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.

camping with a baby: 4 unmissable tips every mom needs

When you have a young baby, it’s hard to take them on the plane. For one thing, they can get scared, so it will make for an uncomfortable journey. And it’s a long day for a little one with so much waiting around at the airport. But as parents, we do need a break! Therefore, you should consider going on a camping trip with your small family instead. It’s a great way for you all to bond without heading abroad. Here are four unmissable tips every mom needs when they want to go camping with a young baby.

Look for a family orientated campsite

If you are going away with your family camping, you will want to choose somewhere that is going to be fun for all of you. Therefore, you should be looking for a family orientated campsite which has all the facilities you need to ensure your family has a good trip. For example, there might be an area with toys for kids that you can go to, while your partner goes to do some fishing at one of the lakes. Also, they will have adequate baby changing facilities that you will need if you decide to tent during your camping trip. You can look online to find some great places to go with your baby for an unforgettable trip.

Look into suitable accommodation

Although you might want to tent with your family, it’s going to be harder with your little one. There might not be enough room for their travel cot, and they might struggle to sleep in the strange surroundings. To ensure your family has a great time camping, you might want to look into a travel trailer which can be towed by your vehicle. They will have all the conveniences of home so that you can tend to your baby as necessary. Also, it means you don’t have to rely on campsites to have the right baby changing facilities. You can find a large selection of quality fifth wheels online, which would make the perfect accommodation for your camping break. It’s also an investment piece as you will use it for years to come until your kid is old enough to get on a plane.

Check the weather before you go

You don’t want to end up unprepared when you get to the campsite. For example, if it’s going to be pouring, you need to ensure you have waterproofs to keep your little one safe. You don’t want them to catch a chill as you didn’t check the weather before you left your home! Therefore, go online and check the reports so that you can pack accordingly for your baby.

Pack plenty of diapers and wipes

When you go camping with your family, you might choose to camp somewhere that’s secluded. After all, it’s good to get away from the rest of the world. However, you need to ensure you have plenty of diapers and wipes with you, as you might be situated miles from the shops. As this feature says, they weigh nothing, so pack more than you think you will need. That way, you won’t have to end up driving miles to find diapers!

Hopefully, these tips will ensure your first camping experience with your baby is a joy, not a bad memory!
