Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper Review & Giveaway

by Mama Chocolate on April 6, 2012

There are so many benefits to co-sleeping. Any mother who has been up and down a dozen (or more!) times at night with a fussy newborn can attest to the fact that it is much easier to have your baby at your side to comfort easily, rather than across the room, or even in a separate bedroom.

Besides the convenience for mama, there are other benefits, the most important of which is the fact that babies tend to sleep better when they are closer to you, especially in the early weeks and months.

 


Dr. William Sears
, the well-known pediatrician and author/co-author of many books, including The Baby Sleep Book, lists 7 reasons and benefits of sleeping close to your baby:


Sleeping close to your baby is obviously beneficial and highly recommended by experts…but it is critical that it is done safely!

On the Arm’s Reach website, leading expert Dr. James McKenna has a great article on co-sleeping safely with an infant. I know I have always had concerns about sleeping with my baby actually in bed with me. The few times I have tried, (out of desperation on hard night with a newborn,) if I sleep at all, I do not sleep well, since I am worried about rolling onto or suffocated my precious bundle with blankets or pillows or something. Or even just bumping her as I move in my sleep and God-forbid, waking her up!

The Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper features all the safety precautions you could possibly imagine and fits every requirement listed by Drs. McKenna and Sears.

In preparation for my review of their Curved Mini Co-Sleeper, I talked to Jake from Arm’s Reach, and it was refreshing to hear how excited they are about their products and how dedicated they are to the safety of our babies, as well as our convenience!

What’s more, they are working hard to provide options suited for every household, accommodating your room size, decor style and price range!


Just a few of the available options!

Arm’s Reach’s co-sleepers easily convert into bassinets if and/or when you decide to move it away from your bed. I have used one of their Original Co-Sleepers with my girls and loved this feature.

After the first two months or so, when my girls were sleeping longer at night, and I was only needing to get up once, maybe twice, I could move the co-sleeper over to a nearby corner of our room, making it easier for me to access my bed again,  (I have a very narrow spot between my side of the bed and my desk.)



I am thrilled to have the Curved Mini for this baby. The Mini is significantly smaller and is so much more suited to the way our bedroom is set up! Not only that, but the Mini is easier to travel with! When I go on our annual girls’ beach trip with my family later this year with my little one, it will be easy to fit this co-sleeper in the room with me, no matter how small the space is.

Setting up the Co-Sleeper is a simple process, and a quick look through the illustrated instructions gives you all you need to know to get started!

While we found it uncomplicated to set up, (the process is very straight-forward,) some steps are not easy. Getting the sides to snap up into place was pretty difficult, as well as getting them to snap down when you are collapsing the bed. I struggled with this step for a long time the first time, and then made John do it after that. ;-) It seems mostly to just require a lot of hand strength, and when I discussed this with Jake from Arm’s Reach, he explained that this feature is part of what keeps the bed completely safe.

This makes sense to me, and of course, I’m willing to put up with a bit of difficulty in set-up and take-down if it ensures my precious baby’s safety!

The Co-Sleeper comes in a zippered case and the mattress piece conveniently folds around the rest of the bed when packed away.

Snap the top bars up first, making sure they are rigid and firmly in place before locking the bottom bars

Sometimes you have to jerk them up quickly to get them to snap into position:

After all four top bars are locked into place, lock down the bottom bars. You can use or hands or your foot to do this. We found it was helpful to turn the bed completely upside down to get better leverage, since, as I mentioned, it is pretty difficult to get it to actually snap into its position.

Put the provided sheet on the mattress, lay it in, and voila! It is up!

It is important for safety reasons to have the crib at the perfect height next to your bed, so take a look at the measurements of the co-sleeper you choose, and then at the height of your bed.

After you add the enclosed feet and wheels, the mattress of the co-sleeper should be 4 inches below the top of your mattress.

There are two wheels for one end of the co-sleeper, and two feet for the other, making it easy to move it around the house as needed. There are brakes on the wheels that you should set once the co-sleeper is in place to keep it from rolling.

If you have a tall bed or mattress you may need to order their leg extension kit! In 2 inch increments, you can easily raise the co-sleeper up to 6 more inches with this kit.

You can add the wheels and other included feet onto the bottom of these extensions. The extensions should only be used when the co-sleeper is attached to an adult bed.

The final step in setting up your Arm’s Reach C0-Sleeper is to configure the strap attachment.

Simpler than it probably looks at first, you slide the straps under your adult bed mattress, fitting the large plastic square firmly against the opposite side of the bed.

Back over on the co-sleeper side, you snap the straps into the corresponding latch on the co-sleeper bed itself. The straps are adjustable and should be tightened until they are holding the co-sleeper firmly up against the adult mattress. This prevents any possibilities of a gap happening in between the two beds and rolling-out or dropped babies!

Here we have Katie’s baby doll, (currently answering to “Steven”) demonstrating the set-up and installed co-sleeper!

And here, we have the much more precious, hours-old Calvin, my nephew, showing it off. You can also see the super-soft “Nature’s Perfect” sheet that was sent along with the co-sleeper.

At the bottom, on the back of the co-sleeper, there is a zipper to allow you to conveniently store miscellaneous baby items in the lower level.

This is a great spot for diapers, clothes, extra sheets, and other essentials.

Your 3-year-old may also think it’s a great hiding spot, so beware. ;-)

When you are ready to move the crib away from your bed, the conversion process is simple.

It is important to make sure you remove any leg extensions when you detach the bassinet from the adult bed.
They are designed only to be used when the co-sleeper is supported by the bed and straps.

To raise the side bar, partially fold down that side by pressing the middle tabs and pushing down.

Then, 1.) pull the tab and lift as directed to detach it from its original plastic receiver on each side, 2.) unlatch the straps holding the extra fabric down, 3.) lift up the whole bar and slide the plastic connector into the upper plastic receiver, and 4.) tuck the loose straps into the special pockets provided on the side and close the velcro on the pockets, making quick and tidy work of your co-sleeper-to-bassinet transformation!

I did co-sleep, with both of my older daughters (7 and 4 now), for their first 1-2 years of life, so I can speak from some experience. It was critical to establishing my supply when breastfeeding in the early weeks, and after it was simply more convenient and allowed both of us to manage more sleep. Arm’s Reach would be super handy (I am expecting number 3 in September) because I did find with my daughters there wasn’t quite enough room for my husband, myself, and baby – he often retreated for the couch. Arm’s Reach would allow a more comfortable night’s sleep for all of us.

I have always done co-sleeping with babies. It makes it a lot easier to nurse and get rest that mommy’s get so little of those first months. The great thing about co-sleepers is the safety for baby to be close, mommy have convenience, and not taking up so much space as a crib.

I co-slept with my youngest for a long time via a king sized bed and a bed rail. Now that we have a queen bed and I plan to co-sleep as long as possible this would help to make sure baby is safe and hubby can get a good nights rest as he was always semi awake with the baby in the bed.

I coslept with my 20mo daughter and loved it. I’m due in July with baby girl #2 and again I’d love to co-sleep. This time around sleeping arrangements are different and my husband comes home in the early morning hours and he isn’t the most aware sleeper because of it. (he drives 3 hours and works a 12 hour shift) this would help us co-sleep in a safer way.

I have a travel crib that we used for our first child, and he slept in the bed with us sometimes, but our second child would never settle down in our bed – she would only sleep in the swing :-(
I am considering an arm’s reach co-sleeper because with the 2 older children, we are getting so much less sleep, and I am concerned that my husband and I would sleep too soundly to have the new baby (due in Sept) in the bed with us – it has always worried me, but it worked well with our first child. With the Arm’s Reach, I would be able to just reach over and get her whenever she was hungry, and just gently place her back into her space when I was ready to.

I love to co-sleep but would definitely sleep better with her in her own sleeper attached to the bed within reach. In the bed is too close and the bassinette is having to actually get up in the middle of the night to get the baby!

At the moment since I’m nursing our 3 month old, we’re co-sleeping, to save my sanity of having to get up and trudge to her room every couple hours during the night. But even though my husband likes having her close, he doesn’t like having her in our bed. He’s so scared that he’ll roll on her.

I am way past child-bearing age. My niece is pregnant now. I didn’t co-sleep when my son was a baby but my son’s bassinet was next to my bed for the first few weeks. Unfortunately, he was an active baby and would move it across the floor and it squeaked very loudly. I had to put him in his room for my sanity. I know that sounds unreal but it’s true.

I kind of co-sleep for the first couple of months at least. My kiddos have gotten colds when they are 2 weeks old and that leaves me sleeping with them out in the front room or constantly checking on them until I’m comfortable enough for them to be on their own. But we always nap together!

We started our 2yr old out in a pack n play bassinet, then due to feeding schedules and fussiness we moved the basket between us…thankfully we have a king size bed. After 10 months she was able to sleep in her own room/crib. By 2yrs of age she has moved up to a toddler bed. A few times a week she will either come in with her blankets to snuggle before getting up for the day, or she will decided to nap in the “big” bed.

This next child WILL have a better set up. Husband is possessive of his sleep space.

We didn’t start off bed sharing but a week after we got home from the hospital, I pulled something from my c-section and had so much pain. My husband suggested bringing DS into bed with us. Now at 13 months, he still will join us halfway through the night (since he nurses once yet). It made it so much easier to nurse when he was in bed with us since I didn’t have to crawl out of bed to do it.

We co-slept with our now, 3yr old son & it was fantastic. He was in an Arm’s Reach C0-sleeper until the day he was 6mos old, when we then, moved him to his crib. It made my husband & I feel so much safer. Especially b/c my little guy had horrible acid reflux & tummy issues & wouldn’t sleep for more than roughly 40minutes at a time throughout the night for about 5 months. We thought we would never sleep again. This made it so much easier.

I would love this for my daughter. She just had a baby and this would be a lifesaver for her. She likes the baby in the room with her, but doesn’t have room for a full size crib.

when I had my first one, I remeber what a pain (literally) it was to have to stand up and lean over to pick him up out of the pack and play to nurse in the middle of the night. I knew right there and then if I ever had another baby, I would absolutely need a Co-sleeper. Since finding out that I am expecting number 2, All I have been thinking about is how much easier night nursings when I have a co-sleeper!

Not right now but I intend to for the first few months. I’m 38 weeks right now ;)

Yes, we co-sleep with our 2lilones and still do. This would be so convenient.

This would be for my daughter to use with my grandson. He is in a bassinet next to the bed now, but I know she wants to move to a co-sleeper when he grows.

We are a cosleeping family and this would make me feel so much safer!

We do cosleep! I have always felt more bonded to my babies this way

Missy Lynnh May 4, 2012 at 6:42 pm

We do for about the first 6 months- until they’re not waking much at night for feedings anymore.

We co-slept a little with Baby#1 (now 3 years old) in between my husband and I. However, my husband now often has to take sleeping pills so we won’t be able to share our bed with Baby#2 due this summer. This product would give me the convience of co-sleeping while keeping the baby out of danger.

We are a co sleeping family and it is has been nice, all the bonding feel so close and safe! but I never used a Arms Reach Co Sleeper and this would be perfect! Will be needing it soon. Thanks for the chance!

I do not co-sleep. Although this set-up looks pretty good. Thanks!

We co-sleep in the room just not the same bed. I found my kids sleep better at night.

We have co-slept with all our children and will with our new baby as well. The co-sleeper will really help on the nights that he is fast a sleep and I will be able to move him

I cosleep with my lo, but it would be a lot safer to co sleep with a co-sleeper! And I’d definitely use it for my next lo. <3

I love co sleeping with my babies. With the cosleeper I wouldn’t have to worry about baby falling off the bed or about having alone time with my husband. :)

I currently co-sleep with my 3 month old baby girl! Would love the Arms Reach co-sleeper!

Rachel Rodman-Kunkler May 7, 2012 at 2:34 pm

Yes, we co sleep. This would work out awesome because I have to have a c section and lifting is really hard when recovering.

Lauren B. May 7, 2012 at 2:39 pm

We co-slept with our daughter and definitely agree it was one of the best decisions we made, she was an awesome sleeper from then on! I would have loved to have one of these for her, but I would definitely love to have one for baby #2!!

Bonnie May 7, 2012 at 2:41 pm

I have done both, coslept a bit and had them in a bassinet near my bed. I slept so much better when they were not in my bed, they slept so much better with me. I am due in September and have been looking around for a replacement for the pack and play we have now, this would be awesome.

I’ll be having my first in September! I have been looking for something JUST like this!

when you co sleep you have to take all the pillows and comforters off the bed, or at least I do, and it makes for a restless sleep

Reply

Crystal May 7, 2012 at 5:55 pm

We use the same cradle for our boys as my parents used for their 6 kids and my grandparents used for their 8. It might be on its last legs. :-) This would be awesome for baby number 3!

Jane H May 7, 2012 at 6:25 pm

We don’t co-sleep. In fact I had never thought of it until now. Perhaps because I am such a light sleeper.

Sometimes if she is having a tough night but it makes her feel better and me knowing she is ok.

I co slept with both of my children,I think would be winderful for a newborn. I was always hard to transition them into the crib after falling asleep while feeding.
