Co Sleepers for Infants and Babies

Do you want to co-sleep with your baby?

If you'd like to try co-sleeping with your infant, you're probably looking for co sleepers for babies. If you're tired of going several times each and every night to the nursery to calm down your crying baby or to breast-feed him or her, trying co-sleeping might be a great idea. Many parents have found that sleeping in one room with their babies makes many things easier. One of the most important advantages is that parents don't feel the need to go check on their infant simply because their beloved one is in the same room. When the baby starts to cry, one of the parents can get to him/her within a few seconds.

If you aren't familiar with the terminology, co-sleeper is a baby bed that attaches to parents bed or is placed in parents bed (usually between parents). This way the infant sleeps in their own bed, but the parents are as close as they possibly can. That's great for mothers that need to nurse their baby every night once the little one wakes up and starts to cry. When using a co sleeper, the mother can just pick up the baby, feed them and go back to sleep almost immediately, all of this done without leaving the bed.

One extremely important thing - if you use a co-sleeper that attaches to parents bed, you need to attach it!. It usually takes only a couple of minutes, but makes sure your baby is safe and won't fall through the gap between the bed and the co-sleeper (when the baby bed isn't attached to parents bed, it can accidentally move away from it).

Summer Infant By Your Side Sleeper Portable Bedding is one of the co-sleepers that stay in parents bed. It has mesh sides which allow parents to easily see their little one and a metal frame that protects the baby from parents rolling over, so your infant is perfectly secure while sleeping between parents. It's also used as a travel bed (you can fold it). One of its great features is its length - it's longer than most cosleepers, so your little one won't outgrow it within a month or two, but rather in 5-6 month.

The First Years Close and Secure Sleeper is another baby bed that is placed in the parents bed and, since it can be folded, it can be used as a travel baby bed as well. If you're scared that you'll roll over your baby while sleeping, this sleeper will help you. It's meant to be used from birth until your little one rolls over or pushes up on their own.

Please remember that the interior length of this cosleeper is 24 inches (there is a wedge that you can't remove at the end), so it's a great sleeper only for smaller babies. Even if your baby is pretty small, they will outgrow this sleeper within a couple (4-5 months max) of months.

Arm's Reach Mini Co-Sleeper Bassinet is a baby bed that attaches to parents bed - it allows you to lay right next to the infant. It's a mini co-sleeper, so you can use it in a smaller bedroom as well, but please note that using a standard sized co-sleeper will allow you to use it for longer (the baby won't outgrow it that fast). Moving around with this co-sleeper is quite easy because it has wheels on one end. If the co-sleeper isn't tall enough for your bed, you should buy bed risers or Arms Reach extenders (they are a little pricey).

Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper Original Bassinet is another baby bed that attaches to parents bed. If you'll attach this baby bed in an appropriate place, you can soothe your baby with your hand or lift him/her and brest-feed without even having to sit up. If you have a smaller master bedroom, you should consider buying a smaller version.

If the baby bed isn't tall enough, you can buy extenders or bed risers to solve this problem. Please remember that you can use this co sleeper until your baby outgrows it or starts to push on their hands or knees.
