Mommy's Lil Helper: Baby Monitor For Your iPhone

Mommy's Lil Helper: Baby Monitor For Your iPhone

Baby monitors can act as a mama's second set of eyes and ears, but when you're on the go and your lil one needs a nap you can still keep tabs on her while she sleeps with the Baby Monitor application for iPhone ($5). Simply place your iPhone near your sleeping baby, and if it detects noise it will place a phone call to the number of your choice (like the land line at your best friend's house). You can then listen in for activity from your tot — the super smart program will also detect if your babe picks up the phone.

Sold? Download it from iTunes, and check out other great iPhone applications for parents and parents-to-be.

there is another one here, quite a bit cheaper. I have used it for a while now, seems to work well as an extra piece of mind when traveling.http://itunes.apple.com/WebObjects/MZStore.woa/wa/viewSoftware?id=298002496&mt=8

Yeah the description freaked me out just a tiny bit. I like the vacation idea but other than that I don't have a use for it.

Another question - let's say my daughter rolls over with a deep sigh. The phone's detected movement and sound and calls me. I can tell she's still sleeping but now I have to go hang up her phone, waking her when I walk into the room.

OR! How about this idea. You buy a regular baby monitor, and then!! you don't leave your baby alone and go to a friends house. Or anywhere. I agree with Greggie's comment. It will make some irresponsible parents think "oh well i'll just go out and then come back as soon as the baby wakes up..." and leave the child alone.

I guess it might be helpful on vacation, but our monitor doesn't take up much more space than a phone. Plus that would leave me with a couple hours of not being able to text. *lol*

We have a baby monitor that NEVER works so this would be helpful if he's napping and I'm down in my office catching up on work, but if it were anywhere near enough to him, he'd have the phone apart before I could get upstairs to him. No matter what other phone-like toys we give my son, NOTHING compares to the iphone!

I think this sounds ideal for vacations or trips to grandma's house when you don't want to lug your monitor with you.

What if someone calls your cell while the baby's nap? I don't know, why not just use a regular monitor? The description makes it sound like they're encouraging moms to put baby down for a nap and go run errands or something. It's weird.

I really really want an iPhone,but can't justify the "litte" extra's :( but anyways.. I like this idea but where would you be for the phone to call you? Wouldn't you be in the same house as the baby?
