I've been tossing up about monitors, but kind of had decided against it due to the sidsandkids website: "There is no scientific evidence that electronic baby monitors are of any assistance in preventing SIDS and have played no part in the dramatic reduction in SIDS deaths in Australia. The reduction in the number of babies dying of SIDS has come about because parents have been made aware of ways to sleep baby safely such as placing baby on the back to sleep from birth, sleeping baby with face uncovered, not smoking during pregnancy or after the birth, and by providing a safe sleeping environment." http://www.sidsandkids.org/faq/
But so many people get them... So what do I do?? Is it necessary?
