I have to say, I'm loving the video monitor. I have a Summer Infant Video Monitor - the kind with the color screen and night vision. The clarity is unbelievable, and it is so reassuring to be able to check in and watch my little guy while he is sleeping. Sometimes he is restless. Sometimes he slides down the incline sleeper. Sometimes his pacifier falls out. Sometimes he is just a noisy sleeper - he'll kick his legs, or cry out. The video monitor allows me to see EXACTLY what is going on, and judge whether or not I actually need to make a trip into his bedroom. It also allows me to eavesdrop on DH when he is rocking the baby to sleep.
My nephew also enjoyed watching him sleep this past weekend. I confess, sometimes I just turn the video on and watch him . . . he is so stinking cute! I love that I can hear him sucking on his paci through the monitor. I can't figure out how parents managed without all this new technology. I'd never let him out of my sight or sleep so long uninterrupted without some good visual confirmation.
