Thank god for baby monitoring systems. Finally after weeks of linen and cream oriented purchases can buy something ELECTRONIC!!!
I’m also feeling the urge to blog about the one we bought in the end – the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Digital Sensor Mat Monitor, though part of me also now looks longingly at the Snuza
I like the Tommee Tippee one as the range allows us to get some fresh air thanks to 300m on the re-chargeable docking station. There is some sort of noise floor detector so it turns off the audio if no sound is being made, and has lights on the handset even if the voice is turned down. The BT one also had lights, but was a bit less elegant. It also gives a temperature monitor which was one thing we were after in particular. At the moment we haven’t used the motion detection via mattress system, and there are other bits and bobs like remote controllable night light and a two way talk system which allows me to have conversations with the wife while she is holding the baby.
Why the Snuza might be nice is that they have a base unit that is battery powered as well, making it a bit more portable.
