Product Reviews Baby Monitors

For her first nine months, your baby is tethered to you via the umbilical cord. After that, it’s the baby monitor that becomes your surrogate umbilical cord—enabling you to work in the garden, wander about the house, and do many things that other, childless human beings do, while still keeping tabs on a sleeping baby. Hence, this is a pretty important piece of equipment you’ll use every day—a good one will make your life easier . . . and a bad one will be a never-ending source of irritation.
