Tech expert Geoff Quattromani explains what tech products you do and don’t need for your newborn baby.

Parenting newborns can be overwhelming, especially if you’re a first-time mother or father.

From books, health professionals, and even well-meaning friends, advice and tips come from everywhere. Adding into the mix is the abundance of gadgets, and it can be hard to know what you do and don’t need. Thankfully, Hope Breakfast’s tech expert Geoff Quattromani from the Technology Uncorked Podcast has some advice.

“They have come into fruition, there’s almost a Bluetooth or wifi connected anything,” Geoff shared.

But rather than going out and buying anything and everything, you should aim towards convenience.

“[Ask] What are the things I can do in my home that makes things handsfree? If you need to control your lights or play music, being able to talk to a smart speaker, investing $10 in a light globe that replaces the one in the lamp their room… you can dim or turn off or on… if you need anything, you need more hands. And if we can’t get more hands, using your voice to extend them is the best way to do it.”

Geoff also warned of privacy concerns about baby monitors that include wifi, and shared a couple of gadgets that you probably don’t need for your baby.
