Hubs and I started our registries on Saturday, and we registered for a video monitor because one of my very close friends strongly recommended it. However, a few of Hubs's friends told him "Don't get a video monitor - you'll obsess over it and not get any sleep anyway!" I told him that we could turn the video off at night, but I know me and I worry that I will start to obsess over watching the baby. Do you think a video monitor is really worth the extra money? Were you able to turn it off and not obsess?

Also, my mom has said several times that she thinks video monitors are ridiculous. "We did it without being able to constantly see you...."
