Moms--baby monitor ?s

What kind do you have?  Would you recommend it?  Is a video one worth it?

TIA

Re: Moms--baby monitor ?s

  • We have the Fisher Price sound & lights monitor. http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=2919625&fromRegistryNumber=44223596&product_skn=690964

    I've played with it and I really like it, it picks up little sounds even when it's on the dresser across the room and it wasn't all that expensive.

    We have yet to really use it, I really don't think we will all that much - the only reason we got one was more for in the Spring/Summer when we may be outside while LO is napping.

  • We have the Sony Baby Call. I have no complaints. It picks up her slightest noise without any interference.

  • I have only honestly used ours a couple of times. I always wake up when I hear Charlie getting up. I have those Mommy ears. I can even hear him very well when I am downstairs and he is upstairs. If anything I would have liked the Angel Monitor. The one that goes off if it can't detect the baby breathing.

    We have the same one.  Honestly, we never use it.  We only use it when BIL and SIL watch Abby when she is sleeping.  We just give them the monitor so they can listen to her (we share a 2 family house with them, they live downstairs).  I could not imagine getting the Angel care monitor because it would make me more paranoid.  I don't really see why you would need a video monitor for a newborn or infant... they don't move anywhere!  I could see it being useful for a toddler that can get out of his/her bed and you want to watch what the baby is doing. 

  • my sil also uses the sony baby call. not sure how much mommy uses it - but i know we got one for my MIL for Xmas. She watches the LO two days a week, and DH was over there once and found his niece awake in the crib while his mom was on the other side of the house.

    I agree with this, as a newborn he is either always in my sight or where ever I put him he doesn't go far from, LOL.

    This may be a stupid question, but if the baby isn't breathing and the machine detects it, wouldn't already be too late? Or, do they suspect that you would get their quick enough to revive the child?

    And, I've heard so many people talk about false alarms. I would FREAK out so much that I would probably have a heart attack.

    We don't have a monitor (GASP!) because our house is itty bitty and Neena sleeps in the same room as us.  We might consider getting one when she starts sleeping in her crib, but her nursery is right across the hall from our room--she'll be like 15 feet from our bed.

  • Our apartment is small but it is 2 floors.  Hopefully we will move before baby byrd gets here but I am trying to be prepared.  We are putting it on our registry but won't sweat it if we don't get it.
