Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper: A MUST have for newborns
When you’re preparing for the birth of a new baby the long list of "necessary" baby items is overwhelming and confusing, not to mention expensive. I’ve been asked by a few friends who are expecting their first babies, "what do I really need?" One even asked me to go with her to register, and gave me the password to her registries to add or delete items as I saw appropriate because she was so overwhelmed. There are few items on my own "must have" list, which now includes the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper.
I was sent a Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper to review and lamented the fact that I didn’t receive it 7 months earlier. Baby M had a fussy, rough beginning filled with crying, excessive spitting-up and horribly itchy, uncomfortable eczema. Turns out she had RSV (a respiratory infection), acid reflux, and a dairy intolerance. Once she was healthy, on medication and a hypoallergenic formula her truly joyful, engaging and amazing personality came though.
While M was in the throws of her discomfort we tried everything to help her get comfortable and get all of us some sleep. The swing, elevating her mattress, walking, baby-wearing, white noise, the vibrating seat and rides in the car- which she hated and screamed the entire time from when the buckle clicked until you got her out.
She needed to be elevated, but also in a safe sleep environment and the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is just that, which is why I wish I had it then. It is a comfortable feeding or play seat with a musical mobile and vibrating base. And, when baby doses off, a simple one-hand release gently lowers the seat back to a fully flat recline. The sides raise to create a cozy and secure sleeping environment.
Because the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper would have made our lives SO much easier, it is on my "must have" list. Which is lucky for my friend, since I gave her the seat I was sent to use with her baby due later this month. I did, however mention that I want it back when she’s done. Just in case we have another baby.
I also really appreciate the contemporary styling and neutral color palate, and it actually looked nice, not garish in my living room. Baby M did try out the seat, and she was fascinated by the mobile and I thought for a moment I could use it. But then she tried to climb out, and I accepted the fact that she is simply too big for it to be safe.
