For many parents it’s not an option to stay at home while your child is an infant or toddler. Returning to work after maternity leave is required to pay the bills. It can be a difficult choice to make when all you want is to spend time with your child, but you’re stuck at work. One possible solution to your dilemma is to purchase the best baby monitor, so you can monitor both your child and your nanny while they’re at home.

Everyone’s heard horror stories about terrible nannies, though they are the exception, rather than the rule. If something goes wrong at home, your infant or toddler may be too young to speak and tell you that something’s awry. They’re too young to tell you they don’t like the nanny, or the nanny has been watching TV all day and ignoring them. Fortunately most nannies come with excellent references and are quite capable in their childcare career choices. Still, your mind would be at ease if you could check on your child from your iPhone 6.

I bought the Dropcam Pro Wi-Fi Wireless Video baby Monitor so I can monitor my child and my nanny while I’m at work. The Dropcam monitoring camera is quite classy and cool! I searched for some time to find the best monitor and based on the Amazon reviews chose the Dropcam.

How the Dropcam works is that you set up the baby monitor in a room of your home where your child spends most of their time, such as the bedroom or the living room. You then install the Dropcam app on your iPhone 6 and log in. You have two ways to view streaming video. You can watch live streaming video from your iPhone to see what’s happening in your home, or you can sign up for a monthly subscription service, which will store video for up a month.

The Dropcam provides stunning full color video and works through WiFi. Video streaming is less than a minute real time. There’s even night vision, so you don’t have to leave a light on and disturb your child’s sleep.

One really cool feature of the Dropcam is that you get to watch your child, even when you’re not at home to spend time with them. So, if they do something really cute, your nanny can give you a call to tell you to log in to watch. You can even take screen snapshots of the video as a keepsake. If you have the monthly subscription plan you can review footage at your leisure and even keep video clips of the highlights of your child’s day. While you may feel like you’re missing out on your child’s early years, you’ll still be able to catch the highlights from the baby monitor.

The best way to monitor your nanny with your child is with the Dropcam baby monitor. It’s not only a great way to capture images and video of your child’s early years, it’s also the best way to keep tabs on your child as well.

Winter is just around the corner…. Are you afraid of being trapped inside the house until the winter is gone? Cheer up and take advantage of this beautiful season! Here are some outdoor activities you must try in order to have a wonderful winter!

Skating on ice

Spend quality time with your family and friends! Try to learn how to skate on ice. It’s not as hard as some describe it. Be confident, keep your balance and remember this: every time you fall, you have to get up and continue practicing.

Tip: Don’t look down, this might affect your balance. Also, make sure to warm up your muscles before ice skating!

Skiing

Have you ever wanted to fly? Try skiing. Climb on a mountain and then slide down. The sun rays will caress you while you are enjoying yourself.
Tip : The sun, wind and cold can affect your skin. Use some sun screen before you go skiing. In this way, you will prevent sun burn and hydrate your skin, keeping it safe from the cold.

Snowboarding

Snowboarding is a fantastic activity you must try this winter. It might be difficult in the beginning, but after you understand how to keep your balance and get the hang of it ,you will definitely adore it! It surely is worth it!
Tip : Warm up before you go snowboarding! In the same time, make sure not to push yourself too hard if you are tired and do tricks right from the beginning. Practice makes perfect!

Sledding

Sledding is fun at every age! Remember the time when you were little and stood outside no matter how cold it was? Sledding will take you back in time, making you feel the same joy and excitement you felt in your sweet childhood years. This is a must try!
Tip: Select a hill that is not very steep and which has a long and flat area at the bottom to prevent the injuries. Be careful and you will have fun, smile and laugh from the bottom of your heart!

Build a snowman or a fort to have a snowball fight with your friends or family. You can also make a winter bonfire to warm up and tell stories with your loved ones. Make sure to take photos to remember these beautiful moments later on!

Tip: You can build the best snow fort by using moist packing snow( not a powder-like one). In this way, you can make better blocks, construct the perfect defence and be safe from any kind of attack with snowballs your friends might assault you with!
