Baby Monitor

Anyone using a baby monitor?

I was looking at Safety 1st costing about $17 but there were some reviews about static and eavesdropping...

Another one that was recommended to me was the Philip Baby Monitor but that costs a bomb.

Anything that costs in between?

Help!

Yes, we have one.

Bought it at RM179.90, from Toys 'R Us. It was for Caitlin, which means we have been using it since 3 years ago. There was a period of time when we stopped using it because Caitlin could already walk, and could open bedroom doors to look for us; before Caleb came along.

I don't know if it's just the age of the equipment, but I think the quality of the audio has been deteriorating. It used to be quite clear with Caitlin; now Caleb's cries sound rather crackly-static. It also used to be quiet; now there is a constant hum when it's switched on.

Not that these are stopping its main purpose, just that it's not how it used to perform.

Our's is a one-way one. I do think the two-way one could also be useful, but only for adult to adult communication (a la Hot Mummee issuing instructions!) I can foresee if the equipment was set wrongly, the baby could be startled if it were two-way...

Good luck with this!

Yes, we used one since Olivia sleeps in her own room when she was 2 months old.

We have the one from fisher price and it's very good. They do come with some static but the FP one is pretty sensitive. I can even hear the clock ticking in her room if I turn up the volume.

I got my baby monitor from US. It is really cheap over there. Actually all the baby stuff is at least 60-70% cheaper than buying it here. So since you're going to US for business , do stock up from there it will save you alot! We even got our high chair from US, Hubby doesn't mind carrying when we can save so much.
