Sending the kids off to Grandma’s house for the weekend is a great way to get some couples time R&R or to catch up on housekeeping, but only if you have peace of mind knowing your children are safe and sound.
Grandparents always mean best, but sometimes it’s helpful to plan ahead to keep toddlers safe at Grandma’s house. Moms know that toddlers and preschoolers can create mischief in the most unlikely places. Safety first! **Tip-off –> Mega parenting must-have giveaway below!!
Packing a few extras in the kids’ overnight bag can help prevent accidents while they’re baking cookies and otherwise being spoiled while at Granny’s place.
One: Electrical Outlet Plugs
We always have a few extra socket protectors stored away for weekend trips and overnight visits. Just pop these into the electrical sockets in bedroom where your toddler will be sleeping and rest assured that little fingers won’t be learning their first science lessons on electricity.
Two: Booster Seats
If your child still uses a high chair or booster seat at the dinner table, bring it along. Having your tot strapped into a booster will allow Grandma time to set the table without chasing little Johnny all around the kitchen. Sitting your child on a pillow at the dining table can’t work that same “no-escape” magic that your booster seat can. Rack up bonus points with the grandparents if you pack a coloring book or water painting book too. These are great boredom busters for the time tots spend sitting in their booster waiting for the meal to be served.
Three: Baby Monitor
Until recently, I’d never known the beauty of having a baby monitor. Levana recently invited me to review the Keera™ PTZ Baby Video Monitor, which includes a handheld wireless monitor and two nightvision cameras with two-way intercoms.
Video baby monitors aren’t just for newborns, folks- they’re like having security cameras in your child’s room to keep toddlers out of harm’s way and from getting into trouble. With you (or Grandma, in this case) at the helm, you can make sure your toddlers are napping safely by watching them on the video monitor and listening to that sweet, sweet silence over the intercom. The Keera monitor cameras even have a nightvision feature for up to 12 feet. Let’s just say my husband is having waaay too much fun learning about all the features of this monitor. What is it about men and
toys technology? I must admit, before testing out this baby monitor, I never saw the point in having one. Now that we’ve got one that’s so user-friendly, I’m a believer and would definitely recommend this monitor to any parent looking for a top-notch baby (and toddler!) monitoring system.
Now you can do more, even take weekend vacations, confident that your children are safe under the watchful eye of Grandma and her Levana monitor.
Here are some of the (many) features of the Keera by Levana.
- Two cameras with pan/tilt zoom heads; view baby in two rooms!
- LED night-vision up to 12 feet
- Lullaby music option
- Two-way intercom communication
- Wall mounts
- Record video or take photos of the live stream
- 24 hour battery
- Touch panel menu controls (with a menu-lock feature!)
Now the fun part…
WIN your own Keera baby monitor!
