This article presents the ten best video baby monitors available online.
Audio monitors to hear what your baby is up to are good, but today’s video baby monitors are fantastic! They allow you to not only listen for your baby’s cries but see what they are up to at all times. Have a little escape artist? A video monitor allows you to easily see when (and how) your little one is getting out of his crib. Most parents, when given the choice, would opt for this technology any day.
Video monitors work just like audio monitors; you carry a handheld device that allows you to peak in on baby whenever you want. Some models can even track breathing. If you are in the market for a baby monitor for yourself or as a gift for the new parents, you’re in luck.
