Samsung SEW-3035 Wireless Monitoring System, Review and competition

April 24, 2012 at 3:51 pm | Posted in competition, guide, information, product information, Uncategorized | 5 Comments

I was given a Samsung SEW-3035 baby monitor to review. This is a top of the range wireless video monitor with many features. I was also given two baby blankets to give away to my blog readers, more details about this below.

Samsung SEW-3035 Wireless Monitoring System

I’m usually a person who buys products which suit my needs and rarely go for top-of-the-range products, and if I’m honest I never really saw the advantages of having a video monitor. I believe I am converted now. Watching my baby sleep is an absolute pleasure and I was even able to do some recordings. I never before realised just how long he was awake before he started to move or make a noise. The first night this monitor was installed I was transfixed to the screen. The novelty did wear off, but I always felt more comforted being able to see my baby all the time.

The first thing I noticed was how easy it was to set up. The package even gives you a template to use when attaching the camera to the wall. I did not attach the camera as I wanted to test it from different positions in the room. The picture on the monitor screen was very clear. You can even view it through a computer or television, although the picture loses a little of its quality the bigger you view it.

At night the picture is black and white. We use a lamp in the bedroom but tried it with the lamp off and the room in complete darkness and couldn’t really tell the difference. During the daylight pictures are viewed in full colour. You can also zoom in on your baby for a closer look, and you can turn the on the night light on the camera by a switch on the monitor.

The Samsung SEW-3035 monitor is wireless and can be taken from room to room. It has its own handy little stand or a clip to attach it to your belt or clothing. The charge last for several hours and bleeps when the charge is running low, then you need to plug it in. The camera can also be used with batteries for complete portability.

There is a two way audio between the monitor and the camera so you can speak to your baby, sometimes a few words of comfort is all they need to help them settle back to sleep or stop the tears.

A really nice feature is the ability to record what the camera sees by a button on the monitor. You can record manually or set it to record automatically when it detects movement. You need a micro SD card, which is not supplied, to be able to use this function. I used one from an old phone. You can also use the monitor on your pc to send videos to friends and family through your Skype or MSN account.

The Samsung SEW-3035 Monitor can be used with up to four cameras which can be purchased separately.

Another feature is the temperature settings; the temperature of the room is picked up by the camera and displayed on the monitor. You can set an alarm to let you know if this temperature gets too hot or too cold.

In summary I found the Samsung SEW-3035 monitor easy to use and it looks smart. The screen is clear and gives a good picture in both colour and black and white. The sound quality is good and can be adjusted. It has many features which are all quite simple to use.

The innovative Samsung SEW-3035 wireless baby monitoring system is available now in the UK with an RRP of £149.

I have two Samsung travel blankets to give away. They are chocolate colour and are soft and cosy for baby. The blankets fold and pack away not a leather pouch when not in use and they can then be hung from a pram.  They are the perfect addition to any holiday and will ensure that baby travels in the utmost of comfort. Worth £19.99

The competition is now closed, congratulations to the winners, Sarah and Donna.

Why Choose Organic Clothing for Your Baby?

Why Choose Organic Baby Clothing?

Did you know that cotton is one of the most clinically treated fibres in the world?

Did you also know that a baby’s skin is five times thinner than an adults and we are capable of absorbing up to 60% of what goes against our skin?

This makes a baby more susceptable to the absorption of harmful toxins to its body.

Organic cotton farming does not use synthetic pesticides or herbicides.

Organic cotton production does not use chemical defoliation.

All organic products manufactured using organic cotton are also checked and certified by bodies such as the Soil Association.

Organic cotton feels softer, smells cleaner and is not finished with fomaldehyde. It is less likely to trigger allergies through the absence of harmful chemicals and is really kind to eczema.

So by buying organic baby clothing you are providing your baby with the healthiest, softest clothing you could possible buy and helping the environment as well.
At Bump to Bundle we have recently introduced a gorgeous range of organic baby clothing from Green Nippers. Using natural dyes they are colourful and fashionable as well as soft and safe for babies skin. The baby grows are suitable for everyday wear and because they have no tight waistbands they are also kind to babies tummies, especially those that suffer from reflux and colic. We also have bibs, booties and hats to co-ordinate. The current range is for 0-12 months but the new range of clothing from 0-5 years is due out in August.

Special offer for Blog readers, take a 10% discount on all Green Nipper products by using code GN10 at checkout.

Today I’d just like to talk a little about what Bump To Bundle is all about. As an online shop we wanted to offer a useful service along with something a little different. So along the line of babywear, accessories and gifts we came up with a selection of neccessary items along with a selection of more unique items.

The necessary items are the clothing and accessories and the unique fall under the gifts. With the clothing we look at affordable quality babywear, usually imported from European countries. We love organic clothing and have a small range already and are now filling the shop with a brand new organic range which we have been lucky to source. The accessories range from slings and playmats to buggy clips and changing bags. We are proud to stock the Hippy Chick Hipseat child carrier and the portable highchair the Totseat, as well as the resourceful nursing cushion (which is so much more than a nursing cushion) the Widgey. We also offer real nappies from Harry’s Cot, sleepbags, blankets, books and cds.

We have a lovely range of toys for all ages, from baby comforters to children’s construction kits. We have  a wonderful selection of Moover wooden toys and many familiar names like The Very Hungry Caterpillar and Peter Rabbit.

Our unique gifts currently include handmade bracelets, nursing necklaces, door plaques and wooden personalised gifts. All made to order, all unique.

We’ve had some lovely feedback particularly about our quick delivery service. We do like to allow 3-7 days for delivery but we try to get orders processed as quickly as we can. Others have praised our website and said how easy it is to use, we do keep it updated as often as possible and are always striving to keep it tidy so our customers can find what they need easily.

Painkillers Dangerous for Teething Babies

Painkillers dangerous for teething babiesIt’s common practice for some mommies to rub Anbesol or Orajel on their babies sore gums when they’re teething. But The U.S. Food and Drug Administration is warning that an ingredient in these pain relievers is linked to a serious illness……………read more

This recent article states that  teething gels can cause serious illness to babies due to them containing benzocaine, a topical anaesthetic.

Personally, I do not believe that there would be a sufficient amount of benzocaine in any product meant for babies or small children to actually cause harm. These products have been around for many many years. There is always a risk with any medicine though, particularly if there is an underlying problem, in this case, such as heart disease, breathing disorder or enzyme deficiency.

If you prefered not to take the risk then what alternatives could you use?

You can use cooled teething rings, these are bought already filled with water for you to put in the fridge. The coolness helps to soothe the gums and the baby’s chewing will help the teeth to cut through.

Use a clean damp face cloth  for baby to chew on. This can also help mop up the copious amounts of dribble a teething baby produces.

Teething toys, you can buy all sorts of colourful teething toys for baby to explore with his mouth.

Frozen pieces of fruit, baby can suck on these for comfort. The fruit can be boiled before freezing for a younger baby. It’s best to leave them for at least 5 minutes once they are out of the freezer to prevent freezer burns.

Homeopathic teething powders, contain all natural ingredients and can relieve the discomfort of teething.

At night it might be wise to give a baby over 3 months a small dose of baby paracetamol to ease the pain and help baby sleep better.

Teething can be a nightmare but it doesn’t last forever.

Getting Seen!

Today I’m going to share a few things that help me with the promotion of my online shop Bump To Bundle.

Search Engine Optimisation is vital and there are many ways to find out about how to do your own SEO and improve your rankings in the search engines. One of the best I’ve found so far is the helpful e-mails I get from Seobook.com

For finding out how well your site is doing, how many visitors you are getting, what keywords they are using to find you, where they are coming from, and help on choosing keywords then you can’t do better than Google Analytics

I’m a big believer in using social networks to aid promotion so a Facebook page and a Twitter account are a necessity. If you’ve not used them before they may take some getting used to but there is always help at hand with a simple search.

A useful tool I recently found for Twitter is Buffer. You can use it to space your tweets out so that you can be tweeting even when you are not online. Extremely useful if you have a special promotion on and don’t have the time to sit all day tweeting about it. You just stack up your tweets and set the times you want each one sent out. It’s really easy to use too.

Connecting with like  minded people in forums can be a great way to get advice, help, feedback and lots more. You can find forums easily by just asking relevent questions in google, for example if your site is to do with babies, then ask a question about babies and you are bound to come up with links to answers given in forums. Or you can find them through Facebook and Twitter, or just by browsing similar sites to yours. Or you could try http://www.ukbusinessforums.co.uk/forums/

You may also benefit from directory sites such as http://www.freeindex.co.uk/ or http://www.brownbook.net/ but be prepared for phone calls from companies offering to get you on the first page of google for extortionate prices. Keep working at it and you really don’t need to pay anyone. (And if you do pay, you might find your fame doesn’t last very long anyway!)

Where Do I Begin?

April 22, 2011 at 8:58 pm | Posted in guide | Leave a comment

Well, I suppose it all began last May when I attended the Baby Show at the NEC Birmingham in May. I was 6 months pregnant with the little man and so had good reason to attend. While there I came across a Mumsclub stand and picked up a booklet. Back home I read it through and visited the website. Suddenly I was inspired. I’d wanted to go back to work for a while, but catching for the little man unexpectedly made me realise that I wouldn’t be working any time soon so maybe I could work for myself instead.

I went through lots of ideas and realised that it would have to be baby related. I settled on opening an online baby shop. I jumped in feet first and made loads of mistakes, but you don’t learn unless you make mistakes, and I know I’ll go on making them. After a change of name and a change of web hosts I finally started to get to grips with Bump To Bundle.

My initial dream was to make things to sell, but I found this incredibly time consuming and knew that once the little man had arrived then I’d have very little time to make anything. So I put that idea on hold and began searching for stock to sell. I started with baby clothes and followed with accesories. Things just grew from there.

Bump  To Bundle was born in June 2010 and I can’t believe it’s been almost a year now.

The little man was born 9th August 2010 and again, I can’t believe how the time has flown.
