Video Monitors which one to get?

Hi everyone

I am after any advice or recommendations for a video baby monitor. I need to buy one now and none of my friends have one they all used the standard type monitor, but we live in an upside down house so baby will be upstairs sleeping and we'll be downstairs, and to save us running up and down all night would really like a video monitor so I can see what she is doing!
If anybody has one or used one can you please let me know what you think of it...any advice welcome.
Thank you

We have one called Summer. It was a bit more expensive, but is really brilliant. One thing I would say is that if you want to use the Angelcare movement monitor, then I think they do a sound, video and movement one. We decided after we had the baby to get one, but just got the movement and sound as we'd already bought the video monitor, but if I was to do it all again I'd buy it all in one! Xxx

We have, this week, bought a Motorola one, which was about £100. I have wanted one for ages and decided that after a minor accident this week I was definitely getting one. It's fab. I can watch him sleeping and see him moving.

I found that I would often disturb my LO sleeping when I had the sound monitor as he was usually fast asleep when he was making noises and I would wake him up by going in. With this video monitor I can see him move, hear him breathe and see when his eyes are open or closed - it has infrared night vision so his eyes brighten up when they are open.

They are all various prices and this one was about £100 so we didn't get the cheapest but it was no way the most expensive one.

I have the summer infant and love it. I was able to buy an extra camera which is great as they are in different rooms. Well worth the money :)
