Anyone have a nap nanny?
I'm desperately trying to figure out our sleeping situation (if you can't tell by my baby monitor post) Does anyone have the nap nanny? Do you like? How long were you able to use it? It's a bit spendy and they don't accept returns :( Thanks for your input

Ryan was born May 20th 2008. 9 lbs 2 oz. Ryan’s magic bullet was 30mg of Prevacid capsules mixed with Caracream from Marci-kids (I am forever indebted to the team at Marci-kids), Claratin for the mucos, and Mirlax for the constipation. Within 2 months of this combo he jumped from the 6% to the 50% for weight and continues to climb. Be strong, listen to your instincts. Read his story for more specifics that just might help you too - Karen
I have the nap nanny. It is good until they can roll over or get mobile. Loved mine until I happened to wake up at 2 am and decided to check on Ryan for no particular reason. Imagine my surprise when I opened my door and found him crawling out his bedroom door towards the stairs. I was done with it after that. It really needs a 5 point or something different to keep them in as it is really shallow. The Fisher Price Soothing Motions Glider is what I used. Glides flat side to side instead of in a swinging motion. Ryan hated the swing but slept like a rock in the glider. Keep looking.. you will find your answer...

I should have added that my neighbor is currently borrowing it for her daughter. She is a big time asperator to the point that she has to sleep with a bulb syringe next to her. The Nap Nanny has been a godsend for her... I think Ryan was just too old for it.

Mother of a reflux baby
Nap Nanny
I was desperate to find something my daughter would sleep in so I gave in and purchased the Nap Nanny after reading all the reviews. Luckily I didn't get my hopes up too high because it didn't work out for us, my daughter would only sit/sleep in it for a short amount of time and would wake up crying. I later sold it on ebay (for almost the same price I payed for it). They are expensive, but if you purchase one the chance of you being able to get most of your money back by selling it is pretty good. Unfortunatly, my daughter will only sleep for long periods in her carseat (Graco Snugride 32). I know it's a good idea, but it's the only way she will sleep. Not sure what were going to do when she outgrows it!!!!

Mason Matthew born at 28 weeks on 12/10/2007 with MSPI and severe reflux. Still on Neocate, strict MSPI diet, recently weaned off of Prevacid.
Evalise Adelle came along 4 weeks early on 12/2/2009 we thought we could be without this reflux stuff but no such luck. She's MSPI as well, off of breastmilk :-( and on Neocate for MSPI, has eczema (better with Neocate), and worse reflux than her brother did! Doing Buffer babies and Prevacid-
Sorry I'm so late in this discussion, not much time for well anything right now. I have a 2 month old with severe reflux and caved and got one. I don't really like it and neither does she. She hates being on her back and this forces her to. She prefers being in her papasan seat on one side or the other swaddled. Unfortunately you won't know until you try it and they don't make it easy to "try" since they are so expensive and non-returnable. Check Craigs list in your area first maybe.
Check with your
doctor first!
