    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: convenient! great design!
    Cons: first-time setup, hard mattress

    Summary: The big debate: Bassinet vs. Crib Last spring before our son was born we were trying to decide what he should sleep in. Crib? Seemed too big and far away from us... Bassinet? Most of the ones we saw were round and bulky- just not for us... AH ... read more

  • Very nice but overpriced

    May 1, 2009 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Keeps baby close by, comfortable
    Cons: Fabric lining can not be washed, accessories very expensive

    Summary: I knew that I wanted to keep my second child very close by at night.  She was born prematurely and prone to apnea, so I wanted to see her without sitting up, and to be able to touch her without shifting.  I found a mini co-sleeper at a ... read more

    Aug 17, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Compact, easy to move around the house
    Cons: Short life span: can't use once baby pushes up or weighs 23 lbs.(about 5 months)

    Summary: One of our experienced parent-friends highly recommended that I get a co-sleeper when I was pregnant with my first child. This is a friend my husband trusts, so it was the only item he insisted that we get for the baby. Asking my husband to go shopping ... read more

  • great company, great product

    May 3, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: great to have for newborns, fits in smaller rooms, great company.
    Cons: hard to break down,

    Summary: I purchased this before my son was born (around may) we used it as a co-sleeper from the time he was born (june) till about the end of the year when he transitioned him to his crib. It was relatively easy to put together. It was perfect for us ... read more

  • Great for Safe Co-Sleeping

    Mar 30, 2008 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Pretty high weight limit, doesn't take up much space.
    Cons: Bad sheet, rather expensive.

    Summary: It is important for an infant to sleep in the same room as his/her parents during the first several months of life. If you are a paranoid parent like I am, and you wake up to make sure your baby is still breathing in the middle of the night, this is the ... read more

  • Better than a crib, better than a bassinet.

    Feb 23, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Functional, affordable, and can be used through multiple children.
    Cons: Because it's so specialized, any accessories are more expensive.

    Summary: My husband and I are huge Dr. Sears fans because we subscribe to the concept of attachment parenting. It has worked wonders in all 3 of our children. It is not easy to find things that make attachment parenting easier because it is not an easy concept ... read more

  • What would I do without this?

    Feb 19, 2008 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Safe, separate, but close-by sleeping for baby, solid construction, provides peace of mind
    Cons: limited colors, a little difficult to collapse, limited time use as it's only a bassinet

    Summary: This is possibly my most treasured baby gear item from the first few days of my baby's life! We used it a total of 7 months and loved it! It was wonderful to be so close to our baby that I could literally roll over and put my hand on her or just listen ... read more

  • Nice Idea

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Like the idea behind the produce
    Cons: Bad instructions, not really used as the product was intended

    Summary: We are a big time attachment parenting family that is pro breastfeeding so the purchase of the Arm's Reach Mini Co-Sleeper seemed like a no-brainer for us. To be honest we use it as a changing table and our son sleeps in our bed. From day one he knew ... read more

  • I love it!

    Oct 7, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: it's portable, easy to pack up and travel with.
    Cons: It only is meant for babies up to 6 months or 25 pounds.

    Summary: My husband and I read up all we could about attachment parenting, and really wanted our little girl to be close to us. Our bed really is not that big, so we feared that we wouldn't have the space. We received the co-sleeper as a registry gift, and I ... read more

    Pros: keeps baby within reach, perfect size, easy to set up
    Cons: sleeping pad could be better, hard to take down

    Summary: I received the Mini Co-Sleeper as a gift for my first baby. I was so excited about using it that I set it up a month before my daughter was born. The sleeper was easy to set up, but I found I had to use more effort to take it back down. The little ... read more

    Aug 1, 2007 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: easy view and access to baby, good storage, portable, peace of mind
    Cons: difficult to assemble and collapse, baby outgrows it quickly

    Summary: Why the co-sleeper? We bought the co-sleeper with the impending arrival of our first baby at the advice of my sister, who was also expecting at the same time. Both of us were supporters of the idea of attachment parenting, planned to nurse our babies ... read more

  • Makes breastfeeding easy

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to set up, pockets to hold diapers, and large storage below.
    Cons: The sheet can't go in the dryer and extension legs are sold separately.

    Summary: We started using the co-sleeper the day we brought our daughter home from the hospital. From day 1, it was the perfect way to keep the baby close in order to breastfeed without having her in our bed with us. We looked at other sleeping options such as ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Small size, generous space underneath holds diapers, clothing plus more!Very portable too.
    Cons: High price tag.

    Summary: When I was pregnant I was looking for something that would allow me to keep my baby close. I liked the idea of cosleeping but didn't want her actually in the bed with me-the fear of suffocating her would never allow me to get any sleep. The Arm's Reach ... read more

    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Recommend to moms everywhere!
    Cons: baby platform could be a bit higher...but no big deal.

    Summary: We bought this after much debate. I do a borderline ridiculous amount of research before buying just about anything, and this is no different. We were told about the co-sleeper by a friend who had used one. Being a first time mom, I thought this was ... read more

  • Wonderful for keeping baby near and safe!

    Oct 16, 2006 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Ingenius idea for co-sleeping parents; very portable and light
    Cons: Price; folding mechanism is tricky; fabric can get dirty; cannot attach some mobiles to it

    Summary: My colicky baby refused to sleep in our borrowed bassinet at about 3 weeks of age. She would only sleep in my arms -- while I was sitting up. Needless to say, sleeping while sitting up and nursing a newborn around the clock was sheer hell. But at ... read more

    Pros: Great for 2nd child, sturdy, not unattractive
    Cons: A bit pricy when you consider how briefly you'll use this

    Summary: We bought the mini cosleeper for our second child, to give our 2-year old a little more time in his crib. We found this product to be well constructed, great for a second child. Since many of the fussier-looking options (most bassinets look like ... read more

    Dec 10, 2005 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: everything!! piece of mind!
    Cons: skimpy pad, fixed this with a contour changing pad/mattress

    Summary: I absolutely love my co-sleeper mini - it attaches to the side of mom & dad's bed with straps that go between the mattress & box spring - one side of the "mini" comes down so that the cosleeper is at the level of your bed - the co-sleeper gives you the ... read more

    Cons: Must buy extra sheets, leg extensions sold separately, Sheets snag on clothes in wash

    Summary: I love this bed. I actually had my mother ship it to me from the States to Finland because I wanted to have my baby sleep next to me. You get such peace of mind when you can check on your baby just by looking over to your side. You can lay your hand on ... read more

    Pros: easy to set up and fits in small spaces
    Cons: need to buy leg ext. kit & extra sheets expensive

    Summary: I'm expecting my second child and I knew that I wanted a co-sleeper this time around. My first slept in bed with us, but I always wished I had a place to put him where I could still touch him, but feel more comfortable stretching out. This is going to be ... read more

    Cons: Your baby might not want to sleep in it

    Summary: I bought the mini co-sleeper because we had co-slept with our first 3 children and I thought this would be a great way to sleep with our baby. I had trouble getting my other children to sleep in a bassinet...they screamed and fussed as soon as we laid ... read more
