Baby monitors and other baby stuff

I remember a few nights of him crying where we just looked at each other not knowing what to do! It was horrible.

I found bouncing up and down on an exercise ball with him helped quite a lot. Have you tried a baby carrier for when you need to get stuff done?
 
Is she suffering from Reflux, or perhaps Colic? My first had Colic, second had Reflux - we used the specialist formulas for both (Aptamil) and that helped. We changed their bottles to MAM as well, which let air escape from the base, reducing the risk of wind.

A little trick for the breathless screaming - blow gently on her face, it’ll stop that straight away ? (seriously!)
The blowing definitely snaps her out of it for a few seconds, and then I have to do it again.

Since we’ve had the infacol on the go and let it get working she’s been fine so fingers crossed.

Have a baby carrier, which we have used when out and about. She’s just still a little slumped in it due to her size and not holding herself up yet but we will be using it if it makes things easier. We’ve also set up her cot for daytime naps to try get her used to being on her own, but of instinct tells her she needs to be near us then I doubt it will work but we can try!!

It’s worth persevering with the cot. My son was sleeping in his cot overnight and during naps from about 4 weeks old ?

Dilemma, our second is due in September so we need a new monitor. We have a BT 6000 and it’s ace but our first will still need to use this for a while, but we can’t buy another (without paying over the odds) as they’ve been discontinued. What monitors are people using?

We’ve got a BT 6000 too, great bit of kit except battery life on the main unit. You can still get them online and even get 2nd hand ones on eBay and you can hook up an additional camera to the main unit and toggle between the two..

When I looked into adding the second camera, lots of reviews online said you couldn’t. Have you got two cameras on yours?

I think I need to give this a good read. Any ones to specifically avoid? Me being me will want the all singing one that can connect to nasa etc...

I’m under the impression you can add a second and have seen some reviews online to say that is the case. Although you can only toggle between them individually and not watch both at once.

I’m tempted to get a second hand unit on eBay and try it.

Having had the BT 6000 since our little girl was born, can genuinely say it’s been great. Wide screen unit, auto switches to night mode when it’s pitch black. Tilt and zoom function which is helpful, as well as a talk function so you can speak to the other half if they’re upstairs for example (like a walkie talkie basically)

Based on advice from John Lewis and glad we went with it. We found it’s a bit of a minefield choosing a monitor if you don’t know what you’re talking about as there’s so many.

But the BT ones seem to tick most boxes!

my daughter is now 7 years old and we are still using our 7 year old Motorola MPb36 or something like that, for our third child who is 8 months old.

its probably very dated now being 7 years old, but is still working faultlessly

amazing range, great battery life, pan and tilt etc and all the other functions you would expect

I have this monitor for my twins and can confirm you can add additional cameras.

I actually ended up selling the second camera though as it was much more convenient for me to ceiling mount the one camera and PTZ between the two cots. Otherwise you have to navigate through the slightly faffy menus on the device and manually connect to the other camera.

Brilliant cheers mate, I’ll get one of those sourced once my bank account has recovered.

Rather than buying a second camera, I was tempted by the new BT Smart Monitor system.

BT 6000 is still available in Smyths Toys for £130.00?
