If you have a baby and child in your house, you may find yourself constantly monitoring them with a baby monitor. In the summer time, however, it can be really hard to hear your little one over the noise of people outside. Here is some helpful advice for how to talk on a summer baby monitor.
This blog post will provide information about different ways you can talk or communicate with your child without being heard by other people nearby (including how many inches away from your baby’s ear each sound should be coming from).
It will also include an article about how to set up a wireless camera baby monitor so that you can hear your baby clearly no matter where they may be.
How to talk on a summer baby monitor?
Methods for talking to your child:
- What room? Why, the infant room! Obviously. Talk from the couch so that you don’t hit those cords with your voice (or whatever it is sound travels through).
- Closer to your infant. I would suggest talking from two to four inches away from the side of your baby’s crib or playpen that has the fabric hanging down. If you are using a wireless baby monitor, make sure that you are at least five feet away from the crib.
- Are babies afraid of the dark? Yes, yes they are. It is hard not to be when there is a potentially malevolent world just outside your window and underneath your back door.
- We have a good friend who has one of those “talking to baby” jingle things. He distinctly remembers getting it for his twins, not using it, and hearing his son scream and yell because he thought that the sound was being played by some psycho with a live microphone.
- Talk from the doorway or closet as you walk in or out of the room.
- Get a baby monitor that works with distance. This is just a neat science trick, but if you get a baby monitor that can communicate with itself from rooms away, then you can have your partner talk to the baby from the couch while you are in the kitchen.
- What to do for fun? How about taking your child outside on nice days and letting them play in the sand or the grass.
