I am a total worry wort when my baby is sleeping. He's 5 months old and recently started rolling over on his tummy to sleep. I use the Angel Care Monitor as well as a video Monitor. Last month we were hit by a hurricane and lost power for 8 days. It was during this time he decides to start sleeping on his stomach. Since I had no monitors I put him in my room to sleep in his pack and play, While he slept great I was up all night long checking on him.
I have also gotten a few false alarms with the Angel Care Monitor. ALWAYS around 4am when I'm in a dead sleep. The first time it happened I ran like mad into his room, only to find him sleeping peacefully, Thank God! I ended up emailing the company to ask them how to avoid so many false alarms. They were really nice and wrote me back within a couple of hours. They wrote me a long letter telling me different things to try. He said if set up correctly the monitor WILL cover the ENTIRE mattress. He said some times you need to try different sensitivities. He gave me a bunch of things to make sure of for it to work properly. Perhaps you could write them, and get the same list I did.
Also, I have heard the same thing about not being able to revive a baby dying of sids, But I don't know why. I have researched it and can't find an answer to that.
Just like another poster said....we'll ALWAYS have something to worry about with them.
I know my mom still worries about me, and her mom still worries about her. I guess it's part of being a mom.
