She can't be not breathing when you go check on her and she's sucking a pacifier. The leads had been changed earlier that day so we thought it wasn't a problem with that. If she is seriously having breathing issues, we would definitely want to hear the alarm going off as many times as needed. But if it is a malfunction, well, it's just plain annoying.

Ladies, it sounds like an oven timer going off but MUCH louder.
Guys, think an annoying backup alarm and you've got the idea.

I changed both leads (2 sticky pads stuck to her chest with a snap that connects the wires going to the machine) yesterday morning and thankfully, we had a monitor alarm free day!
