    I just had a tomy monitor with my son but am really stressy this time around and have been looking at the monitors with sensor mats. Im just concerned about paying all that money if its true they give out false alarms. Im really stuck with what to do . . . . . . .

    So please, can you tell me which monitor you have or will be getting?

    Thank you xx

    Good question, lurking for responses. Have been given one by a friend but it doesn't seem to be working :shrug:

    I have the sony sound sensor nursery monitor. It got really good reviews and in voice mode is supposed to eliminate all that static white noise in the background. I don't have any of the sensor ones, if I can cut the white noise I won't be so jumpy when I can hear her properly. Don't know if this helps at all....:D

    I'm inheriting the BT 150 from a friend - it doesn't have a sensor function. What is that useful for?

    I just have a basic Fisher Price one. For most of the day, the baby will be in the same room as me, and same at night - it's just for a couple of hours in the evening that I might have her upstairs and would need it, and I'd say I'll be checking on her pretty constantly even then.

    I am going to get the Angelsounds Sound and Movement Monitor. Have read some exceptional reviews on it, and apparently the mat does not sound falsely which i was concerned about.

    Same as this! I originally got a Tommee Tippee sensor mat one, the sensor mat worked fine but the actual monitor didn't work! So gave up on that and got a Tomy one and it's fine, so I'll be using that again this time too x

    i bought tomy digital plus, decided against a sensor one as had also heard of the false alarms with them and thought it would cause unnecessary stress rather than reducing it

    I've been looking at angel care one, I know someone who has it and she only started to get false alarms now that baby is over the age of 1 and sometimes moves right up to the top of her cot. She says she would rather have the false alarms than not have the sensor mat and that it doesn't happen often anyway.

    I had a respisense buzz with Imogen, which I loved and never gave a false alarm ever, and I have the new version now as they no longer replace the batteries on the buzz (slightly annoying, but they did a part exchange so it wasn't too expensive).

    I got the one with the breathing sensor as I plan on keeping the baby in my room or even in her room (like 20 feet away) I don't think I will need a monitor to hear her. But my husband was telling me about a video camera type monitor which maybe I will get b/c it has an iphone app so you can see baby whenever wherever. Me, OH, my parents are getting iphones next months so this may be something to consider..
