fisher-price rock ‘n glide soother: review

fisher-price-glider-1A few weeks ago, we ended up packing up Remy’s Fisher-Price 4-in-1 Rock ‘n Glide Soother. I have yet to love any baby product as much as I loved her glider.

I’m sure most of you know by now Remy suffers from infant reflux. Diagnosed at less than two months old, we quickly learned that whenever she slept flat on her back at night, she couldn’t eat the next day. It was a horrible situation. I had read online that one remedy was to swaddle them and strap them into a swing or glider. Desperate, Geoffrey and I tried it. Her reflux began to clear up, which allowed her to continue to eat and sleep well. So for the next six months, Remy slept in her glider.

fisher-price-glider-2I loved this Fisher-Price Rock ‘n Glide Soother for many reasons. The first is because I always knew that Remy was strapped in, on her back, and safe every night. I loved the faint green light that stayed on while the glider was on. It acted as a nightlight, and whenever I wanted to see her beautiful face, all I had to do was look over at her and she was illuminated. I loved the music that it played. Because of it, she learned to fall asleep to any lullaby. I loved that you could take the glider off of the track and it would become a rocker. I also loved that it either swayed left to right or front to back. Remy preferred the back and forth motion. I loved the print. The fabric was incredibly soft, and stayed that way even after several washes. I loved its size- it was neither too big nor too small. I loved its handles, the bar with the toys, and the colour of it. Honestly, every aspect was just perfect to me.

When Remy turned eight months old, she no longer wanted any part of her glider. Since then, she has been sleeping in her crib. This has caused her reflux to flare up again, which makes it difficult for her to breathe when she eats. As a result, we’re back to square one in trying out different ways to elevate her head when she sleeps all the while trying to keep her safe. It’s an ongoing process, but one that I hope we’re making progress with. How I wish that they made gliders for toddlers!

If you were ever looking for the best glider on the market, then look no further than this one. It truly is the most amazing product for babies.

  • Welcome, friends! My name is Emory. I am a wife, mother of two (one earthside and one with the angels), and an animal rescuer. This is our life on the Canadian prairies.

  • Man, did Remy and I have a standoff this morning. All because she didn’t want to wear socks with her boots. She threw a massive tantrum, and I yelled at her. Afterwards, we went for our walk and everything was back to normal. That is, aside from her puffy eyes and tear-stained face. My poor girl. Parenting can be so hard sometimes. Thank goodness for children being so resilient. 
That disaster behind me is nearly gone. We’re currently installing the last of our kitchen shelves, and our new sink arrived this morning. I’m excited to have a less cluttered spare room!
Have a wonderful week, everyone. This room has not yet been touched by us. It is our master bedroom. Everything about it (aside from our furniture) is exactly the same as when we purchased our home. I think that if we do list in the near future, it will be the only room in our house that we did not renovate. Part of me wants to stay just to finish it. A small part.
