Yeah but we're getting a really basic one that's only like $30 and doesn't have all the extras they seem to! Baby will be sleeping in our room and probably napping with me in the living room during the day and there's going to be my fiance and I plus my parents in the house so I don't foresee too often that we'll be far away from him but I'm getting a cheap one just in case!
I have one; I never expected to. BUT... We live in a big, really old house. There's no AC. The only room that is air-conditioned in the summer is our bedroom. If we put baby to bed and wanted to be anywhere outside that room, we needed a monitor because the door would be closed. So we got a sound-only monitor and that did the trick for us. We've since used it other places (holiday to San Francisco to visit my sister-in-law, my in-laws' house when we were there late into the evening, etc.).

I think we are getting the Angelcare monitor (detects movement/breathing thingy) it seems to be similar in price of the other ones i was looking at with additional benefit. Not for everyone but i think it will give us new parents extra piece of mind
We had a video monitor for Noah and loved it!!! Noah hardly ever cries (i know, im lucky and probably won't be with this one), so if we didn't have the video, I wouldn't know if he was awake or asleep or what he was doing. And now that he is in a big boy bed, it really helps me keep an eye on him. I haven't decided what we are doing about this one...whether we should move the monitor and have Noah with no monitor, or buy one with 2 cameras or buy her her own separate monitor. I also am not sure which one to get. We had the Summer Infant best view but it's the older model which is apparently tons better than the new one, but it's broken, sort of. You have to smack it to get the video to turn on.

We use one. Baby will be in our room for a while, but if baby is napping, and we're downstairs, we can't hear baby. Or if baby goes to bed before us, and we're still up, we can't hear baby. In the summer, we have the ACs on and the doors closed, so I can't hear anything outside of my room.
yes, we will have a sound only one as well. Our house is 3 stories and if DH is in his workshop while the baby is napping and I am at work he will need to be able to hear the little one. I don't think we will need it at night, but more for daytime usage.
Our house is small, but we will still use one. Our room is at the opposite side of the house from the 2 kids' rooms. We'd probably be able to hear her cry, but I'd much rather have a monitor just in case. We've always used one with Jayden and only just stopped using it for him when we moved him out of his crib and into a big boy bed. Now he just gets up and comes to get us if he needs something lol. Plus I like that we can go outside and do yard work or whatever while he takes a nap. So a monitor for the baby for sure for us.
