When my daughters were babies we tiptoed around the house, praying not to wake them. Carrying a little monitor around with me alerted me when they were awake, but I was often found opening their squeaky door to peek in on them…which also often found them startled awake. These days there is a FANTASTIC option which I only wish I’d had, the Summer Infant Baby Touch® 2 Digital Color Video Monitor.
The Baby Touch® 2 Digital Colour Video Monitor reminds me of a miniature tablet; with touch screen capabilities on the 3.5″ video screen, you can keep an eye on your baby without having to peek in on him and risk the chance of waking. Thank you to Stacey of ThisLilPiglet for photos of her gorgeous wee man.
The monitor is easy to use; once you initially plug in the monitor and set the video monitor into position, the receiver monitor can easily manipulate the direction of the camera to move around the room remotely.
The receiver displays the room temperature so you can ensure baby won’t be overheated and by the push of a button, a fussy baby can be soothed by the sound of your voice remotely.
The video monitor automatically converts to black and white night vision and continues to make monitoring my baby easy from day to night.
Interestingly enough, the Baby Touch® 2 Digital Color Video Monitor works well for sneaky toddlers too. On one specific morning not too long ago, Stacey from ThisLilPiglet could hear her baby chattering only to view her toddler sitting inside his crib, books in hand. Before long she was explaining the pictures in the book to her baby brother. Had she not been able to watch closely from the monitor and to speak in to remind her to sit still, she might have been worried but I watched for awhile and watched a very touching moment unfold before her.
Award-winning touch screen baby monitor is the ONLY one of its kind. Featuring an innovative, high resolution 3.5″ color video screen and an easy-to-use touchscreen interface, the Baby Touch Boost gives parents controls right at their fingertips to conveniently and securely see baby, day or night.
- 100% digital technology for privacy and security, with a range up to 600-feet
- Expandable system – add cameras to monitor multiple children or rooms, up to 4 total (extra cameras sold separately, item #28850) with video and audio auto-scan between rooms
- Nightlight with remote on/off
- Handheld portability with rechargeable batteries, and convenient re-charge docking base, built-in belt clip, and kick-stand for tabletop convenience
- Adjustable volume and brightness controls
- Sound activated LED lights, power-save video on/off and low battery and out of range indicators.
- Wall-mounting hardware included, adjustable/swivel design allows for optimal positioning on baby.

Having a monitor would be good to see if the kid is just a bit awake or fully out and about so to speak.
it wouldn’t help me, but it would help my daughter’s friend. She’s going to be a new and young (18) mom..she can use all the help she can get!

My friend is a new mom again after, 10 years, this would be soooo awesome to share with her and her family. What a chance to see how far we’ve come, and peace of mind for Mom & Dad.
Andrea B. says
I would give this to by best friend who just had her baby. She lives on a farm and needs to do chores, so it would be perfect to watch the baby and do chores at the same time.
Cassandra Hudon says
My husband and I adopted two children who both have autism. They are now ten and require constant supervision. As any mom knows there are lots of other things that require attention and sadly I dont have eyes in the back of my head. This monitor would allow the boys the “freedom” and “independence” to play out of my line of vision without actually being unsupervised. Win-win for them and I
Victoria Ess says
I’d giv it to my friend who is expecting.
lori b says
my niece is expecting in December, this would be ideal for her.. baby’s room is upstairs with rest of bedrooms, so she could keep an eye on babe, while she is in kitchen, living room or whereever
we have a new grandchild so added peace of mind
I would give this to my Cousin that is expecting
Marie Constantineau says
I would give it to my cousin that way i’d know the baby was being taken care of well
My brother’s expecting his first baby and if I win I’m gifting this to the parents to be as a surprise! :)
I wouold give this to my sister, she could use it very much. I love the idea of not only being able to hear but see baby too.
Jennifer P. says
This would help me because my baby is a bit of a monkey and I would love to be able to SEE her with a monitor, rather than just hear her. Sometimes I check on her because I need to see what she is up to, but then I sometimes ruin her sleep because of it – if I could see her without having to go in and check that would be awesome!!
Judy C (Cowan) says
My nephew and his wife are expecting their first in the New Year and I am sure as first time parents this would help give them some peace of mind.
Tara Crawford says
this would help me as the baby would be in a different room and would give me great peace of mind seeing her
My niece is expecting a baby late January and this would be an excellent gift for her.
She wouldn’t have to constantly walk up stairs to check on her baby.

caryn s says
I would use this monitor to keep on eye on my daughter when she sleeps!
Monique L. S. says
I would use the monitor with my daughter. She often makes noise while sleeping, but I think she is still asleep. However, if I were to look in on her, that would certainly wake her up. Having a video monitor would allow me to see what she is doing, if she is up, or just making noise while she sleeps.
Susan Hubley says
This would help me keep an eye on my grandson while he’s in the playroom.
It would help me be able to keep an eye on my son :)

It would be great to see what she was doing instead of just guessing from the babbling.

It would be good to give as a Christmas gift
Angela Mitchell says
I’ve got an old monitor that I’m using right now as I write. It has no video and has a ton of static and the cord isn’t the original so it doesn’t quite fit in the the one end properly — you have to jiggle it a bit. So basically a new monitor would be awesome so I could have a properly working one and one that I could see what he’s up to as well for extra peace of mind.
jenn McClearn says
I would love to be able to watch my boys play in the playroom :)
Lisa R says
My three year old has this terrible habit of getting out of bed. I would love a video monitor so I would know for sure before going into his room.
Jessica Schultz says
I have 2 autistic boys. This would help me so much with while they play and I am cooking or cleaning to make sure they stay playing in their room or sleeping. One also sleep walks and knows how to get out the front door. So we have been nervous since that started.
Dianne Hall says
we are expecting and do not have a baby monitor yet!
Kristy. V says
I would love to be able to see my daughter when she is fussing to help determine weither she has to stay and cry it out a bit or if she is in real distress. Thanks!

Mariaelena Dominguez says
We just moved to a bigger apartment where my daughter who is 7 months old will finally have her own room so I would love this since we don’t have a monitor yet
This would help me monitor my baby without going in the room to see him.
I don’t have a monitor, so im still uncomfortable leaving him in his room for very long. this would give me peace of mind!
