What is a Bedside Crib?

A bedside crib, or co-sleeper as they are sometimes called, is a type of crib intended to be used next to the parent's bed. It secures the adult mattress with one side that drops down to allow easy access to your little one from your bed. 

It is the ideal way of keeping your baby close by while still allowing them to sleep in a separate bed. For anxious parents of newborns, this type of sleeping product may be your best choice when starting as a new parent. You and your baby get your own sleeping space, but they are still there, right by your side.

Benefits of a Bedside Crib

A benefit of a bedside crib is that it is generally a bit larger than a bassinet. It also allows you to keep your baby at your bedside, giving you the comfort that your baby is nearby and the convenience of tending to them when they need you. Co-sleepers are usually on lockable casters, making moving them around a room or other rooms easier than cribs or bassinets, which often need to be lifted. 

They are also fairly versatile as they can be used independently as a crib and placed anywhere when not used in the co-sleeping setup. In addition, there is often storage space underneath for you to keep all the sleeping essentials on hand.

Are Bedside Cribs Safe?

Bedside cribs are safe as long as you choose one suitable for your needs and meets all current regulations for sale in the US. The most important thing is that the bedside crib is securely attached to the parent's bed and sits flush with the mattress, with no gap between the crib and the parent's bed. 

In general, bedside cribs come with straps to allow for a secure fitting to the main bed. They also must be height adjustable so that the crib height can match the mattress height.

Another important thing is always following a manufacturer's guidelines and warnings for safe use of their particular bedside crib and always reading the instruction user manual.

The bedside crib below should only be considered if it can be used as a standalone crib and not a bedside sleeper.

Although the above crib looks cute, it may not be safe, as the mattress cannot sit flush with the adult bed, leaving a gap which the baby may fall into. It also doesn't appear height-adjustable, meaning there is a height difference between the two mattresses.

Points to Consider when Choosing a Bedside Crib

Below are some essential points to think over when choosing your bedside sleeper.

Safety: Aside from ensuring the crib meets relevant consumer safety standards, you should ensure that the bedside crib can fit securely to your current bed mattress. Most co-sleeper bed injuries occur from babies slipping between cribs and mattresses.

Convenience: Bedside cribs do take up a fair amount of space, so you will need to make sure you have enough space around your current bedside to fit it in. In addition, you may need to move it regularly, so make sure it quickly moves. 

Sturdiness: This also falls in line with safety. Many besides cribs and co-sleepers have different bases. Choose one that has extending feet at the bottom so that you feel confident using it.

Height: Always be sure that the sleeper's height adjustment range matches your mattress.

Ease of cleaning: As all parents know too well, babies are messy creatures. Bedside cribs with flat smooth sides are easier to clean than ones with fancy trims and exteriors. Surfaces should be easy to wipe down.
