    Just wanted to let you know that they have added a vibration setting to the rock and play sleeper now. However, when you turn it on the easy fold buttons vibrate like crazy. We had to put painters tape over ours. I saw this product on so many lists of must-haves for baby, that I was super excited to receive one at our shower. Unfortunately, it’s one of our least used items…

    This is by far the best, very best product out there! I could not imagine my days as a first time mom without this! In fact, we are expecting our second child in May and we are more than likely going to be purchasing another if it’s not gifted to us! We will have two for the living areas and one for full-time sleeping at night. Our first son slept full-time in this for the first four months of his life!! If you don’t have one, haven’t registered for one, go. get. one. now!!

    We could not have lived without the rock n play. It was a favorite of ours and I included it on my real moms Wednesday post. Mila slept in her RNP until 5 months when we transitioned to the crib. It was perfect when she was in our room to just rock her a bit for some extra comfort and was still great when she moved into her own room at 4 weeks.

    We have LOVED the Rock n’ Play with our first child! She has reflux, so the RNP has been a lifesaver! They do have a model now that vibrates, but our daughter doesn’t seem to care for the vibration. She is almost 4 months and I’m wondering if you had a difficult time transitioning your child to the crib? I’m curious if going from an elevated surface to a flat surface and from a snug space to a more open space will be challenging?

      Kali: Our little one slept in the RNP exclusively until about 4 months (and we only stopped then because she began to try to turn over in it) but transitioned to sleeping in her crib without a problem….hope your little one does the same!!

    The rock n play has been a life saver for the first 2 months of my sons life! He loves the vibration, and it’s so nice to have him next to us whereever we are in the house. I am a bit nervous for his crib transition since he doesn’t like to be swaddled and this keeps him nice and snug, but for now he is sleeping great in it!

    I LOVE our Rock n’ Play! Our baby slept in it for the first two months and now he’s in his crib, but sometimes he hangs out by me in it which is also nice. The one thing I didn’t love about it was that it was a little hard to transition out of. Because of the incline, my little guy had a hard time sleeping in a regular crib for a while. The suggestion I give to my friends is to have their babies take a nap a day on something flat so that they can sleep in both places. Overall we LOVED it though. Our apartment is really small and it was perfect to have our baby next to our bed when we first brought him home.

    All of my friends swear by the rock and play and I just got one for my little one however upon further research I did come across an article by a doctor that says while this product is good for occasional sleep it does not meet standards for overnight sleep, both in regards to SIDS and sleep training. I fully intend to use the rock and play for naps and play time but will use a co-sleeper or bassinet for overnight. Thought I would share as all of my friends said the same, their little ones slept in it for the first 4 months…..

      I’m glad you commented on this, as it is a frequent concern of mine as well. I hear SO MANY parents saying they depend on it for night-time sleep – but it absolutely does not meet safe sleep standards! I love our Rock ‘n’ Play, but we use it for naps and hanging out during the day. The only times we ever used it at night were when our baby was sick and very congested and needed to be inclined and when we were moving and had to pack up his bassinet before our final night.

      I know that most babies will be perfectly fine, but I worry when people actively promote it as a great place for your baby to sleep during the night.

  9. […] 1. Fisher-Price Rock n’ Play Sleeper or similar (+/- $60, use: up to 25 pounds or until your baby can roll over/sit up) :  Before we dive into this one, a disclaimer, you may want to ask your Pediatrician about this as a bassinet before relying solely on it for nighttime sleep.  We’ve seen a few articles and forums suggesting this is not the best newborn sleep option because it doesn’t meet all of the guidelines listed above.  We did however use this at certain points for nighttime sleep for both our daughters and our Pediatrician had no issue with us doing so – but always ask your own doctor.  From a real moms perspective, my advice would be to use this for as little of time as possible.  The RNP is at an incline which is great for babies with any sort of reflux but this incline can make the transition to a firm, flat sleeping surface an issue down the road.  Margaux had mild reflux and slept in the RNP for about 2 weeks before we transitioned over to the Co-Sleeper Mini.  Bottom line here is, you have to do what is best for you and your baby based on your decisions and the advice of your Pediatrician.  The RNP folds flat very easily and is lightweight, making it super portable from room to room or house to house.  See our editor Mallory’s, glowing review, here.

    I need some help 🙂 We are also using the rock n play for our son who is 5.5 months. He is also 21 pounds and is growing out of the rock n play. The problem is that we have tried the crib a couple times and he HATES it. I’ve tried inclining the crib mattress, putting a rolled towel under the sheet to mimic the rock n play and he still screams. Does anyone have any tips for successfully transitioning their child from rock n play to crib? Thank you!!!

    My son was born premature and like all premature babies he had acid reflux. The first week when he came home he I had put him swaddled in his bassinet on his back as I was instructed to do then I got ready for bed. while I was getting ready for bed, the acid reflux acted up and he nearly choked to death. If I hadn’t been awake, I would have woke up to a dead baby. we saw the Doctor about it, and they told us it was acid relux and that it wasn’t uncommon for premies to have it. I didn’t know what to do because in the NICU the babies slept inclined so it never happened there. SO I slept sitting up on the couch, (Well sort of) with him against my chest sleeping. I knew I wasn’t ever getting any real sleep again. Then a miracle happened, I was talking to my husbands cousin about it and learned that her baby also had acid reflux and she recommended the rock and play sleeper. I was right on it and I never looked back. It saved my babies life. I read negative reviews about it, but I have never had a problem with it. It was the life saver I needed when faced with a grim situation.

    By seeing this product, I am convinced that it would be light weight & can be stored in little space. The most important thing about the product, the insert fabric, which is removable so one can wash. This will maintain hygiene to the baby.

    It is really delighted the product saved life of a newborn. Indeed, I haven’t encountered such review for the product which was narrated by Jakeline.
