What I love

  • Since the base only needs a 32″ clearance from the wall this is an ideal co sleeper for small
  • The 4-point base is super easy to tuck under your bed and the sleeper fits to beds from 24″ to 34″ tall
  • rotates 360 degrees and you can pull the basket over the bed, which is just perfect especially those days after giving birth and also if your’re a nursing mom.
  • extremely heavy and sturdy so there’s no chance a toddler brother or sister can knock over this baby bed
  • mesh sides: sidewalls are made of mesh which makes is easy to see your baby without having to put the sidewall down (and giving toddler brother/sister the opportunity to accidentally put a finger in your baby’s nose)
  • the motion is incredibly silent en smooth so you can push the sleeper away a bit or bring your baby closer to you without disturbing your sleeping baby just a bit
  • you can lower the sidewall which makes tending to your baby easy. Sidewall can be locked in the upright position too and therefore this co sleeper can also be used as a stand alone baby bed
  • comes with al little bag on one side in which you can put a pacifier and bottle for example.
  • contains a waterproof mattress pad

The cons

Ok, let’s be honest here: the price of this small cosleeper. But this bassinet will give you more sleep and less stress. Isn’t that what we all just need as  (new) parents?!

nr. 4 best bassinet for small spaces

The Baby Delight bedside sleeper

Click price and details

What I love

  • this bed that attaches to the parents bed comes with attached straps to easily adjust to your bed for safe sleep
  • for congestion and digestion relief this co sleeper crib gives you incline options which make it possible to put the bassinet in a gentle angle. Perfect for reflux babies!
  • you can use this co sleeper crib as a stand alone crib but in bedside sleeper mode you can open the side panel by unzipping it for easy access to your baby
  • the sides are made of breathable mesh which make it easy to see your baby even while in bassinet mode
  • this bassinet is leightweight which makes is possible to move for example from bedroom to living room
  • it’s extremely easy to set up
  • the bassinet is very big which gives room for growth and fits even tall babies

Aren’t there any cons? Well..

  • the pocket on the back (the storage basket) of this bassinet that attaches to bed is rather tiny. If you’re looking for more storage then this one won’t be your best co sleeper bassinet option
  • it won’t fit a very high adult bed like some boxsprings so be sure to check the height of your bed and the required height of the co sleeper

The cover of this side bed bassinet is removable and machine washable, and the included sheet is waterproof. It has a nice storage pocket to keep a pacifier or other stuff that might come in handy during the night. You can easily adjust the height in six positions which makes this bed adjustable for just about any adult bed. If you’re looking for a co sleeper that is just very good and sturdy and that won’t break the bank than don’t look any further.
