Many parents consider baby monitors as a necessity when taking care of an infant at home. After all, there are many chores to attend to in the house while also watching over the baby. At this stage, it's important to ensure that you get to see every movement of your baby to see to it that he or she remains safe and well.
Video monitors are preferred over audio monitors because these can assure you more and help you to be aware of what's really happening. Sounds are not sufficient to let you know what's happening. Just hearing the audio may alert you but will likely make you get up in the middle of the night even if not really necessary.
