10 Gadgets for Parents and Their Newborn


Portable Video Monitors

If you'd like to keep a constant eye on your slumbering babe, pick up a portable video monitor.

Unlike regular baby monitors, which typically feature cheap, one-way walkie-talkies that will only alert you when your little one starts wailing, portable video monitors let you check up on your baby wherever you are in the house. Screens often include speakers, ensuring that you'll know the second your baby needs anything, even if your eyes are temporarily diverted. Many units come with two cameras, which is great for multiples or if you'd just like an extra viewing angle on that solo bundle of joy.
