When it came to the nursery, clothing, baby gear, even our sons name, I picked it! I just filled my husband in along the way and made him like what I liked. I researched and picked the flashiest and best quality pieces. I guess you could say I am a bit of a baby gear snob.
When it was time to shop for a baby monitor I didn't think we needed one but my husband did. So, I passed this ONE job along to him. He was thrilled — until I sent back every monitor he purchased for one reason or another. The quality was poor at night, too expensive or too cheap, the monitor took too long to load or the actual camera in the nursery was big and bulky and took away from my cute design I had worked so hard at. We had both given up on a monitor all together.
Then, I found the Lollipop Smart Baby Monitor. Game Changer! I squealed when I opened the box and saw the adorable turquoise camera. I quickly downloaded the app and set the camera up. I had it all done in minutes while I was breastfeeding.
The app is very user friendly. The best part about the app is that my husband can login while he is at work and see our baby. I’m also headed back to work in a few weeks and feel relieved knowing I can pop open the app and see my little one too. Additional “viewers” can either login under my account or I can send them an invitation email and they can create an account. Some people worry about their baby monitors being connected to wifi because others can hack in and view their baby. The Lollipop app shows you when anyone else is viewing your baby live. This technology is amazing to me because I can see if Dad, Grandma or anyone else is viewing the baby. This extra security is wonderful to have and I think will ease a lot of parents worries when it comes to hacking into their wifi baby monitor.
The monitor easily adjusts to view most of the nursery and can zoom in for a closer look at baby. It’s a wonderful feature! The quality is so great that I can see my babies chest rising up and down with each breath or sucking away on his pacifier.
I can set the app to alert me when baby is crying with push notifications. This can also be adjusted to hear every squeak baby makes or only alert once there is crying. I can view live video from my iPhone or set to “night mode” and only play sound. There are just so many options!
The great thing about Lollipop is you can attach it easily to anything! The bendable arm allows you to set it on a shelf, wrap it around the crib and right now I have mine attached on the bassinet. It’s simple to move from room to room. You simply plug it in, adjust it for the view you want and secure the wires and you’re done! Lollipop also comes with an adorable wall mount for once baby is staying put in the crib.
Now let’s talk about the picture quality. Amazing, AMAZING, AAMMAZZIINNGG!!! Not only is the quality picture perfect during the day when there is plenty of light, but I can see everything at night too when our room is completely black. I find myself taking screen shots all the time of my little one sleeping or cooing in his bassinet.
Other features includes two way microphone, music, picture of the day, data history and if you purchase the addition sensor you have access to temperature, air quality, bluetooth and more.
Lollipop comes in pistachio and cotton candy and turquoise (as shown.) This is hands down the best and most adorable baby monitor on the market!
