					?Choosing things for your baby used to be easy. There were only a limited number of
possibilities when it came time to buy a crib, high chair or baby monitor. There are
now a dizzying number of choices for these products. You want to get what's best for
your baby, but the question is, how do you determine the best quality and value for
baby products? Having so many choices can make it confusing; how do you know
you are picking the best products for your baby? In order to make shopping for your
baby less complicated, here are a few guidelines to follow.

First, you'll probably want to control the volume on your receiver. Every mother
wants to know the minute baby is unhappy, but you'll want to have a volume adjust
for practical reasons. Imagine flying out of your bed because it sounded like a three
alarm fire, and you rush in to discover your baby is playing with a toy and making
noise. You want to find a system that will transmit the sounds you want to hear at a
volume that is good for your ears. It may be, however, that you'll have to do your own
research on monitors. Look for brands that have been endorsed by industry giants like
Consumer Reports. In such a publication or website you can compare different brands
of monitors feature by feature and then make the best choice. You can learn which
brands are over-marketed, which ones are the best performing, which ones have the
best prices for their performance, etc. This is the best way to sort out which brands
give you the best value and which have a poor performance record. The best thing
about using this type of review is that they are unbiased. It's easy to put up positive
reviews on a company website, but they simply are not as trustworthy as reviews that
are created in the interest of education instead of sales.

This may not sound important, but it's a great idea to have a system with a low-battery
alarm. You'll need to remember to return your receiver to its docking station or switch
batteries because you don't want your monitor to go out during the night. Hey, it will
eliminate another worry in your life.

There is a lot to take in when you want to purchase your baby monitor. Find out if you
want your system to be extensive, assess how much you are willing to spend, and
consider whether or not the system will get in the way of your other daily activities as
well. Take some time to do your research, because the best decisions are made when
you are informed.
