While flipping through my Parenting magazine I found this:
Fisher Price Newborn Rock ‘n Play Sleeper
What the heck? They couldn’t have come up with this AMAZING technology 4 years ago? When I had a newborn that didn’t sleep at all for about 6 month, and didn’t sleep through the night until a year. *Now* we know some of it must have been related to his Autism and sensory “issues.”
No, my poor little guy had to lay flat because “you should never prop them in their bassinet or crib!” Or he had to sleep in his hard car seat,
in his hard swing, or on our bedroom floor in that bouncy seat thing.
Those were our only options 4 years ago for upright sleeping. He slept in his swing for 2 months straight. One of the most bizarre baby videos we have is of us going in his room after he wakes up to get him out of a swing. Not a crib, a swing.
AND, we had to shove that huge swing into our car, and cart all 40 pounds of it everywhere we went. On overnight trips, weekend visits, and vacations. This newfangled contraption is lightweight AND portable! Go figure!
