Opinions on Baby Motion Monitors

Good Questions

Q: I'm expecting our first child in late February and have heard that an infant movement & sound monitor (like the Angelcare) is invaluable. Do your readers have any suggestions/experience with such an item?

Editor: I think it depends on your disposition and, to an extent, the size and layout of your home. Personally, I think motion monitors are unnecessary, but I did have a sound monitor that we used for about a year. Video monitors seem to be gaining in popularity, too. Readers, do you have a motion monitor - did it give you peace of mind or did you find it to be overkill?
