ours broke when she was almost 3. I was still using it then because she like to play in her room alone and that way we could still hear her.

At 3 and 1.5 we still need one. I like having it since they still wake up in the night sometimes. Or they end up in our room if we don't get to them first.

I only used mine a time or two. Like if I was going to do yardwork while she was napping

Moniters aren't a necessity. It's safe to never use one ever. It's all about your preference

My son is 16 months and he wakes up at night, he will be awake for 1-3 hours. He never gets upset, he just talks and laughs. It's impossible for me to sleep through that so I shut the sound off on the monitor. Our room is right next to him so I know if he started crying or something I'd hear him even without the monitor.

I just wondered if that was bad or something.
