A baby monitor will give you peace of mind by letting you keep track of your baby from anywhere in your home. Baby monitors today have many different features, so consider which might be useful to you before making a purchase.
A basic baby audio monitor simply allows you to hear any sound your baby makes at night. This is a good choice if you're mainly concerned about hearing your baby crying from across the house. A more advanced option is a baby video monitor, which allows you to actually see your child. Some video monitors come with remote controls that allow you to adjust the camera without entering your baby's room. Others use wi-fi so that you can view your baby away from home on your smartphone, tablet or computer. If you're concerned about your baby sleeping safely, you may want a baby movement monitor, which comes with a mat or other sensor to detect your baby's movement and heartbeat.
