    But im the same as you ... worried about removing them.

    My aunt said she removed hers when meghan could talk/shout if she needed anyone, which is what i might do TBH ...

    lol if you look in the buy swap sell wanted you will see that Iwant some cause in my new house I cant really hear Noah if he cries and he is 16 months! Its not like he is old enough to come down stairs or call out to me if he needs me. At the moment he has a cold so has been getting a bit distressed at night, we have to keep mutting the TV to check if we can hear him, and he has a bloody loud cry.

    I was trying to remember when I stopped using them for Jade the other day.......but do you kow what, I think you should use them until you feel comfortable not using them any longer, all they do is give YOU piece of mind, and it is nothing you are going to have to worry about weaning the little'uns off, so I stay stop when you feel comfy, where is the harm? You gain alot from them so they are doing YOU good! :) I intend to use Alfie's (once he is in his own room) for as long as I feel I need to.

    I think Emily was about 3 when i finally unplugged it
    Don't use it upstairs at night, i think it's like part of the furniture lol
    Our house it quite big with lots of doors so only time i can hear without monitors is if i'm in the kitchen!!

    We stopped using it with Seren really young - but she was in our room till about 7 months. I am the same as Dionne, am a really light sleeper, and the noise of them really irritates me.

    Right I may sound pesimistic but I am a light sleeper too, its not the fact I wont hear her crying as I wake with the least bit noise and madam is still in my room, the issue is if she stops breathing :wacko: hence why I rely on the sensor mat.

    Sorry I am a cheery sod aint I!:baby:

    I think its up to you, there is no point removing it if you are going to lie there and worry is there? You don't need that now. I kind of know how you feel, when Seren first went into her room it took me ges to relax but I did eventually. You decide when's right.

    TBH with you KX if the reason your using one still is worry over stopping breathing, the rosk of cot death after 6 months is exreamly rare, as they can move around by themselves, and regulate their own body temperature. So with your DD now 1 Ireally would hva ethought you had anythng to worry about there.
