Talk & Soothe Digital Video Monitor Review (The First Years)

What It Is

The First Years Talk and Soothe Digital Video Monitor allows parents to see, listen, and talk to their baby without even being in the room. This is a color-screen monitor with a 600-foot extended range and rechargeable batteries. The parent unit has a sound level indicator, and parents can zoom and pan the room. Other features include a two-way talkback button that allows parents to talk to baby and soothe him from another room and a color LCD screen that activates and lights up when baby cries. Additionally, this monitor has three pre-set soothing lullabies that can be played for baby when baby wakes at night. The monitor's night vision allows parents to check in on baby while he's sleeping. It also works as a nightlight that can be turned on or off from the parent unit. You can add up to four additional parent units to this monitor, and all are sold separately. The clip in the back allows you to attach it to your body while you walk around the house or you can prop it up on a desk or kitchen counter using the kickstand.
