Levana Sophia Digital Video Baby Monitor #Giveaway ARV $100
Every new parent is nervous, I think. But new adoptive parents are a whole different level of nervous and anxious. We are crazy from the waiting sometimes and so grateful for our precious gift of parenthood that we can be hyper vigilant about our new roles and responsibilities. I can easily recall how we (mostly I) spent many nights hovering outside the door of Payton’s nursery. I remember how I didn’t trust that Payton would keep breathing all night long on her own. I read a lot about SIDS and I worried about the things that could go wrong. I would tippy toe into her room, which was right beside ours, and check on her over and over, especially that first few months. A lot of you know we adopted our kids and I can tell you that after nine years of marriage, infertility and several horrible health care issues, the fact that Payton’s birthparents chose us to be her parents for life meant that I was overly vigilant and out to prove we were deserving of this child. That went on for at least the first eight years of her life. We had waited so long and I couldn’t risk taking any chances with our precious gift. Plus she really was such a treat as a baby. She was a happy, healthy bit of heaven. If there had been such a thing as a Digital Video Baby Monitor back then I would have been so much more comfortable as a parent.
Over time I grew more confident in the strength of her little body to keep doing what she needed it to do. After we adopted Ainsley, I was a bit more confident, but still there were health issues we were keeping an eye on with our youngest child and so she required some close attention. We were blessed to be given so many great tools and toys and baby furniture items from friends and relatives. Grandparents spoiled our two little princesses too. One of those gifts was a baby monitor. It’s on every baby shower wish list. I can’t recall the brand, but suffice it to say that 13 years ago baby monitors did not look quite this sleek. What I wouldn’t have done to have one like the Sophia Digital Video Baby Monitor.
The Sophia Digital Video Baby Monitor is extremely light. I kind of can’t get over that. At first it seemed like it was so light it might not be able to do the job required. But then I realized the lightness of the gadget itself is largely because the device is digital. Our old baby monitors were heavy because of all the plugs and wires attached. Thank goodness for new technology. The Sophia allows you to keep an eye on baby and might even provide a good opportunity for sleep training as well. As long as you can see your baby on the video monitor then you know they are okay, even if they are crying. The video monitor also means you can gently talk to your child and calm them down even from your room. Sometimes they just need to hear your voice. This device is an expandable system. You can add four extra cameras if you need them. The light is adjustable as well. But don’t just take my word for it. You can enter to win one right now. Or you can skip the wait and buy one now.
I am giving away a Sophia Digital Video Baby Monitor to one lucky reader. Follow the instructions and Good Luck!
