sleep positioners
Our 4 month old son sleeps in his car seat in the co-sleeper next to our bed. This of course keeps him elevated but does not seem like an ideal solution since the angle 'folds' his belly and may contribute to discomfort. He almost always wakes up in pain after we put him to sleep, so a better positioner seems like a great idea. However, one of our hesitations in investing in something else is that he often wakes up in discomfort even if he is lying on us upright or at an upright angle, so changing his positioner may not help that much. The hammocks look nice but a couple of them have been recalled which is a concern. We could get the tucker sling or the AR Pillow, but our concern is that he won't be comfortable in them since he wont be nestled. Can anyone help us figure out something better than the car seat? Thanks!

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
The Fisher Price Soothing Motions Glider was the worlds greatest invention.. if you want my opinion. Perfect angle, you can still swaddle and it has a flat side to side motion vs the dip of swing. Would not have survived with out it. I have had 3 friends borrow it since Ryan had it. Check Craigs list. I bet you can find a used one.

Love the Tucker Sling. We used it while elevating Kylie's mattress really high. I think it gives a swaddled/nestled effect. In fact you can use it even if the baby is actually swaddled. Highly recommend.
Check with your
doctor first!
