How to Choose a Co Sleeper for Baby?

The biggest decision you make when you get pregnant is where your baby will sleep. When it comes to baby sleeping options, there is a few choices to make; will you choose; a co-sleeper, bassinet and crib, all or none?

Today, the question arises which one is better between a co-sleeper or a bassinet? I’ve explained in my first article the difference between a bassinet and a co-sleeper but I’m going to repeat the same facts again as today we will be addressing the advantages of buying a co-sleeper for your newborn baby.

A co-sleeper is traditionally favored by some new parents as it can be attached to the bed on which you sleep. Which, in turn, makes it easier for you to feed your baby without getting up from your bed at night. Plus alot of parents like to be close to their baby, without having to place the baby in their bed.

However, bassinets are much more advanced versions of co-sleepers as they often come with built-in lights, vibrations and sounds. A bassinet can easily be used to move around your baby, since, it’s single and separate. With bassinets, it isn’t that easy to access your toddler as it is with a co-sleeper and bassinets are almost similar to a crib when it comes to design.

Earnestly, I can’t put a finger on which one is better, since, it all depends on what you personally prefer. If you have faith in co-sleeping with your little bubba, a co-sleeper will be a good choice for you. But if you want your child to sleep all on its own with some pretty nice built-in entertainment, a bassinet might be just the right baby bed for your situation.

Works Easy, Peasy, Lemon Squeezy

There are no better words to appreciate the Arm’s Reach Concepts Cambria Co-Sleeper which has multi-uses, since, it is a bassinet, co-sleeper and a portable crib – all in one! Although looking more like a bassinet, it serves the functionality of a co-sleeper which a droppable side for each to reach access from the side of your bed. I used to hear my friend’s tales about waking up at night to go to the nursery to feed their baby and the thought of leaving my bed sent shivers down my body. Since, I lead a hectic life and getting proper sleep is essential. Though, with this product I faced no such problems. I simply strap the baby next to me, as near as I can, even I get to hear him snoring and a single grunt from him wakes me up – ready to feed.

Worth The Bucks

The DockATot Deluxe Dock Co-sleeper, turned out to be a magical product for me. The small bed feels so soft that I don’t need to add any extra sheets on top and my baby gets to snuggle so perfectly in it. It is great for positioning my baby in the middle of the bed, without the fear of squishing him over. The design of this, simply prevents the baby from developing a flathead syndrome while he’s slumbering. Worth every penny!

The Safe Choice

Although similar to the above product, this one is higher quality. It never hurts to spend in an Organic product as I believe they are safer than the items that are not organic. This is the reason I bought Snuggle Me Organic The Original Co-Sleeping for my sister when she was pregnant. First of all, I’d like to comment on the perfection of the mattress pad, which is very soft, cushiony and comfortable. With this, you will only at an arm’s reach away from your baby. This product is a great choice for those who wish to keep an eye on their baby 24/7. With some other co-sleepers, it can take almost 90 minutes to propel your baby off to sleep, but this is very snug and it won’t take you longer 30 minutes to lull your baby to sleep.

A Life Changer

I literary lived in a constant fear of SIDS and this anxiety didn’t allow me to sleep until I bought the SwaddleMeBy Your Side Sleeper. This product has given me peace as it provides enough space to keep a watch on my baby, without any worrying feelings taking over my mind. I only get my baby out to nurse, feed and change. The tranquility on my baby’s face certifies that he likes this product a lot and rarely seems demanding while he is tucked in this co-sleeper. Also, I have to commend the sturdy quality of this product as well.

A Budget-Friendly Option

The First Years Close And Secure Sleeper is the best pocket-friendly product in my opinion and it consists of many wonderful built-ins too! I for one, love that it is extremely travel-friendly. The head and foot barrier reduces the risk of entrapment and the quality of the entirety is nice too. It comes with a night light, which makes it uncomplicated for me to perform night feeding. Overall, this product is quite secure.  However, for this one you’ll definitely need some extra sheets to place your child in.


I’ve added the best choices here and you can opt for something that will be the cause for a smile for both you and your kid.
