  • I have never purchased and likely won't ever purchase a rock n play. Based on guidelines by AAP and CDC, and considering that baby is healthy with no medical reasons to sleep at an incline (as directed by a doctor), I prefer to have my baby sleep flat on his back instead of an inclined surface. I know a family who allowed their infant to sleep in a rock n play and did not "overuse" it. It was JUST for sleeping. Baby got plenty of floor and tummy time when awake. Their baby ended up developing a flat spot on the back of his head from the way the rock n play positioned his head while sleeping. He had to wear a helmet for several months to correct the shaping of his skull.

  • We are using rock and plays at night for our twins. Every real life mommy I know swears by them and none of their kids have flat heads. At the same time my mother in law has a completely flat head. She was born in the 1940s to a family without indoor plumbing so we know they didn't have any type of baby seat because they couldn't afford it and she still got a flat head.

  • As a gift I got the fisher price rock n play and my friend who got it for me said she wishes she had it when her daughter was born and all she hears is good reviews about it from first time moms.

I love the Newborn Rock N Play Sleeper!

With my first we used a rock n play only during the day. I know a few of my friends who used it overnight had trouble transitioning from it to the flat surface of the crib. We personally use a packnplay the first few months overnight, but if I were you I would use a bassinet since it has a flatter surface, similar to that of a crib to make that eventual transition easier on you and baby.
