Navigating the early weeks and months with a new baby at home can be a challenge, but selecting the right bassinet can help simplify your life. A bassinet provides a safe sleep surface for your newborn right next to you, allowing for easier middle-of-the-night feedings and diaper changes. Given that infants sleep most of the day and night, often in short, disjointed segments, choosing the right sleep gear becomes an essential decision for new parents. Arm's Reach® Co-Sleeper® bassinets have been favored by parents and professionals alike for over two decades, simplifying this choice.
The Trusted Choice of Experts
Pediatrician Dr. William Sears, one of the most influential voices in child care over the last 50 years, has endorsed Arm's Reach® Co-Sleeper® bassinets. He believes that the safest place for babies to sleep is an Arm's Reach® bedside Co-sleeper®bassinet. According to Dr. Sears, there is an optimal sleep distance from baby to parent, which the Co-Sleeper® bassinet perfectly captures, providing the best night's sleep for both mother and baby.
Similarly, Dr. James McKenna, a leading expert on infant sleep, appreciates Arm's Reach® for providing a safe co-sleeping environment. He recognizes that the Co-Sleeper® bassinet facilitates close proximity between mother and baby, maximizing breastfeeding, sensory exchanges, and parental interventions.
Numerous other experts and organizations have endorsed Arm's Reach®, including Dr. JB Warton, D.O., Founder of Care Direct Medical; Elizabeth Pantley, renowned parenting author; Chele Marmet, a lactation specialist; and multiple institutions like the American College of Nurse-Midwives, International Lactation Consultants Association, and International Chiropractic Pediatric Association, among others.
The Benefits of Bassinets
The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies sleep in the same room as their parents for at least the first six months of their life to reduce the risk of sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS). Bassinets are an excellent solution as they are small, portable, and can be placed beside your bed. This setup allows parents to keep an eye on their newborn and attend to their needs without having to leave the bed.
