Safety 1st Angelcare Monitor
Advantages: Sensor Pad which detects movement and breathing
After looking at so many reviews and options of baby monitors we opted for the Angelcare baby monitor because it has the sensor pad that goes under the baby's mattress, if your baby doesn't move or breath for 20 seconds the alarm sounds. You just have to always remember to turn the monitor off when picking up the baby as the alarm will sound.
(The amount of times we would get downstairs and then after 20 seconds we would hear the alarm and have to run upstairs to turn it off)
As first time parents this was something that put our minds at rest through the night as we knew if anything was to go wrong we would be alerted and we would be able to get straight to the nursery and have time to do the necessary if the worst was to happen.
It has a unit that stays in the baby's room which the sensor pad is connected to and a unit that stays with you the parents.
You can when the baby gets older take the sensor pad out and just use it as a normal sound monitor, we did this around 9 months as our son liked to move around his cot in the night and would move away from the sensor and the alarm would sound.
We only ever had 2 occasions where the alarm sounded and this was due to our son being to far away from the sensor pad as he had moved down the cot. All the other times were because we forgot to turn it off as I said above!
Our son was up in bed each night at 7pm from 6 weeks and I know that having the reassurance that we would know if there was ever a problem spurred this on.
We used a square piece of hard cardboard to stand the sensor pad on under the mattress of the moses basket, as the sensor needs to be flat and unable to move around.
I highly would recommend this to all parents as knowing that you will hear an alarm if anything is wrong just gives that extra peace of mind.
Our parents also loved the monitor as they were extra nervous being grandparents, so felt at ease knowing the alarm was there!
Summary: A great piece of mind for all parents!
