what parents are saying
We used this all the time with baby #1. Pad holds up after washing nicely, just got it back out to use for baby #2 and it still looks brand new. (Oct 20, 2017)
As you'll see by how many parents have rated it, the Fisher-Price Rock n Play is pretty much a household staple (and at a price-point that makes it a no-brainer). It folds flat for storage and travel, and parents port it room-to-room, with one mom calling it her "second set of hands." And it is a life-saver for babies with reflux -- or any baby who doesn't like lying flat.

My sister-in-law gave me this and I had no idea what it was until we used it at my parents. It was great! Soothes baby and was a great place to get her to nap as a newborn and infant. A must have!

I love that my daughter takes the best naps in this! It’s perfect and lightweight so I can take it around the house. I even broke it down, put it in a suitcase, and took it on vacation with me!

Probably the most helpful thing we own! Our baby LOVES this seat. He plays in it happily, and rests in it every night while we eat dinner. Vibrates, rocks and plays music—it’s like a baby whisperer!

This is a must for the first few weeks when babe just wants to be held! It snuggles them tight so you can pop in the shower. Also, recommended for napping and sleeping for a baby with reflux

Have the premium and its AMAZING there is barely anything it doesn't do! My daughter is 3 months and still sleeps in it. Great for reflux babies, and for babies who may want to swaddle but dont likeit

The Rock and Play was my lifesaver when my children were 4 months and younger! I took it everywhere with me and it folds easily to bring on the go. My children slept in here quite often & were comfy!

I don’t know what I would do without this! My baby loves this so much it’s her favorite place to sleep. She loves the vibration on it. I also like that you can rock it as fast as you want.

My baby peacefully slept in this for the first four months of his life! Great because baby is on a slight incline. We worried less about spit up and choking in his sleep because of this product.

We bought the FP Auto Rock 'n Play after a couple nights of our newborn only sleeping in the swing (which meant one of us was on the couch supervising). Definitely spring for the AUTO version!

I have the auto rock version. You can change speed of the rocking. It also plays music and you can change the volume on it. It’s a lifesaver when coming to bedtime and naps. Also folds up for storage.

Recommend self rocking version. Must have for newborn sleep. Lightweight, good for travel, easy to clean. My son slept in this next to my bed until he was 4 months old. Easy transition to crib.

I would suggest only using this for 2-3 months max. We didn't put our son into his crib until he was 7 months (poor choice on our end) and he had become so dependent on us being there to help him with things that it really contributed to his sleep patterns. I will say that this was amazing though and a huge huge help for any mom/dad! Good luck!
No issues for us either. It was a better sleeping choice for our daughter for awhile due to reflux issues but we set it up in her room with the camera at night so she wouldn't get accustomed to being in our room.
First off, remember that every baby is different! We started putting my daughter down for naps in her crib around 3.5 months, though she still slept in the Rock n Play at night until 4 months. We didn't have any transition problems whatsoever! We did have her do a fair amount of tummy time in the crib though, so she could get "used" to it before we started having her sleep in there.
Sorry, my comment was cut short & I can't figure out how to edit! With our 1st, my daughter had no issues transitioning to the crib from the rock n play. However, with our 2nd, my son struggled w/the transition. He also had a harder time learning to sleep through the night. So those two issues went hand in hand. We used advice found online & he's sleeping in his crib and through the night.
Our daughter was in it at night for 5 months. To help transition her to her crib we would put her in there during the day for naps. Once she was good with sleeping there for longer proofs we put her in her crib. Our son is almost 4 months and we have started the transition for him now. Good luck!!
We used this for the first 2 or so months with my son. He didn't care much for it except for naps so that made it easier for us to transition him. We also introduced him to his crib in between naps and I think that helped a lot as well.
I asked our pediatrician that question after my daughter had been sleeping in it for a few months. She said it's incredibly rare for something like that to happen. No matter what your baby sleeps on, there is always a slight risk for flat spots, but you can help prevent it by making sure your baby doesn't sleep on the same side of their head all the time (just turn it gently once they're asleep).
My opinion is it could, yes, but the same risk as leaving the baby lying in the same position too long in any bassinet, swing, crib, etc. And i think the current ones have more padding to help prevent it. Hope this helps!
Limit the time in the rocker and you should be ok. My baby would be ok. My baby would be in the rocker for a long stretch but he never had a flat head. But i would certainly not recommend whole night sleep in the rock and play.
Hi! Love love this product - my daughter is almost 8 months old and has had no issue with flat head! She spends a lot of time in it too! Never slept in it for long periods of time, but definitely an hour or two here and there during the day.
Yes!! This is my go-to gift for new parents, and I had two of them, and they were the most important things to get me through 0-6 months! They are perfect for feeding, sleeping, and anything you could imagine early on, and the incline is great for any babies with reflux. Almost no product I'd recommend more highly!
