Can we talk about sleep with an infant?! Some of us have been blessed with babies that sleep hours through the night. Some of us have been blessed with babies that wake up from their slumber every 45 minutes. I have been on both sides with my two boys. What I will say, is that when I was up every 45 minutes throughout the night, I would have bought ANYTHING to help me sleep more! I was googling everything under the sun to try to find a solution and any type of product that would help me and my baby get the zzz’s we needed.
I started out with a Dock-a-tot with my second son (It wasn’t around yet with my first). I was skeptical at first that this sleep “nest” would even work! But, BOY WAS I WRONG. Jacob loved his Dock-a-tot and slept for hours straight in it. If you follow me and my kiddos you know that I had a 9 and 1/2 pound baby! HUGE! Since he was born so big, we outgrew the Dock-a-tot pretty quickly. Once I realized we didn’t have much longer in our current dock-a-tot deluxe, I looked into the next size… the dock-a-tot grand. It was definitely GRAND, and so was the price tag! I couldn’t get myself to pay that much for an item! (If you know me, you know I am a deal hunter!)
Hence, I took to google yet again and started to look for alternative products that would work just as well, if not better. This is when I stumbled upon the cutest little shop on Etsy: Custom Baby Fun. I found the size I needed for my little (big) guy and I could customize his new nest in anyway that I wanted to! She was so friendly and helpful during the customization to make sure I got exactly what I wanted! We not only got a super comfy nest that my little LOVES, BUT IT ALSO MATCHES HIS ROOM! I couldn’t ask for more and we all sleep wonderfully!
The secret is that the baby nest is created to mimic the womb, so the snugger the fit, the better it works. You can even adjust the tie at the bottom of the nest for the perfect fit as your baby ages. Your baby should always be placed in the nest with the head towards the top, and the feet in the direction of the tie.
The nest is great for co-sleeping ,tummy time, play time, napping. It is perfect for taking around the house anywhere you go, so your new baby has a safe place to lay. It is also perfect for travel!
