Hmmm…maybe reviews of baby monitors/smart diapers/etc? :wink:

Do I really seem like the type of person who would buy a ton of baby monitors or “smart diapers”? I’m not even sure what the second is, but it sounds like something that wouldn’t be particularly cost effective given that we already have a perfectly serviceable set of cloth diapers. We’ve got a baby monitor we use, audio only, and while I certainly admit curiosity about what, exactly, kids are doing in their bed sometimes, we just poke our nose in and look if it’s particularly not-in-bed sounding.

If someone wants to send me baby monitors or other things to review, I’ll certainly make use of them, but they’re not the sort of thing I’d spend any money on.

Ha! I was mostly joking.
