Portable baby monitors give parents a great deal of flexibility — their small size means they can be moved from room to room or to a different location very easily. Generally these units are wireless, adding to the transportability. Some portable baby monitors use a parent’s smart phone to show video so parents can check in on their babies without a separate device. When choosing a portable baby monitor, look for good range, easy-to-read displays, and adjustable sound sensitivity levels for the best experience. Video is an add-on that will add expense to the portable baby monitor you purchase — go with audio only if you are looking to save on costs.
