Find solace in the knowledge your bubba is sleeping safely, then when he starts to crawl, place the contact sensors near doorways, windows or cabinets to be alerted when they’ve been opened by little fingers. Extras include a night-light, temperature sensor and two-way communication.
2 BABYHOOD GROW WITH ME CLASSIC 6 IN 1 COT, $1299, WWW.BABYHOOD.COM.AU
A bed is one of the most expensive outlays for new parents – and forward planning can save you a lot of money.
