Thanks ladyintheradiator, there doesn't seem to be an obvious solution to me either. Hopefully someone will come along to confirm whether I do have to turn it on/off, (which does seem a bit of a faff when I'm bleary eyed at 2am )
I am racking my brains as to what I used to do tbh - I used the Angelcare with my DS but he's about to turn 5! And I didn't use it with DD as she slept on me or DP for so long... DS was a frequent waker so what on earth did I do with the monitor - turn it off and then on each time?? Maybe - sorry I'm not much help but hope this bumps it up for someone with a less hazy memory
Also (sorry!), if I take parent unit upstairs and turn it off whenever I feed ds, I don't know if that'll make the baby unit beep, which would be even worse than parent unit beeping from distance, and also how easy it is to turn the parent unit back on again (would I need to reselect things from menu etc). Thanks!
We have an angelcare monitor. The baby unit is upstairs in our room by cot. The parent unit is downstairs in living room. When I feed DS at night, I turn the baby unit off before picking him up, but that means the parent unit downstairs beeps loudly, disturbing DH and DS. Is there a better way of doing it? Thanks
