Top 10 Baby Monitors – 2020

Trying to decide which baby monitor to choose depends on your budget, how many cameras you want throughout the house, the style that appeals to you, and your preference for video, audio, audio-video, or a breathing and movement monitor.

In baby’s first weeks and months, a baby monitor can give you peace of mind while they sleep. You can check on your bub sleeping while you get on with the to-do list. 

A baby monitor also helps you to determine what kind of noises your baby is making, and whether you allow baby time to grunt and snuffle before resettling themselves.

There are numerous baby monitors on the market, from the basic audio monitor to the high tech Smart gadgets that can make your job as a parent a little easier.
