    Default Sleep monitor - when to stop using?

    Miss almost 3.5 still has a video monitor and her breathing pads with sound monitor. I have anxiety so this is what allows me to sleep. The camera has a talkback function so we don't have to constantly go in when she's asking for things at bed time. She moved into a bed at 2.5.

    Just a question for those with toddlers using monitors, what do you do about the cords for the monitor and the camera once your child is mobile? The cables are pretty fine on mine and whilst being short they are still long enough to be a hazard. How do you work around that to make them safe?

    My DS is 3 we still use our its sound/video. Similar reason to previous post his room is down the other end of the house and we can talk to him through it when he asks for random things in the mornings.
    In relation to the cord we have the plug behind his bedhead and we have made the long cord short by cable tying it and using the 3m hooks on the wall to keep it out of reach. He only touched it once and never has again - explained it was dangerous and never bothered to touch it again

    My daughter is 4 next month and we still use ours (audio only). Her bedroom is at the other end of the house and a few times we've heard her with strider (the difficultly breathing with croup) through it which we wouldn't have heard had we not had it. No harm in keeping it, though we have another little one arriving in April and I want to get a video one so if they interfere with each other, I'll get rid of hers.

    My dd is 18 months and we have an oricom video monitor which I still use and will for a long time. The monitor sits on the end of her cot secured just by double sided Velcro and then the cord is taped to the outside of her cot all the way down so she can't get to the cord. She's a very adventurous toddler and she had only pulled the video monitor down a couple of times but the cord is secured anyway. DD will go into a proper bed in 6-12 months and I'll then mount the video on the wall again with the cord secured to the wall.

    I have an oricom video monitor which I have mounted on the wall close to the ceiling. The cords run across the top of s pelmet. My daughter is 2.5 yrs and her bedroom is at the opposite end of the house.

    My bub is only 8 months, and has stopped breathing 4 times in his sleep, my mil asked why I was still using the breathing monitors, cause aren't they for babies...... umm he is a baby and I will be using it for a long while yet.

    My DD is 19 months and I still use her Snuza Hero (clip on monitor). I'm also pretty anxious so it allows me to get sleep. I'll probably have to stop soon as she fiddles with it occasionally now. We cosleep so proximity isn't an issue. I'm just a worrier.

    Maybe around 12 months with my first. Can't remember with number 2. My third I never used it at all
