The BT Video Baby Monitor 6000 has now been discontinued, but you can shop other baby monitors, that have been tried and tested by parents.

At a glance:

The BT Baby Monitor 6000 is all you need to keep watch over your little one. It is packed with great features, allowing you to hear, see and talk to your baby while not in the room, all with a range of additional features. Two-way talk allows you to reassure and comfort from another room, five lullabies, temperature display, wall mountable camera, remote pan, tilt and zoom allows you to adjust the camera while not in the room.

Would you recommend this to other mums?

Charlotte:  I would definitely recommend this product. It's really simple and intuitive to use with very little setup time. The video quality seems good and the screen size is large enough to be able to see clear detail. It is also really easy to adjust the camera to make sure the baby is in the shot. It also has a built-in thermometer which makes working out what to dress her in for sleeping really easy and eliminates the need for another product.

Elizabeth: I would 100% recommend this product to mothers as it has been a lifesaver. The added features of two-way talk, temperature displays, lullabies and remote control panning has made evenings a lot easier as I can keep an eye on my baby whilst she sleeps. The temperature monitor has also been an invaluable aid in the recent hot weather.

Zara: This product is one of the best video monitors I have ever used. It is brilliant! I love how you can talk to your child while you're not in the room as that really settles my child if she is upset. I would definitely recommend this product, especially if you have more than one child in the same room.

How did this product make your life easier?

Jane: It is reassuring to be able to see and hear my baby. The screen is large and video quality is superb. It is easy to navigate the monitor and the instruction manual was very clear. The camera looks nice, the product is slim and lightweight which makes it easy to pack away and take on holiday. Being able to play lullabies to the baby was a great feature.

Gail: I’m a mum of three and I’ve had several different baby monitors. I found this BT monitor a million times better than any I’ve used before. The screen is fantastic, a really good size which has enabled me to see my son clearly whilst he sleeps which is a great time saver to avoid running up and down the stairs numerous times.

Laura: The BT Video Baby Monitor 6000 makes my life easier as a mum because it is easy to set up, easy to use and it gives me peace of mind being able to watch my daughter sleep via the parent monitor. I love that it has a mini USB charging port for both the parent unit and camera so if I forget to pack/lose the charger I can easily replace it.

Would you choose this product to win?

Elizabeth: This is an invaluable piece of kit and whilst I recognise that it is quite expensive in comparison to other monitors available to parents, I believe this is the best. The monitor is large and available in night vision, meaning I can keep a close eye on my baby whilst she sleeps. I wish I had bought this product sooner as it would have saved many a restless evening!

Tana: The design and style of it is very appealing. Such a small, sleek model which is unoffensive to the baby. Other monitors we have had they want to grab it or throw things at it. This seems to fit in well with other gadgets. I like the comfort of the monitor size and shape. Picture and sound are clear.

Charlotte: This is a great video monitor and I really love the look of it and how easy it was to use. I do think the video monitor offers good value for money but I would prefer a monitor that also comes with a mat to check for movement as I think it gives an extra level of reassurance particularly during the first few months.

What changes would you make to this product?

Elizabeth: It is hard to fault this product as it provides so many options I didn’t think possible for a monitor. If I had to change one thing I would maybe provide a suction cup to the bottom of the camera as I have frequently found my baby has knocked it off or it has fallen off during the night.

Zara: The only thing I would change is the battery life of the monitor. It doesn't last very long so you have to charge it every day but it wouldn't put me off the product. I really like this baby monitor it is great and you get a lot of reassurance that your child is safe while asleep in bed.

Charlie: I think the quality of the picture could be improved. There isn't much more I would change about this product as overall it is very fit for purpose and easy to use. The size of the screen is definitely a good factor.
