Baby Jasper at Northpark Private

Our son, Jasper Marlowe Bair, was born at Northpark Private Hospital in May this year.  My husband is from the USA, and whilst we are settled in Melbourne and visit the US regularly, it is so difficult to be separated from half of our family at any given time.  When our daughter, Eliza, was born in 2010, we were lucky enough to have her paternal grandparents over for a visit, but they were unable to fly this year due to health issues.  When we heard about Look@MyBaby, we were absolutely thrilled!

In this digital age, it is so easy to send pictures via email and MMS, but nothing beats seeing things in real time.  Our US family and friends were able to log in within a couple of hours of Jasper's birth, and by all reports, he became a spectacular time-waster!  We were also amazed and delighted by how many of our local friends and family 'dropped in' for a virtual visit, which really helped reduce visitor chaos at the hospital in those first few precious days.  The log book of messages from well-wishers is a very special addition to Jasper's baby book!  The Look@MyBaby webcam certainly whet the appetites of our overseas family, and we have just returned from a wonderful trip to Vermont, USA with two very spoilt children.
