You have probably seen our babies in our Rock ‘n Play Sleeper all over Instagram, Facebook and the blog. We’ve had this SAME rock-n-play since our first was born, and let me tell you, it is by far the BEST baby product we’ve ever purchased. I have been meaning to write this post for some time now because I’m a little obsessed with this thing. Everytime I hear of a friend or family member that becomes pregnant I tell them to go get one of these things. We have had the top of the line cribs, expensive co-sleepers and nap/day beds for babies – we have tried it all, but none of them have compared to this. We purchased the more expensive Arms Reach Co-sleeper when Lennon was born but got rid of it a few weeks later because he refused to sleep in it.
This same rock-n-play has lasted us through THREE babies. This is how our babies napped and slept at night. This is how I am able to take a shower in the mornings, give the girls a bath, take the kids outside, put on makeup, make dinner….the list goes on and on.
Our rock-n-play is old now but I have not had the heart to part ways with it and get a new one because of its sentimental value. I know I won’t need it forever, but I will cross that bridge when I get there.
My first-born napped in this thing until she was almost three years old. I have the photos to prove it.
Excuse the grainy iPhone 4 camera pictures.
And now our littlest one is enjoying sleeping in this same one.
I think when we purchased ours we paid about $65 or so, but it has been the best dang $65 we have ever spent on a baby product. Now they are under $50 on Amazon here >> Rock ‘n Play Sleeper.
If you are expecting, know someone who is expecting, has a baby that doesn’t sleep well, a baby with reflux issues or even a toddler who can’t fall asleep then you NEED this! Just trust me when I say that you won’t be disappointed. I am not sure if it’s the way the sleeper is elevated or what but it just works for them.
