We’ve been in the market for a new baby monitor for quite some time now. We had been using the same old one for Brady that we’d had since the twins were babes and the signal wouldn’t even reach to our front porch. Frustrating! I’d heard amazing things about the lollipop monitor from a few different friends over the past few years so I’m thrilled to finally own one and try it out ourselves. We’ve been using it for the past month now and I’m obsessed!
The monitor was super easy to set up, once you download the app on your phone. You just have to search for the camera on your wifi network, pair it with your phone and you’re all set to go! The bottom of the camera is a flexible silicone stick that you can wrap around the crib or anything really, and it comes with a wall hanger so that you can mount it once the baby is able to reach up and grab it. It’s neat though that you can wrap the monitor around anything in your home if baby is playing or napping in another room.
I’m really impressed with how clear the picture is. I can get such a clear view of Brady that I can actually see him breathing and making little movements which is so reassuring to me, especially if I’m out in the evening while my husband or a sitter is there and I want to check in on him.
A few other great features that we’re loving are the white noise and lullabies it plays, the video recording and snapshot and the two way talk feature! One day last week, my husband tuned in from work when he got a notification on his app that Brady was waking and I could hear him from the kitchen telling Everest (our two year old) through the monitor to stop hitting Brady on the head! Ev was so startled but it worked and I’m thankful he caught that! Now the kids always try and talk back to my husband through the monitor after Brady’s naps. hehe!
Overall, we’re really impressed with this monitor and I would highly recommend it to any parent in the market for a new one!
