    Great baby monitor I used it when my son when into his room for the first time, gave me such peace of mind with the sensor pad, only problem which I wouldn’t say is the product itself but if baby wriggles off of it it can trigger a false alarm, but I’d rather false alarms than it not go off at all. It what’s a good range on it too.

    I love loved this product and couldn’t have lived without it. I still use it 15 months on! When the movement pad is on I can hear every breath the baby takes. But when the pad is off it sometimes doesn’t always let you hear everything.
    Can use it to talk to your baby back

    I used this with both of my children I loved the reassurance that they where ok I wouldn't have been able to relax without it as I am a worrier like most mums I suppose. I had few false alarms where it went of but baby was fine but other than that I loved this monitor.

    The Closer to Nature baby monitor and mat

    I have had this product for 6years now. Brought for my first child. It still works without fail. The connection is great I can be in my back garden and it'll work easily. The parent unit charges quickly for when you have forgotten to dock it. The baby unit tells you bedroom temperature which is also handy. As well as glowing light which you can dim or brighten for babies needs. The sound is clear, with the ability to talk through to baby. I never personally found this helped settle my boy but helpful anyway for sending instructions to tidy up now that it's in the nursery and he can head from his room next door. I used to mat system for my son for the first few months in his own room. As a nervous first time parent this was a very reassuring extra.

    Cons - in sleep deprived state you do often forget to turn the mat off when you pick up your screaming cherub. Leading to an irritating unnecessary alarming at 3am taking your baby from awake for a feed to wide awake for the day! I know this is more user error than manufactured error. But still something to consider, eventually when my son was 10 months I stopped using it as it caused more problems than reassurance. At least this feature is completely detachable so not something that even needs using.

    Overall, a great monitor. Provides you with enough reassurance without the actual visual on baby. Very sound sensitive picks up even the smallest of noise allowing you to run in before baby fully wakes. Which is fab!

    I think this is a great piece of kit and have found it very useful for the first 8 months of my sons life :) he’s been in his cot since 4 months and I think the sensitivity function comes in handy to take away that “worried mummy” sprint into their room when they make the tiniest noise in the night. We haven’t ever used the pad for heart rate since my boy rolls around so much in his sleep and am sure we would end up with the alarm going off every half an hour otherwise!

    The monitor works by having a movement sensor mat that goes under babys matteress. There are however a lot of wires so it takes a bit of faffing about to get them in a safe place. As you need a plug socket for this you also need to make sure babies bed is near one. The alarm will sound if no movement for 20 seconds but i don't think its totally accurate. If baby is in bed alone it works great but if you sleep in the same room and baby is in a bedside cot or you have wobbly floor boards the sensor picks up other movements and it wont go off. On more than one occasion i have picked baby up and the alarm has not sounded at all (which it should as after 20 seconds of no movement) the monitor itself has a beep which is supposed to be babies heartbeat and transmits sounds. You can carry it around the house with you. I have to say i wouldn't recommend this. I ended up buying a video baby monitor and a sensor pad that used batteries and worked much better. All the wires bothered me and the fact that walking round or being in the same room as baby stopped sensor going off meant i didn't trust it!

    I love this item it has made me relax and have piece of mind. The wire to the sensor pad is long, has a small night light on it with three settings but this isn't very bright. Alarm will alert when there has been no movement for 20seconds, this can cause distress if baby has rolled off the pad causing the alarm to alert. Sensor will pick up baby noise. The small monitor can be placed on the charging Dock and used to walk around the house or garden once charged. It shows a light green light when baby is moving and if alert goes off it turns red and has a message saying check baby. Really glad I bought this.

    We wanted something simple when it came to a baby monitor. It is simple and easy to use. Simple design that can blend into any room. Hard wearing as it’s been dropped a few times and we travel with it a lot. It is a reliable monitor most of the time however it loses signal a lot! Which is very annoying as the loss of signal warning can often wake us up in the night. So even though so many good points I would not choose to buy this again. I would prefer to get one with a camera.

    Great value for a sensor mat and monitor all in one. Works perfectly well and does the job but the wire is slightly too short even though our cot is right next to the socket so keep that in mind when positioning this.

    I felt this product gave me the comfort I needed as I was so paranoid while my baby slept, so I was able to sleep knowing it will alarm me if all was not ok. It was easy to put together, the monitor isn’t too big, and I can talk to my baby through it which I like, would like the alarm to be a little louder and less wires as well but overall I would 100% recommend it.

    I was very unsure about which baby monitor to go for so I asked my facebook community who told me to go for a sound and movement monitor. I decided on Tommee Tippee because I have used a number of their products and have not had any issues. I am so glad that I did go for this one!!! The only thing I find is that there is feedback from the parent and baby unit being too close when I go back upstairs when I get to the top the feedback is quite bad even though I am outside of my baby's room. I find the monitor is absolutely fantastic for knowing if it is the baby stirring and making a noise or whether it is background noise for instance the blue lights only light up when my baby cals out as opposed to when her mobile is being played.
    I find this really helpful as the blue lights also help to wake me up even though I hear her through the monitor when you are just waking up you don't always register what the noise is but seeing the blue lights makes me know it is baby and not just music through the monitor. I highly recommend this baby monitor to any mum or dad.

    I purchased this product to use with my 3rd baby. It is hands down the best monitor we have used. It is so simple to set up, and the distance in which you can hear from baby to the handheld monitor is fantastic. We tried it with our elder daughters and you could hear them whispering from a distance of about 5metres.

    I was given this monitor before the birth of my son. It has allowed my husband and I to sleep without worry, something we didn’t think we would get after starting life in the Neonatal unit. Setting up the unit is straightforward, just make sure the wires aren’t able to swing and plug into the baby unit. When the sensor mat is switched on a green light flashes every time your baby moves. This is reflected on both the parent and baby unit. If it does not detect movement for 20 seconds an alarm will sound, and it definitely wakes you! Just remember to switch it off when removing baby from cot! It allows us the peace of mind that if our little one should stop breathing we would be able to help, and the alarm often shocks the little one to start breathing again. The sound on the parent unit is crystal clear, I can even hear birds chirping outside on it. There are differing levels of sound and sensitivity so you can find what is right for you. An absolute necessity for any new parent.

    I have used this with both my kids, we used the sensor mat in their cribs which were amazing and very reassuring! And the monitor it’s self still gets used even with an older baby! Can be turn up very loud which is good and also the flashing lights are very reassuring for the mat (when your not in the room)!
    Love it would recommend to anyone!

    Great 2 in 1 monitor that can be used with the sensor pad or as a normal audio baby monitor.
    Sensor pad gives peace of mind that your little one is breathing and sleeping peacefully. But if your baby is a wriggler like mine then you quickly get used to the sound of the alarm as it sounds every time they shuffle around their crib.
    As baby gets older and need for the sensor pad is no longer needed, you can turn the pad off and use the monitor as a standard audio monitor.
    It picks up any change in movement or noise within the room so your aware of the first sign of your baby stirring. Handy as they get older and you can quickly run up to put their dummy back in before they completely wake up.
    The parent unit offers two way talk, which my other half and I use more as a walkie talkie to request the other one to bring more nappies down etc. I imagine as baby gets older this function will come in handy to reassure your child that “mummy’s coming”.
    With my eldest our baby monitor played music and lullabies which this unit doesn’t offer but I have found that these aren’t actually needed. My daughter settles quicker and sleeps much more soundly than my son ever did, not sure if this has any link to lullabies being played.
    It’s great value for money, I would definitely recommend this product.

    i bought this mat before my little one was born as it was a monitor with a sensor mat that would alarm if the baby stopped breathing. the mat sensitivity can be adjusted and put under the mattress in a cot. i have used this for months and it has worked when it was needed. the monitor has a talk button and tells the temperature in the room. this monitor meant i was able to go downstairs and leave my baby asleep in bed. the battery in the remote can run down quite quick but i always put mine on the charger stand every night.

    We have had two of these because they are so good! After about 5 years our first one stopped working properly but was still usable.....you just couldn't see anything on the screen. The second one is still going strong even though the battery doesn't seem to last hours it does last at least 2-3 without needing to put it back on the dock. Not a problem since it still works on the dock! Better price than angelcare and better quality.
