This is one thing we haven’t gotten yet. Well we did get gifted monitors but don’t think we’ll keep them. They get mixed reviews on amazon and aren’t video.
SO…. What monitors do you have? Love em? Hate em? Did you go with video? Think it’s necessary?

We have the Safety 1st monitors. It comes with two monitors, one for the nursery, one for the parents. They work well. The only issue is that they do pick up interference at times, but we’ve never not heard her crying when they’re on. Also, they’re both battery powered and plug in, which is nice for if I need to go into another room. However, the volume needs to be turned up in those cases, because it’s not as strong of a signal. I rarely use it that way though.
As for video monitoring, I think it’s a nice idea, but it’s more of an extra. I could see using it if the nursery is on a different floor or across the house from the bedroom, but otherwise, I don’t see the need.
