CO sensor accuracy, placement, risks.

I'm moving for the first time into a house with gas (stove and heat) and I'm completely terrified that my two small children are going to die of CO poisoning. Please help me understand sensors, risks, what to look for and such to help alleviate my paranoia.

So I read this
thread and it only increased my fears. I bought this
sensor, but how do I know if it works? I've heard that some of them aren't very reliable. How do I assess the numbers? What do I do if the numbers go up? Do I need more than one sensor in different rooms? Does it matter if I put it high or low on the wall? If I seem paranoid, it's because I am. Not so much for myself, but I've got two tiny children who are way more vulnerable than I am. Tell me everything you know about CO sensors, risks, etcetera!
