MY REVIEW

One of my biggest worries about having a third baby has been protecting him from his older, curious, and often mischievous brothers, particularly when he’s asleep.

Solution? Video monitor.

With the Summer Infant Slim & Secure video monitor that we received for review, I can keep my eye on baby at all times, even when he’s asleep alone in his room.

The Slim & Secure monitor is super handy – it’s lightweight, cell phone sized, runs on a 10 hour rechargeable battery, and has great picture (color or B&W-ish night vision) and sound quality. The video turns off after a little while for convenience at night, so it can be used just as an audio monitor if that’s all you need. You can also manually turn off the camera on either the receiver or the camera unit.

There’s a battery icon on screen at all times so you know when it’s time to plug in as well as brightness and sound adjustments right on the receiver unit.

Because the receiver unit is about the size of a cell phone, you can carry it attached to your clothing or stand it up on its own. The connection is secure for up to 350 feet and the 2.5″ digital screen is just the right size for easy viewing.

Here’s a short video for more information:

Knowing I can always see what baby is doing and who may or may not be bothering him puts my mind at ease during the day and at night as well. I love being able to check on him without the risk of waking him up too!

{Thanks to Summer Infant for sponsoring this review!}

This monitor would have to be my favorite. I too am having my third and trying to figure out how I will keep my eye on everyone.

2 Tam September 20, 2011 at 2:56 pm

The Deluxe Piddle Pads! What an awesome idea!

3 Ramah September 20, 2011 at 3:00 pm

I have been looking at video monitors, and this one looks great! So I would have to agree that this is my favorite Summer Infant product. We have a 6-year old son, and are finally expecting baby #2 (a girl!). So this video monitor would be perfect.

4 Tasia September 20, 2011 at 3:10 pm

My sil actually has the cordless baby monitor from SI and says there has never been static once, so I think that’s another good product. But my daughter is now 2 and a half and I’m dying for a video monitor. Sometimes I hear her just singing and talking away, when she’s supposed to be asleep, and I just wanna watch what she’s doing. haha

I would love to win the video monitor. My six month old is a light sleeper and I would like to be able to see him without disturbing him. As for our favorite SI product, I would need to say the Swaddle Me wearable blankets. They were very useful for the early months with the six month old.

I remember using the more old school monitor where you can only hear your child and see red lights. Summer Infant has done a great job using today’s latest technology. it would be amazing to have the video monitor for our next little one. No more disrupting sleep time with checking in and be able to camera zoom and pan is my favorite features.
