Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Digital Video Sensor Pad Baby Monitor Review

IMG_5426

I am a nervous Nelly when it comes to my children… always have been, especially after losing our Emilee at 5 days. I didn’t sleep well during the first six months of all four of their lives. Even though they were either next to the bed in a bassinet or actually co-sleeping with us, I would wake multiple times during the night to check on them.

When I heard about the Tommee Tippee Closer to Nature Digital Video Sensor Pad Baby Monitor I knew it would be perfect for my sister-in-law, as she was quite like me in that respect. Knowing that the monitor would sound an alarm if it didn’t sense movement for a certain amount of time would have given me enough reassurance that I might not have been as sleep deprived as I was.

Digital Video and DECT Audio Sensor Pad Monitors
Tommee Tippee’s new Digital Video and DECT Audio Sensor Pad Baby Monitors are scientifically designed with a unique under mattress sensi-sleep padTM that monitors baby’s movement and alerts you if baby has not moved in 20 seconds. The monitor’s features include clear sound, long- range capabilities and baby room temperature display. Plus, the Digital Video Monitor offers clear video with a large, clear screen that automatically changes to infrared vision in the dark.

The monitor was actually very similar to other video monitors I’ve used. The sensor pad was new to me but looked fairly simple to set up.

Features and Benefits

  • Sensitive sensor pad to monitor baby’s movement (alarms after 20 seconds of undetected movement)
  • Talk-back feature to comfort baby with your voice from afar
  • Long-distance range (up to 1,000 feet)
  • Secure Interference-free monitoring
  • Easy-to-read LCD display
  • Baby’s room temperature display
  • Adjustable gentle night light
  • Auto-channel select Parent unit locator

I decided to play with the video portion a bit before sending it to it’s new home. I loved the clarity, the ease of use (very intuitive) and the temperature sensor. The monitor uses digital technology with 2.4 GHz FHSS for interference free monitoring and video camera with zoom function, 2.8 inch full color LCD screen and infrared night vision camera so you can see your baby day or night. If you look at the upper left side of the blue bar you will see it shows the sensor pad is not plugged in. That would reassure me that I have it assembled correctly. I was pleased with the monitor, but how would it perform with the sensor pad?

I gave the monitor to my sister-in-law to use on her new baby Liam. What did she think?

The baby monitor is super easy to set up. We were a little daunted when we first started reading through the manual, but it’s much easier than it looks. Once we figured out that we can turn down or up the sensitivity, it’s worked great. We love the picture on the camera…. you can see him very clearly. We also love that we don’t have to be nervous wrecks all night long, wondering if he’s ok because he’s so quiet. The alarm already alerted us one evening because he hadn’t moved in too long. He was fine, but it made us feel like we had an extra layer of protection. Even though he’s my second baby, I’m still a little nervous about SIDS. The manual clearly states that it is NOT a prevention for SIDS, but it still makes me feel better.

Comments

  1. Kelly Andrus says:

    I didn’t know they had a review section to read other’s parents experiences with their products. Very helpful.

  2. Kendal Barriere says:

    unique & all-natural blend of ingredients

  3. Kendal Barriere says:

    I prefer Rafflecopter for everything except for the ease of tweeting about giveaways. The giveaway tools widget is easier for that. It takes a little longer for the “clicking” of the submit entry button to go through.

  4. victoria lester says:

    I’m not a fan of rafflecoppter, I don’t think I’ve won with it yet…. so I would have to say I like the giveaway tools better. Yet both in my opinion are similar.

  5. Brandy says:

    I learned a bit about BBT being a temp used to monitor for fertility

  6. Melissa H. says:

    I learned that the TTC kit has been shown to help women with PCOS conceive!

  7. Melissa H. says:

    I agree that this form is easier for tweeting!

  8. Cheryl W says:

    I like that you can customize a kit

  9. Jennifer H says:

    I liked the reviews the site offered on the product

  10. trisha scott says:

    Id like to try the Get pregnant sooner

  11. trisha scott says:

    I like this better than the rafflecopter although I dont like how you cant go back and fix something once youve submitted

  12. kelly says:

    I like the 30 day money back guarantee

  13. kelly says:

    I prefer rafflecopter because this one takes longer

  14. jodi lasher says:

    I like that you can customize a kit to better suit you.. It’s easy to use also.

  15. jodi lasher says:

    I love rafflectopter so much better. Just seems much simpler to me and alot quicker, but this way is not bad either lol

  16. Tina M says:

    I learned that it hels regulates your cycle

  17. Corinne Soto says:

    i just like that they put everything together in one package. When we were TTC for my Son, i was searching websites and printing out different types of BBT charts, trying to find my own BBT thermometer at the drugstore, etc. Plus you get OP sticks. I wish they had this 3 years ago!

  24. ally says:

    I actually own of these. although it’s not the cheapest video monitor for baby, it is certainty one of the more functional ones. Love the sensor pad.

  25. Jude Skocki Kelly says:

    It is save to take while breast feeding

  26. Jude Skocki Kelly says:

    I think that giveaway tool is somewhat easier to enter the giveaways. Rafflecopter, however, gives you the opportunity to make a correction if you need to.

  27. The ConceiveEasy® TTC Kit™ System is an all-in-one, 100% drug-free solution for conceiving

  28. I have only used it a couple times. It took me longer but I think it was due to learning the way it operates. If it gets quicker for me, I think I’ll really like it!

    freebiegoddess03@aol.com

  31. Katy P says:

    I learned you just take one pill a day.m

  32. I love Tommee Tippee! The only bottle my one granddaughter would take when mom quit nursing.

  33. Katy P says:

    I probably prefer raffle copter, but the giveaway tools is not too bad

  34. I like them both! Their are pros and cons to them both.

  35. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    I like that you can try it for 30 days and if you do not like it you get money back.

  36. Alex Liz Robinson says:

    I like them both. The tweeting is nice on the giveaway tools.

  37. Karen Gonyea says:

  40. Kristie Betts says:

    I love the Giveaway Tool it’s so easy to use.

  41. Kimberly Bauer says:

    I learned that taking ConceiveEasy can help regulate your period

  42. I was very happy to see that the ConceiveEasy kit is 100% Drug Free, safe and all natural.With so many products on the line containing unsafe ingredients-this seems like a breath of fresh air! It was wonderful to read that they offer a 30 day-risk free trial!

  43. I really don’t have a preference of Giveaway Tools vs. Rafflecopter..both make it easier to earn the entry points! Thanks!

  44. Christina says:

    I learned that 98% of people who have used conceive easy would recommend it to others… it has great reviews

  45. Christina says:

    I prefer rafflecopter, I think it is much more user friendly. My facebook email is always different than my email subscription email. I don’t care for the giveaway tools and how handles the email subscription entries to make the bloggers away of the fact I do get thier emails, just not at the email address I use to sign into tools like this.

  46. Amanda Alvarado says:

    Aside from this monitor that I have been drooling over for awhile, I’d love to try their new Double Electric Breast Pump. BTW the link in the form is for the ConceiveEasy web site…

  47. Amanda Alvarado says:

    I’m not sure on this Giveaway Tools on this blog yet. I know I love them at Makobi Scribe. It seemed for the 2 giveaways I entered here that they took longer to enter than if they would have been rafflecopter forms. It took forever for it to verify my entries so I could submit. Will have to see – maybe it’s just my computer is running slower today! 🙂

  48. Kris says:

    it can help even if you have fertility issues

  49. Kris says:

    i prefer raffle copter because it is quicker overall

  50. Lindsay Sorensen says:

    I like the kit customizing

  51. Sarh S says:

    I like what all comes in the kit. It seems as if there should be plenty to get started with and possibly last you until you conceive.

  52. Sarh S says:

    I like Giveaway Tools better then Rafflecopter. It’s easier to enter and seems to load better.

  53. Sue Hull says:

    I’d love to win this for my future grandbaby. Thanks for the giveaway!

  54. April Brenay says:

    love that it is so easy to custom!

  55. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I learned that ConceiveEasy is a monthly reproductive support system. Each month is indicated by the number on the label and contains a different and unique pharmaceutical grade blend.

  56. Jennifer Hedden says:

    I prefer the Rafflecopter method. I have only used this method and Rafflecopter and I think Rafflecopter is more efficient. I noticed on this version that if you just click on the twitter follow it will accept it even if it does not allow you to follow on twitter.

  57. Catie says:

    I learned ConceiveEasy is 100% drug-free.

  58. Catie says:

    I do not like Giveaway Tools. In theory it is a great tool, but the fact you have to be logged in with the Facebook and Twitter accounts is inconvenient. Sometimes those accounts are acting up and I cannot log in properly, therefore I am unable to claim those entries on GT giveaways.

    Also the fact that you have to confirm email subscriptions – it just seems to take so much more time than RC. I honestly have found myself skipping GT giveaways more often than entering them.

  59. I learned it’s a drug-free solution and has a 4.8 out of 5 rating from reviewers.

  60. I MUCH prefer Rafflecopter. Giveaway forms is slower for me.

  61. an all-natural blend of ingredients to help boost your fertility – all in one easy to use Kit.

  62. Jill H says:

    I learned about the BBT and ovulation correlation.

  63. Jill H says:

    I like them both for different reasons. I think that the Rafflecopter and Giveaway Tools are equally easy and user friendly.

  64. I prefer rafflecopter..

  65. kathy m says:

    looks like a great product, no side effects

  66. Virginia Wright says:

    Conceive easy can regulate your menstrual cycles

  67. Emily says:

    I learned that it is safe to take while breastfeeding!

  68. brooke t says:

    i like the new one but can’t use it on my non-mac

  69. Ellen B says:

    you can customize – I like rafflecopter better than this new system

  70. Summer says:

    I learned that you can take it even if you are breastfeeding.

  71. brooke t says:
  72. Sandy VanHoey says:

    It is an an all-natural blend of ingredients to help boost your fertility – all in one easy to use Kit.

  73. Sam Eagle says:

    ConceiveEasy® TTC Kit™ System works great for:

    Unexplained infertility
    Regulating cycles
    Increasing fertile CM
    Stimulating ovulation
    Lengthening luteal phase

  74. kimbuckjr says:

    I learned that ….”ConceiveEasy® is clinically proven effective in overcoming the most common obstacles to conception, and has been demonstrated in limited studies to help women conceive who have PCOS.”

    kimbuckjr

  75. christine jessamine says:

    i prefer rafflecopter! thanks for the giveaways

  76. kimbuckjr says:

    I prefer Rafflecopter because it doesn’t make me ‘confirm/subscribe’ to entry methods I already subscribe to, like your RSS Feed and/or email updates.
    I hope that makes sense. Sorry!
    kimbuckjr

  77. Naina John says:

    I liked easy conceive kit
    http://ttckit.com/products/conceive-easy-ttc-kit-system/reviews/
    Its very useful for ladies who wants to conceive

  78. Naina John says:

    I feel rafflecopter more easy for entering sweepstakes. I am new to sweepstaking and have found raffle copter more easier. It takes less time in submitting via rafflecopter

  79. Diane Zielinski says:

    They have a 30 day risk free guarantee on the kit.

  80. kelley says:

    Temp. can be used to measure fertility.

  81. kelley says:

    I prefer rafflecopter, but probably just because I have used it more.

  82. Livivua Chandler says:

    i learned how to use the products

  83. Livivua Chandler says:

  94. tamar says:

    Pretty sure the form meant to ask us to comment on Tommee Tippee and not on TTC fertility so I’m going to say I like the closer to nature ® microwave steam sterilizer from Tommee Tippee.

  95. Marla B says:

    I learned that ConceiveEasy® is a 100% Drug Free, safe and all natural solution for enhancing your body’s own natural fertility and dramatically increasing your chances of conception.

  96. Marla B says:

    I like rafflecopter better. I have problems being able to click in the box to post on this one! Tweeting and following on twitter is easier however.

  99. Harriett Daniel says:

    I like that it has a 30 day risk free guarantee.

  100. Harriett Daniel says:

    I like the layout, but this takes just a little longer for the FB likes. But it is faster on the Twitter followers entries. So i guess it may be about the same!
