What is Mum 2 Mum? Mum 2 Mum is a place where as online friends we can share a little of our own experiences, so why not pop in for a cuppa and join the conversation.
I have a wee confession to make. Immy is now 3 and we still sleep with a baby monitor on. Admittedly, her bedroom is quite a way from ours and we would be unlikely to hear her wake if we were asleep and we didn’t have the monitor. Some nights this wouldn’t be a bad thing – like when she is really restless and keeps me awake half the night – but I do worry on nights when she is unwell or upset that we won’t hear her. And that if we didn’t have the monitor my sleep would be even more interrupted as I would be trying to sleep with one ear open to hear her if she called! The one positive that I do think comes from our use of the monitor is that Immy doesn’t come into us during the night, she stays in her own bed, so at least when she is sleeping soundly, we are all sleeping soundly 🙂
But it does make me wonder… if and when I will ever be free from sleeping with the constant electronic buzz of a monitor next to my head!
Do you use a baby monitor? Why or why not? And at what age did you get rid of it? Do you get up to your kids, or do your kids come in to you in the night?
P.S. Pop over later today when I will share a new video blog about children learning to read.
