We opted not to get a video monitor when I was pregnant with Lucy, and sometimes I wish we had gone ahead and gotten one. Sometimes, I REALLY get curious as to what she’s doing when she’s in her room *not* sleeping. It would be nice to know if she’s laying down and fussing or if she’s sitting up, that kind of thing. Obviously, I can’t go in and check, but I always want to know what’s going on in her room, so a video monitor would probably be the best baby monitor to cater to my curiosity.
So, for baby #2 (whenever that may be!), I think we might splurge and get a video monitor (since we already have all the “big” equipment anyway). It’ll make bebe watching more fun!
