Baby Monitors

By Robin Darch

The first baby monitors were really just a small intercom you hung by your baby's crib so you would know if they started crying. Advances in design and technology have improved and so have the baby monitors you can purchase.

Baby Monitors are used by millions of families every year to help watch over their newborns and older babies. Some now sense movement, sound, and some even have visual monitors for watching over your newborn baby. Here are some of the monitors that I find to be very useful.

What are some of the features I should look for in a Baby Monitor?

1. Whether it has one receiver or two or more is one feature to consider. Having more than one receiver for the Baby Monitor, means you don't have to carry it from room to room with you. You can have one receiver for the baby monitor in your bedroom, one in the kitchen, one in the bathroom, and so on.

2. Is the receiver for the Baby Monitor battery operated or electric? Baby Monitors that run on batteries should also have an AC Adapter. If the batteries go dead, a nice feature is one that alarms you to that fact. Otherwise, you will just think the baby is being quiet, when in reality, you are no longer monitoring the baby.

3. Another option to having more than one receiver is to get a Baby Monitor with a belt clip, so that you won't forget it when you go from room to room.

4. The receiver should be portable and lightweight.

5. The range of the monitor is also important. Some have only a range of 100 feet, while other Baby Monitors have a range of over 400 feet.

6. If it has more than one channel, then there should be an easy way to change channels and the volume control feature on most Baby Monitors is essential. Some really don't have one.

7. Try the Baby Monitor out in the store if they will allow you to. The Baby Monitor's sound should be very clear from a distance. If there is a lot of static or the sound is very poor quality, the Baby Monitor isn't for you.

8. Surface mounting options for your Baby Monitor are important as well. The ability to mount it in more than one way should be included. Clips, suction cups, and other mounting options make using your Baby Monitor easy.

We hope the Tips on buying a Baby Monitor are helpful to you. There are more tips for buying a Baby Monitor at This is an important purchase for your baby's safety and for your piece of mind. I do not recommend you buy the Cheapest Baby Monitor you can find, nor do I recommend the Most Expensive baby Monitor you can find. I recommend you buy the Baby Monitor with the features that suit you and your baby's needs.
