Well this would have been awesome…
As Kali grows and we learn her little eccentricities, wants, and needs, I find products that I think to myself, “man I wish I would have known about that/or I wish that was around when I made my baby registry.”
Well, I have found one such item that would have saved me from where I currently spend most of my time, the couch. As some of you may know, my dear little girl has GERD which is a severe form of acid reflux. Because of this she has never tolerated being on her back for long periods of time, which has made sleeping in her own bed all but impossible.
From birth she has only slept on my chest. It is literally the only place she will sleep. Yes I know all the SIDS facts and what not about sleeping together with your child so please do not lecture me on it. She has survived these first 3 months, so far so good.
Now I see this lovely product from Fisher Price, that I believe, she would have slept in. It’s called the Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Play Sleeper. Essentially it’s an angled bassinet. It keeps baby at an angle instead of flat on her back. If only I had had this when Kali was born I might be able to sleep peacefully on my stomach. Now you might say, well it’s not that expensive, go getcha one! Ok I would, but I don’t really have the extra money to spend on it right now. So I guess I will have to look longingly at it from my pc screen and dream about my daughter sleeping in it instead of on me.
If you think you might want one here’s where you can find it as well as a description.
