We received an audio/visual baby monitor as a gift when our son was born. At first, I thought the video function was superfluous, but I now find it invaluable. I love being able to see if he is sleeping soundly, or standing and ready to be taken out of bed.
Which is the best baby monitor on the market and is there one to steer clear of?
I've never had one as I've always kept the little ones close when they were babies. It always worried me that I could grow to rely on one and then it didn't work probably and I would think everything was fine when it wasn't. Would rather look and see for myself.
