Could Arm's Reach Have The Answer To Save Co-Sleeping?

Now, you may have noticed recently that there's been quite a bit of discussion on ParentDish UK about co-sleeping. Many of our own writers and readers have come 'out of the closet' as co-sleepers due to its ability to allow a mother instant access to her baby at all times.

On the other side of the discussion is a barrage of scientists and experts who claim co-sleeping poses a high SIDS risk.

There are positives and negatives to co-sleeping, but Arm's Reach believe they have created a product to ensure new mothers can get the benefits without risking their babies health.

The Universal Co-sleeper is an attachable cot with a drop down side that you can pop next to the bed for easy access.

The Universal Co-Sleeper is particularly useful for new mothers recovering from a caesarean section, but really it can be used for any mothers that prefer to co-sleep for various reasons. The cot means that at any point during the night, the baby is in a safe environment, but can still be reached at a moments notice.

It even comes with deep pockets to pop all your nappies, wipes and baby kit in. Once the baby grows up a bit, you can convert it into a playpen, a changing mat and a travel cot.

You can buy the Arm's Reach Co-Sleepers from £189 for the mini and £239 for the standard.
