baby monitors

we have had a horrible experience with our baby monitors, as i have mentioned several times before.  i have even called the company's customer service and asked about our wireless signal running through our house.  the lady was nice and said that the monitors couldn't be anywhere near a routing device, but they're not!  i don't know what the deal is, but i have read reviews that the summer infant brand doesn't interfere with wireless signals.  i'm not 100% sure that the wireless is what our problem is, but we can't sleep with the noise that our monitor makes, and when i turn it down too low, we can't hear peanut when she cries.  it may just be our house, or where our house is located.  i haven't tried taking them to another house, but i will before i try to sell them on ebay.  my fantastic hubby bought us these...
is that not the coolest thing?!  you can add up to 3 additional cameras for your other children's bedrooms, or playrooms, and see them all from the same monitor.  it's supposed to be slim like a cell phone in your pocket.  AND you can talk back to your child in their room, kind of like a walkie-talkie.  i'm so excited about them that i can barely stand it.  =)  i reaaaaaally PRAY that they work for us!  they're called summer infant sleek & secure handheld color video monitors, and they were shipped out to us this morning.  woot woot!

COOL! Never seen one of these, but we do have a Summer Infant video monitor and it is in the same room with our wireless router and I love my monitor - it is so quiet and I can hear her breathe if I turn it up!

This new monitor looks awesome! I've never had a really nice one like that before. You'll have to let us know how this new one works!
