Baby monitors

From a colleague's clinic note:   We also talked about the baby monitor that is in her room. Her mother uses it to keep tabs on her during the night and responds to her when she has difficulty sleeping.  I would encourage the family to get rid of the baby monitor and throw it away.  In my clinical experience as a neurologist, I have never seen a baby monitor to be helpful for any of my patients' medical problems Typically, the baby monitor only causes a sleep disturbance in the parents because they are so busy listening to their child that they have a hard time sleeping.
