Florida Mom Freaked Out By Toddler’s Silhouette In Baby Monitor… Because She Was Right Next To Her

Something isn't adding up.

There are many reasons to get a high tech-baby monitor, and also a few reasons to avoid it. Some parents find that he super sensitive baby monitors, the kind with videos and pads that track breathing rates, actually caused them more anxiety than otherwise, as the tech was so sensitive that it could make them think that problems existed where there were none, or alerted them every time their child sighed in their sleep. Experts say that unless your baby has ongoing health issues, you can probably skip the intense monitoring. And that’s before we get into the known issue of monitor hacking.

But for some anxious parents, having a camera on their child gives them peace of mind. That is, until it doesn’t, as in this video.


In the video, a mom is spooked when she happens to glance down at her baby monitor and see the silhouette of her toddler sitting up in her bed. The issue wasn’t that the kid was awake, it’s that mom already knew she was, because she was sitting right next to her!

So what was this image, really? Tough to tell. Even a closely examined screenshot reveals little as it’s a video of a video. It certainly does look like a little kid sitting up in bed. But maybe it’s a stuffed animal or a sweater, as the bed does seem covered in odds and ends.

Viewers suggested that it might also be an old image. One explained that her camera often pulled up the last image viewed when she first turned it on.

Another has a more paranormal explanation, saying that she has captured images of children that were lost to her before birth. As the woman in this video lost a child before, she is interested in exploring this possibility.
