One of the most important baby products you can buy is a good baby monitor. The best baby monitor is reliable, provides a clear image and sound, and is easy to install and use. 4K HD video doesn’t mean much if you can’t figure out how to turn the camera on! We targeted the four best baby monitors on the market, and came up with our favorite, and some pros and cons for each monitor we tested.
4Moms was founded in 2006 by, of all people, two men, Henry Thorne and Robert Daley. Since then, 4Moms has been making tech-based, everyday-use baby products for infants, toddlers, and Pre-K children. The company began with the intention of making robotics-based baby products. While many of their 4Moms products still incorporate a lot of tech features, most of their current lineup of products revolve around more standard, practical items.
Until you use a formula dispenser, you probably think it’s one of those “baby things” that you can do without. After all, mixing your formula with water isn’t nearly the hardest thing on your to-do list when you have a baby to look after. The thing is, once you actually use the dispenser and see how much easier it makes feeding, you will wonder how moms and dads can do without it if they feed their babies formula. The best formula dispenser is a close race between Gerber Babynes and Baby Brezza.
Most moms and dads prefer well-known, name brand baby diapers like Pampers or Huggies for their babies, but Babyganics is making waves thanks to their good-for-the-environment diapers. I’ve used some of Babyganics’ other products, like their bubble bath and detergent, but wanted to see if their Babyganics Ultra Absorbent Diapers lived up to some of the reviews I’d read online. I asked some of my mom friends to try a variety of sizes with their kids and give their opinions.
Today, BOB strollers are some of the most popular running and jogging strollers on the market. But did you know that the company was actually founded with the idea of making bike trailers? While it had some early success with the bike trailers, the company ultimately pivoted to the baby stroller market, and the rest is history. Today, BOB strollers are among the most popular in the country, and control a large share of the tens of thousands of strollers sold in the U.S. each year.
Not too long ago, having a baby monitor meant placing a static-producing, one-way audio monitor on your nightstand and tried to pick out baby noise vs. the white noise that would scratch out of the speaker all night. Then, video was introduced, and parents were able to see their baby’s movement and listen in, but even those would be faulty from time to time.
