The Babysense 5s has been discontinued and replaced by the new Babysense 7. We are currently working on a review of the new version and will also be linking to the Babysense 7 in this review.
The Babysense 5s is the winner of our Top Pick Award for Simplicity and ease of use. It is an excellent, high quality, under the mattress movement monitor, with an easy to use one-button interface. Easy setup and a single button to set it and forget it make this monitor stand out from the rest. Babysense eschews bonus features and focuses on simple, reliable function. We love that all of the wires are hidden under the mattress, and the nursery unit is mounted to the exterior of the crib within easy reach when putting baby down for a rest or picking up for a midnight feeding. If you want basic, no-frills function, this is the monitor for you.
