Does anyone have this and is it any good?
My questions are;
Is it reliable?
Does the motion sensor go off regularly in an annoying fashion?
Is the sound monitor two way?
Is it quiet for the baby?
And please tell me anything else you think I should know!
Thanks in advance

We have one and have found it pretty good it only has one way sound, and has only ever gone off when dd has gone right to the bottom of her cot and is lying sideways (far away from the morion pad, she is a wriggler) But it's definitely not annoying. It makes no noise at her end unless you use the ticker function which then makes a ticking noise with every movement/breath which was useful when she moved into her own room as it gave me peace of mind hearing that she was still breathing and she had a comfort noise so she would resettle. We have had no issues with ours and would recommend it.

I've got one too, and would also recommend it. I've never had it go off, and you can actually adjust the sensitivity which is good. You can also change it to sound only, which I have used a few times when wheeling DD into the bedroom asleep in her pram after a walk.

I love mine , DS is 16.5 mths old and I still use it, the only time we had trouble with false alarms was when he got to the stage where he'd move around his cot when we only had one sensor on, it was very easily solved with adding the other sensor pad. We do get every now and then the initial beep but DS has issues with nasal congestion and adenoids and has also stopped breathing whilst on us, TBH I think the initial beep stirs him enough to kick back in his breathing. From memory I don't think your supposed to change the sensitivity of the motion pads unless there are medical issues, our was going off quite a bit early on the DH read the instruction manuals then pointed it out to me, yep I had changed it to super sensitive (paranoid first time mum) lol
