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.

  • Q: Did anyone struggle to transition to crib after using this for several months? That's my only concern.

    asked by Elizabeth F. - Feb 17, 2015

  • 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!

  • issues transitioning to crib for us!

    Courtenay P. - Feb 25, 2015

  • 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.

  • While we didn't personally (I'm assuming because we co-sleep), I know many parents who have had issues when using for an extended period of time.

  • 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.

  • Agree that every baby is different. Our first, loved the rock n play and slept there until she was 2 months old. She easily transitioned in one week to the rock n play.

    Emily S. - Feb 25, 2015

  • 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.

    Emily S. - Feb 25, 2015

  • 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!!

  • My son didn't have any issues, but he also only slept in it for 1 month before we moved him. We also used a swaddle while he was in his crib which could have helped?

    Ashley H. - Oct 12, 2017

  • We did struggle initially but I think this is the best thing for a baby that could have reflux. Also great for traveling because of it's small footprint!

    Ariana B. - May 25, 2018

  • 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.

  • Q: Could these make my baby have a flat head?

    asked by Julie W. - Mar 25, 2014

  • 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).

    Virginia G. - Mar 25, 2014

  • 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!

    Wendi C. - Mar 25, 2014

  • I was told to get one with the head pad. Just like any other sleeper or chair it is important to do tummy time and give supervised time without the baby on their back while the baby is awake.

    Amanda M. - Mar 25, 2014

  • 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.

    Ashmi D. - Mar 25, 2014

  • No it will not. I never had any problems with my son having a flat head but I also only put him in this for a nap or for when I was doing something.

    courtney G. - Mar 25, 2014

  • My twin girls spent the first 6 months of their lives in these almost daily and no issues so far and they're almost 2!:)

    Melissa P. - Mar 26, 2014

  • 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.

    Samantha H. - Mar 26, 2014

  • I think as along as you don't leave the baby in there for too long, it should be fine. My daughter slept in it A LOT for the first 6 months and has a perfectly shaped head.

    Erika T. - Apr 01, 2014

  • There is a potential and I think it depends on how long they are in the rocker. I bought a flat head pillow to cradle my son's head and avoid flat head. Worked for us!

    Ro E. - Aug 18, 2018

  • Q: Should I get this? Any one has this? Any issues?

    asked by Alex I. - Mar 17, 2014

  • 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!

    Melissa P. - Mar 18, 2014

  • You should definitely get this . This is the only way my 2 month old will sleep at night .it is a life saver.

    Christy W. - Apr 21, 2017

  • I don't think it's a necessity as every baby is different but if you can get this as a gift, definitely worth it.
