So, you voted to win a Stork Craft Tuscany Glider for the next big contest giveaway. This was a great choice! With some of the highest ratings for gliders online, the Tuscany Glider is an easy-to-assemble, comfortable, durable glider that will last you for years. Here are what some of the customers that own this glider are saying about it:

Great Rocker!
I love this rocker! I’m a new mother and my baby and I have spent many nights sleeping in this chair. It was very easy to assemble, fits great in our limited space and the arm rests are perfect hieght for you to fall asleep with your baby and boppy pillow. Its a perfect nursing chair! The cushions are comfortable enough for a 2 hour nap, the color is great and its a great value. I couldnt be happier with it.

Rocking my baby to sleep
This rocker and ottoman is fantastic! Assembly was fast and easy! Good price and the quality is much better than expected! I’m a big guy and even I get to use this piece often without any worry of it breaking. Fabric is nice and easy to clean and suffice it to say I am a very satisfied customer.

Great and Comfortable!
What a great buy! I’m so glad I ordered this chair out of all of the ones out there. It was easy to put together and so comfortable! I spend most of my nights in this chair now a days with our newborn and the cushioning is so comfortable and the ottoman is perfect! Great buy!!

For me, what’s great about this glider is that it was comfortable for someone of my size (over 6 feet and more than 200 lbs). This really is the perfect product to compliment a baby nursery. Stay tuned to this blog for more details on this great product giveaway, as it will be up and running very soon!

The people have spoken…Tuscany Glider wins!

Getting baby to sleep in crib

Getting your baby to sleep in a crib during the first few months can be both frustrating and challenging. The reality is that every baby has different tendencies and needs, most of which take time to get used to (for both the baby and the parents).

I recently sat down with my sister Haley, who has a 4 week old baby girl named Kacey. I was interested in her perspective as a first-time mother and if she had any successful tips to give other moms trying to get their newborns comfortable sleeping in a crib. This is what she had to say:

For many reasons, it is common for parents to put their baby next to their bed in a bassinet to sleep for the first few weeks or months of the baby’s life. This is what we are currently doing with our four week old baby, however during the day when she goes for short naps, we put her in her beautiful nursery to sleep in her ‘Status‘ crib. This way, we know that when we are ready to transition her to sleeping in her own room, she will have no problems sleeping in her crib. We have friends who’s babies have had very difficult times making the switch to sleeping in their cribs after never having been in a crib for the first three or more months of their lives. We believe we are preventing that sort of struggle from happening to us in the future, as she is able to sleep happily in her crib already.

There are some good articles available online on getting your baby to sleep in a crib easier:
