This product isn't perfect, but we're glad we bought it. The sound effects aren't so hot, but that wasn't what we bought it for. Shortly after installing it, we found that it would stop on its' own, only to kick back on when moved or turned off/back on. I found that it's the little battery positioners that are separating the batteries.

Take the battery cover off and remove the batteries. Remove the five screws and open the unit. There isn't much to it. From the bottom, you can see where the battery positioners just clip in. Unclip and remove them. You'll find that the batteries vibrate in the unit now, but that was solved by a bit of fabric folded up and placed under the lid.

As far as the crappy antenna reception goes, you see the little orange (on mine) wire that curls around the outside of the case but is only connected on the one side? Strip the insulation off. That'll give you a few extra feet. You could probably pull it out and wrap it around the bed frame if you had to.

The sound effects are so-so. The quality on the digital recording is pretty bad. We have a Homedics soother with a little light show which we use and I highly recommend. Still, for fourty bucks less than comparable products, I'll keep it.

I needed a crib vibrator, and after looking, I could not find much else like this product. I read the reviews and saw that people had mixed results with getting it to work, but I took a chance and ordered it.

Sure enough, when I hooked it up, our baby monitor interfered with the signal. When the monitor was on, the vibrator would only work when 2-3 feet from the base, and would stop if you moved it around. With the monitor off, it worked within 15 feet or so.

Changing the channel on the monitor made no difference. Neither did taking one reviewer's advice to strip the wire antenna on the receiver.

So, here is what I did - I converted it from "wireless" to "wired". It worked like a charm and no more interference. Drawback is now there is a wire between the two units.

READ ON if you want to know how to do it:

1) Get a long piece of thin wire. I used some narrow gauge speaker wire that I had around. It needs to be the length you want to put the two units apart, with some extra to make life easier. You only need one of the two strands. Strip about an inch off of the ends.

2) Take the covers off of the units using a small screwdriver. Take out the batteries!

3) On the base, you will see a long rod with wire coiled around it. This is the transmitter. The wire is very fine and delicate but it connects to a thicker wire that attaches to a circuit board. Wrap one end of your stripped wire around this thicker wire, not the very thin wire, so you don't break it. Replace the cover on the base unit. If your wire is thin enough you can just have it stick out somewhere on the bottom of the crack, without making a hole or slot for it.

A MUST HAVE!!
We keep the unit on the side crib rail and the vibrator under the mattress. Plays music, nature sounds, or a heartbeat too. Can set to turn on automatically when baby cries. Works like a dream! We usually set it to the lowest setting vibration (she's 20lbs now) and the lowest volume for the music to turn on automatically if she cries. Calms her and puts her right back to sleep! Since it doesn't play every night, she's not 'addicted' and mom and dad don't need to get up to comfort her! We use this with the Summer Infant Handheld color monitor. Both work perfect; the monitor's camera is on the back crib rail at the center, about 16 inches from the crib vibrator controls and about 24" from the vibrator itself. We have not experienced any problems with either. Both operate perfectly simultaneously; no interference. Baby has used since birth (pack and play had a vibrator - baby slept in bassinet / changing station for the first few wks and was gently rocked to sleep there; this was a great help tranistioning her to her crib!). Unit is almost a year old and well worth the few dollars. Here's to a good night's rest for all!!
PS - our baby was not colicky, so I don't know if this will help your cause...

After my first son slept in my bed until 18 months, I knew I had to do something different this time around, but since I'm nursing, I put baby #2 in his bouncer seat next to my bed. He's 3 weeks old now, and I'm trying to transition him into the crib at least for naps. I saw this item at Target, and thought it was an ingenious idea. Well, the sounds are great, my remote feature works fine, and since we have an all-digital and not a 49 mHz monitor, it doesn't cause interference, but what I can't figure out is how to make it vibrate quietly. When the vibration unit is turned on, there is a loud noise as if it's hitting against something. I tried wrapping the unit in a towel, thinking it was hitting against the metal mattress support, but it still makes the loud noise. All I can figure is that the noise is the inside of the vibration unit vibrating. It annoys me, but doesn't seem to bother my son, and he will now sleep (for naps) in his crib. I may try to exchange it and see if the noise goes away, otherwise, I'll keep it just for some sanity and a baby-free bed. :)
