When my wife and I found out that she was pregnant, it was the happiest day of our lives. We had been trying to conceive a child but encountered some difficulty along the way. Immediately we started buying items for the baby. The first thing we bought was a baby monitor to watch the baby. Like with many baby products, there are a lot of variations of baby monitors, with some being better than others. For us, it came down to the Infant Optics DXR-8 vs Motorola MBP36 in a battle of the best baby monitor.
Both monitors had some good features, and they seem pretty equal in quality, but ultimately the deciding factor for us was the price. The Infant Optics model came at a lower cost than the Motorola model, and even allowed for two way communication, which is something that we really wanted. The signals from the monitor don’t interfere with any existing wireless signals, which is also a plus.
We wanted to buy clothes for the baby next, but weren’t sure whether it would be a boy or a girl, so we bought a few unisex items for the baby, and held back on any gender specific colors. We did a comparison on strollers to see which one was the safest for our baby. There have been a lot of stroller recalls in the past few months and in some cases, babies have gotten injured. It would crush us to see something happen to our baby, especially knowing that it could have been prevented with a little bit of research. We did the same level of scrutiny when picking out a crib as we did with the stroller. In some cases, babies can suffocate in their own crib, and the parents wouldn’t even know because they were sleeping too.
