Baby monitors

I'm sure this has been discussed on here numerous times....but I am curious. My DH and I have conflicting opinions on when we should stop using the baby monitor on our 13 month old. I say that we should have ditched it months ago. He says that we need to keep it until she is in a toddler bed and can speak for herself. I think he is being paranoid...if she really needed something seriously enough I'm sure we would be able to hear her without the monitor. We have a three bedroom house in Florida and all sleep on the same floor. So, moms, when did you ditch the baby monitor for your little one? Or perhaps you never had one all?

I never used one. Never saw the point. If the baby screamed, I heard them.

That's how I feel. Thanks for your feedback!

My son is 11 months and I don't foresee getting rid of it any time soon.

I use it for a few years. I keep the volume low but I like being able to see what's going on without going in and possibly waking baby up.

You could always keep it on in her room and turn off your receiver. If you "think" you hear something and want to turn it on, you can. Once you haven't had the need to turn it on for a few weeks, turn off the part in her room, too.

My son is 2 and I still use it. But our house is long and narrow with my room on one end, 3 rooms in between and then my sons room. I actually can't even hear him from the living room.

That's actually a good way to handle this...

Oh wow! I can see why you have a need for it then..

I used them till around 2-3, but the rooms are pretty far from mine. My youngest was also a horrible sleeper and I worried about her waking her sister

My boys share a room. They are 3 1/2 and 2 (at the end of this month). We still use it. If my little one wakes up, I need to high tail my butt in there before he wakes my older one up. That's the only reason we use it.
