Having my third baby four years apart from my middle child has made me realize just how fast new products enter the baby market. Just when you think you could purchase anything that you could possibly ever need, another product emerges that makes the life of a parent just that much easier. That is definitely the case with the new Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper.
With my oldest two boys I was happy to simply have a bouncer with which to carry around from room to room so they had a place to be entertained or soothed but sit upright so they could be more involved in their surroundings. Now I’d say to any new mom to ditch the bouncer with its limitations and instead turn to the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper. Doesn’t it just look modern and cool?
This rocker features three uses within a single product. It has a three reclining positions with a flat pad and raised borders for a safer and more secure feeling for napping. It also has two dangling toys and two musical options with lights on an adjustable arm. It even grows with your baby as a toddler rocker that can hold up to 40 pounds!
When the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper arrived it really was perfect timing. If Wesley wasn’t asleep during mealtimes we struggled. We no longer have our old bouncer and his baby swing was no longer working because he didn’t want to be in a different area of the house where he couldn’t see us. Obviously we couldn’t haul our large swing around where ever we went but we certainly could with the rocker napper!
Wes had no probably falling asleep in a semi upright position and it was simple to move him down to a flat position with a lever in back without disturbing him, one of my very favorite features.
The pad is soft and the sides create such a cozy environment with which to snooze and the gentle vibrations lulled him to sleep. Lately though he uses it more for play than for napping. He loves the lights, music and toys!
Since he is teething, Wes loves to chew on his dangling pals including the mirrored sun with crinkly sounds and the snail which has a rattle. Hitting them is also entertaining and as he kicks he will gently rock the seat and make his pals which are attached with velcro move back and forth. Fun times, fun times!
Things to Know Before Purchase:
- While this rocker does have a gentle rocking motion, it isn’t a true rocker. It does not move as freely as a traditional rocking chair and it isn’t easy to create this motion if you move it yourself. Instead it allows for soft movement created by your baby and helps with stability.
- There are only two songs available, a lullaby which will play continuously and a upbeat tune which is sensitive to movement. If your baby doesn’t move in the seat, the music doesn’t play for very long. I kept thinking the music was turning off or the batteries were dead but that wasn’t the case. I love the sound of the music.
- It takes batteries for both the vibrations and the lights which do not come with the product. I haven’t noticed it running out of batteries at a fast rate but be prepared with 3 AAA batteries and 1 C battery.
- The pad is soft but is cream colored and the material does seem to collect hair easily. Since I’m losing my hair like crazy after having a baby, I’m always picking a hair or two of my own out of it. Not a big deal for me but something to keep in mind if you have pets.
The Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper has a suggest retail price of $99.99 and is available at Buy Buy Baby and currently at a great price on Amazon with free shipping! You can also find it at select baby retailers.
