Anyone have an Amby Baby?

We're seriously considering getting one for Noah. He is the WORST sleeper and it's killing me. He sleeps grat in the swing, but it would be nice for him to be in a "bed" close to me and I want to keep the swing downstairs.

Feedback please?

Re: Anyone have an Amby Baby?

We had one for middle dd, and she slept in it until she was about 5 months old. She would have probably stayed in it longer, but I put her in the crib for about a week when I washed the Amby mattress and got lazy and didn't put it back together right away. After sleeping in the crib, she didn't seem to be comfortable in the Amby anymore. In the instructions that come with the Amby, it does say to be consistent about putting baby in it and not to switch back and forth between it and crib/bed.

We loved it for dd - and I ended up selling it for a good price on ebay when I was finished with it. I ordered another one just recently since we're expecting again any day. She will be in the Amby exclusively - I'm not even going to put a crib in her room for quite a while.

Re: Anyone have an Amby Baby?

does he have reflux? I think amby beds are primarily for that. they now make a cradle type rocking bouncy seat. I never used these but my friend swears by them. my trio had severe reflux and all spent several nights sleeping in their cradle swings in the 3-4 month period. Reflux is typically worst at this age. not sure if that helps...

also--have you tried a sound machine? we use one and my babes love it! they started sleeping 6 hour stretches at 3 mos. (1 month adjusted age).

How old is Noah? We tried the Amby when ds was 5 months old. Didn't work, he hated it!! I think it's best when used from day one with a newborn. We kept it though, for the next baby!
