Entry 51 and 52 of Annex XVII to REACH - Phthalates in toys and childcare articles

Does a baby monitor fall under the definition of childcare article in the context of entries 51-52 of Annex XVII to REACH?

A childcare article is defined by entries 51 (4) and 52(4) as "any product intended to facilitate sleep, relaxation, hygiene, the feeding of children or sucking on the part of children" (see Q&A 983). A baby monitor does not facilitate the sleep or relaxation of the baby, it allows parents to be alerted when the baby is crying or making other noise. Therefore baby monitors fall outside the scope of entries 51-52 of Annex XVII.
