A good baby monitor will allow you to step away from your child to complete tasks while still being able to see or hear your little one wake up. There are some that come with a video screen and some work with your smartphone and are Alexa/ Google home enabled.

To a baby, almost everything is a snack. Keeping your floor clean can stop them from putting dirt, dust, and small objects in their mouths that could potentially cause them to choke. We recommend wall mounted single shelves installed at 5 ft or above from floor for all your storage as much as possible. This can be a project during your pregnancy.
