    Has anyone got this/getting this & is it worth the money?

    I like the fact it's got a digital temperature reader too!

    Thanks in advance :petal:

    Soooo worth it for the peace of mind it gives you! Z was a right wriggler though when he got older and the alarm would go off if he managed to get himself horizontal across the very top of the cot, but I'd rather have a false alarm than miss it if he actually stopped breathing. Xxx

    We have the tommee tippee sensors mat and found it so reassuring. We had a few false alarms too once my LO started moving but I'd rather that than him to have stopped breathing x

    If you join amazon family you can get an additional £24 off so get it for £49. You can cancel it after three months x

    If you google amazon family and join. When you checkout the discount is applied but you sometimes have to wait a day or so for it to apply. When you joins go to your prime account and turn off auto upgrade x

    I've got it and still use it and my lo is 23 months. We are turning off the sensor pad after he turns 2. We have had a couple of false alarms but would rather that than for it not to go off.
    Can't recommend it highly enough.

    Hiya, my lo is nearly three and we used it until he was about two. I used to use it in his Moses basket too. In the instructions it says to plase the sensor mat on a flat surface, plywood cut to size if the bed has slats. I think this reduces false alarms, but we just used a bit if stiff cardboard and it seemed fine. Out and out it was our very best baby buy! We got a cheaper version for my mums house, tommee tippee I think and it was ok, but not a patch on the angelcare!

    I know you've already bought it, but I'd also recommend it! We never used the sensor mat, but used the monitor. Our LO is 15 months now and although we don't use it on a regular basis, it's great for times like yesterday when she needed her afternoon nap and we wanted to be in the garden. Definitely gives you peace of mind.

    yeh iv had people say to me "ooo ul be getting false alarms and worrying" to which i answered "id rather have a false alarm and know baby is fine, than have no alarm at all and not know....at least if alarm goes off you know its working whether its false or not"....baby is far too precious to take any chances IMO
