How to Get Perfect Baby Shower Gifts Every Time

If you’re a best friend, aunt, uncle, grandma, or grandpa of the new parents, then you may face the pressure of giving the perfect baby shower gifts. The task may be daunting, but don’t fret, we’re here to help! [/vc_column_text]

If you are a best friend or close family member of the expectant parents, you may face the pressure of giving them the best baby shower gifts. Besides, who knows the parents better than those who knew them best, right? But out of the thousands of possible gift combinations out there, it may feel almost impossible to pick the best one. That’s why we’re here to help!
Step 1: Baby Registry
The first place you should always start with the baby registry. The baby registry is where expectant parents create lists of products they want and where to get them. Since parents personally pick and choose what goes onto their baby registry, you can never go wrong with getting a gift from these lists. Baby registries tend to include baby essentials such as car seats, cribs, and baby monitors.

The Ultimate Baby Care System

iBaby Monitors are popular baby registry items because they have exclusive features that make it the ultimate baby care device. These monitors also have air, temperature, and humidity sensors that measure room environment. In addition, the iBaby Monitors are not limited by range. Next time you decide to get one of these on a baby registry, you’ll know you’ve made the right choice.
Baby registries make getting the perfect baby gifts easy as pie. However, if the expectant parents do not have baby registries, or if you believe there may be other gifts they may like, proceed to the next steps.
Step 2: Boy, Girl, or Neutral?
Boy or girl? Cute hair bows or handsome bowties? How about stylish and neutral? These are all incredibly important questions to consider when buying baby shower gifts. The preferences of the parents on this matter will help you figure out the style of the items you want to get.
For example, pinks, purples, bright blues, and pastels are popular girl colors. While greens, blues, black, and browns are more popular for boys. And nowadays, neutral color schemes are becoming more trendy as well. These colors consist of neutral shades of blue, yellow, and gray.

Why it matters…

In the world of baby style and baby stuff, colors and style matter. The expectant parents will prefer to dress their little ones in their favorite styles. They will also choose their favorite colors as a baby nursery theme as well. If you are unsure of their preferences, just ask them what their favorite colors are!

Step 3: What is the Most Important Thing to the Parents?

Every parent has different priorities when it comes to raising their children, whether it be early education or creativity. If they’re all about early education, gifts that emphasize brain development are the way to go! These gifts may include sensory toys, audiobooks, or children’s books. Soft books are incredibly popular. These books have colorful, interactive pages made of cloth, making them incredibly kid friendly.
If you’re aiming to give a gift that boosts creativity find toys that are musical and full of patterns. Infants have highly developed hearing the moment they’re born, allowing them to pick up music and language quickly. Also, babies are unable to see color until they are much older. Thus, bold patterns are more effective than bold colors. Try going for musical mobiles, rattles, and sensory toys for the perfect gift!

Consider this…

Some devices, such as the iBaby Monitor, has features that appeal to both. The two-way audio allows parents to talk to their little one even when they’re away. It even has a music player that allows parents to play music, so babies can rock out to their favorite songs!

Step 4: Who are their favorite childhood characters?

Elements of nostalgia will give you major bonus points when it comes to gifts. Think about it, a mug is just a mug until it has Darth Vader’s head on it, right? The parents are much more likely to love the gift if it reminds them of their childhood. Racecars, Disney, Winnie the Pooh, and Superheros tend to be very popular amongst new parents. So when you’re trying to decide between which color to choose or which blankie to buy for your baby shower gift, think about their favorite characters!

Final thoughts

At the end of the day, those you love will love whatever you give them! Baby shower gifts are something that the new family will cherish for a lifetime. Shopping should be fun and thoughtful, but not stressful. The opportunity to give a gift to a new bundle of joy only comes a few times in a lifetime, so enjoy every bit of it.

Your Wi-Fi Baby Monitor Questions: Answered

iBaby Wi-Fi Baby Monitor

iBaby Monitors are unique for their remote viewing capabilities. What parents love about having a wifi baby monitor its limitless range. Whether parents are downstairs or on a business trip, they can check up on their little ones and send a quick “I love you!”
iBaby Monitors also have a collection of features that many other baby monitors do not have. These features contribute to iBaby’s complete baby care system, including a music player and baby room environment analytics. iBaby’s app-based device allows iBaby to develop baby monitors that go beyond current baby monitoring technology.
Though, because iBaby Monitors are unlike any other, we often get questions about the monitor and its features. In this post, we will tackle common questions from our users.”What is the difference between users and viewers?”
iBaby Monitors support unlimited users, but up to four viewers at a time. Device owners can invite as many users to have access to their iBaby Monitors as they’d like. But only four people or devices can view one monitor at a time.

“Why won’t my baby monitor connect to my Wi-Fi?”

Many household Wi-Fi networks have two different frequencies: 2.4Ghz and 5Ghz. Most Wi-Fi baby monitor devices including most iBaby devices support 2.4Ghz frequency.
However, during the installation process, the monitor may pick up the 5Ghz frequency instead. Most of the time, users can determine the frequency based on the name of their Wi-Fi network. 5Ghz Wi-Fi networks will end with a -5. For example, most households will see ibabywireless and ibabywireless-5 in their wireless network settings.
If this occurs, users simply need to reconnect their smart phone or table to the correct wireless network and begin the installation process again.
After installation, users may change their Wi-Fi settings back to their preferred network.

“What is that clicking sound?”

The clicking sound is coming from the iBaby Monitor’s night vision function. When the camera detects low lighting, it will automatically turn on the infrared night vision. If the clicking sound is bothersome, users may turn off automatic night vision in the app settings.

“Can I connect multiple devices on one app?”

You definitely can! The iBaby Care App is designed to support all iBaby devices on one app (except for the M3/S & M2). You can easily toggle between multiple iBaby Baby Monitors, iBaby Air, and AirSense.

“Can I listen to the monitor even when I’m using another app?”

Yes, the iBaby Care app will run in the background until you close the app. iBaby’s “Listen” function allow users to listen to the baby’s room all night even when the screen is off. Users will get sound/motion alerts as well.

“What is Sleep Mode and when should I activate it?”

Privacy is iBaby’s top priority. While we allow the monitor’s video feed to be shared with other users, we realize there might be times when you want to make sure no one will log in when you need some privacy with the baby. For instance, you might be breastfeeding or changing the baby. For times like that, we created Sleep Mode. To turn in on, go to menu > Settings > Sleep Mode. When Sleep Mode is activated, only the account owner is able to access the video feed, and all invited users will just see black screen.
