Baby monitors give parents peace of mind when their baby is sleeping and they want to enjoy a bit of downtime, or need to get on with household chores while they have their hands free. VTech baby monitors have great features like night vision video, thermometers for keeping an eye on room temperature and portable parent units, so that you can move about the house while always keeping one eye on your child. Angelcare baby monitors have similar features, with their sensor mat baby monitor being a popular option. This type of monitor has a mat that fits under the mattress and can be set to send you an alarm if no movement is detected for 20 seconds. As most new parents with a newborn will tell you, there’s a constant temptation to check on your baby all the time as they sleep and this is usually not needed. A sensor mat monitor alerts you if anything seems unusual and, once your baby is becoming more mobile, you can simply remove the pad and continue to use the monitor as a standard baby monitor.
As your child gets older and moves out of a cot and into a bed of their own you can make their sleep extra secure with the addition of a bed rail. Small children roll around a lot at night and can often take a tumble out of bed. A bed rail will stop them from falling out making sure they get a good night’s sleep (and you too). When they do wake make sure they have a nightlight so that they don’t panic in the dark and you can see your way safely to their bed if you have to come into comfort them.
Keep them safe when you’re out and about too with a set of toddler reins, so they can walk and feel autonomous, but you have control over where they go and ensure they don’t have any accidents. Our baby safety range also includes health products including thermometers and baby scales so you can keep a close eye on your baby’s health.
