The Item No New Parent Should Live Without

Ladies, we all remember that episode of Sex and the City when new mom Miranda just can't calm Brady and finally a neighbour introduces her to a vibrating baby chair.

The vibrating baby chair should seriously be essential as a crib, stroller and perhaps even car seat. At least for a parent's sanity.

Hannah loves her FisherPrice Newborn to Toddler Rocker (retails $79.99 at Babies "R" Us). But I think Chris and I love it slightly more.

The vibrating clams her. The rocking calms her. And she loves staring at the cute little cat dangling from an arm. It also plays "Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star" which has averted more than one meltdown. The best part is - she LIKES to sit in it.

The Rocker is also a great place for her to take a nap when she is fussy and is fighting sleep. Sometimes Chris and I will even put her in the chair and THEN turn the stove's fan on - usually this will calm her down and allow her to nap. I like to call this "The Double Whammy" - if it doesn't work when she's irritable, nothing will.

I definitely recommend this to any other parent. Yes, depending on how much your child sits in it you may go through a lot of batteries, but it's totally and completely worth every penny.
