So, here we will be looking at baby sleeper beds, why you should want one and where you can find them. I have looked at various different brands and unlike other types of baby apparatus there is quite a difference in quality, but not necessarily in price if you know where to look. Which is great for us parents as we can can pick up a top quality Co-baby sleeper for a very reasonable price. The best value for your money in my view is the BabyLo Cozi Sleeper from Amazon.
SO WHY SHOULD YOU GET ONE?
Let’s look at when you would look to use one first for a moment, when your baby is outgrowing their Moses basket, it is time to start thinking about where your baby should sleep next. Now this is completely your choice, but should ideally avoid your baby sleeping with you at this stage. The safest scenario is for your little one to be sleeping in the same room as you, but in their own bed. Don’t just take my word for it, read up on safe sleeping babies, on one of my other posts.
This is where the BabyLo Cozi Sleeper, or the co-sleeping crib as they are also sometimes called, really come in. You can get most at a decent size, they usually recommend you be used for up to 9kgs, which is normally when baby is about 5-6 months. Once your baby can sit up or crawl on their own it is time to move them to a cot bed of some sort.
IT’S NICE TO HAVE YOUR BABY CLOSE, RIGHT?
The main reason to have a baby sleeper is that you can have baby’s bed right next to you without having to share bed sheets or covers, and there by reducing the chances of SIDS, (sudden infant death syndrome), if you were sharing a bed with them. It could be that you don’t want to use a Moses basKet and just go straight for the co-sleeper.
It’s a good feeling to be close to your baby, and the added benefit is that if you are breast feeding then baby is right there next to you. Also, if you had a tough birth, like my wife, who lost a lot of blood, and had stitches afterwards, it is actually really beneficial to have easy access to your baby when they need feeding or comforting in the night.
WHERE CAN YOU FIND A GREAT CO-SLEEPER FOR YOUR BABY?
As most parents know there will be more than a few places to find a baby apparatus, I would recommend amazon as a good place to start your search, simply because they have such a large selection, although by no means all, of baby sleepers to choose from. As I have stated my choice is the BabyLo Cozi Sleeper, featured here. Which for the price is in my view a very good option as it comes with:
. 2 FREE sheets worth £25
. A storage bag
. An easy to use zip side down panel for when fixing next to parents bed, 2 wheels are attached so you can move it from room to room with more ease.
. Multi height options on both sides allow you to have your sleeper at an inclined angle if you wish, perhaps to help with congested breathing and reflux.
. It is usable form birth up to 9kgs.
. It comes with a comfortable quality mattress and 2 clip on straps for securing to your bed. It has a soft quilt lining on the sides with mesh for easy viewing of your child.
You can view my choice of baby sleeper, and also compare similar brands and designs yourself and decide if a BabyLo Cozi Sleeper is right for you and your baby clicking any of the links or pictures on this page.
