I absolutely LOVE this video monitor. I have used other video monitors in the past and the video functionality of this one is FANTASTIC! The picture is very clear and you can adjust the lighting on the screen to various settings. The lullaby features are an amazing, there are 3 different lullabies and they range from a slower beat to more of an upbeat one, which is really nice so you can pick one based on your baby's needs. The handheld device is lightweight and not much bigger than a cellphone. I also like that you can talk back from the handset. Overall, this is a terrific product and it is an AMAZING price. It makes the perfect gift for new or expecting parents!

Through Jan. 31, 2014, customers who purchase specially marked The First Years monitors (the new Talk & Soothe Digital Video Monitor, the Crisp & Clear Double or Single Audio Monitor) in-store at Target will receive a gift from Snapfish, including a FREE classic photo book or a discount off of their entire photo book order.

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Tomoson.com. Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

  11. I've been trying to figure out what kind of monitor to use since before the baby was born (9 weeks ago!) So I really love getting to read a review on one of the ones I am considering. The picture on the monitor looks great, and I'll have to share this with my S/O to see what he thinks!

  16. I wanted one of these when my son was born. He was a preemie and it scared the life out of me. You could hear him, but couldn't see him. That made me pace floors back and forth to his room. I'm glad to know that these exist now. I just wish I could had afforded one then. It would had saved my nerves!

  25. This is the worst monitor. DO NOT BUY THIS. Obviously this girl reviewed it in exchange for free goods...DUH. If you actually use it you will see that it is terrible. You cant even see your kid on screen. Ridiculous. DO NOT BUY THIS!!!
