Madelyn is my little baby who LOVES to be held almost always. She isn't a big sleeper in her crib, and I pretty much Co-Sleep with her at night.
I LOVE the Amby Baby motion bed that I got! It is the ONE sleeper product that works for Miss Madelyn! She loved it from the moment she first tried it. I laid her in there and she just smiled from ear to ear. She loved how it smoothly rocked her. She loved just looking around. It was so relaxing for her that she fell asleep!! She has always needed to be held to go to sleep before the Amby Baby motion bed!! It is a Hammock that hugs her little body. I couldn't believe that she took over an hour nap, too! She is usually a short napper. It is a soft canvas and netting, and it is super! The hammock's materials are made of all-natural 100% cotton fabric! I wish I had this in an adult size!

The Amby Baby comes complete with mattress, frame, spring, hammock and crossbar, set of two matching fitted sheets and a travel bag. You can also get accessories to go with the Amby Baby: Safe and Sound Cuddle Snugglers, Mosquito net, and a Jump Jump. I really want to get the Jump Jump (like a Johnny jump up) because you don't need a door frame to hook it up, and it looks so sturdy.
I love the Amby Baby, and I recommend it for everyone!! We love ours, and I know we will use it a lot for our next baby, too!!
