When you’re expecting, filling out that baby registry is one of the most exciting things you get to do! Even parents who aren’t having their first use registries, baby shower or not, because of the great nursery completion discounts that exist. It's our job to help you sort out the essentials.

And what is one thing that almost everyone has on their baby registry? A baby monitor of course. There are so many different baby monitors out there from smart monitors with all the bells and whistles to simpler baby monitors. No matter what your parenting style or budget preferences are, there is a baby monitor for you.

Which Best Baby Monitor is Best for Your Baby?

Baby monitors are all about peace of mind and any good-quality monitor you choose can help give you that. We’re here to help you narrow down your options and figure out which features are most important to you!

You will find that our latest Baby Gear Momtrends MVP’S List is wide-ranging. So, you should be able to find a baby monitor to fit your family’s needs. Our top picks are sure to please techies, design fans and budget watchers alike.

Baby Monitors for Every Budget

If you’re concerned about privacy and aren’t comfortable with baby monitors that connect to wifi, this is the choice for you! And you don’t have to sacrifice function for that privacy. It has a 1000 foot range, a large screen, two-way audio so you can talk to your baby and even lullabies!

I love the peace of mind the Spaceview Pro gives parents. We stress about our babies enough, a secure connection shouldn’t be one of them.

Best Non-Wifi Baby Monitor

Now a video feed might not even be something you want or need. In that case, an audio baby monitor is more than sufficient. And this one comes with two parent monitors. I’m a big fan of anything that comes with a spare. Haha! And you can speak to your baby from any room in the house thanks to the intercom feature.

I’m here for the crisp, clear sound this monitor delivers and the soft, soothing night light is a serious bonus!

Best Audio Baby Monitor

This is another non-wifi video monitor so if you want phone connectivity, it’s best to look elsewhere. BUT if you want security AND an awesome camera, look no further. The one-touch Zoom feature is so useful and with the auto-pilot mode the monitor will continuously span the room making it perfect especially for when your baby gets older and is on the move.

I’m all about the functionality of the camera in this video monitor. The quality of the picture is top-notch. No more fuzzy feeds!

Baby Monitor with the Best Camera

Techies will love this system. Mark my words. It’s not a bargain option, but this bundle of baby monitoring pieces is worth its price tag. Not only does it come with a state of the art overhead-view camera complete with a stand that makes it portable, but it also comes with a sheet that measures baby’s growth,

My favorite thing about this baby monitoring system is the breathing wear. Whether you use the breathing band it comes with or add the swaddle and/or pajamas to your arsenal, your baby’s breathing will be monitored!

Best Wearable Baby Monitor

I’m not saying you should give up on the features you want from a video monitor in favor of something cute, BUT if you could have both, now that’s appealing right? Well, it doesn’t get much cuter than the bunny design of this camera! And you app fanatics will love how you can monitor your baby right from your phone with the Arlo app no matter where you are!

I love how seamlessly the design of this baby monitor fits in with modern nurseries! And at well under $200, it’s a great price point.

Best Baby Monitor Design

If you have more than one child, a split screen monitor is a game-changer. It allows you to monitor both of your kids with one device which cuts down on cost and gear. Why buy two monitors when you don’t have to? It’s great for twins too if you want to monitor babies who are side by side. This Babysense monitor has many of the features our other picks do like a 360 degree view, temperature monitoring, zoom, night view and more.

What I like best about this monitor is knowing that I can keep an eye on two kids at one time without sacrificing feed quality!

Best Split Screen Baby Monitor

If unassuming describes your sense of style, you’re going to love this smart baby camera that comes in at under $150. The Lollipop is super small and can be attached wherever you want. You can attach it to the crib, the wall or even stand it up. And you can even get the matching sensor that plugs in, and practically disappears, to monitor temperature, humidity and air quality.

My favorite feature is that you can play white noise. When my son was a baby a white nose machine saved our sleep. I love that you get both a camera that can recognize true crying from other types of noise and soothing sounds with this device!

Best Small Scale Baby Monitor

Sometimes you don’t need all the bells and whistles. Maybe you’re the kind of person who simply wants a baby monitor that will work but won’t break the bank. This Lefun monitor still delivers plenty of useful features like two-way audio, live video feed, smart device connectivity etc.

I love how easy it is to set up the Lefun baby monitor. We didn’t set up our first baby’s monitor in advance and it would have been so helpful to have one that didn’t come with a novel’s worth of instructions. Sleep-deprived parents need EASY to use products. Am I right?!
