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 goodness for breastfeeding. My darling caught her first flu yesterday. I tried giving her bland foods and drinks all day- she wouldn't touch them. Then I tried her favourites- still nothing. Instead, all she wanted to do was nurse round the clock. That is how we spent the majority of the day- nursing, bathing, cuddling, barfing, repeating.
My goal was to breastfeed Remy until she was 18 months old. After that I had no plans. As she is nearing month 19 earthside, I've discovered that she has no intention of stopping. 
On the rare occasions when she's sick, I'm reminded of why we have kept it up for this long, and why we keep on going. I'm almost certain that she would've become dehydrated yesterday if it wasn't for me nursing her. So although fed is best, the breast is truly a gift. My little lovebug doesn't always want me for naps lately, but when she does, it makes me feel warm, loved, and needed. Also, look at her hand tucked inside of my shirt. I'm melting.
