Meet Pro Parent Shelby Pease

Shelby and her husband met in high school and have been together for over 12 years. They had their first baby last year–Teagan Ray is turning 1 in November!

What does your bedtime routine usually look like? 

Bedtime begins at 6 pm, bath, fresh Jammie’s, Nanit sleeping bag, bottle, bedtime stories and rocking in our chair. Currently we play soft music in the background to help her wind down.

Why Nanit? 

We love our Nanit. We moved our daughter to her crib at 6 weeks old because we felt so comfortable with Nanit monitoring her. 

When she had her first cold we went and ordered the sleeping bag to help track her breathing and now we use it all the time. It has helped make us first time parents sleep better and have comfort knowing she is safe.

Favorite Nanit products and features?

Favorite products are the Nanit Camera, Floor Stand, Flex Stand and Travel Case and Breathing Wear Sleeping Bag! We use them all the time.

All of the helpful resources and new technology has given my husband and I so much peace of mind when she sleeps in her crib alone. We especially love to be able to track her breathing and see how she slept at night using the sleep dashboard.
