Baby monitor

A baby monitor is a device that alerts parents when their baby cries. One unit is near the baby’s cot, the other with a parent in a different room. When a baby begins to cry, for example, Mum or Dad will hear it on their device. There are also baby monitors with a camera that in addition to sound also transmits a current picture of the baby.

Batteries

Batteries are included in the package with Nanny and you don’t usually have to change them because they last a long time. However, if the device has signalled that they are low after a while, buy classic alkaline AA batteries. Rechargeable batteries are not suitable for Nanny.

Breathing monitor

A breathing monitor is a device that monitors a baby’s breathing in their sleep and is used to prevent sudden infant death syndrome. If the baby stops breathing, the breathing monitor triggers an alarm. The summoned parent can then give the child first aid in time.

C

Calibration

The sensor pad contains a sensor that captures even the baby’s smallest movements. Its service life is two years, then the sensitivity decreases. Therefore, on expiry of this period, it is essential to buy a new pad for the breathing monitor. The old pad cannot be "calibrated" and its use safely prolonged.

E

Extra sensor pad

If your baby often sleeps in two places, we recommend buying an extra sensor pad for the breathing monitor. You leave one permanently in the baby’s cot and the other, for example, with his/her grandmother who often watches the child.

F

False alarm

A false alarm occurs when the monitor triggers an alarm, but the baby is breathing normally. This occurs when the movement of the child's body is not transferred to the sensor pad.
