How old was your child/ children when you stopped using a monitor?

Just wondering if I am over protective or under protective :)

  • we bought the camera video kind when my son began having recurring croup which turned into asthma at a very young age. kids are presently 3 3/4 and 5 1/2 and sharing a bedroom.... we have it hooked up in there and glance at it a few nights a month. if someone is sick, snoring, seeing if someone is scared during a thunderstorm, etc etc

  • Meaning a baby monitor? I used one for my first child for a short time, maybe a month or two because he ended up with me all the time. And my second, well we lived in a tiny apartment so if she cried, we all heard it : ) Never had the video kind. I;ve seen moms using them for when their babies are napping and the moms go outside or something and bring the monitor along.

  • We have a video monitor and still use it -- my son is 21 months. I have no idea when I will stop using it. I don't see it being any time soon though.

  • Had one with our first. It made too many weird noises, so I stopped using it after a few days.

  • When they MOVED OUT! LOL sorry - I used it till they were prolly 8 or so - and primarily because they wouldn't go to sleep when I closed the door - I kept tabs on em with it.

  • ha ha a what? Never used one. I kind of wanted one with my first but other things were more important but never really felt the need for one. Guess if I had a huge house maybe!
