|Fisher Price Newborn Rock and Play Sleeper|
When we actually brought Faith home from the hospital, I wanted her to sleep near me (new parent nerves), so I put the sleeper next to my side of the bed. It was great because I could reach out and rock it without having to sit up.

Then Faith started having problems with reflux. A lot of babies have reflux issues, mostly because their digestive systems aren't fully mature at birth. One of the recommendations for babies with reflux is to have them sleep at an upright angle instead of flat. The sleeper has an incline, so it was perfect!
We went through a tough couple months with Faith with her reflux and milk protein allergy, so during that time, I didn't want to mess with her sleep at all. She slept really well in the sleeper and I often said to my husband: "I wish they made a toddler size of this thing!"
|Faith also liked just hanging out in it|

I fully intend on using this sleeper with future babies, but maybe I won't keep them in there quite as long as we did with Faith :)
