The Best Cheap Baby Monitors
On a budget? Check out our list of cheap baby monitors under £100.
The golden rule when you become a parent is to sleep when the baby sleeps. But sometimes it is easier said than done. With every new baby comes an extra ounce of worry. It’s also wise not to get started on phantom baby cries, which occur when you think your baby is crying, only to find them safe and sound asleep. Although you may feel like you are losing your mind, doctors say this is very normal.
Sleep deprivation can do crazy things to our brains, from putting the cereal in the fridge and the milk in the pantry. We know how difficult it can be to function properly when you lack much-needed rest. You can rest easy knowing your new bundle of joy is safe and sound with our collection of cheap baby monitors.
Different types of baby monitors
Audio Monitors – Audio monitors work a bit like a walkie-talkie. When your baby cries, you will be able to hear it through a monitor. Some will operate by charge others will use batteries or work wirelessly. These tend to be cheaper.
Digital monitors – A digital baby monitor allows you to see your baby as they sleep thanks to a camera and mini screen. Most digital monitors also allow you to hear your child when they cry. You will need to place a digital monitor somewhere safe where you can see the whole cot. Each manufacturer will specify the most suitable location for the monitor.
Wearable monitors – Wearable monitors tend to be the most expensive type of baby monitor. They operate by tracking your baby’s heart and breathing rate as they are sleeping. They usually have a digital monitor as well, and many use smartphone technology. Due to their high price point, we have not included any wearable monitors in this article on cheap baby monitors.
