The baby monitor is pretty much a guaranteed purchase for new parents, and for good reason. There’s a tremendous amount of peace of mind that comes with the ability to keep an eye on your little one while they sleep.
But depending on how they’re used, they can have quite the opposite effect. I’ve seen parents literally sprint down the hall at the every little peep out of the monitor, which is stressful for the parent and probably impeding their baby from developing independent sleep skills.
Today, I’ll give you some tips on how to use your baby monitor effectively, and when to power it down and put it away.
