Review: Tommee Tippee Digital Monitor & Sensor Pad

We have lived without a monitor so far, but some times I wished we had one. So when Tommee Tippee kindly offered us their all new monitor with sensor pad we were excited to give it a go and see what it was like!

To begin with we just used the monitor and living in a flat with so much interference roaming around we find anything wireless has trouble speaking to things, infact we not long ago decided to put a wire through the flat into our computers because the it was causing problems for our wireless router. This was one thing that put us off getting a monitor. But once we had charged it up and turned it on for the first night we were delighted to hear perfectly fine and have little to no problems.

The Sensor pad was a problem for us in our home as we just couldn't get it wired up (our cot is on the opposite side of the room from where the changing table is which is also where the only two power points are). Without running a wire down the middle of the bedroom we couldn't really get it tested here. Enter my parents who we were off to see for a weekend! We set up the pad and tested it before putting Baby Al into bed and heard the alarm which it sets off when there is no movement. Baby Al went to bed after his usual routine and could hear it click, telling us he is moving and fine. We did very quickly find the clicking sound rather annoying, but luckily you can turn it off. The alarm will alert you if there has been no movement  for twenty seconds.

We do have a few things we didn't like about this product though. I was a tad disappointed in the night light, it's on the back of the baby unit and I would barely call it a light. I understand that it is meant to be a soft light but surely you should at least see some sort of light coming from it. We also think the parent unit is a tad cheap looking for the price you pay.

- Great sound quality.
- Easy to use.
- Parent Unit also tells you temperature of baby's room.

- Very dim night light.
- Parent unit feels a bit cheap.

And our judges are in with their scores!

Baby Al's Rating: 7/10
Petit Mom's Rating: 7/10

Baby Al prefers his Ikea light and Petit Mom agrees, though is impressed with the quality of sound.

The products is now avaliable to buy at £99.99 or for just the monitor for £64.99.
