Tomy Walkabout Classic Advance Monitor £23.99 @ Amazon
Baby monitors were a MUST for me for several reasons.
1) the walls in my house are 2 feet ghick and noise doesn't travel well - so with me in one room and a baby in another a monitor was essential.
2) peace of mind - both during the day and night time (once they were in their own bedrooms). Having a monitor on during the day meant I could be getting on with other things rather than having to sit in silence waiting for them to wake up; during the night I could sleep without keeping one ear open just so that I wouldn't sleep through them if they woke up!
