I’m just going to put it out there – my almost three year old has a baby monitor in her bedroom.
Last week we moved Pebble from the ‘baby room’ into her own big girl bedroom, making way for Baby #2 to arrive in March 2013. Of course we kept the baby monitor in the baby room, our big girl wouldn’t be needing that anymore.
But. The first night she was in her new room we were watching TV in the lounge and we only just barely heard her calling out to us. She isn’t the kind of kid who gets out of bed in the night, and we really don’t want her to become one! So… we discussed it, and we went out and bought another baby monitor. A cheapy, on sale for an awesome price, and it does the job.
I feel kinda silly, having a baby monitor in an almost-three year old’s bedroom, in a pretty small house – but we have always done what feels right to us, and this… well, it feels right.
At what age did you stop using a baby monitor with your kids?
