We have the Summer video monitor from Target. The video ones are more expensive but I love it! Especially now that the little guy is starting to roll over and stick his arms through the sides of his crib. 

They are more expensive and I thought it might be overkill at first but it really helps when you have a newborn and you want to let them start getting themselves back to sleep. It is much easier to let him fuss and give him time to settle back down when I can see him on the monitor. Also ours has had no problems with interference from the wifi or anything like that.

I’ve never been pregnant, so I personally don’t know. I do remember a friend recommending hers but I don’t think I remember the name.

I found this site, I’ve used this site before to buy almost everything.

We’ve registered for the Summer Infant digital monitor, but I was just reading in an article at my OB/GYN office that said about getting this app for your iphone ($4 at Target) that allows you to use your iphone as a monitor at night. You place it in the babies room and if they wake up it calls another phone. I haven’t looked into it but thought it was an interesting back-up plan.

I think we are going with the Angel Care Movement monitor and then if we decide later we want the video we will get that.

@pansyshell:  You can get a free app like that on the Droid; it’s called “Noise Alert.”  We’ve used it as travel monitor before, and for that it works fine, but I don’t think we would use it as our full-time monitor.  You can’t hear what noises trigger the call; it just automatically calls when the noise reaches a certain level, so if you’re baby is a noisy sleeper it might go off several times during a nap without the baby actually waking up.

We also have the Summer Infant Color Video Monitor for our regular monitor.

We have the 1.8″ screen and it has been fine although he is 6 months old now and does scoot or turn himself in ways that I can’t see his face or if he gets his arm stuck in the crib sides. Overall tho I have been happy with the size of the screen. During the early months, when you will worry the most and try to watch them breathe, they don’t move around and you will be able to see them all the time.

We have 1.8 inch screen, and we don’t have any trouble seeing in the dark.  Also, with the flashing red light, I’ve found that most baby monitors, even just regular sound-only monitors, have some kind of light (either flashing or continuous) on the monitor.  You would think this would bother the baby, but Addie has never reacted to it all, so I don’t think she even notices it.
