I know I've said it before, but I seriously don't know how I survived or slept without my Angel Care monitor when Franky was born. I remember seeing ads for it when I was pregnant but we just never got it cuz I doubted it would work properly. It seemed too good to be true. Well, it's not. Even when Franky slept, I was up every hour making sure he was still breathing. The thought of losing him to SIDS scared the loving hell outta me. So, needless to say, I slept very little until we started co-sleeping.
This time around I knew I at least wanted to try the angel care monitor out. I haven't regretted getting it for one second. It's the only reason I get any sleep at all. I put baby girl in the bassinet, flip the switch on and am comforted by the quiet little "tics" on the hand-held unit that detects movement. I WISH I'd gotten it with Franky. We've only had one false alarm but that's cuz she wasn't fully on the sensor pad. Still scared me shitless, so now I make sure to set her right in the middle.
For real, I recommend every mommy have an AC monitor. Marija is an excellent sleeper but now I sleep too, not worrying and waking every hour to check on her.
