Pregnant mothers take care of themselves during gestation knowing that everything that they come upon would affect the tiny baby growing inside them. She would take every precaution to avoid anything that is detrimental to the baby. Part of it would be choosing the appropriate nutrition and activity to ensure the baby’s safety. The mother already loves the unborn child.

After nine long months of waiting, finally a baby is born into this world. Seeing how cumbersome the baby is, the parent’s protective nature is invoked. Any parent would vow to do everything for the baby and would not let anything harm the newborn. She would want to keep an eye on her child 24/7. However, there are a variety of roles that a parent has to perform. She has to divide her time in taking care of the baby and fulfilling her responsibilities to other family members, and most especially to themselves.

Keeping watch of the baby round the clock is simply an impossible feat. Nowadays, the wonder of technology has contributed much to the comfort of mankind.

What are Baby Monitors

Baby monitors are technological device that serve as a pseudo mother who is in vigil at bedside. It is a radio transmitter that release FM (Frequency Modulated) signal most commonly between the ranges of 48,830 to 48,890 MHz. These devices have two components, the transmitter and the receiver. Transmitters are being placed 8-10 feet within the baby or closer if possible.

Sounds coming from the baby are being picked up and a signal is then transmitted to the receiver. On the other hand, receivers are being carried around the house or place somewhere that is accessible to the mother or whoever it is designated to keep watch of the baby. Usually, the transmitter is plugged into a socket from its stationary position while the receiver is battery operated since it could be brought anywhere.

What Baby Monitors Do

Baby monitors generally help mothers oversee the baby without being stuck inside the baby’s room all day. Through this, mothers are able to do what must be done around the house thereby accomplishing a lot. From the time baby monitors have been first released, countless of innovations have been made.

A variety of products not only permits auditory signals to be heard but even allow the mother from the receiver’s end to visualize their baby and play music to soothe the baby even from a distance.

Baby Monitors For Deaf People

personal journals

The sound of a baby crying is definitely one of the most precious things in life that some parents take for granted. The case is different though with a deaf mother or father. Not being able to hear your little one is upsetting enough. What makes matters worst is the fact that a lack of ability to perceive sound can sometimes put your infant’s safety at risk. Luckily, technology has made it possible for manufacturers to create baby monitors for deaf people.

A regular baby monitor alerts parents each time their little bundles of joy need attention. The device usually functions by means of transmitting sound from the baby’s room to a portable receiver that can be conveniently placed inside a pocket or strapped around the waist.

People with excellent hearing can rest assured that their infants’ cries will be heard, even if they’re in another part of the house. These helpful gadgets serve as an extension of a person’s hearing or visual range. Parents who are hard of hearing or deaf also share the same opinion about baby monitors. Even though they put up with a lot of difficulties in caring for their babies, the ounce of reassurance they get from using such devices is more than welcome.

Special Features

Hearing-impaired individuals are definitely faced with two times the challenge of caring for a baby. Aside from making sure that they can provide for their infants’ needs, they also have to deal with the fact that they cannot perceive sounds – not even the cries of their own little ones.

The majority of baby monitors designed for people who have hearing impairments are equipped with a vibrating alarm and/or a flashing light system. These added features alert the deaf parent every time the baby is in need of attention.

A number of products on the market also offer other means of alerting deaf parents to the cries of their infants. One particular product consists of receivers that come in two parts: a main clock and a tiny sound sensor. The main clock functions as the sound-alarm system and is equipped with a vibrating rod attachment that should be positioned under the parents’ mattress. Each time the baby wails, the alarm system triggers the rod to forewarn and awaken the parents.

Some baby monitors even come with LCD screens that allow you to literally watch over your baby. This is especially valuable to deaf parents since what they lack in hearing, they can make up for in visual observation.

Factors To Consider Before Purchasing A Baby Monitor

Buying the most expensive baby monitor on the shelf is not necessarily the best idea that any parent could muster. You have to understand what you really need and determine how to compensate for the capability that you lack without sacrificing anything. Although parting with your hard-earned cash in order to buy a bunch of gadgets can be difficult, having that much-desired peace of mind is still more important than any money in the world.

Portability is also an issue when it comes to shopping for the best baby monitor in town. A receiver that is designed to sit on top of your living room table may not efficiently serve its purpose especially if you’re bound to move around much or even go out of the house.

Despite the fact that baby monitors for deaf people offer a great deal of assistance, the cost-friendly and simple act of keeping an eye on your baby is still your best option. In addition to that, no other gadgets in the world can ever replace the actual presence of a parent.

Internet Advertising – From The Monitor Into Their Heads

personal journals

Internet web site advertising seems to be the Topic of the day. And I thought that instead of ignoring that fact with senseless personal anecdote, I’d give in to greater office pressure and write about it.  I’m nervous, but here we go.  Oh, wait, before I get into that I want to tell you why.  The why part is because normally I’m a little cynical.  When I am supposed to research some topic and I do, I usually fill with a little bit of disgust.  I don’t think that that’s out of line, considering to the things I read. 

But, today as I’m reading about web site advertising I had that familiar tinge of bile backing up in my throat and I was thinking about how I could articulate my inevitable irritation that would inevitably turn into full blown madness.  And then, of all things, this author started making sense.


 Even though he’s talking about web site advertising and I typically have sorts of rage (legitimate or not…probably not) about that particular subject, I started getting down with what this person’s saying.  So, without further delay, I will quickly tell you what I think about all this internet web site advertising deal. 

But, I’ll do it with an anecdote.  But, this time it’s relevant.  We were making a web site for a company I was working with.  We had very little money and the primary financial backer of the project wasn’t too interested in internet advertising.  Finally, he was convinced to get a web site made for us, but on a shoestring budget.  It was fine, but quite low budget and the designer we got did just that, design.  The little work that was put into traffic generation reaped an equal amount of response—a little.  Well, that business has just been sold to a company that has been known to focus intently on the other aspects of internet web site advertising.

 They have gone to great lengths with their previous businesses to develop their site to meet their customer’s needs, utilize various links to bring customers to their site, etc. etc.  I look forward to seeing the remarkable progress that the company will make with their new vision of utilizing internet technology.  I wish them the best, but probably that won’t be necessary.
