Jasmine 4-in-1 Crib by Delta

January 30th, 2008 by wisemama

We have been using the Jasmine 4-in-1 Crib by Delta Children’s Products nonstop for almost 3 years now. I started using this crib once my son was out of his bassinet, until he was about 24 months old and we needed it for my youngest son. Once this boy is big enough we plan on still using it and converting it to a toddler bed. Now, realize that this crib has been through quite a beating with two rambunctious boys, and it still looks like brand new and is as sturdy as the first day we put it up in the nursery.

This versatile and stylish piece of nursery furniture starts out as a crib with a quiet track fixed drop side for easy lifting of the baby into and out of the crib. There are 5 mattress height positions, allowing the mattress to be dropped down for when your little one starts sitting up and standing. Later the crib can be converted to a toddler bed, a day bed and even a full size bed. The full size bed requires an additional frame which is sold separately, but is easily available for purchase from Delta Children’s Products.

The Jasmine 4-in-1 Crib features a solid wood frame and metal construction, and it is JPMACP certified, meeting all mandatory and voluntary safety standards. As a crib and toddler bed it is rated for up to 50 pounds. It comes in several different stains to match your nursery decor, such as natural, cherry, and white. For more information, please go to Delta Children’s Products.

Shermag Deluxe Glider/Rocker

January 7th, 2008 by wisemama

I don’t know where I would be without my glider. The best example I can give is that if I have to put my kids to bed anywhere other than my home, the Shermag Deluxe Glider is the item I truly miss the most at that time. This cushy chair has been in use even before my boys were born, simply because it is so comfortable! I used to sit in it and rock myself to sleep when I had to sleep upright due to severe reflux during the last month of both of my pregnancies. I also used the matching ottoman to prop my feet upon since I was dealing with pretty severe edema/swelling in my legs as well. But by far the most use I have gained from this glider is during feeding and rocking my boys before naptime and bedtime.

The Shermag Deluxe Glider is a modern rocking chair that “glides” smoothly with a rocking motion. The cushions are super thick and comfortable – you practically melt into it! The back of the chair comes up pretty high, so much so that at 5’7″ I can comfortably rest my head and relax with my boys during feeding and our bedtime routine. Even my 6’5″ husband can rest his head on the back. I think this is such an important feature, because I have been in other rockers at other’s homes, and with more then 5 minutes of rocking my neck would start to ache while I was feeding my kids. The armrests are also nice and covered with cushions – my Boppy Pillow fits perfectly, resting on both armrests, and my kids feel comfortable and secure. The Shermag Deluxe Glider is basically silent, too, which means none of that squeaking rocking chair noise which has the potential to either keep your kids up or wake them when you are trying to lull them.

The Shermag Deluxe Glider and Ottoman are made with real hardwood, stained in several different colors to match any kind of nursery furniture you may have. The thickly upholstered cushions are also available in several different fabric types and colors to suit your taste. Some of these gliders even have an added feature of a locking mechanism, if you just want to use the glider as a stationary chair. For more information about the Shermag Gliders and Ottomans, please visit Shermag Furniture. These gliders are available for purchase through both Target and Amazon.
