Review: Tommee Tippee Crystal Clear Suresound Ultimate Baby Monitor

August 12, 2010

Whilst tweeting for advice on the best baby monitor to buy for our boy due in 5 weeks (did I really say 5 weeks?) I was offered the opportunity to test and review the Tommee Tippee Suresound Ultimate Baby Monitor. 

For the past week we have been road-testing it with our daughter Little Bean who is 2 years old.

Tommee Tippee has been a household name for years, one which you associate with quality and peace of mind for your baby/children.  That couldn’t be more true than with this product.  It has given us complete peace of mind that whilst we are downstairs watching TV, out in the garden enjoying the night air or sleeping in our bed – our daughter is sleeping soundly in her room.

The Suresound Ultimate Monitor comes with a sensor pad which is placed under baby’s mattress directly under the area where the baby sleeps.  The lead then passes under the cot to the baby unit.  The sensor pad has the ability to monitor your baby’s tiniest movements via the highly sophisticated sensors.  When I initially looked at buying one of these monitors myself, I was worried that if baby wasn’t a “mover” then the alarm would be going off every 20 seconds.  However, the sensors are so sensitive they detect the movement from the baby simply breathing.  I remember so well from the early days bringing Little Bean home, the number of times that I would stand by her cot watching for her chest rising and falling, or prodding her to make her move just so that I could be sure she was still breathing.  Now I wish I had researched a bit further because all i need to do now is look at the baby or parent unit to see the light flashing without disturbing the baby.  If no movement or breathing is detected over a 20 second period an alarm will sound giving you vital early warning that something isn’t right.

The baby unit has a night light with a dimmer switch which enables you to check on your baby without having to switch on lamps or overhead lights, or even leave on for your baby if you are so inclined.  Personally, I go with the philosophy that baby didn’t have a night light in the womb for 9 months but that’s just me!

The parent unit is fully portable and has a belt clip which means you can carry on with the never-ending house work and gardening (yes you can even use it outdoors) whilst baby is sleeping.  With a range of approximately 100 metres that’s a lot of work you can be doing.  There is also an out of range indicator if you go too far!

It has auto channel select to ensure the best, crystal clear sound quality without interference.  The baby unit also shows the room temperature so that baby can sleep comfortably.

At a recommended retail price of £109.99 it isn’t the cheapest on the market but when it comes to baby’s safety there should be no compromise for peace of mind.

    Let me say that I am a father of three beautiful children. As parents our main priority is to make sure that our babies are safe and secure at all times, at whatever expense necessary. Now, if advanced technonlogy can be incorporated to assist parents and help relieve some of the stress associated with being a concerned parent, then all parents should be all for it. Just my two cents.

    The weight of the hunting knife is a balance between being as light as
    possible without sacrificing power. The serrated sandwich spreader is a
    convenience knife that can be replaced by on the other knives plus a spatula.
    More exotic materials usually only seen on art or
    ceremonial knives include: Cattle bone, mammoth tooth,
    mammoth ivory, walrus tusk, antler (often called
    stag in a knife context), sheep horn, buffalo horn.

    s better to use whole foods made from scratch
    for good health. Cucumber contains sterols which can
    help to lower cholesterol and prevent carbohydrates from converting to body fat.
    Hence, broccoli is a must-add ingredient in your vegetarian weight loss diet.

    Believing that you are actually starving, it releases chemicals that actually make
    it harder to lose weight in an effort to
    conserve energy. Vinson had participants keep their normal diet and exercise routines (or lack thereof) and merely added the green coffee.

    When you’re about to start on your weight loss plan, it’s a
    good idea to think about your end goal and chunk it down into smaller goals.
