Are baby monitoring anklets a good idea or just lazy parenting?

Are baby monitoring anklets a good idea or just lazy parenting?

By John Mercure. CREATED Aug 18, 2014

Ankle monitors are typically associated with criminals.

They are now being used by the latest generation of parents to monitor baby without ever stepping inside baby's bedroom.

The anklets can monitor everything from baby's heart rate and body temperature to whether baby is moving or lying in a face down sleeping position.  The anklets can even monitor humidity and noise levels in baby's crib.

Is is a good idea or one more example of helicopter parenting?
