Turn Down the Monitor
Turn your baby monitor down to the lowest volume or off altogether. And stop worrying if you're in earshot of your baby's room, you'll mostly likely hear her cries when she really needs you. "We can hear a baby crying without any technology from across the hall," says Dr. Germain. "I think this is a parental comfort issue."
Dr. Sadler adds that the baby monitor is better for older infants whose parents can then be out in the yard but still aware of when the baby awakens.
