What? Surely not *more* utterly pointless than your comment oO

People buy these for 'peace of mind'. I myself didn't use the mat thing, but a lot of parents just feel 'better' doing so. Hardly pointless for a worrying first timer or someone who's experienced a loss...

Our son had 3 apneas during his first few months. Two of which led to hospitilization. Thankfully hes still here and we actually got some sleep thanks to this! (The little heard of third scenario) Its also a fab monitor and we paid double for it!!

I bought this monitor a year ago for £75 and it has been invaluable. It has only once gone off as a false alarm when the sensor pad was dislodged as I must have moved it when I'd changed the cot sheets earlier in the day. My daughter is 11 months old now and we stopped using the pad and bought a video monitor last month when she started sleeping in different sleeping positions in the cot. We found it brilliant and it really put my mind at rest. Also, the temperature on this monitor was always spot on. The temperature on the new motorola video monitor has been 25 C for the last three weeks. :-/ This monitor is excellent.

This site is all about saving money. Funds are tight enough when having a child, mum giving up work etc., without the needless purchase of expensive gadgets that won't actually help you.....


This site is about saving money, the monitor is reduced from it's normal price and so this post will save people money. It is not about whether you think it's worth it, if it's not for you don't comment. Clearly others (including myself) think it's a good bit of kit. However there can be no doubt that at this price it is a deal.
#13
I sometimes wonder why there is a comments section at all, there may as well be just a big "pat on the back" button.

I'm entirely free to comment, that's what the section is for...discussion about the deal. What I shouldn't do is vote cold - because it's a good deal, for snake oil.

Fab monitor at a great price and it no way 'pointless' it brought us peace of mind and the ability to sleep knowning our baby was safe in another room as we were uable to fit a cot in ours. I personally loved the mat, especially when our little one had the tendency to roll into the side of the moses basket. We also paid double (thanks to Boots points ;)

This product does not bring any health benefits whatsoever for your child. Any perceived safety benefits over a simple audio monitor are negligible. The "piece of mind" it brings is simply a placebo effect.

Of course it doesn't bring any health benefits it's a 'Monitor' !!! The 'Peace' of mind is exactly what any parent wants and what a monitor is designed for! The simple fact is if your child stopped breathing, it gives you a chance to do something about it. I don't know why everyone feels the need to be so padantic about a parent's choice for their child. It's a good price for a monitor that has been double this for a long time, simple as that.
#17
Nice side step :3
#18
So what exactly would you do if the alarm went off? Does the device come with some kind of paediatric resuscitation course that I may have overlooked?

This thing won't even beep if the cat goes and sits on your child's face, smothering them...cats are never still enough.

I don't know of a single case where one of these mat devices has beeped and allowed a parent to save a life. They don't even use them for new borns in hospital. Reason for that.
#19
Should the worst happen and the baby stops breathing you could ring 999 and get help & start resuscitation, you've a great deal better chance of a good outcome by doing this immediately. If you read the Amazon reviews you will see a lot of people have had scary experiences where these monitors have been invaluable.
#20
Great deal and great product. We had one, went off and when I went up my son had stopped breathing, I picked him up in a panic and he gaped and started breathing again. Chances are he would have done that on his own but I'll never know. I nothing else if it does offer a placebo comfort to parents it's a good price to get some sleep which is invaluable when they are little :-) heat from me OP :-)
#21
*gasped
#22
I went in my babies room to check on him once and he'd stopped breathing. I stood, staring at the motionless body. The panic hit me. I called my other half, "can you come upstairs please?", scared of saying what I had found. When they arrived, we looked together. Baby rolled over and started staring.

Thanks god there wasn't a loud beeping at the time, I'd have been hysterical.
#23
I'd much rather have an alarm that signals a problem and give me an opportunity (no matter how small) to act, over waking up in the morning to a dead baby and wondering....what if???

This product does what it's designed to do especially for FTM's, albeit with the occasional false alarm.

I think most people would prefer the scare of the beeping to be given the chance to be alerted to the problem.

Not sure if you have children but each parent to thier own, if people already want to buy this it's a great deal. And most people who don't want to by it have moved on to a post more suitable to them.
#25
Sorry misread, see you have children. Each to their own, I just personally love the product an would have one for our next child

I can see your point of view here, but there are some gaps in this post in particular that seem to underpin your entire argument.

You are correct, that if you don't know the first thing about how to even attempt to resuscitate a child then the beeping is nothing but a soundtrack to an awful moment.

However, there are a large raft of human beings who would have basic resuscitation training or who view their responsibility as a parent to know how to best protect their child. They may of attended a first aid course, they may themselves be a nurse or doctor or, like my wife & I, they may of attended a course in the hospital.

Don't quote me on this but if your child had been born prematurely then resuss courses are pretty much mandatory (at least they are in the hospital we stayed in).

Secondly, they don't use these specific units in a hospital - that is correct. They use stick on ones on babies tummy. They only use them on babies who are at risk of apnoea (I'm presuming due to the cost, although it may well be to quell the neurotic parents we all become!) but they do use them... And if they go off, the first bit of advice is to tickle their toes, and do you know what, I think just about anybody can do this.

Like I said earlier, our son had frequent bouts of neglecting to breathe. Im not for a second saying this device saved his life because not one of them happened in a cot at home, but it did save both of our sanity and buy us months of sleep. We had one false alarm in a year and we'll soon be using this on baby 2. And for this price, irrespective of the mat, its a blooming bargain!

And after your expert opinion I'm not buying a homicidal cat. :)

when I was pregnant with my little boy I wasn't going to bother getting monitors. However when he was born he had problems with his heart rate. my brother advised me to get this one as he knew other parents who had it for thier kids and raved about it. in the end I didn't actually end up using the mat but I still use the monitors and my son is now 14 months old. They are fantastic. it allows you to do other things like have a shower, do the dishes, weed the garden etc and know that your child is ok. it has a great range on it so yo don't have to worry about losing signal with it. this is a fabulous price. I really hope a store near me gets them back in stock soon at this price. I will be purchasing another and putting away for when my sister has kids.

Was a major fear of mine with our first born. The cat loved walking around in the night and coming and sitting on our bed, often on my pillow/head. With baby in a crib next to our bed, and then in a cot in his own room, I was utterly paranoid that she would go and sit on him and smother him in the night. Enough to choose to lock the cat up each night so she couldn't prowl unnoticed. She did scratch at baby's bedroom door a few times during daytime naps.
