Lorex Video Baby Monitor Giveaway


Lorex Video Baby Monitor Giveaway

I am so THRILLED about this giveaway and have been for awhile now!  A couple months back, Lorex agreed to let me reivew their new Lorex BB2411 2.4-Inch Sweet Peek Video Baby Monitor with IR Night Vision and Zoom (White).

I didn’t have a video monitor with my first daughter.  I got mixed feedback when talking with moms when I made my baby registry the first time around.  I guess because I’m generally a practical person, I didn’t think having the video part to the monitor was a necessity, especially since I had good mom friends who agreed with me.  So we’ve lived with and gotten by with just a sound monitor.

BUT, now that I have one for my second daughter, I’d tell every mom I know, that it’s totally worth getting the extra bonus feature of the video screen for a baby monitor!!

Here’s why:

1.  Well the most obvious is that I can SEE my baby, and not just listen.  I can  now tell if she just lost her pacifier and is crying, or she still has it and probably has a gas bubble, or is kind of sleeping, but moving, etc.  When I think back to my first daughter, I would have loved it so I could have caught her in time when she was making awful teeth marks, while chewing on her crib side!

2.  PLUS, this monitor has a two way talk feature.  It has been SO convenient to talk to my husband or vise versa about what to do with Molly if she’s not settling down.  Most of the time this conversation happens in the evening when my husband and I are desperately trying to get some kid free relaxation time in.  One of us attends to Molly if she starts crying, which is 2 floors up from our family room (our relaxation room).  We can then decide if whoever lost the coin toss is staying up in our room to settle her down, or bringing her down to the family room with us to feed her.

Back to when my older daughter was chewing on her crib, I would have loved a little button that would talk to her and tell her “NO!”

Plus I’ll love it when Molly is old enough to try and crawl out of the crib – I can again address the situation before stomping into her bedroom.  🙂

3.  There is also a temperature sensor on it.  During these hot summer nights, we have been adjusting how much or how little to cover Molly up, or whether we need the AC on, or just a fan pointing her way. During her nap time in the afternoon, the temperature gradually increases, so I can keep track of when I need to again adjust the fan or AC.

4.  This monitor also comes with crystal clear night vision, and a lullaby button if your baby settles down with music.

**When you first get the monitor, put the camera and screen near each other while they are on.  You’ll get some fun Star Trek sounding feedback – very amusing for a 4 year old!  🙂

 Right now Molly is sleeping in a pack-n-play bassinet, so we just have the video camera mounted above her head.  I actually just used a Command Hook double sided sticker to keep it on there.  When Molly moves to the crib in a few months, then we will have a more permanent mounting of it on the wall (which it comes with hardware to do so.)

 So yes, we do right now just get to see the back of her head the way the camera is set up – but we still love being able to see even from this angle!


I grabbed this image off of the Lorex Baby Facebook page.  It is a nice summery of the features the monitor display has on it.  (hint:  you should just like the Lorex Facebook page while you are there – you’ll need to to enter the giveaway anyway!:)

To sum up, I can’t find anything bad about this product.  I would and will tell all of my expecting friends to get one!  If you don’t win this giveaway, you can get one on sale at Amazon right now for $99, down from $179.99!  That is one of the best prices I’ve seen for a video monitor!

  30. I wandered onto your blog today and I’m so excited to enter your giveaway. How fun! It would be a great thing to have with our 3rd baby on the way.

  31. I would love it for my daughter who doesn’t have one but has a little baby..! Thanks!

  32. We do not have a monitor yet..our little one is in a bassinet in our room. But next month he will be in his own room and we will be needing a baby monitor.

  33. Hello there people, I am somewhat of a lavatory theme addict.

    I don’t usually write posts but I had been discovering this website and so I really liked it. It provides some sincerely good ideas for me to process. I have to mention, I’ve ended up lonesome fairly recently simply because my best friend is
    no longer with me. Browsing on the net gives me a little piece of
    mind . I would personally like to thank you with this big online
    write-up which probably helps to extend the message on lavatory designs even more!
    I was thinking about if you have got an e-mail list so I can
    keep up-to-date on this site.

  34. […] Ending on: 08/07/2013 Open to: United States Enter this Giveaway at Happy Deal Happy Day […]

  35. I would love this for much needed peace of mind…it’s scary to leave babies alone in a room nowadays 🙁

  36. My daughter sleep walks sometimes, so this monitor would be perfect to check in on her to make sure she’s safe, without waking her up by opening her door.

  37. I want to win this as my 2 year old and our new baby will soon be sharing a room, and this would be a great way to keep an eye on them and also ensure my 2 year old is behaving!

  38. I have to admit… I never saw much use in a video monitor, expecting they were just for anxious parents who wanted to make sure their baby was still breathing. I can’t say I have ever given it much more thought! Now I can see the value in being able to see without opening the door (especially with a noisy door!). The ability to check if baby is sleeping yet, without the risk of getting them wound up again. I am currently caring for my 4th beautiful baby, who is almost six weeks. With three other kids I am busy, and tight on funds, and would love to win this monitor to help me keep tabs on baby while living the busy hands on life of a homeschool mom.

  39. I would love to win this because nearly 16 years ago I lost a little boy when he was 4 months old to SIDS. Now I have a 4 year old and a 5 week old baby. This monitor would put me so much more at ease when I’m not in the room with my baby.

  40. I also didn’t have a video monitor with my first but definitely see the need for it now with my 2nd on the way. Plus, I like the idea of having a video monitor in my 1st child’s room when she has friend’s over to play so I don’t have to run up and check on them all the time (they get to feel more independent and I have my fears quelled). 🙂

  41. I would love to win this monitor because it will give me so much peace of mind after my baby is born this fall 🙂

  42. I know someone who is going to be a first time mommy and I want to be able to give her something great like this!

  43. I would love to win this amazing baby monitor for my cousin who just had a baby boy two weeks ago!

  44. My brother and his wife are having a baby this December and this would be a wonderful gift!

  45. would love to win this! even though I am on my fourth baby , it would be great , have always just used the sound one but this would be so much better! especially because for some reason this baby cries a lot in his sleep ! and would love to see him to make sure he is ok …..(with out running up stairs all the time which makes him wake up! )

  46. I’m slow with these things and hope that i’m entering correctly! :p My husband asked me to register for one of these at our baby shower and i didnt and feel awful bc he can’t hear out of his left ear and says he can’t hear the monitor we have! I’m so mean I wish I would’ve thought about thay before :p

  47. This would be great for my son. He is going to be moving up to a toddler bed and this would be a great way to monitor his progress

  48. We just started letting our son sleep in his own room and I would feel much better if I could keep an eye on him during the night.

  49. I signed up to receive a daily e-mail newsletter from Happy Deal – Happy Day (nurse_mommy(at)live(dot)com)

  50. It would be nice to have so I can be downstairs and not have to worry about my son being upstairs sleeping

  51. Id love to win this monitor because i have twin baby girls, it would be so nice to have a video monitor to keep an eye on them.

  52. We’ll be adopting this year sometime and I would LOVE to have one of these. My current monitor is about 8 years old and tends to pick up nearby truckers! 🙂

  53. because my cousin is a first time mom and this would help her feel comfortable leaving the baby asleep

    comment to support you.

  56. […] Lorex BB2411 2.4″ Sweet Peek Video Baby Monitor with IR Night Vision and Zoom, White – This is the model I used.  I loved the video feature – especially the night vision option.  It tells me the room temperature too!  As my little ones got older, the 2-way talk audio has been very helpful. I can tell my sneaky toddler to get back into bed when she climbs out during nap time!  You can read my full review of this product over here! […]
