safe (& sound) summary.
A baby monitor helps you make sure your little one's safe even when you're in the next room. You'll hear (or see) baby's sleep activity without any disruption from entering the room. And you'll know right away when naptime is over.
the way it works.
Whether audio or video, both types of monitors work the same way. The transmitter stays in baby's room, and one or more receivers (monitors) stay near you. Today's models come with all sorts of handy features, so consider your home and how you'll use the monitor, and make your list of must-haves from there.
There's no substitute for your watchful eye. Monitors are a little extra help in keeping your bundle of joy safe and sound. Always read and follow the manufacturer's instructions before use.
