In the days before baby monitors, bedtime and lunchtime were (and are) a well-deserved break for parents. But they haven’t necessarily relaxed during those times. Leaving the baby alone on the second floor of the house or in a hallway usually resulted in a few visits to the nursery to see if everything was okay. But with a monitor, parents can breathe a little easier. That scream will let them know if they are needed.

But which monitor should you buy? Our recommendation is the Nanit Plus camera. Here’s why.

Developed for parents with a more flexible baby equipment budget, the Nanit Plus is a high-end baby monitor that does what it says on the tin. Recognized as one of the best inventions of 2018 by TIME magazine, this baby monitor features two-way audio, a night light with gradual dimming, night vision, smart sensors and much more.

The 960 pixel HD camera provides night vision for easier tracking of the baby. There are two models for mounting the camera, either on the wall or with a floor stand. Using the monitor in an open space such as the living room is as easy as supporting it in a child’s room. If you use the monitor with your smartphone, you can hear the baby even when other apps are open or when your screen is locked. For an additional fee (after one year), the Nanit records the length and sleep pattern of your baby.

The Nanit Plus Camera is a product from Amazon that has received thousands of rave reviews and a rating of 4/5. Happy parents appreciate how well the camera connects to their smartphone (and how patient the Nanit support team is), while others praised the Nanit for its ease of movement and setup. The camera and its features are also highly acclaimed, and a number of parents have also noted the insights the camera provides, which helps them get “closer” to their baby, even from a distance.

The Nanit Plus camera is our recommended high-end baby monitor that should stand the test of time … or more babies on the street.
