Best Long-Range Monitor: Graco Secure Coverage Digital

More than 2,000 feet of coverage means you’ll never miss a beat because of bad reception. “Baby would sleep upstairs while my husband and I would watch movies together in the basement,” says Jennie V., “we never had to worry about losing the connection because of the distance. It was so nice to have the freedom to move around the house at night and still keep an eye on baby.” $45, GracoBaby.com

Best Budget Buy: Sony 900MHz Baby Call Nursery Monitor

Moms agree: You don’t need to spend a fortune on a monitor to be sure baby’s safe. “I'm really pleased especially since I initially purchased a sensor pad monitor for a lot of money,” admits Cait W., “and for the life of me I couldn’t figure out how to work the darn thing. So, we returned it and tried this one instead. Love the simplicity of it.” $34, Diapers.com

Most Techie: Summer Infant BabyTouch 2 Digital Video Monitor

This baby monitor is so high-tech it’s almost like the CIA invented it (seriously!). There’s motion-tracking technology, high-res imaging, two-way communication (like a walkie-talkie with baby!) and multilevel zoom. “You can even get a reading on the room’s temperature with this monitor! We love it,” says Eva L. $240, BabiesRUs.com
