  • (what's this?)

    My sweet baby boy has had some health issues since he was 2 months old and the movement monitor gives me a lot of peace of mind that he is sleeping as safely as possible. I LOVE the wireless design! Jul 03, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Overall, decent to use along with a previously purchased monitor, or if you prefer another brand of audio/video monitor, but spring for an all in one video, audio movement monitor if you can. Apr 26, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Fantastic for anxiety prone parents. Easy to set up, works great, but you obviously have to pause it when you pick up the baby. It definitely gave me the peace of mind to sleep better! Apr 19, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I have it! I like it! But you also need to supplement it with an audio or visual monitor too. Apr 19, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Per our doctor's recommendation we kept our baby in our room until 6 months in a bassinet attachment to a pack-n-play. Since the bassinet attachment didn' Apr 18, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    This monitor was very loud & I had a hard time with set up. For first-time or concerned parents, this monitor is likely useful to give you confidence that your baby is doing just fine while sleeping. Apr 18, 2018

    I found it a bit difficult to get set up correctly, and rather loud. This seems to do the job, but I would prefer a monitor with more adjustable settings and other features. Apr 17, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    The setup is super easy and I liked that there are no cords to worry about since it is placed under the crib mattress. I would rather have an all-inclusive unit (video, movement, audio). Apr 17, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Would have liked this more had it not been for the incredibly loud beeping every few seconds when the device was paused during night feedings. I had to turn off then on instead. Apr 16, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Peace of mind for my tummy sleeping babe. Easy to use and adjust the sensitivity. Definitely recommend. Apr 16, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Worked fine as a movement monitor (if you have the right kind of mattress), but I didn't like that I need another audio monitor for the room also. Apr 16, 2018

    Like the idea but there are some bugs. Too sensitive even when adjusting and while taking care of baby it beeps even while on pause. Portable and gives peace of mind when it did work Apr 16, 2018

    Thanks to the weeSpring parent panel I received this item as a gift in exchange for my honest review. Overall it’s easy to set up but we couldn’t get the sensitivity to work well in our crib. Apr 16, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Easy to setup. Good for new parents. Loud beeping noises though if your baby is asleep and significant other. Apr 16, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Overall, it's not a must-have product for us. Apr 15, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Too sensitive and hard to install. Loud beeps if you forgot to reset and woke her sister up. Went off when she rolled over, better for a young infant who doesn't move in their sleep. Apr 15, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Was really sensitive and the instructions were REALLY confusing. Just the whole concept was weird...I'd rather just go and physically check on the baby myself! Apr 15, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    This product was something new for me and my husband; we were able to receive this product from the WeeSpring Parent Panel. This option provided both of us some extra peace of mind and another precaut Apr 15, 2018

  • You have to manually turn off/on the unit when removing your child from the crib or it will beep at you constantly- must be used with only a crib (not a bassinet or pack n play). Apr 15, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Easy to set up and use, can be loud but for a reason. Great peace of mind. Apr 15, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Useful for new parents with newborns - not needed for older babies, and I would still prefer a traditional video monitor. Apr 14, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Ease of use, easy set up. Great movement sensor. Provides piece of mind. Apr 14, 2018

  • Thanks to the WeeSpring Parent Panel I got to try the monitor. It was easy to set up but has quirks. Hate that it beeps when starting or pausing, that wakes the baby. An ok option for peace of mind. Apr 14, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I love that is movement monitor is wireless, allowing me to place my crib anywhere in the nursery without worrying about cords and outlets. Apr 14, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Great product! Really makes me feel secure knowing I will be notified if anything goes awry with my son. Only wish it had a video connected to it otherwise love it!! Apr 13, 2018

    I love that this monitor is wireless! Set up is so easy and it is so awesome not having cords hanging from the crib. This monitor gives so much peace of mind! Apr 12, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I was given this Movement Monitor to try as part of the weeSpring Parent Panel. I was excited to test out the AngelCare Movement Monitor. Although I am not new to parenthood, worrying about a newborn Apr 12, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Something I didn't think I needed, but it has actually been really nice to have that added peace-of-mind. Easy to setup, use, and haven't had any "false alarm" issues. I'd definitely recommend! Apr 12, 2018

  • 2nd time Mom here! With my oldest, I didn’t have a movement sensor and would often times wake in the middle of the night, to check on him. Now I sleep great knowing I will be alerted. Easy set up too! Apr 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Great for peace of mind, but not necessary! Easy to set up and simple to use. It would be nice if the alarm could be connected to a phone app or to my actual baby monitor. Apr 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Update- with stability board great monitor that provides peace of mind. Easy set-up; clear instructions. Worried much less using it when my 7 MO son had a bad cough. Apr 11, 2018

    Although it took some initial trial and error to get the right sensitivity setting for my crib, it provided excellent monitoring of my baby's movement. Great simple way to monitor baby's movement. Apr 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    The monitor needs to be set up on a solid base under the mattress. We needed to fashion something for our crib which was a lot of effort for not much additional peace of mind. Apr 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I love that my husband and I no longer drive ourselves crazy checking on our baby 3-5x times/night and we can finally get our evenings back worry-free! Apr 11, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Nice monitor for use in a traditional nursery. Not possible to be used while co-sleeping, and difficult for a pack and play, so less mobile than I would have liked. Good value for price though. Apr 10, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    Very easy to use, as well as very portable. It does everything it should. My only complaint is that it emits one loud beep when you turn it on Apr 10, 2018

  • (what's this?)

    I love the peace of mind this gives me when I sleep at night. But I hate that the monitor and the alarm have to be so close (within 3ft). I’d like to be able to attach it to me as I clean or whatnot. Feb 21, 2018
