How many items of baby gear can a mama say she uses every day? The Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper is the only thing in the house I can say I use more often than the Safer Bather.
Recent studies suggest that babies sleep more safely in the same room with mama. Placing your baby to sleep in your room helps reduce the risk of SIDS and it also makes life more convenient for the parents. If you are nursing or recovering from a C-section, the Co-Sleeper is a must.
For families that would like to keep baby close, but do not feel comfortable with a family bed, the Arms Reach Co-Sleeper is the perfect solution. Attaching to the bed like a side car, the co-sleeper is a special bassinet that allows you to just reach over to comfort, hold, and lift your baby. The co-sleeper is available in a range of colors to coordinate with your bedding.
Baby Diva has slept in her Arm’s Reach Original Co-Sleeper since I brought her home 8 months ago. I feel safe and secure having her right next to me and I cannot imagine nightly trips to the nursery for feedings.
The Original converts to a playard, bassinet, and changing table. It measures 40 x 28 x 31, weighs 32 lbs. and can hold 30 lbs as a co-sleeper and 50 lbs as a playard.
If you are tight on space, you might consider the Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper Mini. This little wonder weighs under 24 lbs., measures 34 x 20 x 31 and has wheels so you can move it around the house. The mini will safely hold baby up to 23 lbs as a co-sleeper. There is also storage space underneath–perfect for city living.
