A babysitter has shared her ‘horror’ after hearing ‘creepy singing’ coming from a baby monitor after putting children to bed – and it turns out the parents forgot to pre-warn her about it

A babysitter got the fright of her life after hearing ‘creepy singing’ coming from a baby monitor after putting the children to bed. Recalling the ‘traumatic’ event, she explained how she was watching over two children from her neighbourhood while their parents enjoyed a child-free night out.

Everything was going smoothly until she checked on them via the baby monitor after putting them to bed for the night. She said on Reddit: “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 kid’s 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.”

Worried for their safety, she checked on each of the children – hoping she was just hearing things. She added: “Went up to their rooms and checked on them both. Apparently, the younger one (three-year-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 **** myself when I heard it through the monitor.”

  • ‘Entitled mum orders I wake her son up before school run – I taught her a lesson’
  • ‘I caught my mum sleeping with my husband – I can’t erase the image from my mind’
  • While most users couldn’t help but laugh at her story, others shared how they would have responded in that situation. One user said: “That’s incredibly adorable but completely terrifying to live through.” Another user added: “I would be terrible protecting little kids from demons etc. Had I heard that singing, I never would have gone up there.”

    A third user said: “I babysat for a couple who also had the video feed monitors, I looked at them the least possible amount I could without feeling irresponsible because I have a bad fear of everything at night.”
