The Best of Both Worlds

Motherhood Community | November 29, 2023

The American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that babies under six months sleep in the same room as their parents or caregivers so they can be carefully monitored, but not in the same bed, to reduce the risk of SIDS. Many parents choose to use a bassinet during these early months to make keeping their baby close easier. For added closeness, many opt for a bedside sleeper. As Motherhood Community explains, many of these models are limited by their construction, and care must be taken to ensure baby’s safety. However, they single out Arm’s Reach and the Clear-Vue® Co-Sleeper® in particular for providing the best of both worlds–bedside sleepers that secure safety to your own bed for the height of proximity, able to convert easily into free-standing baby bassinets for use elsewhere in your room or home on four caster wheels. In addition to the Clear-Vue’s versatility, they love the plentiful storage down below, so diapers, wipes, and other baby essentials go wherever the bassinet goes.

Getting Restful Sleep with a Newborn

Baby Gaga | November 25, 2023

Newborns wake often in the night for feeding and tending. Their little stomachs can’t hold very much, so they need to be fed around the clock. For this and many other reasons, the American Academy of Pediatrics recommends that infants sleep in the same room as their parents or caregivers. Bassinets help many parents do this more easily, as they are more movable that cribs, and take up less space. But to truly get the best night’s healthy sleep for both you and your new baby, reviewers at Baby Gaga named the Arm’s Reach Cambria™ Co-Sleeper® a prospective parent’s best bet. They love the stylish Cambria’s versatility. Lower its breathable mesh side, and you can attach it securely to your own bed, creating a sleeping space for your baby that sits flush with your own bed. This allows you to feed and tend to your baby without getting out of bed, and the added closeness fosters a closer emotional connection with the newest member of your family. Simply raise the side again, and the Cambria makes an excellent free-standing bassinet, with plentiful storage space so diapers, wipes, and other baby essentials go wherever it does!
