Keep Baby Close at Night with a CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet from Arm’s Reach (Review & Giveaway)

Arm's Reach LogoBefore Princess P came into the world, we totally thought that she would end up in her crib during the night. Then, after I got to thinking, making that walk back and fourth from her nursery to our room multiple times a night, sounded tiring for an already sleep-deprived mama. Soon after that thought, we were generously gifted a bassinet so that we could keep her in our room for the first couple of nights. Long story short, she is still in our bed today.

Now don’t get me wrong, I love having her in the bed with us! However, the thought of adding another addition to our family seems, well – crowded! After doing a bit of research, I learned about the CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet from Arm’s Reach and was overjoyed at the thought of baby #2 being so close, but not actually in the bed with us.
CO-SLEEPER brand Mini BassinetThe CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet from Arm’s Reach provides baby with their own separate space while still keeping them close to mom and dad. By attaching securely to the side of the parent’s bed, the CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet from Arm’s Reach promotes bonding, allows parents to easily care for their child and enables parents and baby to sleep more comfortably. Available in a wide variety of styles, colors and fabrics, the Arm’s Reach CO-SLEEPER brand family of products with match your bedroom decor, no matter what the style.

Recently, we were the lucky recipients of a CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach in the toffee color. Upon it’s arrival, I was thinking that I was in for some serious assembly. But, much to my surprise, I opened the box to find the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet fully-assembled and ready to go!

Packaged in a handy carry-bag, the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach is lightweight (24 lbs), convenient and perfect for parents with smaller spaces (34″x 20″x31). It opens very easily (similar to a play-yard) and set-up time is minimal.

Not only does the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach function as a CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet, but it also converts to a free-standing bassinet so that you are able to use it in various parts of your house. Thanks to the two caster wheels on one side, the CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet from Arm’s Reach is easy to move and transport from room to room.

Converting the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach from a CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet to a free standing bassinet is a simple process. First, open the Velcro pocket on the inside and release the 3 straps that go over the bar. Then, you unlock the bottom bar (on the same side) and lift up in the center until it becomes an inverted V. After that, unhook the plastic connector pieces from either side and place them to the top receivers. When the horizontal rial is secured in the top position, the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach can be used as a free standing bassinet.

Inside, the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach features a generous space for baby to sleep, while still not taking up too much space in the parent’s room. Also, the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach comes with a mattress and fitted sheet for added convenience. The included sheet fits snugly on the mattress and the mattress actually attaches underneath the sleeping nest (accessible through the lower storage compartment) for a secure fit.

Along with being a smaller, more compact size, the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach also provides plenty of storage for all of baby’s needs. Not only do you have storage compartments on either side of the CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet that are perfect for diapers, wipes and clothes, but underneath the sleeping nest, there is a generously sized storage space. I think that the underneath storage space is a great place to keep larger items like breastfeeding pillows and even breast pumps.

To use the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet as a CO-SLEEPER bassinet, the lowering bar must be level with or below the top of the adult mattress. In order to use it as a CO-SLEEPER bassinet (if the adult bed is higher than 24″), you will need to raise the CO-SLEEPER brand bassinet by using leg extensions that are sold separately.

Overall, I think that the CO-SLEEPER brand Mini Bassinet from Arm’s Reach is a terrific item that I am sure we will find very useful when it is time for baby #2. I love the fact that it can be used as a CO-SLEEPER brand Bassinet or as a free standing bassinet, making it a great item to have when traveling. I also love all of the extra storage space it provides. Plus, the fact that it sets-up and breaks-down easy, is a great thing.
