video monitor mounting

Please tell me what you have done to get a good view of the inside of the crib with the video monitor. Ours doesn't have a hook or anything so it's sitting on top of the dresser next to the crib and the view isn't so great. Any suggestions?

  • Are you sure you can't mount it on the wall? Ours just a little spot for a nail to slide in. We have it at the head of the crib but up about two feet. We had to move it, because as my daughter got taller she would reach over and turn the camera. They also have these things that glue to the wall to hold the cord tight against the wall so the baby can't get it. If it is brand new, I would take it back to find another that mounts.

  • Ours was on the wall. I don't think there really IS a better way to do it.

  • Agree with the two above ^

    Our camera had a indentation in the bottom to slide over a nail/screw; then I had my SO staple gun the cord to the wall across the top and then down to the plug so she couldn't get ahold of it and pull it into the crib.
