Philips Avent for peace of mind – from baby to toddler

Sponsored postby Sarah, editor and reviewerPhilips Avent right tools for your childIt's true that parenting changes your life in ways you never imagined. But, what I have found is that having the right tools for your child's specific needs can make the difference in whether or not you're a stress case or if you're a more laid back parent.

Take lack of sleep for example.

It's a well known peril of parenthood that one must learn to function with significantly less sleep than the pre-baby days. In the early stages, I was up every 1-3 hours with my hungry newborns. But when my youngest started sleeping through the night, we got rid of our faulty baby monitor {that would randomly lose connection and cause me immense stress} and started leaving our bedroom door open to hear her.

And that's when I became a night time worrier. What if I didn't hear her all the way down the hall? What if I slept through her crying when she awoke sick, scared, or in need of a diaper change? I found myself getting up in the wee hours of the morning to check on her.

As you can imagine, it had been a long time since I had experienced a full night's rest. But, this all changed when we started using the Philips AVENT DECT audio baby monitor Philips Avent DECT baby monitor

Essential features you can expect:

  • 100% reliable connection to your baby {no more dropped connections!}
  • LED lights show your unit is linked and in range
  • Sound activated lights show your baby's sound
  • Rechargeable parent unit with up to 18hrs operating time

What's special about this monitor?

  • Peaceful night mode for parents
  • Temperature sensor with customized alert
  • Vibration mode option
  • Comforting nightlight and lullabies
  • Two-way communication so your baby can hear you

I think the two-way communication is a genius option for children who only need to hear mommy or daddy's voice in order to be soothed back to sleep. 

Also, I love how long the charge lasts. This would be the perfect monitor to take along if you're ever out camping or on vacation and away from convenient outlets. It boasts a huge lifespan of up to 18 hours before re-charging is required, which is almost double what other monitors we've tried have offered.

And my baby loves that it plays music and doubles as a night light. You can select one of 5 lullabies and switch on the night light for them at bedtime, helping your baby learn to soothe themselves to sleep and make nighttime a little easier on everyone.

You can enter in the heat range you want your baby's room to stay within and it alerts you when it drops or rises above your settings. Brilliant! It helps me know if it's the kind of night that requires a heater or a fan, and I can rest well knowing my baby is comfortable.

While getting more restful sleep is definitely an amazing thing, there's one more Philips AVENT item that makes me incredibly happy. Introducing the Natural Drinking Cup from AVENT, the no-spill cup that actually helps teach your child how to drink from a regular cup! Philips Avent Natural Drinking CupThey say the tiny things make the biggest difference and there was always one tiny detail I detested most about toddlerhood: the dreaded sippy cup. They have a million parts, they leak, and worst yet, they actually make it harder to teach your child how to drink from a cup when you're ready to transition.

But, Philips AVENT solved all of those problems and more with the introduction of the Natural Drinking Cup. Why am I so excited about a sippy cup, you ask? Because it allows you to drink from anywhere around the rim of the cup, just like a traditional glass, but it only releases liquid if it has pressure on the inner core of the lid. Crazy, but true!

That means it won't spill if tipped on the white living room couch, but it makes it easy for your kiddo to drink like a big kid. Okay, so I don't really have a white living room couch, but I still don't want to sit in a puddle of spilled juice, milk, or water.Philips Avent Natural Drinking CupsTo take it with you, you simply slip on the protective cover and you're ready to go. Seriously, I wish that they had these toddler cups in grown up sizes without the handles, because this would be an amazing car cup not just for my big kids but also for hubby and I on road trips.
