Evoz Baby Smart Parenting Monitor Takes Baby Monitors to the Next Level

Technology has transformed the way we monitor our babies, even allowing us in some cases to watch our children from anywhere in the world via smart phone or tablet.  But there is nothing on the market today that offers a host of “connected services” giving parents access to real sleep coaches, collect baby’s sleep habits AND even send cry alerts to your phone until now… and we need your help to get the word out to your community!

GIFT GUIDE: New Baby, New Mama

GIFT GUIDE: New Baby, New Mama

I remember it all like it was yesterday: the Google searching, the book reading, the asking for recommendations, the dreaming of all the fancy pants items that celebrities have for their kids, as I cradled my baby bump and selected item after nonsensical item on my registry. My baby shower was just gorgeous and I was fortunate enough to receive TONS of stuff for my baby boy (the luckiest boy in the world). Fast Forward … Read entire article »
