Attention all parents-to-be: IKEA has a new baby monitor that you're definitely going to want to check out. The Undvika monitor is both super portable and super affordable, costing just $29.99. It's also powered by rechargeable batteries, so the product is sustainably minded!


As with all monitors, there's a parent unit and a baby unit. With the Undvika monitor, the parent unit is a small, lightweight disc that can easily fit in your pocket. You can also hang it from a hook (or your belt) with the attached rubber loop.

Additionally, the Undvika monitor is a two-way radio with a microphone so you can soothe your little one with your voice. And there are different sensitivity and volume settings to best suit your home environment. For a budget-friendly monitor, we have to admit we're impressed.

Perhaps best of all, the Undvika monitor has a "search" button on the baby unit that'll help you find the parent unit if you've misplaced it. Oh, and there's no major assembly required, unlike most IKEA furniture. Big points from us all around!
