Baby Monitors Explained

Long Range Baby Monitor

Baby monitors are an essential part of baby gear. When you have the baby asleep in the crib, you don’t have to keep constantly checking to make sure that he/she is all right when you have a baby monitor.

The transmitters in the monitors work best when they are within 10 feet of the baby. This is why you should have the monitor on a nightstand near the crib, but yet you don’t need to have them so close that when the baby gets older, he/she can reach out and touch it.

Some of the monitors on the market have a light display that flashes to let you know when the baby is crying. You don’t need to have the volume turned up if you use this feature, but it does mean that you have to keep looking at the monitor. Top of the line monitors have a camera (a video monitor) that you can attach to your VCR. This lets you watch the baby without actually being in the same room.

There are also disadvantages to using a baby monitor. The baby monitor can pick up the conversation so you need to be discreet if you have a cordless phone. Even talking in the same room as the baby will transfer the sound of your voice to the receiver, so you can’t complain about visitors that won’t go home. Once case we had neighbors with the same monitor on the same frequency and we could hear their entire night-time routine if our monitor was on, in. You also have to make sure that you keep the monitors away from bathtubs and pools because they are electrical devices.

Overall a baby monitor is a very useful thing to have. Never forget that a monitor can NEVER replace proper parental care.
