  • didn’t even need one. could always hear theM!

  • Keep the bedroom door open and keep your ears open too. That’s best. Monikers make us keep too close of an eye on bub, I don’t think they’re necessary

  • Oricom baby sense 3, only hospital grade monitor

  • I had an old Angelcare Movement monitorAC201 and it was good but then upgraded to a newer model. The newer model AC601 isn’t as good, the alarm isn’t as loud and if you have a ceiling fan on it doesn’t work. Wish I kept the older model.

  • I had one that went underneath the mattress and alarmed if the baby stopped breathing. I cannot remember the brand but I do know it was made in Israel. It helped me with peace of mind and it worked well.

  • Even the cheaper baby monitors work well. There was a case on TV lately abut a baby monitor being hacked! Makes baby monitors sound scary now!

  • there are some good comments here

  • Oricom is a great brand

  • I’ve been using a Motorola for almost 6 months. And it’s perfect. They aren’t too expensive either which is good.

  • We have the Uniden. It’s fantastic! I highly recommend video monitoring, it takes away the guess work.

  • We have an Oricom and I couldn’t live without it! It has great sound, clear picture video, night vision and plays lullabies. I take it with me everywhere and being able to see our daughter on the video stops me from having to risk waking her up while creeping in and checking on her

  • The angelcare monitor is wonderful! I personally don’t use the movement sensor, but it’s just very reliable and portable.

  • Avent have a great monitor

  • We found the Target brand Video baby monitor wonderful. it was a great price and worked fantastically

  • we’ve been using Bluetooth screens between our iPhones, bub sleeps in with us so it dosent have to be too sophisticated its only for when I am outside or in the lounge!
