what parents are saying
This is what our son slept in for the first 3 months. He was right by our bed. Its great that is so snug for newborns, also gives them the vibrations to help sooth and sleep. Its easy to travel with! (Jul 26, 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 baby liked this however when I used it I wouldn't leave him alone. It makes me nervous of chin to chest and when baby starts wiggling you have to be careful they don't end up upside down. Too risky

The only thing baby would sleep in as a newborn. Saved our sanity. Not great for baby's back/flathead so we transitioned her out at 2 months, but for those first several weeks, this was a lifesaver.

My son slept in this in our room and we never had safety concerns. He was a great sleeper from the start but didn't like a swaddle so this kept him cozy. Helped a ton for his reflux as well.

I love having a place to put our little man. The vibrating feature provided some much needed comfort for his gas. We live in an apartment, so I loved that the rock 'n play sleeper folded up nicely.

I wasted money on let's just say 4moms, lol, baby loved this so much. We bought one each for the grandparents homes as well. It was perfect for a safe area to sleep when Baby wasn't rolling over.

This Fisher-Price Rock 'n Play was one of two products that were complete life savers for us! My daughter had reflux and the incline allowed her (and us) to finally get some much needed sleep.

Wasn't comfortable using for baby to sleep. She also decided it was best place to blow out diapers. On plus side the fabric held up to being washed every day. Make sure to fully dry or mold grows.

Safe, comfortable for baby, used a lot for naps and when girls would be congested to help them sleep with elevated heads. Love the vibration feature. Also used to feed our twins at the same time

We absolutely could not have lived without this for the first year! I love the height and depth of this rock n play. It was absolutely perfect for our daughter to sleep in or just snuggle down in.

I used this with both kids and it is the first thing I tell friends to go out and buy when I hear they're pregnant. It is a lifesaver. Safe for the kiddos to sleep in those first few weeks/months.

This is a great sleeper for a very new baby - after about 2 months, my baby didn't want to be in the sleeper. He preferred the swing or the bouncer chair. We used this for naps only, not for overnight

My daughter refused to sleep in her crib until she was around 4 months old. We tried just about everything from bassinet to pack and play and this is the ONLY thing that she would sleep in!

My daughter used this when we visited grandma's house. I like it bc we used it as a co sleeper and just placed it by our bed. It's super light. It's not my favorite sleeper but it gets the job done!

I cannot say enough good things about this product. I bought the auto rock one and our LO slept in it next to our best until 8 weeks (when he went to crib). He LOVED it!!!!! A serious must have!

Bought this for my newest baby as a way to keep her within arm's reach at night. Easy to carry from room to room during the day, and compact to pack in vehicle for travel. Soft vibrations, durable

We have an older non- electronic rock n play. When my babies were young, it was really nice to have something so portable to set them in. By the time they were 2 & 4 mos, neither of them liked it.

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!!
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!
