    Thanks CJ81. I've been doing a bit of research and that sounds like the quickest response one. I'm sure the midwives etc will tell me it wont be necessary but I dont think either my husband or I will be sleeping peacefully without out some sort of alert system.

We got a great deal on bubsngrubs. It was $199 and came with a bonus baby monitor. We already had a monitor but will keep as a back up. We havent put our DD (11 weeks old) in the cot yet but will start doing so soon.

    I like the 10 breaths per second alert. When our little girl passed we were standing right next to her (I was doing up her pants at the time) and the doctor had only gotten as far as the door. So if the whole medical team couldnt resus her only seconds after she starts breathing I wont have a hope of doing it after 20 seconds. I guess at this stage of the game the whole concept of a monitor is for my benefit but if we dont get one no-one will be getting any sleep because I'll stay awake to watch and I'll be keeping the baby awake (yeah right) to make sure he keeps breathing.

    We had people telling us it wasnt necessary but you need to do whatever will allow you and your hubby to get some sleep or be able to leave bub in a room without going into a panic.

    We had people telling us we were over protective too. I found that saying "when you have a baby that dies, THEN you can let me know how you feel about it." They tend to shut up after that.

    Default Baby alarms/monitors

    We also have the snuza halo that was mentioned by a pp.
    my bub is a 'cardiac kid' and has a complex heart condition. After doing tons of research I decided the snuza halo was perfect. Mainly for peace of mind and the portability. It means she has it clipped on her nappy in the car, pram...or when she might be lying in a portacot at someone's house or the bouncer etc. well you get my drift.
    I've had people tell me that I'm over the top too, and its not the same as losing a bub but I say 'you have a kid with a cardiac condition and get back to me'. Don't listen to people. You're the mummy and you need to do whatever you need to have peace of mind and feel secure.
    So sorry for your loss too. Such a difficult journey and you are obviously a very strong person and will be a great mum because you love your bub tons already and just want to protect them.
