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.

  • Hello, friends. My name is Emory. I live on the Canadian prairies with my husband, daughter, and animals. Welcome!

  • Thank you to all those who liked, commented, and sent me messages yesterday. I am overwhelmed by your love. I would like to share one more thing. Since 2013, I have used my blog as a creative outlet and my Instagram account as my diary. I feel it’s a much better platform to reach out to others, and to be more truthful (if we dare). I try to only follow those who don’t always show the ups and highs of their “perfect” lives. While I think that the more popular, beige square, ad-infused, California chic, glam mother accounts are beautiful, I also find them to be depressing and unoriginal. A miscarriage is real. It is nothing to be ashamed of. If you don’t choose to discuss yours, that’s totally fine! I needed to share mine in order to begin my grieving and healing process. I am now a mother to two children. This is something that I did not want to, nor will I ever hide. Yes, our second child came much too early and did not survive, but that does not make his/her life any less worthy. Our baby was alive at one time. Our baby has a soul. Now, our baby has a name and will forever be part of our family. We are a family of four- three on earth and one angel in heaven. So, thanks again all. Sadness. What a difference a year can make. Last holiday season, Remy turned 10 months old. She had just gotten her first two teeth, and on Christmas morning, had learned to crawl. This year, we are mourning the loss of our second child. I suffered a miscarriage this week, and it has left a deep void in our family. This was going to be our Christmas card where we revealed to friends and family our joyous secret. Now, it remains one of our only photos as a family of four. Because of this, I want to share it with the world. Give your children an extra hug and kiss for me tonight. You are so blessed to have them. All my love, Emory.
