We went on six international family vacations between our little boy being born and turning one year old.

As new parents, we learnt a lot about the ba gadgets you need, and the baby gadgets you should leave at home when travelling – after all, it’s hard to not feel as though you need to bring everything, just in case!

One thing that has firmly stayed on our packing list is a travel-suitable baby monitor.

When travelling we try when possible to get a separate room for the baby to sleep in so he can keep a normal routine and we can enjoy each other’s company without fear of waking him.

While sleeping in this new environment we like to watch him to ensure that he’s safe, calm and comfortable and a baby monitor allows us to do just that.

1. Nanit Pro Smart Baby Monitor

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: WiFi & Bluetooth

The Nanit Pro is one of the most well-known, and most expensive baby monitors on this list.

The monitor is compatible with Apple HomeKit, Google Assistant, IFTTT, and Alexa and also works with Nest Cam IQ Indoor and Outdoor cameras and the Netatmo Welcome Home security system.

This monitor is a fantastic choice for newborns and small babies, however, the price and features may be overkill for parents with babies over the age of 6+ months.

2. HelloBaby HB65

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: 2.4GHz

HelloBaby HB6550 is a great value baby monitor and boasts a number of features often seen in more expensive monitors, albeit without the high price tag.

This baby monitor uses 2.4GHz wireless technology to connect to the camera which makes it a great choice for those looking to stay away from Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.

Meanwhile, the monitor screen is 5″ and features a temperature display. The camera itself can both pan and tilt for the best viewing position, and has an infrared LED so you can see your baby despite the room being dark.

3. Angelcare AC527

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: 2.4GHz

The Angelcare AC527 includes both the parent unit monitor, the high-definition camera and a movement plate.

The movement plate is a fantastic piece of equipment for anxious parents (like us!) and sounds if there is no movement after 20 seconds.

That being said this extra piece of equipment does bump the overall price of this monitor up significantly and makes it one of the most pricy baby monitors on this list.

4. VTech VM819

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: 2.4GHz channel with FHSS technology

The VTech VM819 camera comes with a built-in temperature sensor which allows you to monitor the room temperature and adjust your baby’s layers accordingly.

Meanwhile, the baby monitor is a 5″ colour touchscreen display that offers two-way communication between you and your baby.

This monitor has no Wi-Fi or app pairing and instead, the signal is transmitted using a secured internal 2.4GHz channel with FHSS technology, so you can rest assured that you’re the only one who can hear and see your baby.

5. Nannio Hero3

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: 2.4GHz channel with FHSS technology

The Nannio Hero3 is one of the most budget-friendly baby monitors on this list and comes in four different pastel colours.

Sadly what lets this monitor down is the screen which is relatively small (3.5″). Given this, the Nannio Hero3 may only be suitable for parents with slightly older babies and children who are still looking for peace of mind.

Meanwhile, both video and audio are transmitted using a secure 2.4GHz channel with FHSS technology as opposed to Wi-Fi or Bluetooth which ensures privacy for you and your baby.

6. Owlet Cam Smart

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: AES 128-bit encryption & TLS connection to WiFi

The Owlet Cam Smart is one of, if not the best baby monitor currently on the market.

The camera offers a wide-angle view, a 4x pinch-to-zoom and a room temperature sensor for complete visibility.

Meanwhile, you can use the background audio to listen to your baby while using your phone for other tasks and speak to your baby using the two-way talk feature anytime, anywhere.

This baby monitor can also be upgraded to include the Owlet Dream Sock which allows you to check your baby’s movement, heart rate and oxygen levels.

We love this baby monitor since it offers fantastic additional features and incredible video quality at an affordable price.

The battery lasts up to 30 hours in regular usage scenarios or 12 in continuous monitoring mode. Meanwhile, infrared night vision makes it easy to check on your baby in low-light conditions.

9. BabySense V43 Split Screen

  • White Noise: Yes

The BabySense V43 is a great option for parents with more than one child since you can split the 5″ LCD monitor screen in two to watch both children from one central location.

The baby unit has built-in infrared night vision which allows you to check your baby, even if they are in a dark room.

Alongside this there’s also a room temperature display which sounds an alarm on the connected monitor should the baby’s room temperature be too high or low.

This baby monitor is incredibly easy to set up and has a transmission range can be up to 1000ft (in an open area).

The baby camera itself provides a clear video with 720p and pans 330° to see corner-to-corner and tilts 110° to allow you to see floor to ceiling.

Meanwhile, the 30-hour battery life (monitoring in regular usage scenarios) means that you don’t have to worry about constantly charging the monitor.

This baby monitor has won multiple awards and has rave reviews from many parents including ourselves.

11. Infant Optics DXR-8 Pro

This baby monitor has an active noise reduction feature which filters out background noise (such as fans, air purifiers, humidifiers, air conditioners, static and more) which allows you to hear your baby more clearly.

The camera has a 6x optical zoom lens included, with an interchangeable wide-angle lens available separately.

Meanwhile, the 1000mW monitor speaker provides loud and clear sound quality.

12. Miku Pro Smart Baby Monitor

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: Secure WiFi

The Miku Pro is one of the most expensive baby video monitors on this list. However, it comes with a whole host of extra features which may make it a worthwhile investment for some parents.

This baby monitor allows you to not only monitor your baby’s movements, but also their breathing and sleep all without wires, wearables, batteries, or special clothing touching them for ultimate flexibility.

Instead, everything is done through the monitor with SensorFusion technology and broadcast to the Miku app on your smartphone to see their breathing rate, in real-time, right on the screen.

While this baby monitor does use WiFi, the security is second to none with a crypto chip inside the monitor which has been paired with advanced 256-bit encryption and 2-step authentication.

13. VTech DM221 Audio Baby Monitor

This monitor has a 1,000ft range and a talk-back intercom that allows you to speak to your child directly.

Meanwhile, the vibrating sound alert ensures that you never miss a moment.

The parent unit runs on a rechargeable Ni-MH battery or AC power with the rechargeable battery lasting for up to 16 hours in total.

14. Lollipop Baby Monitor

Checking in on your baby with the Lollipop baby monitor on a tablet or smartphone is possible from anywhere in the world.

While the border inside the camera allows you to track the movements inside your baby’s crib. That way if anything happens outside the border, for instance, if the baby’s leg gets stuck, you’ll be notified.

15. Moonybaby Split 50 Baby Monitor

  • White Noise: Yes
  • Two-Way Audio: Yes
  • Connection: Wireless FHSS transmission (no Wifi)

The MoonyBaby Split 50 baby monitor is a great choice if you have two children in different rooms. As it comes with two cameras and a split-screen monitor that allows you to see both children easily.

The 5” Large screen features a high-resolution display, wide-angle lens camera, auto night vision, and 2X digital zoom functions which allow you to see your child clearly, day or night.
