We got an audio monitor at our baby shower (the one we registered for) a few weeks ago. DH had a work baby shower, and everyone pitched in and got us a really nice video monitor. We could certainly return the audio monitor and keep the video. Or, return the video and get our breast pump or something else more expensive. Are there any real advantages to video over audio (obviously you can SEE the baby), but I feel like there's not much that you would see on the monitor but not hear on an audio that would make you check on LO. I mean, if there's any question, you're going to check anyways, right?
