ordered thx op :)

Have one of these, Great have a couple of false alarms but well worth it.
#3
Good price, but won't vote, I ditched mine after the first baby too many false alarms and when he did stop breathing no alarm! Hopefully it's changed it's design now.

Oh and he is fine btw, thank god I was in the same room, hospital stay later for obs and he was fine.

I have one of these as well. We don't get many false alarms, you just have to make sure that the pad is placed centrally so that the baby (no matter how much is moves in the night) has some contact with it. Definitely the best baby monitor out there at the moment unless you want to go the whole hog for video surveillance.
#5
best baby monitor, breathing pad worked fine for us, no false alarms, but better to have something and not need it than need it and not have it.
#6
Got one. Works well. Good thing is, can changed microphone sensitivity, so doesn't always relay background noise from baby's room. Would recommend it.
#7
We have one of these and used for both our kids. Couple of false alarms when rolled off the sensor pad, but the piece of mind it provides for young babies is invaluable.

Voted hot for price.

I had one of these for number 6 who was a tummy sleeper (wouldn't have bothered otherwise) and it was fine, no false alarms, but did go off when we picked her up and forgot to turn it off (husband!). Used it for 5 months, until she was naturally rolling and moving anyway, and then sold on ebay for £45!

Should rename these AngelSCARE - given the problems they're known to have with false alarms.

Get a standard monitor and preserve your own life for a few extra years.

Got one of these 2 and a half years ago for our second child for around £65 in boots. It's definitely one of our best purchases and we're still using it today. We had a normal monitor for our first child, and used to wake up to every little sound and was forever getting up to check him.

With this product, I can honestly say it adds a layer of reassurance, and we sleep alot better. Never had any false alarms (apart from when we pick him up and forget to turn it off first). I guess as long as you position the mat in the correct place, you should be fine.

Great offer - and don't forget to access the site via the Nectar website to get your nectar points.

I'm not sure I've seen a report of a false alarm where it wasn't because the baby / child had rolled off the pad? (And by the time they're old enough to do that then there's probably less need for this kind of monitor.) The only other issue might be with a thick mattress where you've not adjusted the sensitivity, but the instructions tell you how to do that.

We've had no issue so far with our two-and-a-bit-week old: the only time it's gone off was when we took the baby out without cancelling the sensor.

Almost all the 95 reviews on Amazon are 4 or 5 star, but maybe you've done your own more accurate survey...?

Incidentally, if you want the version with two handsets, we got it new for about £85 on a certain auction site - generally seems to be a lot more through standard retailers. The BT 150 (which is probably the other most popular monitor) was also on there through an 'official' BT outlet, refurbished, for £45 I think.

I can't comment on this particular model, but I've had two other sensor pad monitors over the past 8 years for my two kids and they're absolutely fantastic. I know so many new parents who are forever prodding their newborns to make sure they're still breathing. The peace of mind that you get from being able to be in a different room and yet "see" their breathing on a remote monitor simply can't be underestimated. False alarms? As mentioned elsewhere, they can happen if the pad is in the wrong place or when they start moving around a lot as they get older, but I still wouldn't be without a monitor of this type for a minute. I'd far rather have the odd false alarm than NOT know when something serious is wrong.

how loud are these is there a way to turn the volume down on the alarm?
#17
We've got one, the temperature monitor is a bit off (1-3 degrees higher than it is (as confirmed by different thermometers (grow bag, boots' own digital one, a mercury based one we had, and an air temp one, mounted on a card for hanging up)))

We didn't use the breathing alarm (kept going off) - but turning the sensitivity right down on it, we use it as a rough guide for the temp - and to listen out. Though, with the pitch and volume our little one cries at, I wonder if we really do need it :).
