Every Rockit comes with a universal bracket. Depending on your needs, this can be permanently installed on the stroller or it can be removed and repositioned if necessary. Afterwards, the Rockit can be inserted and removed effortlessly. You can also purchase spare brackets in case you wish to use one on an alternative stroller, stroller, or buggy. The video at the bottom of the page shows how easy it is to install.
Yes, we think so. We designed a universal bracket (included in every box) to accommodate tubes of all sizes and shapes. To perfect the bracket, our lead designer spent countless hours testing it on more than 40 strollers. There are always new products coming onto the market, so there is no way to give a 100% guarantee on this, but we do think that the Rockit will fit somewhere on any stroller.
You can use the Rockit with children as young as birth up to around 3 years old. As our own children still slept in the stroller when they were three, we believe it will remain useful for several years if purchased at birth.
Definitely. Our rocking motion is based on the way parents rock their children by hand. Studies have shown that the vibration level closely resembles hand rocking from a stroller and that the gentle movement is gentler than walking over paving stones with a stroller.
We designed and tested the Rockit to fit strollers. It provides an extra hand while out and about. Intetk, a global product testing company, tested Rockit extensively for safety and found that a tired parent could mount it on a bar inside the cot, where the baby could catch clothes on it. Our goal is to maintain the highest level of safety for all our products, so we are not able to recommend it for use on cribs or bassinets.
1) Always use Alkaline batteries that are of good quality. Some cheap batteries work only in low-drain items, such as remote controls and clocks. High-quality alkaline batteries, on the other hand, should last longer. 2) Rechargeable batteries can be used. NiMH rechargeable batteries last longer than alkaline batteries and only cost a few cents per recharge. 3) The Rockit should be mounted vertically (with the top button pointing up). If it is mounted horizontally, the battery life will be shortened. 4) Use the dial on the bottom to slow the speed down. There are times when the best rock can be achieved at a slower speed. Fast does not always equal great!
Zed should be placed at the foot end of the mattress. It does not need to be close to your baby because the vibrations travel through the surface of the mattress. It can also be placed on the side of the mattress (please note the battery life will be reduced if not used horizontally).
There are several speeds to choose from, so you can find the one that works the best for your baby's mattress. Modes 1-3 are static speeds that go from slow to fast. Slower speeds are usually the most effective as low-frequency vibrations penetrate further through the mattress - test it out and see what your baby responds to. 4-6 are variable speed modes that emulate acceleration and deceleration, as well as the rumble of tires as they move along the roads. ZED times out after an hour of use, after which a single press switches it back to the last mode used.
Sure. The first three presses of the night light button change the light levels, and the light remains on for one hour. After the fourth press, indicated by two flashes of the light, the light level is set to low and stays on for 12 hours. When the light goes out, a single press will bring up the most recently selected mode.
After an hour, the vibrations always gently fade-out. The goal is to get past the 45 minute sleep cycle and into the next cycle and a deeper sleep. This will help extend naps, nighttime sleep, and ease the transition to a bed. After an hour (or 12 hours in all-night mode) the night light turns off.
With one set of batteries, Zed can run for up to 50 hours. We recommend using high quality alkaline batteries or NiMH rechargeable batteries. It is best to avoid Zinc batteries - make sure your batteries are suitable for "high drain" applications.
Powered by a single LED, the light uses a tiny amount of power. Since the vibration motors require more power to start, if the batteries are low, the motors will shut down first, but the light will continue to operate. Try using new batteries or freshly charged batteries. If this does not work, please contact us or your local distributor.
Wooshh is suitable from birth onwards, but should always be placed well out of reach of the baby / child. This is a great product for children and adults alike. Our intention was to design the set of sounds to include sounds that are also pleasing to adults - the purring cat, ambient music, water and rain sounds in particular. The worst thing you can hear all night is the same looped nursery rhyme! Furthermore, we invested extra to upgrade the sound chip to near CD quality, eliminating the harsh digital distortions common in cheaper sound machines.
There are four volume levels on Wooshh, and you can scroll through them by holding the button down (long press). Release the button to set the desired volume. If you will be setting the volume, it is best to use a constant sound, such as the rain sound. This will help you hear each change clearly. The volume level will be saved until the next time the device is recharged. At the end of the charging process, the device will be set to its lowest level. In order to maximize battery life, we recommend setting the volume at the lowest setting whenever possible.
Wooshh can be turned off with a quick double-press. It can also be turned off with a single press when on the final sound (ambient music). The device will automatically turn off after one hour (normal mode) or after ten hours (all night mode).
You certainly can! With a double press, you can turn on Wooshh for 10 hours. A beep indicates that all-night mode has been selected. If you are using the all-night mode, use the lowest volume setting to reduce exposure to noise and improve battery life.
