How do you know what type of baby monitor to buy? Well, it depends what you need it for, of course! There are many different types of baby monitor depending on your needs and budget. Let’s talk baby monitors!
In this article we will go over some of the different types and styles of baby monitors and how you use them. Included in this article is the basic baby monitor, the video baby monitor, and the baby monitor that also tracks movement. All of these baby monitors can be very useful, and serve specific purposes.
The first type of baby monitor that I would like to talk about is the simple, basic, classic baby monitor. This particular baby monitor has two primary functions: for you to hear the baby, and for you to be able to talk to the baby through the monitor. Most of the baby monitors like this also have a few extra functions such as playing music or having a night light built into the monitor. The awesome thing about this type of baby monitor is that it has an extremely long battery life. The biggest drawback of this monitor, of course, is that you can’t see what your baby is up to. I am personally too paranoid for this particular monitor to work for me. People who want to keep an “ear” on on older toddlers or preschoolers while they are in their rooms playing might find this to be a good monitor for them.
The next type of baby monitor that we will discuss is more in my comfort zone – the video baby monitor. This baby monitor is probably the most popular type of baby monitor that is on the market right now. People love to be able to see their babies on the full color screens, and most of the parent hand held units are approximately the size of a cell phone, so it’s easy to take with you around the house or even out to the mailbox. All of the baby monitors of this type that I have come across have extra features such as being able to play multiple songs with a touch of the button on the parental unit, night vision cameras, and temperature gages. When my 4 year old daughter was a baby this is the type of baby monitor that I got for her. It’s still got tons of life left in it, and I am now using it with my 3 month old son.
The final type of baby monitor that I would like to discuss today is the video monitor with movement sensor. This is the type of monitor that I feel is the absolute best and safest – it combines all of the features of the other two types of baby monitors, but has an attachment that monitors movement as well. If there is no movement in a set amount of time then the monitor will alert you that there might be a problem and you can check it out right away. I personally have an extremely high end one that sends alerts to my cell phone, and I can see graphs of my baby’s breathing patterns as well. This type of baby monitor has given me more peace of mind than anything else.
