Night Knight Baby Monitor

Kid Friendly or Are You Kidding: Night Knight

Many new parents are skittish when they bring home baby. A cough can cause a mother to leap out of bed like a bolt of lightning. Instead of checking in on the tot every five minutes to see if they are still breathing, parents can now rely on new battery powered technology from Up Spring Baby.

The $70 Night Knight detects an infant's slightest move. If there is no motion for over 23 seconds, an alarm will sound to wake the infant or notify the parent or caregiver.

Price not being an issue, would you even consider purchasing such a device?

This is an ingenius idea! This is the perfect peace of mind for parents!It amazes me how willing people are to leave negative comments, particularly when they so obviously don't know what they are talking about. If you don't understand a product, don't berate it, research it! For anyone who has lost a child to SIDS, or know someone who has, this product is a God-send! It can go anywhere with you and it attaches easily to their onesie from the inside with a small ring. It doesn't alarm EVERY 23 seconds, it only alarms if it HASN'T sensed any movement for over 22 seconds! And for those who are concerned about it waking your sleeping baby. . . For GOD's SAKE people, if your child stops breathing, you want it to be woken up!!!!!! And it better wake you up too, if you don't have the chance to start CPR, you will lose!! I would rather have a living breathing baby who might get woken up occasionally due to a false alarm, then to realize that while I was asleep I didn't hear, (through a traditional monitor) my baby stop breathing.'Extraordinary circumstances' are not when SIDS takes children, it's the children that are seemingly healthy."SIDS is the leading cause of death of children 1 month to 1 year of age. It is rare in children under one month of age, but some reports include children as young as 1 week and some older than 2 years. Many more children die of SIDS in a year than all who die of cancer, heart disease, pneumonia, child abuse, AIDS, cystic fibrosis and muscular dystrophy combined." http://www.sidsfamilies.com/index.php?sec=sidsdefinition

sounds good, but alarming you every 23 seconds is ridiculous.

Extraordinary circumstances might call for this, but I wouldn't go for it normally.

sounds like some kind of torture. imagine the baby finally getting to sleep and 23 seconds later an alarm goes off.

I have a friend whose twins had to be on heart monitors, and they would go off in the middle of the night sometimes because something was wrong. It was very difficult for her to take the babies off the monitors because she was afraid something was going to happen and she wouldn't know. I think this would have really helped her. I also know of someone who woke up because she felt something was wrong and her baby (who was sleeping in a bassinet next to her) wasn't breathing and her husband had to do CPR. If I was her I would want this for peace of mind. But, absent extreme circumstances I personally would not want something with batteries that is transmitting information wirelessly sitting on my baby's tummy all night.

I have a baby monitor (AngelCare by Bebe Sounds) that monitors for movement with a 2'x2' pad under the matress. It works great. We had some alarms when she was home from the hospital - first week. They don't wake her even though it's loud. Mostly it's loud because we're hearing it through the baby monitor. When she got older, we had some false alarms because she's scooch into the corner of her crib and it wouldn't pick her up, but that was rare. I love having the peace of mind. In fact, I plan to use it under her toddler bed when I move her up (relatively young - because her baby brother will need the crib) so I can get an alarm if she leaves the bed at night.

Trust me, once you get a fussy baby to finally fall asleep the last thing you need is an alarm to wake them in 30 minutes! I have four boys and none of them were that quiet of a sleeper that a baby monitor didn't work fine. You can hear them breathing and moving around.

No. I can just imagine the false alarms. Are you supposed to tape it to them?

Mini's right - it's more likely to upset the baby than help you. The poor child could end up with real sleep issues. And what does it use to monitor the baby? I'm not sure I would want it sitting on my child 'reading' all night - that can't be healthy.

this is absolutely ridiculous. if it's loud enough to warn a parent of an issue, it will comletely freak out an infant (not that they aren't freaked out by everything, love the startle reflex). if it's not that loud, it's useless.i can understand the instinct that drives people to hover, even through gadgets, but i don't think this is a good solution.
