    O M G i have never moved sooooooo friggin fast

    dolly was sick yesterday LOTS but ok this morning with just a slight flemmy cough

    she always goes back to bed for an hours nap around 10am :thumbup:

    well just waking for her to wake up, listening to the monitor from downstairs and SH*T ........... the sensor movement alarm started :huh:

    i have never moved so fast, all 6 month pregnant of me, darted over the stair gate up the stairs and into bedroom to find dolly dumplin right at the top of her cot absolutely fine :dohh:

    i'm now waiting for my heart to return to regular beat :dohh:

    I have one of those sensor mats too and had to turn the alram of due to my daughter moving around so much and giving me a scare on a number of occassions!! so so scary isnt it!! im a very light sleeper since she was born, and sleep is worse now, so all i do is watch the monitor for the sensor light to indicate that shes breathing and i feel more relaxed..
    Glad to hear shes ok :) xx

    It happened to us other week dead of night alarm goes off me and oh fall over each other running to get to his room he is still oh grabs him and poor kids scream place down

    Puzzled we didn't know how it went off so settled him in travel cot next to bed so i can keep eye on him

    When to turn parent monitor off as it was on hold and saw that temp was 19 oh had set the temperature alarm to go off at 19 so he could get up and stick heating on if needed as we don't have timer or thermostat

    But wow my heart was racing then next day when i am walking slowly because huge bump SPd ect oh says you moved quicker than that last night get a wiggle on! Could have slapped him lol

    I'm sorry, I don't know anything about these alarms. Do they go off when there is no movement? Or the opposite? What are they there for?

    The sensor pads go under the cot matress. They're so sensitive they pick up the baby breathing. If there's no movement/breath in (I think) 7 seconds the alarm goes off.

    But I had the same problems with mine, my son would go into an L shape at the top of his cot so his alarm would go off all the time lol. Glad it was just a false alarm.

    Sorry, I'm not even supposed to in here, I'm still in 1st tri lol xxx

    likek clairemuir stated it is a normal sound monitor which you can hear baby in bed say if you go downstairs but has the added part of a mat that will alarm after i think 20 seconds if there is no movement. it is very sensitive and monitors babies breathing chest rises etc

    although the alarm can be absolutely terrifying when it goes off i wouldnt be without it. i can't sleep without the beeps at the side of me :wacko:

    i will have 2 beeping monitors once baby bean is here :wacko:

    there are different makes and styles and most baby stores and supermarkets sell them. think the cheapest one is around £50.
