Welcome to paranoid parenthood…

We moved the baby to his crib when he was only 4 weeks old.

At that same time we learned of 2 babies of women I had talked to occasionally that died from SIDS. (both babies born within days of Miles.)

We were both shocked..and scared more than anyone could imagine.

We knew it was important to move him to his crib but still worried about doing the right thing and him being safe..

When to the rescue comes the AngelCare monitor!!!

This is SERIOUSLY the best investment I have EVER made..
If they weren’t so expensive I would buy one for every one I know.

The monitor is amazing.. it has a pad that goes under the mattress and detects movement. It is sensitive enough to detect every breath the baby makes.

It comes with these awesome monitors that we can hear everything through, but they also tell us the temperature in his room and have a movement que that shows us every movement.

If there is no movement detected in an alarm goes off. (loud beep..)
then 5 seconds later if no movement is detected yet a louder alarm goes off.
It will also alarm if his room gets too cold or too hot (we set the temperature range..)

I don’t know what we’d ever do without this monitor. We are able to sleep soundly knowing if anything goes wrong we’ll know about it.

We never have to go check on him at night.. we can see from our room that the temperature is comfortable.. and that he’s breathing…

It has been truly amazing and I recommend it to EVERYONE!

I think we’ll even use it when he’s older. Once he’s in a big boy bed it will be nice to know if he ever gets up!

The only thing that would make it better would be a video monitor so we could actually see if he’s awake or just whining in his sleep!

We’ve never had one scare.. thank goodness!

We couldn’t live without this.. it has definitely brought us one little shred of sanity…


  1. I just may have to invest in one of those – for some reason, both Josh and I are so paranoid about SIDS. I don’t even know anyone that has lost a child from SIDS, but I swear we are always both checking on Abby to make sure she is breathing!
