Looking for a baby monitor, currently have a nanit. Very expensive & have issues with the live feed staying connected.

Looking for a video monitor that is reliable please and allows you to continuously watch and hear baby

Hubble. You can use the monitor and your phone continuously

I’ll be honest I found getting a monitor so stressful as there’s so many about!
just check out the specs on the ones you like the look of. No one really recommended one we loved so we looked at the Hubble and it ticked the boxes for what we needed it for.

We have a Babysense monitor as we wanted one that didn’t use wifi due to potential hacking issues. We’ve been using it for a few months now and are really pleased with it. It came with 2 cameras and has a split screen viewing option so if you have multiple children you can see them at the same time.

Tapo camera, links to phone, you can have lots in different rooms. They cost about £30 per cam and have found them reliable. You can purchase on Amazon/Argos

We have an Invidyo. It was easy on the pocket and also works fabulously with advanced AI tech. We mainly use it for lullabies and nighttime as it has a big range of lullabies and also amazing night vision. Waiting to start using it for sleep training as well soon

We have a vtech.
Absolutely love it, was about £70, picture is good and battery on the monitor lasts longer than others.

We got the bt one with the screen, seems excellent, I think it was about 90 pounds but it works brilliantly all over the house and doesn't have anything to do with WiFi so it should be secure enough. You can set it up to only light up when the baby makes a noise or on all the time . The screen has battery so you can take it down the garden or whatever.
You can also talk back to the baby (or more likely your partner) which is handy for a 2 way conversation sometimes.

Hi my boy is 19 months old and sleeps in with me when he wakes up I take him in. We have a super king bed but he likes to be close to me but am anxious in case something happens. Has anyone used any time of clip on monitor in this situation?? I can’t see anything online about it, so just wondering. Any recommends would be gratefully recieved!
