I have a BT150 monitor which is absolutely fantastic. It doesn't have sensors or video but it's so sensitive, I car hearing my LO breathing. Has lots of nice extras, temp, two-way speakers, music, etc.
I also use an angelcare movement monitor and this is brilliant for peace of mind but I don't find it that good for sound, hence why I still use the BT150. When I was pregnant, I thought a movement monitor wasn't necessary (plus I worried about false alarms) but when I moved our baby into the cot at 8 weeks, I couldn't settle until I got this and I've never had a false alarm in 5 months of using it.

Big recommendation from me for the Angelcare sensor pad. Wouldn't be without mine. When I've poked my head into her bedroom I can't hear her breathing so without the monitor I would be constantly waking her by prodding and poking to check she's still alive!!
It's so reassuring to me, definitely recommend a pad if you're a worrier like me.

Thanks for your responses, although the BT150 has been recommended before I am a worryer and would prefer something like the Angelcare sensor pad. Thanks again.

hi everyone, new here but desperate for advice! My son is 1 month old on Tuesday and has been bottle feeding for the past 2 weeks. He has had problems since. He is extremely irritable, I’m sure my Son doesn’t have anytime while awake not crying, he cries ALL the time and I try EVERYTHING with no success. I have been to the hospital and doctors and they are so very unhelpful, they just tell me he has colic and basically I have to deal with it. I am almost certain, and the hospital also said, he has reflux (silent) as he rarely spits up but it is getting far worse and he is becoming more and more irritable, coughing after feeds and in between and starting to refuse feeds, scream, want them, take them and scream again. He has had Carobel from the hospital as they didn’t want to give Gaviscon due to chance of constipation, but it did absolutely nothing for him. He is now simply on infacol but has trouble pooing, which causes him distress, but is very runny. I guess i am I am desperately looking for advice on what to do, as it is increasingly hard with a baby that cries all day and won’t sleep or settle due to milk coming back up. I feel like I’m missing something and not giving him what he needs? HE IS SUCH A HUNGRY BABY! I feed him, change his nappy, cuddle him, sing to him, wind him, put him in swinger, walk round house, car - I am lost! Health visitor has done a referral to dietician however who knows how long this will take! Dad is lactose intolerant. Also, how much does your baby eat, or did eat at 1 month? Mine wants food every 1.5/2 hours! Please help!
