*I received the product mentioned below to write this review.
Here are a few quick facts about the product:
- Soft, plush, cozy seat will keep baby content as the 3 in 1 Rocker Napper easily converts from seat to napper
- Great styling, beautiful fabrics, adorable light and music toy
- Gentle rocking soothes baby in all 3 reclining positions
- Safe and cozy flat napper position with raised borders
- Grows with your baby as a toddler rocker that can hold up to 40 pounds
So, what sets the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper apart from other baby products on the market? For me, it's all about the versatility!! As I said before, there are a TON of various baby products on the market. You have bassinets and simple nappers for sleep time...then you have swings and bouncers, etc for play. Not only do all these products add up in cost, but they take up a ton of room as well. The 3-in-1 Rocker Napper eliminates some of the need for multiple products! With it's three reclining positions, it is perfect for sleep OR play. The second reclining position is also the perfect position to feed babies suffering from reflux to aid in digestion. It also changes between the positions extremely easily...even while baby is still in it! So if baby falls asleep playing, as babies so often do...there is no need to worry about moving them, simply recline to napper position. So instead of having to purchase one product for sleep, and another for play...the Rocker Napper covers them both, all in one product- saving you space and money! Aside from taking up space and money, these other products also often cannot be used for very long. Typical bassinets, nappers, and even bouncers only go up to about 25 pounds. After baby is too big, there is no more use for the product. This is not the case with the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper. Instead, it grows WITH the child, and can be used as a toddler seat for children up to 40 pounds-giving you more use for your money! This is a huge selling point for me personally.
Aside from the versatility, the 3-in-1 Rocker Napper has some other great features that make it pretty awesome. First of all, it features a vibrating function to gently soothe baby as well as a music and lights feature as well. These two features can be used together or individually, or not at all. I particularly loved that the music feature had various styles of music- from more playful to relaxing, depending on the setting you choose. My older son has sensory issues and cannot tolerate lullabies for whatever reason, so I like that we can still use the music feature without it scaring him. There are also two sound options too choose from- neither too loud, so baby can still enjoy that without disturbing the rest of the family. The lights and toys from the mobile are also nice and colorful and I'm certain will keep baby entertained! (The mobile can also be removed.)
Now, that you know all about the various features, let's talk style! To be honest, it was the original brown and red options that first attracted me to the Rocker Napper. I loved that they would both coordinate with my living room, while still being a great place for baby to rest and play. When I first saw the new design choices, I wasn't sure how I felt about them... they were cute enough, of course, but not nearly as subtle as the original. I have to say though, after seeing the new Flow design in person, I am 100% completely won over. I truly don't think they photos do this justice...it's so bright, fun and modern...so it doesn't match my living room, but hey, baby will love it anyway!! And the toys on the mobile are much cuter than the original design as well. (Of course, all are still available for purchase, if you do prefer that look!) And of course, quality is everything, and the Tiny Love 3-in-1 Rocker Napper is great quality...and super soft for baby! I honestly can't believe I ever had doubts after seeing it in person!
As busy parents, setup is another big factor to look at. While the Rocker Napper does require adult assembly, it was super easy and fairly quick. The directions were easy to follow and I was able to do it myself without any help from the husband! (And I swear, it's still safe for baby!) I'd say it took me about 15-20 minutes to sort the pieces and assemble. Not too time consuming at all, and much easier than some of the other baby gear I've been putting together lately!
Overall, I am completely in love with our 3-in-1 Rocker Napper! It's cute, it's multi-functional...it doesn't take up too much space and can be moved easily from room to room...I'm a mommy who likes to have baby close by so this is great too! Though our little one isn't yet here to try it out for herself, I am certain she will love it! I know Mommy does!! I wish I had had a product like this when my son was a baby. I actually would go as far as to say that I would put this on my must have list for new parents. Skip the bouncer, skip the napper, skip the moses basket...this product has you covered all around! And if you're on an extremely limited budget, I'd say you could probably even use this in place of a bassinet for those early days! It truly is one of the most multi-functional baby products on the market!
