What you loved

The parent unit is pocket sized and very portable, handy when moving between living room and kitchen.

Loved the humidity feature; Alex’s room can get very hot but the air temperature is often low so this was a god send. Allied to the alarm you can set to your own temperature variations we found it quite easy to monitor Alex’s body temperature.

Sound quality was really good, very little interference with anything else such as mobiles.

Instructions were clear and it was very easy to set up.

What to watch out for

The buttons on the baby unit do not illuminate at night time, which is tricky if you are just learning how to operate it.

Wasn’t overly keen on the music, would have liked more white noise sounds.

Sounds quite minor but isn’t when your little one can hear a pin drop but the buttons are noisy.

Excellent sound and very good portability. This baby monitor is handy in the home or great when staying away.
