Should I Get a Baby Monitor?
Keeping a close eye on your little one can go a long way toward helping you prevent accidents, but it's usually not possible to be with your child every second of the day. Baby monitors
can help you to keep tabs on your child during those moments when you need to step away. Monitors come in three main types: audio, video and movement.
Audio monitors allow you to hear what your child is doing, while video camera monitors make it possible to both hear and see your child. A movement monitor will warn you if your child gets out of bed or leaves a particular area. Even if you have a high quality baby monitor, you should still never leave your child unattended in an open area or in the bathtub. Child monitors are intended for use at times when your child is in a safe place, such as inside of his or her crib or play yard. Many of the options are wireless and digital.
How to Baby Proof

involves limiting access to potential hazards in order to protect your child. You can install cabinet and drawer locks in the kitchen and bathroom to keep children away from poisonous cleaning products, sharp objects and other dangerous items. Outlet covers can be used throughout the home to prevent electrical burns and shocks. Appliance guards stop children from opening the oven, the refrigerator and other household appliances that could potentially harm them. Other child-proofing solutions include cushions for sharp corners on furniture, lever locks for doors and toilet locks for the bathroom. back to top »
