It can be overwhelming to shop for a bassinet and select just the right one. You want to find something that is perfect for your new baby and also fits the practical needs of your space, bed, and how you live. The Arm's Reach® Co-Sleeper® Baby Bassinet was founded 25 years ago and was the first patented co-sleeping product on the market that attaches securely to a parent’s bed. This means that the company has decades of experience to create a series of bassinets that are just right for you and your family.
Parents with a newborn gravitated towards Arm’s Reach Co-sleeper bassinets because it encourages healthy bonding. It helps when breastfeeding because the baby is so close to the mother and is especially helpful when a mom has had a c-section. For preemies it’s also a good idea since they may get more at night for feedings and being comforted. A parent can just reach out and touch their baby to soothe before the baby wakes up completely.
Below is an overview of the most popular Arm’s Reach Co-sleper bassinets and what makes them unique:
