Every new mum knows that once you have a bub, it’s hard to imagine life without them. Sometimes it can be hard to imagine even a second without them, especially in those early newborn days. Even a little naptime can seem like an eternity.
The Oricom Secure870WH Touchscreen Monitor is everything you need for total peace of mind while they are sleeping, helping you keep an eye on bub, and more.
Watch every move your tiny tot makes through a motorised pan-tilt camera. Controlled with a high-quality 3.5” touchscreen, you can scan every corner of the nursery and even go in closer with a 3 x digital zoom. The crisp colour display also switches to night vision when the lights go out. Stealthy!
Available online from Baby Bunting ($359).

But this high-tech monitor does more than just watch. If your wrigglepot needs a little help settling, it also features a starry night light show, adjustable nightlight, a stack of your favourite lullabies and other soothing sounds like white noise and a nature track. And if you’re worried whether your little one is too hot or too cold, just check the in-room temperature on display.
Loved by our Mum’s Grapevine mums, it’s just what you need to help you both rest easy – no more waking bub up as you check in on them at 2am ‘just in case’. If your sleepy bear does stir, you can soothe them with some sweet words from the comfort of your own bed with the parent talkback function. Or if you’d rather turn the sound down so you don’t hear every murmur, there’s a handy mute function with a cry alarm.
To make life even easier, you can also buy extra cameras to use with the same parent unit – great if your bub sleeps in different rooms day and night or for when baby number two comes along.
The Oricom Secure870WH Touchscreen Monitor is available from Baby Bunting ($249).
We gave three Mum’s Grapevine members an Oricom Secure870 video baby monitor to try for two weeks, and this is what they said.
Sammi Hall and 6 week old Finn
“A first-time parent’s best friend.”
“I found the picture quality both day and night to be exceptional. It has a great range of sounds from lullabies to nature sounds and white noise, which I found really helpful for resettling Finn. Options to mute the sound (with a cry alarm) and turn off the video screen are also great to just check in. I would happily recommend this for any parent’s piece of mind and sanity!”
Alexandra Guy and 5-month-old Brooklyn
“It’s a big YES from me.”
“Yes, it’s so easy to use. Yes, the picture quality is incredible (even in a dark room). Yes, it eased my first-time-anxious-mum mind. Yes, I love it. And, yes, you’ll love it too.”
Nicky Haigh and 2-month old Zahli
“A gentle baby soother”
“I’ve fallen in love with the starry light show as much as my baby! Those few minutes after I leave the nursery tend to be Zahli’s fussiest time. It’s super easy to just pop on the light show as a soothing distraction until sleep takes over.”
