The bedside sleeper is the perfect option for new parents who want to safely keep their newborn close after they come home from the hospital.
This compact infant bed stays close to the parent’s bed, giving families the ability to monitor their newborn throughout the night and provide quick assistance if necessary. With bedside sleepers, bed-sharing is done safely – keeping babies in their own sleep space – while allowing for a sense of security, comfort, and closer connection. Additionally, bedside sleepers help prolong independent sleeping as the baby adjusts from being coslept in the beginning months to sleeping independently later on. Designed to be used for about 5 months or until your baby can roll over, these sleepers will easily transition from room to room so that families can have peace of mind when they travel with their babies. The features and benefits of bedside sleepers are invaluable to many new parents and provide an easy way to help ease common concerns when it comes to nighttime care.
In the past few years, quite a few styles have been introduced. Some fold down for easy access, have different levels of adjustability, and include music and vibration, storage, and organic materials. We compiled a list of our favorites and their features to help you choose the one that is the best for your space and lifestyle.
