Amby Baby Hammock
I am wondering if any one out there has started to use an amby bed with an older baby and, if so, how did it go? I have a seven-month old son with leg and hip issues (braces) and sleeping has always been difficult for him and it's now becoming *very* difficult. This bed looks as if it might be a good option for us but it seems to be for smaller children/newborns only -- my son is already 20 pounds and 21 inches. Thank you! sleepy mom to sleepy baby
I am considering an Amby Hammock for my baby (1st child I am due
in March) but have not found a lot of information about them
except on their website where, no surprise everybody is in love
with the product. They have a strick return policy, you can't.
Though the baby will be sleeping with me I am interested in this
as an alternate option. Thanks. Anon
after many restless nights and many futile attempts at placing my 3 month old from his car seat to his crib (he is now in his swing), i am thinking of purchasing an amby hammock. i have heard good things and would like to know of any shortcomings with this product. thanks! Judy
It's been great for many reasons. A few of them being:
1.) Anyone can bounce the hammock ... so others are able to comfort the baby to sleep (i.e. not you!).
2.) We have a small apartment with one bedroom. Our son goes to sleep in the hammock in our bedroom, but when we give him his 10pm feeding, we move the hammock into the living room so we have our room to ourselves - portable bedroom!
3.) Our son has now figured out how to bounce the hammock himself. I can hear him playing in there. He has a field day!
4.) We travel a lot and the hammock is so easy to cart around. Also, wherever the hammock is, our son knows it's time for sleep. We can be anywhere, a hotel in the middle of nowhere, and he's in his very own bed.
I could go on and on. Terri
HI! I am six months pregnant with child #2 and came across an interesting product yesterday. It is the Amby baby motion bed, kind of like a non-electric baby swing/ hammock. I remember well all of the sleepless nights with colicky baby #1 and am wondering if anyone has tried this interesting looking bed for their little one. I would love to hear any positive or negative comments about it before I shell out $200 for it! thanks
However, even though the Amby helped her sleep more soundly, it did NOT magically make her sleep through the night, or even sleep in longer stretches than she was before. The 3 am bouncing only worked sometimes, other times I still had to get up and rock her. And now that's she's bigger and more mobile, I'm thinking of transitioning her to a crib. The Amby site says babies can be in it for up to 2 years, but I just feel like she needs room to roll around. I'm happy we got it because she was so small that the coziness of it really made me feel better, but for a normal sized baby, I don't know. Maybe it does work miracles for some people, but for us it was more of a helpful tool. (Sleep training ended up being our reluctantly chosen miracle worker.)
