ROCHESTER, NY — A New York hospital is letting parents use cameras to watch their babies in the NICU.

The camera system at Golisano Children's Hospital is called Angeleye.

The monitors are for parents whose newborns need to stay at the hospital for more than a couple days.

A nurse can position one of the 20 cameras to focus on a specific child.

Then, parents can log in to view their newborn on a computer or app.

The hospital says NICU babies have gotten more than 14,000 views.
