Love this: Chicco Next2Me crib

Every now and again you see a baby product that makes you wonder how you ever managed without one.  I saw the Chicco Next2Me crib at The Baby Show a week or two ago and loved it.

 
Chicco Next2Me is a crib that sits at bed height, right next to your bed.  It has adjustable height to fit most beds and the feet move, so it even works with divan beds - how great is that?  Baby sleeps in the crib right next to you while you're (hopefully asleep)

 in your own bed.  This can only help with feeding, worry and keeping baby safe.  It's a great solution if you're not comfortable with co-sleeping but want baby very close.



Here's two on show at The Baby Show, NEC.  There were lots of people looking at them whenever I looked at the Chicco stand.  I couldn't help wonder why this hadn't been invented sooner!


 
The crib can be packed away into a storage bag which makes it great for use at home or away.  It has a hooking system to attach to parents' bed and all four sides can be used, or just three as needed.

The feature I loved and would've been great particularly for our son, is that one side can be slightly raised - perfect for babies who need their head above their feet to help with congestion or reflux.  Our son was a winter baby and had a perma-cold.  This would've helped a lot!


I so wish I'd had one of these when our son and baby girl were small babies.  It would've been a MUCH better solution to the moses basket on the floor option we took! 

It's suitable from birth until around six months and at around £149.99, I think this is really great value.  Let's face it, any extra sleep you can possibly get in the first few months of having a baby is priceless!

Baby girl loved it too!

 


Id love to know what you think of the Chicco Next2Me crib - did you find it helpful?

  2. This looks great! We have a holiday home in Scotland so it would be a good to keep one over there. I like the fact it has legs.

  6. Oh, I like these...lots of good features (although I'd still be paranoid about baby slipping out)...I like the idea of sleeping with baby but wouldn't want to risk anything bad happening, perfect compromise.

  16. I wish we would have gotten one of these bedside cribs few years ago, especially night feeds would have been so much easier for both of us, me and the baby. Unfortunately there's no point anymore as our last child is 3 months old so will have to stick to the sliding crib we have next to our bed x
