review: angelcare monitor

Like I said in a post or two back, since Kennedy's apnea monitor is gone; we got the angelcare monitor! & for those mommas thinking about it, I wanted to tell ya'll what I thought...GET IT!

It is amazing! We can only use it in her bassinet obviously so when we are bed-sharing it doesn't work as well..which is where I'm thinking to get the snuza. Butt, I love that it tells the temp in the room, it has a nice little night light on the receiver, my end vibrates if it has a alarm & since she does sleep right next to us you don't get the "microphone too close shriek" It also lights up so you can see what is displayed on the screen in the middle of the night. Oh, & for those of you who always lose your cellphone. keys, remote..yes you.. they have a page button to help you find the remote if you lose it!

see it looks like a angel :)
There is also a feature called "tick" it ticks whenever it detects movement/breathing; I was just informed it is also known as the "psycho mom feature"....I totally use it. & love it! It gives me such a piece of mind. 

My one complaint is you can put it on the noise feature so it goes off when baby cries, I don't like that she need to be screaming for it too pick up, whereas a normal monitor is on all the time so I can even pick up on the light whines.

So, pretty much what I am saying is..if you are losing sleeping wondering about SIDS/your baby breathing, I think this is defiantly worth the investment!

PS wanna see Kennedy in the outfit I made? Check it out on the 365 page

  1. Glad to hear that you gave this one a thumbs up! I put this monitor on my registry and it looks like someone already purchased it :)

  2. Thank you so much for this post. I heard about it AFTER I had Lyla and was really thinking about purchasing. It's always nice to hear a "real" and "honest" review.

  3. We just got this monitor as well! Our little Peanut won't be arriving until next month, but I already got it all set up and charged and ready to go :) We're planning on having our little dude sleep in his crib in his own room right away (his room is only a couple steps away from ours) and Hubby G and I loved the peace of mind that a motion monitor could give us.

    As far as the monitor only going off when baby cries- I think that's a setting you can change? When I tested ours out last week I could constantly hear everything (even though there's no baby here quite yet!) I think if the little microphone icon is off then you should have constant sound transmitting. Hope that helps!
