Choose The Perfect Baby Monitor

Baby Monitor

A baby monitor is something every parent needs. But what type are best for babies? Here are some tips to help you choose the perfect one.

Pick a model that fits into your lifestyle.

You’ll probably use it most often while you’re asleep, so make sure that the screen is big enough to see clearly without having to move around. Also consider whether you’d like to have a camera attached to the monitor, or just listen to sounds.

Consider battery life.

Many models offer multiple charging options, including AC power, USB, and batteries. Some even charge via Bluetooth. Look for those features that allow you to conserve energy.

Decide whether you want Wi-Fi capability.

This feature allows parents to connect the monitor to a smartphone app that lets you check on the baby remotely. A few apps let you control the light settings, too.

Choose a wireless range.

Depending on where you plan to place the monitor, look for a range of up to 300 feet.

Find a unit that offers good sound quality.

Make sure the volume isn’t too high or low. And look for a speaker system that produces clear, crisp audio.

Check out reviews.

Consumer Reports recommends checking online customer reviews, especially for units that cost less than $100.
