The danger: The cord attached to the baby monitor's sensor pad is placed under the crib mattress, which poses a strangulation risk if the child pulls the cord into the crib and it becomes wrapped around the neck. There have been reports of two infant cord strangulation deaths. In addition, there have been two reports of infants who became entangled in cords of Angelcare baby monitor models, which did not result in fatalities.
