Considering pairing a head support type cusion with a swing or FP Rock and Play to use as a sort of bassinet.
I prefer to have the babies sleeping in their cribs (plus DH is super opposed to co-sleeping due to paranoia), so I get up, nurse in the room and then do a lot of walking and reading and trying to get them back to sleep . . . but I recall with DD that it was always around the 1 am/3 am feeding that I couldn't get her to fall asleep at all and those first few months are so hard. It wasn't the end of the world b/c at the time we had borrowed a travel swing (it was soft) and I would use that to help get her to sleep when I was desperate. Since I am going back to work with this one, I feel like I will have more desperate need in the wee hours.
Now all I will have at my disposal is a great swing (Fisher Price Aquarium one) with a really hard seat. I was thinking I could buy the Snuzzler or the Boppy Noggin Nest or something and put it in there to prevent against flat spots. I also thought about buying the fisher price rock n play to use as a sort of bassinet.
The other reason why I'm thinking about this is that DH is going to be home on his own with the kids for about 4-5 weeks and he doesn't do the babywearing like I do. I'm sure DS is going to be in these toys a little more than he would be with me. I am worried about flat spots.
But I thought I remembered hearing/reading that these sorts of things were bad/dangerous to use with babies. Am I making this up?
Also, would not be using this in the crib.
