NC.. Ok so I didn't set out to do this and I haven't done it before.. but my DH was rocking our baby to sleep in the nursery chair next to the cot. I was getting into bed and turned on our baby video monitor. I could see DH with the baby. Once the baby fell asleep he went on his phone. It caught my attention and i could watch what he was doing on his phone. Wasn't all bad but some things I would frown upon hmm anyway I zoomed in on the monitor and watched for a while. When DH finally put the baby down in the cot I zoomed out and turned the camera back round... my husband saw this happening and knew i had been watching him on his phone. I know I am being unreasonable but I just couldn't help myself! sad

That’s a pretty powerful baby monitor if it let you zoom in to read a phone screen! What’s the model? Mine is grainy as hell.

Bloody hell that’s mad

It was surprisingly clear but I think because he was sat right next to it blush oops

whataremyoption Tue 26-Mar-19 23:23:23

What was he doing on his phone? What did he say when he caught you?

Errrrrrr that’s really bloody strange OP. Do you not trust him or something????

Ribbonsonabox Tue 26-Mar-19 23:25:47

How is it snooping? Presumably he knew the baby monitor was right there next to him... and he knew you had the other bit....

I mean it doesn't seem great that you are spying on him. I am impressed by the apparent quality of your baby monitor, all the ones I've seen remind me of bad self shot horror films.
What was he doing on his phone? Playing candy crush? Watching porn? Watching football? What was it that you disapprove of?

purplewallx Tue 26-Mar-19 23:27:43

I do trust him I was just caught in the moment and just watched i don't know why.

He didn't know I was in the other bedroom and didn't know I had turned on the monitor blush

I disapprove of betting sites (he told me he doesn't do this anymore) and looking at girls pictures on Instagram

Well, we have cctv on our house, front and back. I once caught dh sitting in the garden drinking gin when he should have been cleaning the house. He also once told me he was working from home when in fact was waiting for me to go to work to go play golf 🤔
Yeah, I’d like drink gin in the garden, or piss off and play golf. But funnily enough I don’t get much ‘me time’.
NB the cctv was fitted as we weren’t getting our parcels delivered, not to watch dh taking the piss. I’ll just go and suck on some lemons 🍋 to add to my bitterness.

I always watch my husband on the baby monitor - I love watching him being a great dad. Nothing creepy or spying about it, it means I can step in and help if he needs anything too.

Ours is one of those security/cctv cameras you can access from your phone. The picture quality is pretty good.

HerRoyalNotness Tue 26-Mar-19 23:37:31

longdistance grin. The best my H would see is me kicking the garage door because he’s locked it again unnecessarily.

miaCara Tue 26-Mar-19 23:45:59

Cant see anything wrong with you looking at the baby monitor. He surely knows its there and if hes doing something he'd rather keep private its a warning to him to be more aware next time.
If it was us we would be playing all sorts of silly games (silently) though.

What model baby monitor is this, I'm after a replacement and this sounds a good one?

GummyGoddess Tue 26-Mar-19 23:56:05

What monitor is this? It sounds great!

Obviously what you've done is bad and you should apologise profusely, but you know that. If you feel bad then you won't do it again.

How does he know you had zoomed in on his phone? I would just assume that you had just quickly watched me for a few mins put baby down. It wouldnt cross my mind that you had zoomed in on my phone screen.

Weird and creepy. I’d be pissed off if DH did this to me.

FenellaMaxwell Wed 27-Mar-19 00:06:56

Who made your baby monitor, NASA?! hmm

I read this story on here before.

your DH wouldn’t have known how long you’d been ‘spying’ for all he knows you could have just put monitor on for a second, so surely nothing to worry about? 🤷‍♀️

StillCoughingandLaughing Wed 27-Mar-19 00:34:45

This sounds unhinged to me.

Verynice Wed 27-Mar-19 00:56:41


You have properly made me laugh out loud. PMSL.
'Who made your baby monitor - NASA?'


SurgeHopper Wed 27-Mar-19 00:57:14

Crikey I'd be gladto just roll over

PregnantSea Wed 27-Mar-19 02:58:09

Another one who is very impressed with your baby monitor! I'm looking to buy soon, what model is it?

Also you definitely shouldn't be snooping on your DH but I think in this circumstance it isn't that big a deal. It was accidental, he can't even really know what you were doing and honestly I'd think it was funny. If this was me when DH came back in I'd say something like "that insta girl had some nice knockers, didn't she?" And then have a good laugh and tell him to keep his phone screen away from the baby monitor in future
