Just what we need
Another way of becoming addicted to monitoring our children to the extent that we become paranoid.
My wife insisted on one of those infuriating sleep mat monitors, fine for the first 6 months when he was in a crib, but now he's in a cot and wriggling around, the bl**dy thing goes off at least a couple of times a night, which when you're a sleep deprived parent, is not what you need. She's now addicted to it though, convinced that the mat has saved the boys life several times and if she turns it off she'll not be able to sleep for fear of SIDS. We've agreed that will turn it off by the time he goes to Uni.
Thankfully, our lad has never taken to a dummy so she won't be after this.
