"Baby monitor plus" app for checking on my babysitter??


I downloaded this iPhone/iPad monitor app for alerting in case baby wakes up (it's a nice app that actually sends me an SMS when the baby is awaken) and I actually use it when the babysitter is with the baby, I leave my iPad on a hidden spot in the room and after I get an SMS alert, I wait a few minutes, and then call her to check up on little one... am I too paranoid/hysterical mom?? I just want to make sure she is not missing any case he awakes and I really don't like to think of him standing and screaming and crying without anyone hugging him....

Wow, never heard of that before! Not sure what to think about it lol. Might be better than using my actual baby monitor. Sometimes I don't hear until he's fully awake and by then he won't go back to sleep lol.

Not to be mean because I'm not a mean person this is just IMO but if I couldn't trust my babysitter to comfort my baby at all times and etc I dont think she would be watching the babes

I always have really mixed feelings about hidden cameras. I might be tempted to tell the babysitter a white lie like 'we were broken into once so we have security cameras in the house' or whatever sounds reasonable.

That's pretty much how I feel about it. If I didn't trust someone to look after my baby, there is no way I would leave them alone with my baby.

I would use it. I don't trust ANYone but myself with my baby. Sometimes, I NEED my sister to watch him for a couple of hours so I can get certain pregnancy-related appointments done without him being bored and yelling the whole time. But, I am nervous and uncomfortable the whole time. She has 2 kids of her own, and she loves my baby as much as she loves her own kids, so it's not that at all.. I don't even let my OH alone with my baby without feeling nervous. It's just because I spend all day, every day with him as a stay at home parent, and I don't feel like anyone knows him the way I do...

I can understand when you are leaving your child with a babysitter but I'm astounded that another poster in this thread said that she is nervous leaving her child with her sister and even her OH. Not to be nasty but that just seems a bit extreme and I honestly don't understand the "only I can do it right" attitude. Personally, I think there is an issue if you can't even bring yourself to trust and be comfortable leaving your child with close family or even the child's own father! I'm a stay at home parent as well and I'm with my daughter all day every day but I certainly feel totally fine for my family or husband to care for her. Even my 32 year old childless brother is an excellent babysitter (he changes, feeds, plays with etc.). Doesn't make a lot of sense to me.
