Very useful monitor, but not without its flaws

Posted

Pros: Excellent night vision, high quality image

Cons: Battery doesn't hold a charge, occasional static

This has been such a must-have for us.  Since we co-sleep, we put bumpers all around the sides of our family bed and our baby sleeps there for naps and a few hours in the evening before we join him.  It gives me peace of mind to be able to see him clearly on the monitor and anticipate his nighttime needs.  With the video monitor, I can watch him become restless and get to him for soothing before he wakes up--something I don't think would be possible with a standard audio-only monitor.   That said, there are a couple drawbacks to this model.  The main one is that the battery hasn't held a charge since about a week after we bought it, and we very carefully...

Pros: Non-toxic, bendy, squeaky, lots of ways for babes to grab
