    Default Baby Monitor Recommendations

    Just wondering if anyone can recommend what brand baby monitor we should buy? Ideally I would like one that has the breathing / movement monitor and I beelive there is one that has a heart beat monitor as well, although I think this might be a bit of overkill seeing they would stop breathing before their heart would stop, and therefore the 'not breathing' alarm would go off first anyway.



    Any suggestions??
    Thanks

    another one here with the angel care monitor. we have the rechargeable one so the parent unit can be taken anywhere around the house with you and then when your done with it you just plug it back in to recharge the batteries, it cost a little more than the regular one and i could only find it in a specialty store.

    Just so you know, if you're going secondhand, the older models only come with one movement pad, the newer ones have two. We have the older one and it does the job fine, except if bubs is squashed up in a corner or along the very edge of the cot - it may sound the alarm because it doesn't sense them there. You would get the older one a lot cheaper though, I imagine.

    I agree the newer ones would be better, we have the newer model with 2 movement pads and it still went off when he first went into his cot because he was rolling everywhere and right up to the end of the cot. We didn't space the pads out really well to begin with, but we have them in a perfect position now and they never go off.
