I am so excited since my best friend is pregnant! Even though she is a super smart and competent lady, she was feeling extremely overwhelmed when it came to her baby registry. We decided a little brunch/Babies R Us date was in order. These days there is SO much stuff available for babies, I totally understand why she was feeling anxiety about the whole thing. (and to be honest, there was tons of new items I hadn’t even heard of there… and my youngest is only 2 and a 1/2… so it hasn’t been THAT long)

A huge choice we discussed was what kind of baby monitor she should get. I think a baby monitor is super important and I relied heavily on mine.
(especially with Mila since we we live in a split-floor plan so I wanted
to see and hear her at all times!) I used my monitor constantly for
about 2 years… so I tell everyone it is a good idea to invest in a
When looking for a monitor, first think about your needs:
- Do you need video? Or will audio only do?
- Do you want access to the camera while you are out of the home?
- Do you need more than one camera or receiver?
When the makers of WiFi Baby reached out to me, I was like, “What the heck is this?” A baby monitor that you can stream through your phone and computer? How COOL!! Even though my kids don’t need a monitor anymore, I totally jumped at the chance to review this since I wanted to see if it really worked… and (if it did) what an awesome thing to give to my bestie?!
The WiFi Baby monitor is wireless and you can watch it anywhere… by downloading the app. So it is not only a baby monitor, it can also be used as a nanny cam to see what is going on at home while you are away. As a working mom, I would have loved to have watched my baby from my phone or computer at work!
Also, this eliminates the issue of going too far “out of range” from where the monitor is. For example, if I would let the dog out in the backyard while Mila was napping, I would lose her picture… since I ventured too far away!
They just came out with WiFi Baby 4, with tons of new features:
- FREE iOS app | Updated Android app
- HD video, a 35% wider view (vs. WiFi Baby 3)
- Apple Watch audio alerts
- Improved night vision
- Streams in HD to Apple TV, Android TV, Chromecast, Roku, Fire TV
The camera was really easy for my husband to set up, it took just a few minutes. However, they offer free Pro Setup Support. If you have any issues with your device, they make it really easy to get a hold of someone quickly! (days, nights, weekends… whenever!) You simply fill out a form online with your issue and someone will contact you shortly to help you fix the issue!
You can add the camera to as many devices as you want, by downloading the app and adding your info. I set my app up while I was home, so it scanned and found my specific device right away. In minutes, I could see & hear my kids! We tested it on our computer as well, each device comes with your own URL info that no one else will have. WiFi Baby takes your privacy seriously, and they have some heavy-duty security measures in place to make sure no one else can see what is on your monitor! Read more about their privacy measures here.
We set our camera up really high, so we could see our entire kitchen & living area… since we wanted to use it as a security camera. I could see & hear the kids perfectly, even though they were pretty far away. We also enjoyed spying on our dog while we were both at work (which is why we named it “Punky Cam.”)

My husband and I were both super impressed with the sound & picture quality. This monitor rocks! It has awesome features, and you can use it as a security camera when you no longer need a baby monitor. If you or a friend you know is pregnant, check out WiFi Baby!
|LOVE her baby bump!|
Stay tuned for more posts on my sweet pregnant bestie! We have lots of fun planned for this mom-to-be and I will be blogging all about it.
