11 of the best baby monitors for peace of mind while your little one snoozes

Pros: Award-winning, features two-way audio, includes a lifetime warranty and can be upgraded with up to four extra cameras for a more in-depth picture system. It’s easy to use and does everything the other models in this guide to, except for the VTech’s night show function. 

Cons: Rather premium cost-wise, though it is reduced by £30 currently. 

Customers are saying: Could be louder on the talk-back feature, but generally speaking it’s got good picture quality, the 360 degree capacity is great and the reach is good in terms of using from the garden/downstairs.

Angel Care baby monitors

Cons: No night light. 

Customers are saying: Easy to set up, picks up all the sounds you need to hear – sniffles, crying etc. – and the zoom function is super helpful when you want a little closer look to check all’s ok.
