A baby monitor is one of those standard items that most parents receive during baby showers or soon after the infant arrives. Philips AVENT is a trusted brand that has been around for 30 years, so I was anxious to check out their Audio Baby Monitor for my cousin’s child, Baby J.
The Philips AVENT Audio Baby Monitor is a modern upgrade on a classic piece of equipment found in almost every nursery. I brought it over to Grandma’s house to investigate a little further, and it got enthusiastic reviews from the whole family, including my aunt and Grandma, who called it “Amazing”. Given that Grandma has literally decades of experience with babies, she knows a thing or two about baby products and how they’ve changed over the years; an endorsement from her tells me this is a truly quality piece of equipment!
So, what makes this an improvement over older models? For starters, this can be used in any room – Baby J’s old monitor was stationary. This can be carried around with you, so you’re not tethered; it can even be taken outside – it has a range of up to 330 meters, depending on surroundings.
The Philips AVENT Audio Baby Monitor also has an array of other features including two way communication, so your baby can hear you talking back to them. It also includes a temperature readout, so you can keep an eye on how warm or cool baby’s room is.
The Audio Baby Monitor also comes complete with data encryption, alleviating another modern problem: Remember that episode of Modern Family where the baby monitor was picking up conversations from the neighbor’s monitor? Well, you won’t have to worry about that with the DECT technology on this unit.
Some items never go out of style; The Philips AVENT Audio Baby Monitor is a great example of a classic product that has adapted to present-day needs and incorporated helpful new features as technology improves. It has a suggested retail price of $149.99 and is available at retailers such as Walmart, Babies “R” Us and Amazon.com.
