Describe Yourself: Parent of Two or More Children
My newest son has a very bad case of reflux. Out of all of my children, (who had reflux) this one has it the worst. In the craddle, he would often cough and start to choke on his spit up. A friend lent us her Rock and Play Sleeper and it helped a ton! It put him on an incline with out sticking him in the bouncy seat or swing.
I love that it rocks. That feature is perfect in the middle of the night after feedings when he isn't quite asleep. I can rock him with one hand on the rocker and the rest of me comfortably in bed. ;)
I recently moved my son back into his craddle, in order to give the product back to my friend who lent it to us. He went from sleeping in 5 hr stretches, to only sleeping in 1.5 hr stretches. I couldn't figure out why, until another person suggested I try this product (she didn't know we already had it). I had a "doh" moment and realized that his sleeping had gone down hill since I moved him back into his craddle. I put him back into the sleep and play rocker last night and he slept for a 5 hr stretch!
I also like that the cover comes off and is washable! With a baby who spits up all.of.the.time. this is perfect!
