3-Detecting health issues (asthma, fever, allergies)
4-Helps sleep training and tracking
4-Monitor shared bedrooms with siblings sleeping together
5-Remote monitoring, even you are not at home
6-Capturing special moments, like first words and first steps
7-Easily portable, especially when sleeping over at a relative’s house
8-Having the constant monitor will help you relax and sleep
How to choose the best baby monitor?
-Set a budget
Some monitors are more expensive than others. That is based on the type, range, number of receivers, and special features. Look up what you need to help set your budget.
-Get to know the types
Baby monitors’ types vary. You have audible, visual, wireless, and motion detectors. See which type will make you more comfortable. Avoid the type that might make you a little paranoid.
-Look for the special features
Some monitors have special features such as movability, rechargeable batteries, nightvision, interference filters, or sound activation. Again, check which features are going to make your life easier, and avoid those that’ll just make it harder.
Also, check the monitor’s range, and if it will work well with your home network.
