I was very impressed, came well packaged and even comes with batteries. The design is very simple but stylish. Would benefit from having a wireless remote. I really rate the concept of the baby breathing monitor. As a new parent the responsibility is overwhelming. Therefore reassurance like this is so helpful. It actually allowed me to chill out a little which is definitely needed after a day with a toddler and newborn! Being able to fall asleep without the worry of not waking up if baby was to roll onto his tummy was wonderful. The concept allows parents some down time knowing that their little one is safe and happy! The instructions are clear and easy to follow. The font used makes them very easy to read. Can’t fault them! This was very easy to set up once I’d read the instructions. The wires are a slight annoyance, seemed to get tangled when fitting but easily untangled. If the monitor was wireless it would make it much easier to install. This was very clear to see and effective. As soon as baby is picked up the alarm sounds. We had it fitted in our next to me crib and there were no issues with Eddie reaching it. It has definitely given us peace of mind. As an anxious person, this has been a god’s send! It has allowed me to relax which has resulted in me not having to check Eddie every two seconds. The alarm sounds as soon as the baby is picked up. It is very loud, I can confidently say that I would wake up to it even if I was in a deep sleep! The sensory pad is a good size. We took this on holiday with us to my parents who has a Moses basket and it fitted well in that, which is smaller than our next to me crib. The alarm is very loud! My concern was that if the door was to close slightly that I wouldn’t hear it from another room, therefore I made sure doors were always propped open. If the monitor remote with the alarm was wireless this would be handy. I would consider upgrading and getting a second sensor pad. We use many rooms in the house for Eddie’s naps and having to move the monitor every time is annoying. Therefore I would purchase another for a different room. This did give me peace of mind. It took me a few test runs until I was confident that it worked efficiently however I now have complete confidence in this monitor and it has eased my nerves so much! We had this in Eddie’s next to me crib which he sleeps in every evening and also in his crib in the living room. Mainly used this in our bedroom while he slept at night. This is also ideal to take with you when visiting relatives and ideal to take on holiday. We actually did it. We took it with us when visiting my parents and it was easy to pack and gave us peace of mind to have dinner etc in the evenings without having to check on Eddie constantly. Coming with a two year guarantee is important to me. Not only does it show that the manufacturer is responsible but it’s also an expensive item. Having a guarantee makes me feel more inclined to purchase this. The quality of this monitor can’t be faulted. I think it’s definitely worth the price tag! I like the fact that the alarm is very loud and the simple yet effective style. I really can’t find many cons to this product other than the remote being wireless so that you can take it into other rooms with you. Good value especially when you have a guarantee for the life of the product. For a parent the peace of mind this provides is worth far more than the price tag. I would buy this. With my eldest son I used a video monitor. I really wish I’d have known about this product then. I now don’t need to stare at the monitor to see if he’s breathing. I would recommend and my cousin has just had a premature baby and I think this would be excellent for her. I would highly recommend this product. This product is great! The peace of mind it provides is every new parents dream. The only negative is the remote not being portable to take into other rooms. If someone has a large house I would worry that they may not hear the alarm. It’s loud and in our house there were no issue ,however, I feel it would be amazing if this were wireless! I have thoroughly enjoyed testing this product. It has provided me with peace of mind to sleep, without having to set alarms to check on Eddie throughout the night. It is simple and easy to use and even comes with batteries – very rare these days! I would recommend this to every new parent, but especially the parents who are anxious like me. Newborn’s are so delicate and with the reassurance of the alarm it allows new mums the time to relax and fully recover! Top marks to the manufacturer. Definitely recommend this product.
Sleek design not overly bulky, looked simple to install/set up, whimsical stickers. Nice and compact, not entirely sure the stickers are required as it’s not really going to “used/played with” by a child, the stickers also make the attached unit much bigger than it probably needs to be. Great idea, gives peace of mind to parents/caregivers, reassurance that your child is ok, less intrusive than some others on the market like the “sock” and doesn’t give ever vital statistic of your child which can be a little OTT, getting their breathing rate is spot on as this is a good indicator of an issue. Simple and straight forward instructions, made for a quick set up, nothing extra needed. This was very quick and simple to set up. We have used it on 3 cots and each time it has been easy. (one when on holiday, one in the bedside cot, one in larger cot in nursery when baby transitioned to her room). The lights are simple and helpful, I particularly like the fact the light mirrors the breathing, this is my favourite feature as I can tell when she is unsettled or about to wake as her breathing changes. I can quickly look at the light in the middle of the night to check she is ok rather than turning on a nightlight and staring at her chest to watch her breath which isn’t always easy when half asleep! I think that it is a little on the large side and could be made smaller, the large face at the top doesn’t seem to serve a purpose. The feature design ensuring baby cannot reach this is a good design feature. However my very long legged very active baby did manage to pull the wire with her foot and get it wrapped round her leg. I would worry that someone would put this at the top of the cot and an arm could do the same. I would prefer a wireless connection between the mat and the unit for additional safety. The alarm is very helpful although I would say the volume of the beep when you turn the mat on is excessive and ideally could be significantly quieter as on numerous occasions the noise woke our baby after we had put her down once we turned it on. Luckily the alarm has never sounded as a result of her having a problem with her breathing but it does sound if we have forgotten to turn it off as we take her out of the cot. The size of the mat is good and almost filled her next to me bedside cot, it is still a good size for her larger cot in her own room and we have positioned it at the end where she sleeps so it is effective. It is large enough that if she moves a lot (which our wriggler does) it will still pick up her breathing rate. Our daughter has recently started side sleeping and I was worried it wouldn’t pick it up but it does not problem which is great and provides further reassurance. Having just recently hit the 6 months mark and just moved her into her own room this was a great feature as we could hear the alarm from downstairs and through her monitor. I would purchase a second sensor bad as her larger cot in her nursery is so big (it converts into a toddler bed) it would be useful having a second one to completely fill the length of the cot and bed once we change it to give complete peace of mind. She is a very active wriggly baby so if she continues to be as a toddler I can imagine her sleeping at both ends of her bed so 2 mats would be very helpful. I love the fact the light mirrors the breathing, this is my favourite feature as I can tell when she is unsettled or about to wake as her breathing changes. I can quickly look at the light in the middle of the night to check she is ok rather than turning on a nightlight and staring at her chest to watch her breath which isn’t always easy when half asleep! This also works great for her daytime naps too and I can check the monitor via our camera which gives me comfort during the day. We have used this every day. We used this in my daughter’s bedside next to me cot as we have only recently transitioned her to her own room and larger cot. We also took the next to me bedside cot on holiday with us and took the mat with us too. This is ideal to take on your travels as it is so compact it’s easy to pack for a holiday as we have already experienced. Most baby products come with 2 year guarantees these days as standard so it’s not something I actively look out for or would sway my mind into a purchase but it is a good offer and ensures quality is upheld if you have any issues which is always a good thing. The good point of a 2 year guarantee is it shows a company is confident in their product quality. Great, overall it’s a fab product that has given me peace of mind, my only feedback would be reduce the volume of the beep when you turn it on and look into making it wireless as my daughter managed to pull the wire with her feet even though it was tightly tucked away. I really liked the light mirroring her breathing gave me such reassurance and gave me an indication of if she wasn’t settled or was about to wake. This is great value and it’s a safety product which you can’t really put a price on, I would even consider using it longer than 2 years as it does a good job. 100% I would purchase one, I was very sceptical about these types of products before testing one and now I wish I had had one since I was in the hospital with my daughter when I was afraid to go to sleep in case she stopped breathing. It’s a simple sleek design that gives me the peace of mind I’ve been after and my husband is pleased I no longer thump him awake in the night to confirm to me she is breathing (she sleeps on his side of the bed). Now we have moved her into her own bedroom I am so relieved I won’t have to keep getting up and going into her room to check her breathing, I can just check the monitor and the lights. I would recommend as it’s so simple to use and isn’t too over the top with lots of different monitors, and the peace of mind you get is unquestionable. Great, overall it’s a fab product that has given me peace of mind, my only feedback would be reduce the volume of the beep when you turn it on and look into making it wireless as my daughter managed to pull the wire with her feet even though it was tightly tucked away. I have been very nervous as a first time mum of a rainbow baby who has said a couple of friends sadly lose their babies to SIDS, I constantly have checked her breathing since birth, and regularly waking my husband in the night to confirm her is breathing when I cannot see/hear her well enough (she sleeps on his side of the bed). Having this product now gives me such peace of mind and reassurance that we will be alerted if there is an issue. I appreciate you cannot 10000% rely on technology but this has given me so much comfort its priceless. I would highly recommend this product the fact that it mirrors her breathing rhythm with a light is great and is such a good indicator of if she is stirring or in a deep sleep. The light is not overly bright and didn’t bother us in the room. My only negative feedback would be reduce the volume of the beep when you turn it on as this woke my daughter on many occasions and look into making it wireless as my daughter managed to pull the wire with her feet even though it was tightly tucked away.
When this arrived it looked simple and easy to set up. Looks good, large enough (as long as your baby doesn’t wiggle to far down the cot) and simple to use. Brilliant idea for peace of mind while your babies sleeping. Instructions very easy to set up and understand how it works. Hasn’t been make- over complicated. This was simple to set up and go. Not over complicated like said above. The lights were very effective and only takes a matter of minutes to know how it works and what it means. I had no worries about it being disabled accidentally by my baby. It gave me complete peace of mind and confidence in this product. Luckily I didn’t have any problems with my babies breathing but tested the alarm and found it to be spot on. The sensory pad was a good size but I found once or twice that my baby moved down the bed during the night off of the pad. It could be bigger. The alarm is very loud and clear to hear. I could hear it in all the rooms even with a door closed. If my child was to stay over at a relatives more than once in a while I would consider buying an additional pad to leave with them. This monitor gave me total peace of mind. I was a bit sceptical about of it would but it definitely did. We used this every night and sometimes during the day. Mainly used this in the nursery. This is definitely ideal to take with you when visiting relatives and on holiday. I is compact so easy to pack and set up at your destination. Guarantees are always important, although the product feels good quality so would hope it would last longer than that. Amazing quality, feels and looks really well made. We liked how simple and easy it is to set up and use. Definitely value for money! Great price for the peace of mind it gives. Obviously I have this one but would definitely buy in the future if needed. I would recommend , especially if someone is nervous about leaving the baby a sleep in a different room to them. It stops you being on edge and worrying so much. Great item, simple to use and set up. Only downside is the pad could be a little bigger. But gives you peace of mind while your babies sleeping.
