Re: Baby monitors?!
They are not enough.The point is getting to attend to the baby when he wakes up but before he starts crying at full blast.
It's amusing seeing the replies by people who obviously don't have children. The quoted is someone who has a kid, and knows the value of not waiting until your formerly sleeping baby is screaming at 2am so go comfort them. Also: if you have a audio path to the baby that you can hear him crying, the baby can hear what you're doing and be woken up by it.
I have an internet-connected baby monitor which I received as a gift. I probably wouldn't have gotten the internet model myself, but it works, it's cheap (~$50 US) and makes life a lot easier. I've only watched it remotely once to see if it worked, however, if I'm not in my own wifi bubble there's no point.
