    Default Looking for a baby bed that is portable and rocks or can be rocked! Please Help!

    Hi everyone. I have a very fussy baby who is rocked to sleep every few hours. He is currently in a cradle with wheels but we are going away and I don't know if I will get ANY sleep with him in a normal port-a-cot. I would rather try and wean him from the rocking at home so that we can enjoy our holiday!

    Does anyone know of anything safe for bubs to sleep in that is portable and can be rocked or swings etc. I would love to know!

    okay, long link.
    but it's called the minnie mouse pack n play playyard (they are portacots) with cuddle cove rocking seat by graco.
    think maybe just the rocking seat would do?
    or check out the fisher price.
    or a hammock? rock him in the hammock then put him in the portacot?

    have a great holiday

    have you tried a hammock? http://www.babyhammocks.com/

    portable, easy to set up and bub can be bounced or swayed to sleep. Both my kids have loved it.

    eta - daily baby buys have a deal on a hammock tomorrow, don't know the brand but worth checking out.
