This was my favourite baby buy. We initially had a crib for our sons arrivial but he hated it and refused to sleep anywhere but on me for the first 2 weeks of his life. At this point I discovered the Arm's reach mini co-sleeper and immediately ordered one even though it was very expensive (more than our cot and crib combined). My son slept in it from the very first night!! I delivered my son by c-section and found this so useful for picking him up and putting him down in the night. Breastfeeding with him so close to me was incredably easy and I barely woke up and easily went back to sleep.
My only regret is not getting it sooner as my son was a big baby and he didnt get to use it as long as I would have liked, but I ended up buying the next size up Arms reach Universal cosleeper, which is much bigger but not as sturdy as the mini feels.
If we have another child I look forward to using the mini cosleeper again.

Benefits:
Storage spaces underneath and at the sides
Easy to move around
Doesnt take up much room
Baby is so close to you but you have plenty of room in bed
Much less distruption at night

Cons:
Depending on the birth weight of your baby you may reach the maximum weight limit before you get your moneys worth.

So Nice During Those First Few Months! 4 Jan 2008
By J. Nielsen - Published on Amazon.com
Verified Purchase
We just retired our co-sleeper after 7 months of use with our first baby. I wanted to write a review because when I was pregnant and as a new mom it was so hard to decide if it would be worth the money.

We found the co-sleeper to be a life... rather, sleep-saver, for the first few months. It made exclusively breastfeeding soooo much easier because I didn't even have to get out of bed. I could breastfeed in a semi-awake state and then fall back asleep easily (priceless when you are waking up every 2 hours). We also had our changing table at the foot of our bed so I went back to sleep after feeding and my hubbie took his turn to change the diaper and lay our little one back down without having to make a trek to the nursery.

As new parents, we naturally felt anxious about leaving our baby alone for even a second. We slept with a night light on so we could look over and actually see her whenever we wanted. We didn't lose any sleep worrying if she was ok.

We found the co-sleeper a little tricky to set up and take down but unless you will be doing that daily it isn't that big of a deal. We like the portability of the co-sleeper. We moved it into the living room for our daughters naps so we could clean or just spend some alone time cuddling in our bed (by the way, co-sleeping does NOT ruin *good* marriages). We also took it out of town with us and didn't have to worry about those scarey hotel cribs. It traveled very nicely!

My only disappointment with the co-sleeper is that I wanted to use it longer. We got the mini to fit our small 2 bedroom apartment but I was worried that the weight limit was only 23lbs. Well, at 7 months our little one is starting to pull herself up on the sides which means she could easily topple over the edge. Thus, we have moved on to a full size crib at just shy of 15lbs. Interestingly, the co-sleeper warns that it should not be used with babies over 3 months or those that can roll over. Hmm, I feel sorry for the parents with the 23lb 3 month old!!

So, was it worth it? Yes. However, a standard bassinet that you can probably find easier and cheaper would probably do just as well. The nice thing is that gently used co-sleepers have a great re-sale value online so even if you find it is not worth your money you can get most of it back by selling it.

WARNING TO PARENTS: If I can stress one thing it would be to follow the directions and ATTACH IT TO THE BED. We didn't at first until one night when I fell asleep in our bed while nursing and our daughter slid off my lap. I awoke to find her wedged between our mattress and the co-sleeper with just her little head peaking out!! OMG!! Thankfully her little feet caught the frame of our bed so she didn't slide all the way down. Had we attached it to the bed as the directions say there would not have been a big enough gap for that to happen. So ATTACH IT! - it easily dettaches and reattaches for portability anyway so there is no reason not to.

Excellent breastfeeding aide and product 5 Jun 2008
By Nicki Heskin - Published on Amazon.com
I used this product for about 7 months with my second daughter, and I have to say that I liked it so much that I am only sorry that I didn't have it around for my first.

For my first daughter, we slept her in a graco portable crib/playpen with the bassinet insert next to the bed. It was fine, but it was huge - we had to rearrange our room to make it fit next to the bed, and when I got her to nurse at night, I had to get up and get her in and out. Being an anxious first-time mother, I was also constantly sitting up to check on her whenever I awoke to her movements in the night.

The mini cosleeper fit easily right next to my bed and attached tightly and safely to it with the included bedplate and strap (attaches to the cosleeper and runs under the mattress and pulls firmly against the far side with a plastic plate). I could see her while I was lying down, which was great, and when she woke up, I was able to just bring her to me and lay her back down without actually getting out of bed. It was wonderful.

The mini cosleeper has its own special sheets (additional can be purchased) with lots of Velcro to attach the mattress firmly on the underside of the mattress to the frame. This is what is recommended for safety purposes by Arm's Reach. Standard elastic bassinet sheets do fit the mattress as well, and we chose to use these even though it is not recommended by the manufacturer. Height extenders are also available for the legs, so that you can make the product fit a higher mattress.

We got our mini cosleeper mainly because I expected my older daughter to want to come back in our bed, at least temporarily, when the baby was born (I figured, who wants be the only one sleeping alone!). Since it's not safe to cosleep with a baby and an older sibling (the heavily sleeping child can overlay the baby), and big sister was too young to sleep between my husband and the edge of the bed, I thought this would be perfect. Also, I believe heavily in swaddling (see my article on Swaddling Your Breastfed Baby), and I'm not personally wild about cosleeping with a swaddled baby. Ironically, our older daughter never did return to our bed, but the baby slept SO well swaddled in the cosleeper (a 6-8 hour stretch, almost right away), we stuck with it. It was great having her so close with the feeling of being with me in my bed, while still having some space to stretch out and roll around.

The mini cosleeper comes in a range of colors and patterns and range in price from about $130 to $160, although more expensive styles are available. You can get them in the traditional fabric/netting style, or splurge for natural wood slat or other more custom looks. They are even now making a product that converts to a lower crib, rather than having the storage underneath. If that had always been available, I would have never bought a full-sized portable crib, since the playpen function is not important to me. The mini provides more than enough room to sleep until your child is old enough to sleep in a regular bed, or alternately a mat, cot or sleeping bag of some kind.

Additional features and benefits of the mini cosleeper include the easy transition from the lowered side to a regular bassinet (seems tricky to figure out, but easy once you've got it down). It's also easy to disconnect from the bedplate (two squeeze latches) and then you can roll it from room to room since (unlike its full-sized counterparts), it's small enough to fit through standard doorways. It's so much smaller and lighter than the full-size portable cribs, that after years of traveling with those, it was a delight to travel with the mini. They also have pretty good resale value, selling at the time of this article, between $50 and $100 on ebay and Craigslist - neutral colors are a better buy for this purpose than a pink or patterned look.

After using a range of products, and finally coming to the mini cosleeper, I can't recommend this product highly enough.

Easy on Baby and on the Eyes 14 July 2007
By Katherine Turner - Published on Amazon.com
I used this co-sleeper for both of my sons and it held up beautifully - so well, in fact that our friends' newborn girl is now having a go! As said by the other reviewers, it is very easy to pop up, attach and fold away. It is also the best set-up for night feedings and attachment-sleeping. All three babies have enjoyed sleeping in it, and the beauty of the natural style is that it goes with just about any adult decor (no trying to coordinate your duvet to teddy bears and rainbows) without being uncuddly and is completely ungendered. The various pockets and cubbies are perfect for keeping diapering supplies handy and hidden. As for being cumbersome in the bedroom, I found that it helps to put it as close to the head of the bed as possible (if you can, do without a nightstand for the duration) and then your legs are clear for getting in and out. Also, it makes looking over at each other that much easier.

Great Idea 15 April 2009
By April - Published on Amazon.com
I bought two of these for my twins and I have to say it was so nice to have. I used this in the living room and also along side my bed and it has so many nice features. First of all, it is so sturdy and accommodates quite a bit of weight (22 pounds I think) and it is quite large so you can actually get alot of use out of it. I packed mine away at about 7 months when babies were sleeping longer and in their cribs and starting to pull themselves up. I had a hard time putting my tiny babies in their cribs but sharing my bed with them was difficult and not too safe so this worked wonderfully to keep baby near while still in their own safe sleeping space. There are some drawbacks though such as cleaning is difficult but armsreach said to use rubbing alcohol to clean with a cloth. Also the sheets are pricey but I found that larger standard bassinet sheets worked in a pinch. The co-sleeper is kinda hard to collapse but just be patient and you'll get it. I did not breast feed but I can see how this would be wonderful for that and several little pockets along the side make it easy to store diapers, wipes and birp cloths plus there is storage below for blankets etc. Overall you will get quite a bit of use out of this bassinet and if you are breast feeding it will be wonderful but still nice even for bottle babies.

BEST thing ever! 22 Dec 2011
By chelwig89 - Published on Amazon.com
Durability:   
I cannot stress how much I LOVE this co sleeper. I don't have other actual co sleepers to compare it to, only regular bassinets or pack-n-plays, though. It is a pain to set up (think pack-n-play style but on 2 levels and multiply that by 10 just for annoyance purposes) and take down, but who does that regularly?? It also seems pretty durable- My mother bought it from a second hand store when she had my baby sister a year ago, and I now use it for my daughter, so I know it has been used by at least 3 babies. My only complaint is that the mattress is kind of sagging in the middle. However, my mother put an older flat pillow under the mattress to even it out, and I got a piece of cut plywood. My 29 lb 2 year old has jumped on the mattress and LOVES to hide in the bottom zipper compartment, and thus far it has not caused any harm.

BUT- having my daughter right next to me is important. She has acid reflux, so I am paranoid about her spitting up while sleeping, so it's nice to be able to reach over while half asleep and feel her breathing or put her pacifier back in to her mouth. Also, regular changing table sheets fit the mattress perfectly, so we just use those sheets because they are cheaper & easier to find.

WELL worth the money, and I wish I had had it for my first daughter. I will also be passing it down to a friend of mine.
