    I want to know how I can detect the movement a baby makes when sleeping. For example, I want to know if the baby is making any movements when inside the crib or just staying still. So, to detect this what kind of sensor can I use? I really need some help.

    a webcam with some kind of motion detection software to "film" or take snapshots when movement is detected..... an application such as Dorgem is free to use and works great with just about any webcam.....

    The type of sensor KMoffett suggested is what you need, but if you describe what you what to do with the project it would help us help you further. Do you want an alarm to go off in another room, do you want to visually monitor the movement, do you want to begin playing audio of the baby? In other words, what are your intentions after knowing that you baby is moving?
