When did you stop using the baby monitor?

We have a video monitor that I still use for my 2 year old. It is extra helpful right now, because I switched her crib to a daybed, so now I'm watching to see when she gets out of bed. I don't foresee myself stopping using it any time soon, because it is so nice to see what she is doing in her room without disturbing her.

  • My Son is 3 1/2 and I just have the regular Fisher Price monitor and still use it for night time & nap time. I think I will be using it for a long time still. I think I may invest in a video monitor soon since this one is on the fritz. Which Video Monitor do you recommend??? Anyone??? Thanks!

  • I guess I've never stopped. my son will be 3 in NOv and well, he stopped sleeping through the night once he turned 2 so that's a big reason, and he is in a big boy bed now so I need to hear him if he wakes up - I think I will be fine to let go of it if he even decides to sleep through the night.. please cross your fingers for me.. mommy is TIRED.

  • We stopped using it once we moved to a place where her room was right next to ours, not across the house.
    We went back to it here for a while because once again, her room is across the house. We only used it for a month or so though. She's 5 1/2 now, had just turned 5 when we stopped using it the second time and was about 2 or so when we stopped the first.

  • We have the Summer brand and I have been using since she was 6 months. It's great and has had a LOT of use.
