Raising a child in this day and age is so different than it was even a few years ago. There are so many gadgets out there designed to help with child rearing, to the point where technology has been injected into nearly every aspect of a baby’s life. Of course, our parents didn’t even have 5% of the gadgets we have when they raised us, and somehow they still managed. But just like any other popular area of the consumer electronics industry, companies continue to flood the market with more and more devices in an attempt to get in on the action.

If we’re being honest, most of the stuff out there is completely unnecessary despite what you might read from some mommy blogger who’s writing about a new device just to get a free review unit. But there are certain devices that really are absolutely necessary for new parents, and the booming baby industry can make finding the right product incredibly difficult since there’s just so much out there.

A good baby monitor is obviously a must-have, and you’re in luck because we’ve done all of the legwork for you. Check out the Motorola MBP845Connect Video Baby Monitor with Wi-Fi, which is on sale on Amazon right now.

First, some key features from the product listing:

  • Wireless Technology: 2.4 GHz FHSS (for Local Viewing) Wireless Connectivity (for Remote Viewing) – Requires wireless connection to the internet and a compatible viewing device.
  • 5-Inch Diagonal Color Screen with Digital Zoom, Two-Way Communication, Room Temperature Display, Infrared Night Vision, and High

The large 5-inch color display gives you a crystal clear view of your baby when you’re near the base unit, or you can stream in 720p HD to any iPhone, iPad or Android device using the Hubble Connected app while you move around the house. And it plays lullabies… how great it that!?

Here’s just a small taste of what people are saying about the Motorola MBP845Connect:

“This is by far the best gift I received off of my registry. I always thought that the two way radio was all i needed and boy can i say i was wrong. This needs to be on every registry this camera is a god send. I didn’t know important a video monitor was. Especially being a first time mom you want to keep watch on your little one at all times.”

“It has a crystal clear image and the night vision is amazing. I use it every day for his naps and it’s on all night till 7 am so I can wake up and check up on his without going to the crib. I love the ease of use features It offers like zoom and the speaker function is very loud.”

“Our God – daughter’s mom loved it. She told me about she took the monitor into the kitchen morning to do dishes when she accidentally dropped the monitor into the sink. Immediately she dried it off. She was worried it was going to malfunction but fortunately it still works as good as it did when she first opened it. I’m not saying it’s water proof but it’s definitely a sturdy gem!”

“The picture is super clear whether it’s day or night. I love that I can move the camera from the parent unit. I can even talk to my baby from the parent unit. I can also add other cameras if I wanted to later on down the road.”

“I love how I can change the angle of the camera at the push of the button. The screen monitor is great to carry around for when I need to put the little guy on the crib and run and do a load of laundry or go to the bathroom I just bring the screen monitor with me and can see and hear everything as well as talk into it to soothe baby till I get back to the crib. By far the best gift I received.”

Trust us, there’s plenty more where that came from. If you’re in the market for a new baby monitor, your search is now over.
