A friend of mine recently gave me a rock and play sleeper like this one
it is one that has been recalled because of mold issues. I checked, and it does have a small amount of mold on it. DF and I were discussing this, and he said we should wash it (per the instructions from Fisher-Price), and use it. I'm not so sure. I was wondering what y'all think about this? Am I being overly paranoid, or is/would/could it be okay to use, once it's been cleaned?
Mama to DD (12.2005), DS1 (01.2009), DS2 (04.28.2013) with DH 04.10.13!!
Personally, I would only use it if using that one was my best or only option and I was able to laundry wash the all fabric parts as well as thoroughly treat the non-fabric parts.
Honestly, my first choice would be to find another rocker. Mold can be dangerous stuff, and tricky to thwart, especially if you're unwilling or unable to go chemical.
On a brighter note, yay babies! Congratulations, and very good luck!
And on 09/23/2011, we were three; husband, daughter, and me!
I guess it depends on if the baby likes it....? :) I kinda stayed away from trying a lot of that stuff because we were practicing attachment parenting and wearing baby to soothe and things... But my daughter would have probably liked something like this, she was the fall asleep on the floor while you're chatting with another mom type newborn.... I earned it, my first didn't sleep and screamed for the first 14 months... But my girl might have loved something like this. :)
