Did your dd sleep in the amby at night? Was it a pain (vs having the baby in a basinette beside the bed) to get a sleepy baby into it after night nursings?
My DD was (really, IS) a horrible sleeper, too . . .she actually slept well (briefly) when we got the hammock at NIGHT from 3 months on. It wasn't a pain to get her in and out of it, either . . .but, at that age, she used a pacifier. At 6 months, she promptly spit out the pacifier and never went back, and then for the next 6 months she woke up every 20 minutes-2 hours (2 hours was rare), crying to nurse. When she spit out the pacifier, that's when the hammock no longer worked at night. Still worked well for naps, though.
OT: I really, really, really, really, REALLY wish I could sleep through nursing sessions. My life would've been (and would be when this one is born) infinitely easier . . .ah, to just sleep and nurse, sleep problems wouldn't exist!
Anyway, one thing I liked about the hammock is that when DD was born, she really wanted to be sort of upright--- even co-sleeping didn't work a lot because of this, so we put her in a carseat
: Granted, I didn't sleep much worrying about it, so I like that the Amby more or less will have the baby in that position (though the mattress is firm, considering).
If nothing else, you can sell it and get some money back when you're done! It takes up so little space and you can travel pretty easily with it, too, which is a plus. I also just love the image of remembering DD happily sleeping in it . . .especially since she has never needed a lot of sleep!
(Sometimes I wonder if she's a robot . . .she's usually cheery and she gets so little sleep, needs so little food . . .hmm . . .)
