Alright, it’s no secret that baby monitors are kind of a necessity when you’re a parent. Whether you use them at night or while you’re away from your baby, they are a essential for safe and protected babies (and let’s be honest, they make your life so much easier!).
My confession of today is that I never actually used to be a fan of them, as I always thought they were a waste of money (oh honey, was I so wrong!).
But due to a recent scare I had with my newborn when I was out of the room (he got hold of a toy and had it stuck half way down his throat by the time I got to him), I thought it would be a good idea to invest in one!
So for today, I wanted to put together a list of the few best baby monitors I’ve come across online with the best reviews, and let you know which ones I’m thinking of getting, and see what you guys think! Sound good, mommas? Let’s get started!
Best Baby Monitors
As Recommended By Parents (That Actually Have Kids!) Rather than companies trying to sell you their product !!
1 ♥ Infant Optics – The Best of The Best
Starting with perhaps the most popular and well-known baby monitor, the Infant Optics is highly rated for a reason! Not only praised for easy set-up, but it’s also highly popular because of it’s crystal clear image throughout the day and night, which makes it super easy to keep an eye on your baby no matter what time it is!
Based on the night mode of this monitor, it makes me feel like it would be the safe, secure, and smart option to always keep track of your baby (especially because I’ve blackened out the windows in the baby room to keep our little one asleep, so it can get a little hard to see sometimes!).
So if you struggle with the same issue or darkness or just have a blurry image on your current baby cam, momma, it’s time to pick this one up!
2 ♥ Have Fun With Lefun Wireless Cam
The Lefun baby monitors honestly sounds too good to be true! Reading up on review after review of this wireless baby monitor, I have to say I absolutely adore the WiFi feature that it has to offer!
It makes me feel safe getting my work or chores around the house done away from the baby, and watching my little one live on the my phone instead without having to worry.
Many satisfied buyers claim that this baby monitor provides excellent quality video, and two-way microphone so you can hear if your baby is a wake or being mischievous.
And believe me, the mischief begins as soon as you close that door!
Based on the incredible ratings of this monitor and low cost, I’m definitely considering giving it a shot!
3 ♥ I Fell In Love Too Soon With The Cocoon Cam Plus
The Cocoon Cam Plus… where do I begin with you? This monitor is a lot different than most the baby monitors that you see, and I think that’s what makes it so special!
Recommended to me by a friend, this specific cam actually monitors your baby’s breathing on top of providing you live audio and video to go along with it. That means in case of a medical emergency or the baby starts to choke on something, you’ll know right away and be able to stop it.
How cool is that?
I absolutely love the concept of this specifically, because as I mentioned above, my baby recently had a terrible accident of choking that scared me half to death. So having a monitor that can provide that extra step to help me prevent that from happening again is a huge weight of my chest!

4 ♥ Project Nursery or Project Dream Come True?
Project Nursery is another fantastic WiFi based baby monitor, which means safe monitoring on the go!
Something that stood out to me about this particular monitor is that the camera is able to pan, zoom, and tilt, and also measures temperature!
Which is an awesome feature!
I think this is a fantastic idea to ensure your baby doesn’t get too hot or too cold while you’re not with them. It’s also perfect in case of emergency like a fire, for example, to help you get a heads-up and prevent something from happening. I love the entire concept of this, and I may or may not be two seconds away from Amazon Priming this order… (wink, wink).
5 ♥ Live Smart With Lollipop Smart Cam
Okay, we all know it’s a hit or miss if you’re going to wake the baby up when you go to check on them when they’re asleep, which is why it’s probably not a good idea unless you want to take years off of your life!
Hello, grey hair!
But with this little baby, you can keep an eye on your baby in secret, and even set the camera to detect noise or crying so you can be alerted when you’re little one is fussy or upset.
I love the idea of this especially if you have a big house like my husband and I do, as this ensures that even if your room is on the other side of the house away from the baby, you will still know if he wakes up and needs a changing or feeding (and that’s some A+ parenting right there!).
Overall, if you couldn’t tell, I’m quite a fan of all of these WIFI and wireless baby vido monitors in different ways. And who knows, perhaps I’ll give them all a shot (I say as my husband shakes his head in the corner). But honestly, I think any of these baby cams would be a fantastic option for ensuring you’re keeping a watchful eye on your little bean. And thankfully, these are all quite different from each other so it will hopefully help you find one that suits the needs of you and of your baby perfectly!
