What to look for in a baby monitor for PP mag!
This month, i'm wanting to know what you need to consider when you're buying a baby monitor. It's for Practical Parenting's "mums guide' slot so i need your insider info!
What factors do you have to think about, what brands do you use and is there anything you wish you'd known before you picked yours. Is it worth getting an expensive one or are there any good bargains?
a must for a baby monitor are:
1. night light
2. volume control
3. portable parent unit (rechargable battery)
4. talk back control
i'm using a tomy at the moment. trust the brand. they also have the latest product.
I have a Tomy Walkabout one,not sure which model,it's 6 years old.,still working well
I chose it because it because it's rechargeable or plug in,has a room thermometer,volume control.You can have no volume,just lights too.
Summer Slim and Secure Video monitor is brilliant. I swapped the Lindam for this, and is far more superior. I can put Alejandra to bed upstairs and not have to keep going in to check on her. It also comes with TV output cable, though we have not needed to use since the parental monitor is excellent quality, and the sound is really clear.

I've got the Angelcare Sound and Movement monitor and it's brilliant. I love having the sensor pad, and it can be used without the sensor pad for when we have travelled. The parent unit is rechargable, has got a temperature display, can be muted for 2 minutes, volume control. It has a night light feature which is optional too. Background noise can also be on or off, and the sensitivity can be turned up or down too. I have the background noise off so it only clicks on when my daughter makes a noise. Brilliant purchase.
