I have just found this really great baby monitor called the Safety 1st Colour digital video monitor. As it is a video monitor it is perfect because I can see my baby while she sleeps and if she crys I can tell if I need to go into her room and comfort her. It's got a great picture and is so easy to use. I can pan around the room and zoom in on her little face, which I have to admit I love doing this as she is so peaceful when she is asleep.
The parent unit is really slim and comes with a belt hook so it's easy to carry around and my husband can actually fit it in his pocket. The best bit is that it has a longer life than the old type as I can use it until she's alot older so I will know if she has sneaked out of bed and when she is playing in her room.
I thinks its really cool and good value for money
