Q:

Are there any Co-Sleepers that can accommodate larger babies or toddlers?

Hi everyone,

I have a 14-month-old baby who has been co-sleeping with us since he was born. We have been using a traditional co-sleeper that attaches to the side of our bed. However, he has grown quite a bit and no longer fits comfortably in it. We are now looking for options to accommodate his size while still being able to safely co-sleep with him.

Does anyone have any recommendations for co-sleepers that can accommodate larger babies or even toddlers? It would be greatly appreciated if you could share your personal experiences with the product and any pros/cons. Thank you in advance for your help!

Hi everyone!

My 1-year-old son is quite a big baby and we were struggling to find a co-sleeper that would be comfortable for him. After some research, we came across the Arm's Reach Concepts Clear-Vue Co-Sleeper, and I must say that we've been very pleased with it! The co-sleeper is designed to be spacious, and it's pretty easy to assemble.

One thing I love about the Clear-Vue Co-Sleeper is that it's made out of mesh on all sides, which helps to keep my baby cool and comfortable during warmer nights. Also, there's a fold-down panel on one side that makes it easy to check on my baby during the night or see him during the day. It's also easy to clean, and the mattress is pretty comfortable.

However, it should be noted that the co-sleeper is quite large, and it may not fit in every type of bedroom. Also, the mattress that comes with the co-sleeper is quite thin, so we had to purchase a thicker one separately.

Overall, we're quite happy with our purchase of the Arm's Reach Concepts Clear-Vue Co-Sleeper and would definitely recommend it to anyone in need of a co-sleeping solution for their larger baby or toddler.

Hi there!

I had a similar struggle with my 2-year-old daughter, who had outgrown her traditional co-sleeper. After a lot of research and reading reviews, we decided to go with the Hiccapop Day Dreamer Sleeper. We have been using it for a few months now, and it has been a game changer!

One thing we love about the Day Dreamer is that it's designed to be very spacious, large enough to accommodate even two children. The sides are made of mesh material which keeps the baby cool. The sleeper has a 2 inch foam mattress which is much more comfortable than the thin mattresses found in many co-sleepers. The cover is washable and easy to put on and take off.

However, its unique design means it doesn't attach to the bed as traditional co-sleepers do, which may not work for some parents. Additionally, you need to ensure you have enough space for its width.

Overall, we are happy with the Hiccapop Day Dreamer Sleeper and we highly recommend it to parents looking for a spacious and comfortable co-sleeper that can accommodate a bigger baby or even two children. It's definitely worth considering!

Hey there,

I had a similar challenge with my 2-year-old son who had outgrown his co-sleeper. I decided to try out the Baby Delight Snuggle Nest Harmony Portable Infant Sleeper. It's pretty spacious and can easily accommodate larger babies or toddlers as in my case.

This particular co-sleeper is lighter in weight compared to others that I had used before and can fit perfectly in between two parents. I love its firm mattress that provides just the right amount of support for my son so I don't have to worry about him sinking in.

The downside of the Baby Delight Snuggle Nest is its softer sidewalls as it may not be ideal for little ones that are just learning how to sit up. Also, the provided sheets are made of cotton which is not very comfortable on hot nights.

Overall, I am satisfied with the co-sleeper's size, design and capability to accommodate my big baby. It's also easy to pack and carry along since it comes with a sturdy handle.

Hi there,

I had the same issue with my 18-month-old daughter who also outgrew her traditional co-sleeper. After doing some research, we decided to go with the DockATot Deluxe+. This co-sleeper is larger in size and can accommodate bigger babies and toddlers. The materials are also high-quality and breathable, so we don't have to worry about any safety hazards.

My daughter loves it and is very comfortable in it. We also use it for travel since it's easy to transport and gives her a familiar sleeping environment. The only downside is that it's a bit pricey, but I think it's worth the investment for a co-sleeper that she can use for a few years. Overall, we're very happy with our purchase and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a bigger co-sleeper.
