Over the last two decades, Arm’s Reach® Co-Sleeper® bassinets have been praised by some of the most influential OB/GYNs, infant care specialists and professional organizations in the world.
Here are a few of them:
Dr. William Sears is one of the most trusted, influential pediatricians of the last 50 years.
“I believe the safest safest place for most for babies to sleep is in an Arm’s reach bedside co-sleeper bassinet.”
Dr. Sears believes there is an optimal sleep distance from baby to parent. If a mom is breastfeeding, having baby too close can encourage baby to be an “all night” feeder, but having baby too far can cause the infant to become afraid, looking for comfort.
“The co-sleeper seems to be the best distance for mom and baby to get the best night’s sleep.”
Dr. James McKenna is an important expert on infant sleep. He says,
“The Arm's Reach Co-Sleeper brand bassinet represents an appropriate compromise for parents who are unsure whether or not they can provide a safe bedsharing environment for their infants. Mother and baby can enjoy close proximity, which maximizes breast-feeding; and/or important sensory exchanges between the mother and infant, and this side-by-side arrangement maximizes parental mentoring and nighttime interventions.”
