Video Monitor?

Any one have a video monitor they recommend? Getting the room ready to move baby and 3 year old in together (baby is currently in our room). Would like to keep "eyes" in the room during naps and overnight. My 3 year old has already shown that he can climb into the crib.

Re: Video Monitor?

No specific brand names, but when I used one I liked the older analog ones vs the newer digital ones. The digital never failed to freeze up on us. With the sound on I could hear him, but on the video monitor he was sleeping. The digital video had frozen, thus making the video part useless (we co-sleep, so it was only used at nap times & the video part, not sound, was needed). The only bad part of the analog one (never tried it with the digital as it was returned) was that I could pick up a channel with a neighbor's video I could see their nursery at times even though we lived a fair distance away down the street! So if you do get a video monitor, be sure to turn it off when not in use

Never used one, but babyhalfoff.com has a video monitor on today . May be a good deal.

I don't think I could survive without my video monitor. But I don't overly love my Summer. It's fine. Ill use it until it dies - just the battery life sorta sucks now (>a yr old)

Sometimes I think I heard a slight thump, click it on and my DD has woken from her nap and is reading a book. If it wasn't video, I would not know until she got upset that I hadn't retrieved her yet. Or I'd go in and accidentally wake her up from a rollover thump.

I'm very happy I spent the extra money on a video monitor.
