Angel care monitor

We just got an angel care for a gift but I am wondering how necessary it is. We have a nice camera monitor for when she is napping and since DH is back at work already, I usually sleep in the nursery at night so we don't wake him up.

  • It helped me to sleep better with my first.  She used to wake up choking all the time, and I worried that she might choke at night and I would sleep through it.  I don't know whether I'll use it again this time around.

  • My friend's 4 month old stopped breathing, and this monitor caught it.  They were able to perform CPR until paramedics arrived.  So it does work, but she says there are a TON of false alarms that make you go crazy.  So it just depends on
