Need advice please on the best movement sensor . My daughter has sleep problems and goes into very deep sleep and then holds her breath!she is being seen by doctors . I have a video monitor but doesnt give me peace of mind and im having about 2 hours sleep a night as constantly watching her ! I have read that some can keep going off for no reason (tommee tippee) can anyone suggest some that they have tried and tested please ??

Hi, we have used the Angelcare AC401 Baby Movement Sensor Pad and Sound Monitor for nearly 14months now without much issue. We did need to adjust the sensitivity when moving to a larger cot and have had a few false alarms (our little one likes to lay near the sides). It does have a delay between movement not being detected and the alarm going off, which may be long enough for when your daughters' movement is reduced, but you could increase the sensitivity (being careful with any vibrations from within the room)? When we first got it we spent some time getting set-up and testing it - once this initial stage was over we had more confidence that it would do what we needed. I think most sensors have their pros and cons, so I guess it's a case of choosing one that fits your needs the most, the one we chose seemed to meet most of ours.

I would absolutely recommend a nanny mat. Nanny Breathing Monitor. It is really simple to connect and use. It covers a much larger area than others and can be hooked up to a second mat to increase the coverage even further. I have used it for 6 months in a cot bed and have been very happy with it.

I have the Angelcare AC1100 which is a sound, camera and movement monitor. I agree with T Waller, and I took a little while to get the sensitivity right as the cot bed has a thick mattress, but once set up it has been very good. I think it has a delay if you have removed the child and forgotten to turn it off first. I have done this on occasion so I know it works, and I'm sure the neighbours do too because it really is loud. You could always adjust the sensitivity to give you peace of mind. I have had this for approx 15mths and no issues. But keep the parent unit away from the microwave and laptop as this seems to interrupt the signal at my place. Maybe obvious if you are technically minded but I found that out myself!

I'm really pleased my experience and advice has been helpful. Good luck when the monitor arrives. My daughter has now pulled the monitor off the bedside table a couple of times, and it still works!

I would say that the Angelcare monitor is the best thing I have ever spent my money on. I needed something to offer peace of mind during the night and this has allowed me to sleep easier. I recommended to all my expecting friends. It has occasionally gone off when baby sleeps at the side or end of the cot, and yes it is loud but its a small price to pay. They also have this type of equipment in SCBU so I have been told. Viv x

Angelcare AC1100 Video with Movement and Sound Monitor Anyone who is troubled by which monitor to buy STOP now . Believe me i have researched them all laid awake thinking and worrying about affording them (dramatic i know but my baby girl has sleep disorder holds her breath!) searched other sites for cheaper ones . Im a single parent of 3 so money is tight and i know not everyone can afford this but ask family and friends to help ,i did ! You cant put a price on peace of mind ! Angelcare 3 in 1 is pricey but you could be using this for years. I really cant say enough about this it does it all ,the video is clear sound is great and being able to talk to her without going up and down the stairs is great . The sensor matt did baffle me a bit but thats more because im not technically minded at all,but i got there . The only negative was that the cord from the nursery unit isnt very long. Im not going to drown on but i feel that this monitor is the best on the market . my baby girl is now sleeping safe and sound which makes me a very happy mummy :) . I hope this helps anyone who is having the same problem i was ? P. S thank you to all who commented . Enjoy your little ones :)
