Good deal - but to be honest, we'd have paid whatever needed for this when son was little, thought it was fab and gave me a piece of mind that, ironically, I felt money couldn't buy. But this is a bit cheaper and much posher than ours 3 years ago :thumbsup::thumbsup::thumbsup:

agreed my son had one too, ours was the white and yellow which i presume yours was - this comes highly reccommended and a must for any parent imo

Yep thats right, very simple, but the parent unit looks much more advanced on this. I agree, they should almost be compulsory!

Don't waste your money. Put it in a bank account for your child(ren) and don't give in to paranoia. Your kids will be fine!

Just wanted to add that one of these saved my baby's life three years ago. She stopped breathing and the alarm alerted us. Paranoia has it's place but babies are too precious to take any chances. If I'd listened to the above poster, I would have lost my baby because she would NOT have been 'fine'.
So great post and heat given.

Changed merchant to argos, rather than nursery and toys. Welcome to HUKD sahara & sebaseba.

I had one and recommend it thorougly. I slept much sounder when i had this as i worried less(especially when they were ill) and got a better nights sleep.

i wish i had this with my son, he may still be here today! if we had made sure he was in his crib everynight with a sensor. so paranoia is not really the point here. :x

glad ur baby was ok. 60 quid is nothing in the grand scale of things. people spend more on two months worth of sky tv, and i certainly prefer my little man with me today than some sixty quid extra in my account.

paranoia is surely better than pure ignorance "your baby will be fine" NOBODY can know this!!!

if id known about these monitors my daughter would still be here, rhianne stopped breathing and died in her sleep this may of saved her life. children are so precious these should defo be compulsory. im pregnant again and will pay absolutley any amount to give my baby that extra chance and myself a little piece of mind.

they are priceless!! all my friends have these and swear by them, i hope you find one. :thumbsup:
#15
argos do a tommie tippie one, its £44 and reading the reviews it seems to compare with the angel care one.
#16
Be carefull when buying this as its Analogue, we had one and the signal was very poor. We took it back and swapped it for a Digital one and the difference is amazing, you can hear every single movement.
The guy in the shop said the analogue ones can be affected by anything like wireless internet etc.

DO U KNOW THAT SOCIAL SERVCE WILL PROVIDE U WITH ONE FOR FREE. I was told this after i had already bought mine x
#18
ah right the angelcare one is digital... damn even more irritating that I can't get one sent from argos or that there are none in the northeast.

Do you have any links or further information on this?
#21
think social services only supply if there is a particular risk, ie happened to family before.

My daughter stopped breathing in my arms so was able to revive her, but if i hadnt had this machine dont think id have ever slept again.

to the poster ...Don't waste your money. Put it in a bank account for your child(ren) and don't give in to paranoia. Your kids will be fine!........... Not everyone is that lucky. THESE ARE NOT WASTED MONEY.

My love goes out to all with losses.

This might help
A Little bit more expensive but you can get them from
Babies R Us £79.99
http://www.toysrus.co.uk/SearchResults.aspx?zone=Bru&kw=Angelcare
or Anglecare website £74.99
http://www.angelcaremonitor.co.uk/
#23
yup have the angelcare website bookmarked now, i'll be purchasing one if the argos site doesn't sort itself out in the next few days. I have until end of dec to get one so no real rush but glad i read this post or I'd have bought one for twenty quid or so.

yeah found social services provide them for parents with hearing difficulties etc.

Cool :thumbsup: the unit doesn't quite look the same, may be an older model?

This threads got me terrified, told my other half i should read about this kinda thing!

Hi,

Can someone please explain how these work?.
Expecting twins, and would like to know., for obvious reasons.

None anywhere in stock in the Merseyside region also everyone.
#28
Am pretty sure the one Argos are selling is the AC401 whereas the link to the amazon one is the AC301.

The AC401 is well rated on amazon and is currently £74.99 so if you can got the one from argos and it is the same one, that's pretty good.

in regards tp social services u are entitleted only if lost baby. i dont know how u go about it but suggest you ask midwife or contact them directly. as i say i wasnt told until i had already bought one and felt it was unfair to take a free one just beacuse i was entitled, i had already saved up and spent the money anyway so didnt want to take away from someone that needed obvioulsy.

they have a mat hat goes under the matress and they sense tiny movement, if it doesnt sense movement in 3mins then an alarm sounds (although u can turn the alarm off) it makes a clicking noise everytime it sences a movement, my friend stayed at my home a few times and very sweet;y said they were worried the clicking would keep them awake but later said that they found the sound comforting because they knew it meant tabatha was ok. which is onbvioulsy how i felt but she's my daughter so i would.

you would need the twins in seperate cots for these to work as if one did stop moving the sensor would still pick up the others movement so obvioulsy not alert you.

also important to check that when u take baby out of the cot, stand away from cot and make sure that the alarm does sound, as if u placed cot next to a slight regular movement then i t will sence that movement and ovbvioulsy not sound, so may need to move cot. we had to do this. as there was a vibration from water pipes that was unoticable to us but was enough to make the sensor think there was a baby in it. :)

So sorry for your loss and others that have posted on this board. I can't imagine what you have been through.

I know people are saying about it just being for paranoid parents but if there is even a 1% chance of it happening to your child it is well worth it.

You lose nothing in buying this as they sell easily on again as they can be real life savers.

I cannot thank you enough for telling us about this and please thank your sister, iv recently found out im pregnant and after already losing my baby girl to cot death iv been an absolute wreck with worry, i read your thread, followed your link and cried my heart out as this is prob just what iv wanted. i will get the hospital monitor but thats all wires and to heavy for a little baby or clumsy for a crawling baby and i will get the angelcare monitor but that wont help when shes asleep in her pram, travel cot etc this is just what i needed thank you.
#36
Also be aware that the alarm can go off if the baby wriggles its way right up the end of the cot and off the sensor mat as i discovered when my son did it twice.

I had one of these when they first came out 8 years ago!!! Cost us around £70 then. Great value and they hold their value. A couple of months ago I flogged it on eBay for £42! Pay extra for this in the comfort that you can get at least half your money back years later!!
