Considerations When Choosing a Movement Sensor Monitor

Where will you use the monitor? - Some movement sensor monitors with sensor mats only work under crib mattresses and not under the matresses of pack n plays or travel cots. If you want to use it in both, it may be worth considering a sensor montior that attaches to the baby's diaper.

Portability - All types of baby movement sensor monitors are portable. However, the ones which attach to a baby's diaper tend to be more easy to take between different settings as you don't have to move around a parent unit. These are great to send to daycare, to friend's house and on trips / vacations.

Do you want a sound monitor as well as a movment monitor?- Some movement sensor monitors have sound as well to give extra peace of mind. This is obviously a huge plus as you will want to know if your baby is crying or not but some people purchase these separately.

Extra features - Some of the monitors come with extra features such as additional parent units, nightlights and thermometers which can be useful.
