Creating the Perfect Nursery

Thanks to Tim Glanfield!

The truth is, it depends on your preference, your home and your budget. Although some parents are happy with the basic function of just hearing baby breathing (and crying – which may be quite a lot!), many prefer the added comfort that being able to see baby in their Moses basket or cot brings.

On top of this, many monitors have a range of handy functions that can alert parents to changes in temperature in baby’s room, talk to your child from another room, nightlights, out of range alarms, automated lullabies – and in recent times movement sensors that monitor baby’s physical well-being.

But while you’re picking handy extras (and in my opinion they really are handy), don’t forget the basics. How big is your house (so is the range large enough?) and do you intend to move around a lot with the monitor (does the receiver take batteries?) Believe me, these are really worth considering.

So, if you’re ready - let’s begin shopping for your perfect baby monitor…


Digital Buyer's Pick - TT Digital Monitor


Digital Monitors offer more channels and clearer sound.Modern digital baby monitors offer a crystal clear connection with baby, virtually no interference from other devices (including mobile phones and WiFi) and much longer ranges than their analogue cousins.

Video Buyers Pick - Motorola Digital Video Monitor


Video Monitors allow you to hear and see your baby too.Baby may be crying, but with just audio, you can't see what they are doing. A digital video monitor solves that problem and offers extra peace of mind to a new parent who quite rightly feels uncomfortable being too far away from little one. Video monitoring really comes into its own when baby starts moving around more in their cot.

Buyer's Pick - Angel Care Movement and Sound Monitor


Sensor Monitors use a sensory pad to pick up baby's movements.

A pressure pad beneath the mattress connects to the main monitor unit and detects when movement stops, sounding an alarm and immediately alerting the parents. In the event that baby does stop moving for a long period or stop breathing – these devices are designed to immediately detect such changes and summon help fast.
