Baby Monitor? More than one child?


We are gonna be moving into our new house about a week before due date

Anyways we will need a baby monitor mainly just for Jackson to start with as DD is big enough and baby will be downstairs until I go up to bed for the first couple of months or so BUT...................

When they're all upstairs and me and OH are down how are we gonna hear them all??? As they will all be in diff rooms?

Can you get monitors that have a couple of seperate child units?

Hmm i haven't thought of that. I'll be in the same situation soon. Our littlest one is still in with us, and both him and the baby probably will be for a while if it works ok, then ds will go in his older brother or sisters room. we already have a monitor in our room, so ill probably just buy another one for the other room

When my ds was born dd was only 22 months and I still needex to monitor her too as how house is quite a good size. I ended up getting a 2nd monitor for ds. But you can get baby monitors that have 2 bases and 1 handheld unit. I know you can get the angelcare/angelsounds monitor with 2 bases. GL

My toddler was 22 months when the new baby arrived and we could easily hear her without the monitor!!!

I wouldn't be comfortable just hearing for him to cry loud, he doesn't cry when he wakes up, he just moans and whinges, the house is a decent size so would prefer a monitor in each room.

Hmmmm I'll have to see. Thanks for the replies

xx

Oooh I hadn't thought of the possibility of getting a monitor with 2 handsets.

My dd is in her own room (she's 19 months) and I don't feel comfortable taking the monitor away yet. This baby will be in with us for 5/6 months or so but when she goes into her own room we were just going to get a second monitor and just have 2 on the go!

You can get monitors with more than one baby unit that feed onto the same parental unit, although I can't tell you a brand as we've not looked.

We're just going to put our baby unit on the landing when we need to hear both, although my son rarely wakes now. We've got the bt150 and it's uber-sensitive, so as long as you're not moving into a mansion it would probably fo the job for you xx

I thought about putting it on the landing in between all the rooms, its only for the few hours we're downstairs at night, when I go up to bed I'd probably be able to hear them all (I hope!)
