" When he was a newborn, it was especially helpful, because otherwise I would have been peeking into his room ALL the time!"
"It's nice when they're a little bigger and starting to pull themselves up so you can actually see what they are doing in there! Plus there's something comforting knowing that in the middle of the night I can look over and watch him sleeping on the monitor :)"
The favorite brand amongst the Mamas is the Summer Infant Day & Night Monitor.
