Bringing home your newborn for the first time is a joyous experience and something you will remember forever. You will want to do anything and everything you can to care for your baby and one of the things that is a valuable investment is a baby monitor .
Why do you need a baby monitor ? Baby’s are wonderful and bring a lot of joy and happiness – but they are very hard work. The only break you get is when they are asleep. You will worry over your baby while it is sleeping and will want to be close to them but it will tie you down to one room and prevent you from doing other household jobs, watching TV or simply have a rest. A baby monitor will give you the freedom and putting your baby down to sleep in their own room so you can leave them to rest while you do other things around the house.
The baby monitor unit will watch over your newborn and wirelessly send a signal back to your receiver unit so you will know instantly if your baby needs attention. There are many different types of baby monitor and the main two being audio only or audio and video. Video baby monitors are fantastic as they allow you to watch your baby remotely whilst they are fast asleep – giving the parents total peace of mind.
There are analog and digital baby monitors to choose from. The analog type are usually much cheaper but are older in technology. They can suffer from interference from other household devices such as microwaves and other wireless devices such as broadband but are much improved than the units a few years ago. The digital or DECT baby monitors are far superior as they don’t suffer from interference whatsoever. But these units are more expensive to buy. In most cases, an analog unit will be suitable.
