It’s time to celebrate Baby Dekker #2 here on the blog, and what better way to do that than with a week of fun baby-related posts and giveaways!

Click here to view the 12 fabulous giveaways — all geared to make life with a new baby a little simpler, more organized, and more fun!

When I was researching monitors before Nora was born, I KNEW I wanted one of the Angelcare monitors with the under-the-mattresses movement sensor pad. I really wanted my babies to sleep on their stomach if that’s what was comfortable for them — but I felt nervous about letting them sleep on their stomach without the sensor pad.

So since that was just early enough that video monitors were not super popular yet (I didn’t even know they existed) I purchased the more basic Angelcare monitor that was just for movement and sound.

And as I suspected, Nora LOVED sleeping on her tummy and it was the only way we could get her to fall asleep for months and months — boy was I glad I had the peace-of-mind of the movement sensor pad under her mattress!

Now that Nora is in her new bedroom upstairs, we felt that we really needed two monitors — one for her room and one for the nursery. Nora’s room is just too far away from our room for us to hear her when she’s crying in the middle of the night, and since she still wakes up 3-4 times per night, we definitely get good use out of our monitor!

We knew we wanted another Angelcare monitor with the Movement Sensor Pad — but this time, we wanted a video monitor as we realized how helpful it would have been when Nora was a tiny baby.

For the last couple of months, we’ve been “testing out” the Angelcare Digital Video, Movement, and Sound Monitor in Nora’s room — and I have to say, it’s pretty amazing! Even though we plan to move the video monitor to the nursery after the new baby is born, we’re having fun peeking in on Nora when she’s actually sleeping and using the walkie-talkie feature to tell her to get back into bed!

This monitor has all the features we LOVE about our other Angelcare monitor with the added functionality of a video camera — definitely a huge plus in our opinions!

These are just SOME of the amazing features of this video monitor!

Under-the-Mattress Movement Sensor Pad — Senses baby’s movements and will sound an alarm if no movement is detected after 20 seconds. We don’t use the pad with Nora but we will use it with the new baby

Color Video Transmission – You can use this monitor with or without the video feature; but honestly, I LOVE the video feature and peeking in on Nora (and eventually new baby) while they sleep!

Night Vision (Infrared Camera) – The infrared camera can easily stream video in the dark, so you can see what’s happening in the nursery without waking up baby.

LCD Touch Screen – a.k.a. you can use it like any other touch screen device 🙂

2-Way Talk-Back Feature – This monitor functions like a walkie-talkie which is awesome when naughty toddlers get out of bed 50 times a night!

Temperature Display and Control – This is such an awesome feature since our house is kind of drafty and we were always concerned if the nursery (and now Nora’s bedroom) was too hot or cold. Now we know for sure and can adjust with portable heaters or fans. You can even set an alarm to alert you if the temperature gets too high or low.

Portable & Rechargeable Parent Unit – I love that the parent’s unit is fully portable (it even has a clip to attach to your clothing) and I also love that it comes with rechargeable batteries and a charging base so I don’t need to be replacing batteries every 2 weeks.

Nursery Night Light – The  top of the baby unit can serve as a gentle nightlight — perfect for all those middle of the night wake-ups when any other light is just too bright.

Adjustable Camera Angle – Position your baby video monitor for the perfect view – and safely out your child’s reach. Moms and dads love this feature, especially since it helps create a safe sleep environment as their child reaches new milestones and becomes more curious.

Parent Unit Locator – You know, for all those times you accidentally misplace the parent’s unit!

    This monitor is amazing! We have been researching them for our baby due in April and haven’t seen any that are this good.

    Hi Andrea,
    I really like reading your blog! We have two young children. When I was pregnant with my first child, I bought the old version of the angel care monitor with sensory pad from a garage sale. I recently read in Consumer Reports that my version was recalled for safety issues regarding strangulation with the sensory pad’s cord. Just an FYI. When my second child was born a year ago, we bought the summer infant video monitor and an extra camera, all on clearance at Target. There is a camera in each child’s room, and the parent unit allows for us to see both girls. It switches between rooms every few seconds. We are so happy with it!
    Thanks for all you do! Can’t wait to hear about the birth of your little boy!

    I never thought to use a sensor and let baby sleep on their tummy. Genius! I had my first sleep on her back but would always “catch” my mother letting her sleep on her tummy (which she seemed to enjoy)… i may have to try this for number 2 due in august!

    Congrats on baby #2! We’re huge fans of the Angelcare sensor pads — and I believe they are the only brand that offers the sensor pad.

    I remember waaaay back when I would babysit my cousin (he’s graduated from college now) and babies were ‘supposed’ to sleep on their stomach incase they spit up. He would always fall asleep while I was holding him and everytime I would try to roll him on his stomach to lay him in his crib he would wake up!!! Now they are ‘supposed’ to sleep on their backs, it would have been so much easier!!

    Andrea Reply:

    haha… yeah, my sisters and I all slept on our tummies and we turned out fine. There’s just so much pressure now days to sleep on their back that I felt better using the sensor pads for tummy sleeping.

    You’re gutsy for fessing up to sleeping your babies on their stomachs:) We do it too… but are aware that we’re going against the grain.

    Good luck with baby two! Hope all goes well.
