I was recently on the market for a baby monitor and was extremely shocked at the products currently in the market. Most of them are cheap looking, poorly made and stupidly over priced with no real value.
Then I came across the Foscam, which acts as more of a security camera, but provides the same functions as a high tech baby monitor for a fraction of the cost.

- 67 degrees viewing angle

Then I came across the Diaper Dude - a diaper bag designed specifically for men which can then be used as a regular office / casual bag when the kid is no longer in diapers. Absolutely brilliant.
Great site helping new or experienced fathers with useful information and products. Straight and to the point from the best selling authors of ‘Being a Great Dad for Dummies’ and ‘Call Me Dad’.
