  • I stopped around 9 months, after DS started sleeping through the night. I am a light sleeper and my son is LOUD, so a monitor is not needed on the rare occasions that he wakes in the middle of the night. However, we use the monitor if we sit on our porch in the early evening and when the sitter is there we let her use it.

  • I don't use them. I can't sleep with hearing their every move.

  • When he was put in a toddler bed. I never heard every little sound, and I couldn't hear him crying in the middle of the night w/o it because his room was so far away and my husband always has a box fan on. When he was put in a toddler bed I quit using it at night because he could just come into our room, but I still used it at nap time because I was on a different level than he was and I wanted to know if he was playing when he shouldn't have been.
