I should start by saying that Samantha likes to move when falling asleep. By move, I mean that she is accustomed to being bounced or rocked, going on a stroller or car ride, and most often falls asleep swaying in her swing. So, to say I was a bit skeptical that baby would sleep soundly with the DayDreamer Sleeper is an understatement. Knowing that my maternity leave was ending and she would soon be cared for by our wonderful neighbor I knew I needed to find a more practical way to help her sleep during her daytime naps.
When the DayDreamer Sleeper arrived we were immediately impressed with how well constructed and light weight it was, while also being very plush and soft. Daddy commented how much he appreciated the wrapped buckle to keep baby comfortable and not feeling any bulky plastic. He also enjoyed how easy it was to move around without disturbing her sleep.
The first time we sat our little one down she played contently for about 10 minutes before dozing off without a peep. Honestly, I thought this was too good to be true. In the days that followed, we simply watched for Samantha’s sleepy cues then, placed her in the DayDreamer Sleeper with her favorite toy or pacifier and within 20 minutes she was out. Those fussy fits right before falling asleep are squashed and our little one now falls asleep with ease during her daytime naps.
The DayDreamer Sleeper product presents a great solution for both work from home parents and in-home day cares. Samantha’s in-home care provider raves about how much she loves this product. Samantha is able to lounge while playing and watching educational DVDs before drifting off to sleep. We are thrilled that she is getting accustomed to falling asleep on her own and without needing to move around these days. One day soon, maybe, she just might be able to sleep through the night in her crib, maybe?!
You can find the Daydreamer Sleeper at Babies “R” Us and select independent baby specialty stores. It is designed for floor use only, and offers a 28 degree incline, machine washable cover, and waterproof seating area. It’s available in three color choices: blue, sage, and pink.
The Daydreamer Sleeper comes highly recommended, and we are thrilled to be offering one lucky reader their choice of Daydreamer!
