Hey everyone

In this post I want to share with you few tips and advice on how to purchase a baby monitor. Enjoy!


Choosing things for your baby used to be easy. When it came to picking a high chair, baby monitor or crib, there were only a handful of choices. It’s a very different world today, where you have hundreds of brands, models and styles for these and related items.

You no doubt want to choose the highest quality items for your baby, but it can be difficult to know how to figure out which baby accessories are best. How do you make the right choice with so many available ones? In order to make shopping for your baby less complicated, here are a few guidelines to follow.

What size monitor are you looking for? If you don’t have that much space in your home, you may want to consider something which will be the least obtrusive.

If more space is available to you, then your options are better, because you may have room for a larger monitor, which is important if you are looking for a more extensive system. It also matters how YOU will be using this monitor, because you might have to be carrying it around if you have a home with more than one level, which means a larger monitor may not be ideal, or, you may move things around so much, that a smaller portable monitor could be lost easily.

Your habits and lifestyle are important when it comes to choosing a baby monitor, and that’s why these are the kinds of questions you should be asking yourself when it’s time to buy. In the end, lightweight options are best if you are planning on moving around a lot, however heavier and larger systems are good if you are only going to be using the monitor in one room.

Do you live in a noisy environment? If noise is just a part of your day, you might want to choose a monitoring system that has a visual indicator when the receiver picks up noise as well as an audio system.

Since you can’t stop every little noise from occurring around you, you will find comfort in using this kind of system, because it visually alerts you when your baby is in distress, so that you become aware, even if you can’t hear it. If one or both parents are hearing impaired, this is also a good system, and even if both parents can hear fine, because it still alerts you when something is wrong, and will let you know even if you cannot hear it.

How extensive would you like your system to be? Consider how extensive you actually want your system to be, because if you live in a small space, extensive systems may end up becoming to bulky and could get in the way of your everyday living.

Multiple receivers are a good option for those who have more space, for those who live in a larger home, or for those who have larger families already. If you are going to choose a multiple receiver system, find one which has both inbound and outbound capabilities, so that more than one person can use it. Also, if you choose to have more than one receiver, it will allow you to monitor more than one child consecutively, and you also won’t have to worry about always carrying it around with you.

These are just a few things to keep in mind when you are choosing which baby monitoring system is right for your home. It may help to base your decision on what is the most important thing for you, your baby, and your family. You may prefer a long battery life.
You never know, perhaps in the end you may prefer to have a visual monitor so you can always keep an eye on your baby.

All the best!
