HomeGadgetsBabyTop 5 Technology Must Haves for Babies July 27, 2010 My wee little one, is growing. He’s already 4 months and has melted our hearts. Wow. How time flies. In the time between #2 and this last kiddo, there were 5 years. In those 5 years, many great gadgets were created with the baby in mind. Whether you a digital mom on her 3rd kid, a first time mom, or a tech dad – check out these goodies. These also serve as great baby gifts – or put them on your baby registry: Technology for Babies Here are my top 5 Technology Must Haves for Babies 5. A Web Enabled Baby Monitor After searching for the ultimate baby monitor – we chose the Bambino Wireless Internet Baby Monitor. This monitor has a great reception, connects to my computer and who would of thunk… a baby monitor iPhone app – SOLD! We purchased out Bambino baby monitor at Amazon for $129 – it’s now $99! Not too shabby. 4. A Crib MP3 Player Our family loves music. The only music we can play, is Rock Band on the PS3 – but we can listen all day! Music has been a key in raising our children. With this handy dandy crib MP3 player, your baby can close his eyes and drift to sleep. We have the Rockabye Baby Lullaby Renditions of the Beatles on our little ones crib MP3 player. 3. A Wipe Warmer Your baby’s butt deserves the best. Treat your baby’s booty to nice warm wipes via a Prince Lionheart Wipe Warmer. Sure, you may roll your eyes, but just think – you always want to give your kids what you don’t have – and I bet you unless you are younger than a 2nd grader – your butt was NOT wiped by warm wipes. Your mom slapped wash cloths on your behind to do the cleaning. For $19.99 it’s worth putting on your registry. We had a warmer with our 1st and 2nd and this is the best wipe warmer we have come across. It’s very easy to maintain and the wipes are not too hot. 2. TextHook Stroller Smartphone Holder Working off those baby pounds? I hear ya sister. That cute little 7lb 6oz baby didn’t take all it’s weight with him when departing my body. He forgot about 40 lbs. So walking leaves you in an awkward situation on where to put your phone. So put your new iPhone 4G or any other smartphone into this brilliantly designed stroller phone holder - made for your stroller. The Texthook Stroller Smartphone Holder is sure to keep you occupied while hitting the concrete with the bambino! 1. A Good DSLR Camera A good DSLR Camera will create a whole new experience for your child. This is the first child that I’ve owned a DSLR at birth. My poor 3rd child has retina burn out from the photos i’ve taken of him I personally own a Canon 40D – which I absolutely love. If I were purchasing new today, I would definately take a look at the Canon EOS Rebel T1i. It’s priced right at $699 – HALF of what the 40D cost me! The Canon Rebel Tl1 boasts 15.1 MP, a 3-Inch LCD and you can get bundled with a EF-S 18-55mm f/3.5-5.6 IS Lens. To top all of that off – the Rebel Tli offers HD video. Yep, you can get those darling goo goo gah gahs in 1920 x 1080 resolution. In all seriousness, the photos you can capture via a DSLR are priceless. We haven’t thrown money at a portrait studio with this kid, we’re able to create our own experiences, not staged every day that are priceless and well shot. Thank you Canon 40D! (I have since upgraded to a Canon 60D) 3 Responses gayle November 22, 2010 With technology going at the speed of light, everyone is jumping through hoops to keep up. Multitasking is something that we have learned to do by just doing it. And while smartphones are undeniably and in truth, smart and miraculous, sometimes you just cannot manage with only one hand. The is the essential holder for any active lifestyle. It is your hands free companion wherever you go. With it tightly secured to your dashboard from it’s own simple handy hook you have full access to its keyboard and within seconds you are multitasking. Attaching the easel to the back your phone you can position it horizontally or vertically for easy access to any app. T … And now finding the phone is simple with the attached. This isn’t the serious bulky holder you’ve seen in the past, it is lightweight, durable and thin, it just slides in and out of almost anywhere… pockets, purses, wallets and even your sock if your really need a quick holder for it. I did go jogging with it tucked in my pocket, it actually stays put. I didn’t think of it being my savior while having to take a long trip with my grandchildren. BUT! It was simple, I downloaded a movie and we were on our way… with the smartphone to my weasl on the dashboard, the kids were able to watch a movie while I just daydreamed away. Not having to play “ I SPY” for hours, the time flew by. Reply Baby Names February 16, 2011 Thanks for sharing your information,i love your blog its help full for my babes.
