t suddenly quit breathing. I know, it’s highly unlikely, but ever since I learned about the risk of SIDS, I’ve always watched them close!
So, what’s a mom to do? Well, in the past, I’ve pulled up a chair to the dresser and worked on my computer, sitting right there in the same room where I could see her. Other times, I just sat on the bed, reading, napping or working on my computer right next to her until she woke up. She never seemed to nap very long though.
But now that I have this VTech® Safe&Sound® Video Monitor, I can point the camera right at her and go and get a few things done while watching her the whole time! The room stays quiet, which in turn helps her to sleep longer. How awesome is that? I can even do the dishes!
I know, it probably sounds weird to think about me being excited about doing my dishes, but my kitchen has been an utter disaster lately. Every time I tried to do the dishes, one of the older kids would accidentally wake her up.
With this baby monitor, once my camera is pointed at baby Quinnly, I can zoom in on her using the 2x zoom and I can even look around the room using the pan and tilt feature. It pans up to 270 degrees from side to side and as many as 124 degrees up and down.
With the built in microphone, I can hear her sounds. I can even talk back to her by pushing a button on the monitor and saying something to sooth her.
When she gets older, and a little more mobile, if I wanted to keep my eye on several different rooms at once, I could purchase 1 to 3 more cameras to hook up to this system and keep an eye on every area that my mobile baby or toddler will be. The monitor will rotate through each of those video’d rooms, show me a split view or even let me stay on just one of them.
For me, the fact that I can keep my baby safe AND get things around my house done is priceless. Baby needs more sleep. I need to get more work done. It’s a win-win situation! I don’t want to miss out on the simple moments, just because life is busy! Now, I don’t have to! And my kitchen is finally clean, too!
