When it comes to Christmas gifts for new parents nothing is more important than the gift of sleep. My sister had a baby five months ago and found quickly that my nephew likes to sleep sitting up. Which actually is very common. That is why many babies sleep in their car seat better than any other seat. However, most parents don't want to lug that heavy car seat around, plus they aren't as comfy as they aren't designed for babies to sleep in. The Dex DayDreamer however has the benefits of being angled the same as the car seat but soft like a blanket. No rough texture or uncomfortable seating for your little bundle of joy.
In the pictures above you can see my five month old nephew he is a big boy, he is the average size of a 9 month old so this gift will last a new parent at least from the point of birth until 9 months. With the lap belt it prevents little ones from wiggling out and soft cover from rubbing on their legs.
The size is actually about the size of the average carseat only the material is far softer and surprisingly light. I recommend this for new parents as it really does give a safe nap location. Overall I would have to say that on the level of must haves this is definitely a luxury item, but could easily become one of your must haves if your baby prefers car seat sleeping.
