We have 3 littles, one of whom is our adopted nephew who is 14 months old and special needs. He shares the nursery with my 20 month old daughter, and he often keeps her up during nap time and at bed time. He struggles with calming himself down enough to fall asleep, and that presents a unique set of issues for us, as a household with two babies that are 5 1/2 months apart. We bought this as a place he could be when our daughter needed to nap/sleep. Little did we know, HE would be sleeping in THIS! We started putting him in the Nuna Sena Mini in whichever room of the house was empty, whether that was our bedroom, the living room, etc. Low and behold, our little guy started taking naps of his own! I know that sounds trivial, but when you have a child who seldom, if ever, sleeps more than 30-45 mins at a time without getting restless, a whole nap is a Christmas miracle! He loves his Nuna Sena Mini! I think it's the perfect little size to make him feel safe and snuggled, as opposed to his giant crib which we keep free of blankets/pillows for safety reasons. I'm not entirely sure whether it's the soft mattress, the size, the fact that he's able to be alone without stimulation..... Either way, the Nuna Sena Mini has breathed NEW LIFE into our home and I couldn't give it enough stars! It's lightweight, easy to move from room to room which we do constantly, comes in beautiful colors, and very easy to wipe clean.
Note: In the photo, I had him set up next to our bed, and was watching him for the duration he slept on my pillow. He was never left alone with my pillow in the portable crib.
