4.00 rating Arm's reach Mini Co-Sleeper by Piers Howe on February 20, 2010
Works as advertised. The fabric on the sides cannot be removed to be washed whereas they can be on the larger version.
5.00 rating Love it ! by Christy Wood on January 8, 2010
Small and safe. I have a 3 yr old and 11 month old around and feel safe with baby in it sleeping. It's nice I can move it to room to room to let my husband sleep. It's well ventilated. Will out grow 3 to 4 months. Helps keep 11 month old in the crib longer.
5.00 rating a great helper by Mommy, Winthrop, NC on January 1, 2004
This is such a great buy. It looks good and is very sturdy, great color too. It is NOT easy to take down or even to convert from a bassinet to a co-sleeper and the directions do not specify how to do it. After about 40 minutes I figured out that you need to push on the buttons and LIFT the bar at the same time in order for it to colapse, not push down on it. Highly recommend.
5.00 rating A Great Purchase by Sarah, Muncie, IN on January 1, 2004
Ever since I saw this, I wanted one. I loved the idea of having my baby right next to me without actually being in our bed. She was close for night time feedings and I didn't have to get out of bed to peak at her or comfort her. Then it turned out that our baby had sleep apnea and had to be on a monitor for six months. Having her within reach was literally a lifesaver for those times when the monitor wasn't enough to rouse her to breathe. She's 15 months old now, but the Co-Sleeper is in storage, waiting for our next child.
5.00 rating FORGET Bassinetts, the Co-sleeper is BETTER! by Poppy, Hamilton, CT on January 1, 2004
This bed is not just for c-section mommies. I did not have a c-section but we did receive this co-sleeper for our 1st child and we LOVE it! This is for all those 1st time mommies who want to sleep at ease by being able to simply reach their arms out and touch your baby or to simply hear your baby breathe. The co-sleeper is the BEST present a new mom could have to ease her 1st time worries with her newborn child.
5.00 rating Good Buy by Jess, Phoenix, AZ on January 1, 2004
I would have given the co-sleeper 5 stars, but its REALLY hard to fold down and put back up. I never folded it down because of the hassle. Other than that, my baby slept in it confortably until he was 4 1/2 months old.
4.00 rating Do some research first! by Allie, Sarasota, Florida on January 1, 2004
So I agree that the co-sleeper is a good idea. It sits next to your bed, all you have to do is just reach down and get your baby. It's very convienient and I love it. I didn't have a C-section, so I'm sure women who have, love it even more. Here's the thing. I'm pretty sure you can just buy a bassinet (for less money) and put it next to your bed. Right? Just a thought. But it IS great, except for how RIDICULOUSLY difficult it is to take down. Also, unlike the original size co-sleeper, it's pretty much worthless after you use it as a co-sleeper. You can't use it as a play-yard or anything. Do some research before you buy this pricey item.
