I am a new mum and I have found this a must-have.

Abi Tailor, Made for Mums
20 May 2009
  • Summary: This product gave me extra piece of mind and stopped me getting up in the night to check my little girl was still breathing (we've all been there)! It is pricey but I think it's definitely worth paying that bit extra.
  • Pros: Great clarity of sound, easily transportable, I like the nightlight and temperature functions, it also has a sensor pad which sounds an alarm if there is no movement for 20 seconds
  • Cons: Quite expensive at nearly £80, I have heard from other mums it can give false alarms

FANTASTIC BUT ONE SMALL ISSUE DEPENDING HOW YOU PLAN TO USE

Julie Woodward, Made for Mums
15 October 2008
  • Summary: Excellent value for money... just be sure that you will always be in a position to use the sensor mat, otherwise you'll need a supplementary monitor for those occasions.
  • Pros: The clarity is fantastic. The piece of mind of the sensor is great, we have had a couple false alarms but only about 2 or 3 so minor compared to the piece of mind it gives us.
  • Cons: The main weakness is that you can only use the monitor so long as the mat is plugged in. Our baby grew out of his moses basket quickly and we put him in a travel cot - the mat hasn't worked too well in that so we have had to buy another sound only monitor to use until he gets in to his proper cot.

... these a couple of years ago and I cannot recommend them enough

  • Summary: I had one of these a couple of years ago and I cannot recommend them enough! Unfortunately I sold it as we had decided to only have two children but I fell pregnant again last year. I loved it so much I bought another. They are fantastic! Very sensitive so pick up every movement and sound baby makes. Very reassuring.

Good but a little hassle to set up

Samzz, Amazon
18 December 2014
  • Summary: I've only had this about a month but so far it's been working well. Its not gone off by mistake but I know it works since it goes off if you lift baby and forget to turn it off but when you do this it gives a one beep warning before its full alarm 5 seconds later. So you have time to turn off quickly, unless of course you're like my forgetful husband who just saunters in, swoops baby up and heads downstairs! !! Everytime!! Little complex to set up.

Excellent monitor clear sound and not on all the time ...

lindsay, Amazon
9 December 2014
  • Summary: Excellent monitor clear sound and not on all the time which is good just clicks on when baby makes a noise. Only downside for me was that to use the movement sensor you need a piece of board for underneath the sensor and until you unpack and read the instructions properly there is nothing telling you this.

Great monitor for peace of mind.

  • Summary: Works really well, picks up baby's breathing just fine, a real comfort hearing the rhythmic bleep of his breathing when you're away from the room. I take off 1 star because the parent unit is a bit quiet - the volume isn't always loud enough to be heard in a noisy kitchen. But overall a must have for new parents, especially these days when they put the fear of god in you from day one!

Good but with flaws

RJ246 , johnlewis.com
23 April 2014
  • Summary: Overall pleased with the monitor, which was bought to replace a sound only monitor. The movement mat really gives me peace of mind and is working well even though my son has taken to rolling right to the side of the cot.

Very good

NRCM, Amazon
24 February 2014
  • Summary: This monitor has served us well for both children. The sound is clear, and it seems to have a decent range on it - i.e. it still works a considerable distance away from the baby / main unit. The breathing monitor is great reassurance. There is a setting whereby you can have it do a gentle beep whilst the baby is breathing - which we used a lot with our 1st baby.

A mostly very well thought-through and put together product, liked the different set-up options

James K, Amazon
4 January 2014
  • Summary: We actually had this product for six months before we really used it, when we moved our son to his nursery we needed the monitor function. Generally not too much trouble to set the device up, although it's a bit of a pain that the monitor unit has to be a certain distance away from the sensor - I can imagine this being an issue for parents who want to set up their nursery in a particular way and have to change the layout to accommodate the Angelcare.
