I am pregnant with my second child. I never bought a bassinet for our first & I am debating between a reg. bassinet & a Rock N Play Sleeper by fisher price. I have read great reviews but It has your baby sleep slightly inclined & I am worried it will be hard to get him to sleep in the crib if he gets used to the incline. where we had our daughter in her crib by 3 weeks. anyone have this product? & what are your thoughts?

  • It's recommended that it's safest for babies to sleep in their mother's room. Whatever would allow a baby to sleep in your room the longest would be a good choice.

  • Incline the crib mattress for the transition. It's what my doctor had me do to help with my son's breathing.

  • I personally use the play pen/crib. It has the little bassinet type of piece in it. A sleeper, that slightly sits the baby up a bit. I like it because if she spits up, it doesn't fall back into her nose ( choking ) It looks so darn comfy, and costs 100- 120. It also turns into a traveling play pen, and has a diaper changer attached to it. :D Multi usage is great. Here's a link for it at like a walmart.

    This is exactly what we use:

  • I would use the one with the incline it is healthier for the baby to be inclined slightly to help breathing and prevent inhalation of spit up. When you transition to a crib you can incline the crib mattress as well, the make things to incline the crib or you can stick a phone book under the mattress. Also Gaill if you can't give an answer that is directly related to the question then stop answering we are all quite tired of your crap.

  • My son slept in his bouncey chair for his first month and 1/2 of life because he hated laying flat on his back. Finally he started not sleeping well in it anymore so I moved him into his bassinet. He slept fine! We had no transitioning problems.
