Ideas Every Day #309 – The Virtual Mommy’s Bed

How many times has your child woke up in the middle of the night and wanted to come into mommy and daddy’s bed?   Sure, this is cute the first couple times so you don’t mind – but that’s when your child starts to expect it and the real trouble begins.   After a while of having a toddler kick and slober on you in the middle of the night you think there has to be a better way.

What if you could give the child the comfort and satisfaction of sleeping in the parent’s bed, while still maintaining your mattress freedom?

Next time your child asks for you in the middle of the night, or give him/her the ability to switch it on him/herself (with an override available for mommy’s privacy), have a screen next to the child’s bed come on with a live video feed that makes it look like they’re sleeping next to mommy and daddy.

The screen would be very low lit, and give the child just the amount of “I see you” comfort that s/he needs to fall back asleep.  Daddy and mommy get to keep their bed kid free and the child feels like s/he is right there… win, win.

This could even work when mommy and daddy are out of town.

Yes, and…
