When it comes to purchasing baby gear, there are 3 things I take into consideration: price (is it worth it?), longevity (how much use will we get out of it?) and features. If a product has all the right features but will only hold a baby until s/he reaches 15 pounds, it won’t last long enough to make it worth purchasing. With that being said, Sophia loooves to be held and swayed and rocked to sleep. I, of course, do not mind her being super snuggly, especially since I couldn’t have her all to myself for the first 11 days of her life, but sometimes I need to get things done. Like, eat. Or take care of Adam and Lucas. One item that has been so amazing to have in the house is the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper by Tiny Love. It has all the right features, grows with baby so Sophia can enjoy it for 6+ months, and doesn’t cost an arm and a leg. It’s definitely a winner in my book.
Great for the newborn stage and up, the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper cradles my sleeping baby in a super soft, plush fabric and calms her with a soothing vibration that is felt throughout the seat.
This rocker napper offers 3 reclining positions (hence the 3-in-1) and because Sophia is on the apnea monitor, we have only tried the “sleep” position. Because Sophia doesn’t have great head control yet, to avoid false monitor alarms, position is key. Sophia must sleep flat on her back to prevent her chin from resting on her neck and blocking her airway. We have several items that we haven’t been able to put to good use yet because they are at such an upward recline and Sophia can’t handle that quite yet. I like having options and the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper offers just that.
The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper has a baby activated mobile that plays 9 different songs and has 2 fun, bright toys dangling from it.
I like that I can easily remove the mobile, especially while Sophia is a newborn and has no interest in the toys. When the time comes, Sophia will be able to sit in her Rocker Napper and play with the cute toys.
The Rocker Napper is at the perfect height to where I can sit on the couch and rock it with my foot. Sophia loves to be rocked, but if your baby doesn’t? No worries, the rocker can easily be turned into a stationary bed. I love that the Rocker Napper is portable and I can move it to whatever room I’m in.
Between the vibrations and the rocking, Sophia usually falls right asleep in her Rocker Napper. Once again, Tiny Love doesn’t disappoint when it comes to creating something with baby and mom in mind. With a price point of $99.99, the Rocker Napper won’t break the bank and will grow with baby so you can definitely get your money’s worth.
You can purchase the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper for $99.99. It is available in brown (like I reviewed) with a red one coming soon!
