I used the Amby Hammock with both my boys and highly recommend it. We used it from birth to about a year old and then transfered into a cotbed. I plan to use it when i have another so it will definately get used to the value of what I spent!

Its good points are that it moves very gently when the baby moves, or you can sort of bounce it yourself. You can use it with or without a mattress. I used it with for my first and without for my second. I think I prefer it without, though it does look at bit odd when there is no baby in it!It takes up less space than a cot and is portable too.

Down side is that if your baby gets used to sleeping only in the hammock, they will have trouble sleeping on a flat bed. We had this trouble, but I have friends that used it in conjunction with pram, travel cot when away etc and had no problems.

I really like them and would recommend them to anyone.

I think westarted a little late for our DS at 2 months however he def preferred it to the Moses basket-which he NEVER went in. Aged 4 months he started to try and roll over and get frustrated so we put him in a cot. That said if we have another as we hope to I would try it again from newborn this time.

I bought an Amby Baby for dd who would not fall asleep except at the breast or in the buggy. Dd thought it was a wonderful toy for 10 minutes then wanted out. She never fell asleep in it, however much bouncing I did. But then again, dd is exceptionally hardcore on sleep. The seller swore it would work and agreed to take it back and give me a refund - no fuss.
