Baby Monitors – Why you need it?

Nuk Monitor Chicco Monitor
What is a baby monitor and why do we need it? Ever wished you had a walkie talkie as a youngster? Well, we were fortunate enough to have a set to play with. Now, a baby monitor is a kind of walkie talkie.So what is it? You carry around a nifty neat looking monitor, while the “parent” unit is in the room where your baby sleeps. The only difference is that it is one way, so in other words you would be able to hear your baby, but not the other way around. This is a must have product for all parents with babies. So make sure to add this to your baby shower list.

Why do I need this?

Peace of mind is the simplest answer to this question. If you are visiting friends, or have a big house , or simply if you want an extra “ear”, when you are not near your baby, then this is simply the best device to have as a parent.

There are many monitors on the market, some that will monitor your baby’s movement and breathing, and some that will give you a visual picture on what is happening where your baby sleeps or in your baby’s room. But then again, you will need to decide what you want from your monitor before you buy.

Nice to have, but what will I pay for it?

The monitors range from about R600 to R1000 for sound and movement, and up to R1600 for a visual monitor.
