    So after a crappy week last week, with Bren not sleeping well and his reflux getting worse and worse, my DH and I bought an Amby Baby Hammock bed. It arrived yesterday. I was a bit unsure about it after I set it up, but decided last night after not being able to get Bren to settle in our bed on his wedge, to give it a go. It was a bit akward getting him into it at first, but he did sleep for 2 hours. the rest of the night was a crap, BUT this morning for his nap. I nursed him, he didn't go to sleep. I was rock/bouncing him and he was fighting me, and to be honest after being woke up last night every hour, I was loosing patience. :hissy: So I thought I will just lay him down in the Amby for a moment, regroup and have another go. Well I laid him down, and he didn't start crying, so I thought, hmmmmmm. I started to bounce the bed, and he started to close his eyes. OMG, he fell sleep!!! :happydance: This is the first time I have ever laid him down and he fell asleep. Now hopefully with some patience and work, he will learn to do this without me bouncing the bed for him. :rofl:


    Here is what the Amby is:

    the website claims it is great for colic, reflux, fussy, restless babies. We shall see.

    The website says up to 25 lbs. but once the baby gets mobile, it is time to move them into a cot. I am hoping it will last till he is about 8-9 months, then we can go for the crib.

    YAY! They do look good but out of our budget too.

    Tabs went through major stages of only going to sleep with us rocking/jiggling her.
    Then it seemed like overnight she was fighting us no matter what we tried,then just put her either in her swinging chair or on the other sofa,tucked in with blanket and dummy and thats it she drops off!!
    Maybe she was just pissed off with us and was saying "put me down mum!"
    I dont know but i can sympathise with you,hope it works next time too xxx

    Bren is the same age, but we were dying for sleep and for him to sleep better. Good thing is my best friend is pregnant and due in June. So she can use it. Then when (IF) I have #2 I can get it back!
