A baby monitor is a must for a parent's peace of mind. You'll know when your baby is up and when he or she needs your attention. If you want to keep a closer eye on your baby, there are options for that as well. Here are some of the best baby monitors you can buy.

Our advice

All of these will do the job of monitoring your baby, letting you know when he or she is awake, and allowing you to speak to your baby with two-way talk. Which model you choose depends on your needs. The best all-around choice is the GoodBaby Video Baby Monitor (opens in new tab), which has the features most parents want at a fair price point. The 2.4-inch LCD screen lets you keep an eye on your baby via enhanced 2.4GHz wireless technology. Infrared night vision, temperature monitoring, two-way audio, sound activation, long-range support, feeding alarm, wall mount option, digital camera zoom, and easy plug-and-play operation make this a popular choice.

However, if your child has health concerns, if you want every moment closely monitored and recorded, or if you want to monitor your baby from anywhere in the world via your smartphone, then the ultra-premium Miku Smart Baby Monitor (opens in new tab) is the way to go. You can share and download unlimited HD video and photos of your baby right from your iPhone or other smartphones. Your child can listen to customized sleep sounds and lullabies on this monitor's Ole Wolff speakers. Your data is secure due to the 216-bit encryption.
