I just bought the Motorola video monitor with my Amazon mom discount, and DH is questioning if we really need it. His argument is that we will hear her cry and we will not just sit and watch her on the monitor, we will get up and go take care of her.

I explained to him that we'll want to check on her without waking her up, that we'll want to make sure once she's moving around that she hasn't rolled on her tummy, or gotten her arm caught in a slat.

What are the other things you use your video monitor for? How often do you use it?
