Has anyone got this? Last night the alarm went off and I nearly had a heart attack. I looked in and touched my son and he he as fine by was diagonal in the Bassinet and I noticed this morning the sensor is in one bottom corner (that he isn’t on). I tried putting him in this position this morning again to see if it would replicate but he was awake and wriggling so the alarm didn’t go off.
Has anyone had this happen? Do I need to get him checked? He has had a minor cough but I got the dr to check this on monday when he had his vaccinations and she said his chest is fine
Freaked out mumma here! He seems fine except been a little unsettled the last few days but I put down to having 4 shots on Monday?

Oh those damn baby monitor pads - I think they cause more stress than they're worth.

They're not 100% reliable, and if your son seems fine you have nothing to worry about :)

I know it’s hard when you hear that for first time in nearly 6 months it made me question things!

I had the fan throw the sensors entirely in that it constantly thought a baby was breathing on top when there was and when there wasn't one.

As for going off, I never had it go off with baby on it. It went off all the time when I'd take baby out and forget to turn it off though!

I had the two sensors in the cot positioned such that they were evenly spread. So one top half in the middle of the top half, and same on the bottom. It is totally possible bub rolled into an odd position. I would see if you can reposition sensor/s to be in the middle more and see if that helps.

I drew great comfort from it and used it until DS went into a big bed. I do intellectually understand it probably was just an expensive mind sooth for me but hey, it made me feel better.

I have heard about the fans that hasn’t been an issue as we only have air con. I think as we only have 1 pad in the base of the Bassinet and it has moved to one corner whilst he was diagonally across the other that might be the issue?

I only had mine go off when I forgot to turn it off.  It gave me great peace of mind.  The best bit was being able to see the blinking light from the door which meant I never had to go in the room and risk waking them up just to check.
