21 People Talk About The Time They Heard Something Creepy Through Their Baby Monitor

So I basically learned that you shouldn’t get a baby monitor because people will screw with you and it will only end up with you fearing for your baby’s life and your mental health. Read more on this Reddit thread.


Okay, in early 1990, I worked for a volunteer-based security group. We didn’t have a radio license for real walkie-talkies yet, so we had a set of headsets that worked off some common household frequencies. These frequencies were used for child’s walkie-talkies, cheap cordless phones, drive-thru speakers, baby monitors, and such.

During an outdoor distance test, I picked up some lady’s cordless phone where she talked about gross medical stuff, but she couldn’t hear us to get her to stop.

So while testing a battery replacement, I picked up a two-way baby monitor in a nearby apartment. There was a baby fussing and the sound of some woman doing dishes. “I’ll be right there, hon…” the woman said.

On a whim, I pushed “TALK” on my headset, and said with a loud, demonic voice, “FEED. ME!”

Then I heard the shattering of dishes.

That was hilarious when I was 21… but after reading this, I feel bad. :(

Sorry, lady stranger.

2. So, so, so eerie

I used to babysit two kids, and they each had a video monitor that picked up sound. I put them to bed and was sitting downstairs doing homework, and I thought they were both asleep because it had been like a half hour since I had put them in bed, and neither kid was shifting around anymore. It was silent except for their breathing through the monitors. It was pitch black outside and the parents wouldn’t be home for another couple of hours.

All of a sudden I heard a little kids voice singing. I couldn’t tell what the voice was saying, but it sounded really creepy. I looked at the monitors, and neither kid had moved.

Went up to their rooms and checked on them both. Apparently the younger one (3 years old) would sing to himself when he couldn’t sleep, and his mom didn’t tell me that. He was laying perfectly still singing softly, and I nearly shit myself when I heard it through the monitor.
