For new parents, being close to their baby is a priority.
That includes being close to the baby during sleeping hours. The notion of
co-sleeping refers to sleeping with your baby close to you, often with a reach
of your arm. Co-sleeping generally means the baby is near, but in a different
bed, a baby side bed.
More parents have been adopting this practice of
co-sleeping, with the infants sleeping nearby in a baby side bed. This aligns
with the guidelines set out by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), which
advises parents not to sleep with a new baby IN a parent’s bed, for obvious
reasons. Let’s look at some of the benefits of co-sleeping arrangements.
Benefits of Co-Sleeping
Ideally, as a baby sleeps in a bedside sleeper next to the
parents’ bed, the baby receives feelings of comfort, security and reassurance.
Having the baby near to the parents’ bed gives the parents the ability to calm
the baby without having to stand up and walk over to an unattached crib across
the room or in another room.
Also, as both baby and parents sleep more soundly, this
shared sleep provides benefits to both. The parent is at arm’s length in order
to calm the baby if it awakes, and slowly massage the baby back to sleep. The
baby gains a more balanced development in the early months of life, without
sleep anxieties or other issues arising.
Find the Right Baby Side Bed
At babybay, we take co-sleeping very seriously. Our babybay baby
side bed is one of the leading co-sleeping beds made for infants, and it’s
largely because of the high attention of quality materials we put into the bed.
We make our babybay beds with untreated solid beech wood.
This means the wood is untreated, made from sustainably managed forests, and is
pollutant-free. Our babybay bed features 10 different adjustable height
positions, giving parents the flexibility to adjust to the parent bed size. If
you want to move the babybay around your living space, you can also pick up an optional
side safety gate and castor wheels set for extra mobility.
