What We Love
Attach to Bed Design
What makes the BabyBay Bedside Sleeper different from other co sleepers is that it can be attached to your bed.
See the attachments laying on the floor in the picture above? These are meant to be tied across to the end of your bed like this:
What you get is an ultra-secured fixture that keeps the co-sleeper flush fit to your bed so you won't have to worry about the bassinet moving or there being a gap in between that will cause a safety hazard.
Any bed height within 11 inches of top rail will be a good fit and you can level the co-sleeper sleeping platform to the same height as yours as it is fully height adjustable.
Speaking of baby's sleeping platform, yes, s/he will still get his own undeterred sleeping space because a guardrail will keep him secured and not exposed to the dangers of co-sleeping even though he is literally lying right next to you.
That is precisely why it is the best attach to bed bassinet because it keeps baby safe and snug right by your side.
You get extra bonding time and you can soothe and nurse your baby without leaving the comfort of your covers.
(And yes, that is the BabyBay in a deep walnut stained finish, another colour available at the same price.)
One thing that we like about the BabyBay Bedside Sleeper is how it has a modular design.
Switch up the guardrail and you can convert it into a standalone baby bassinet that can be placed anywhere in the house.
Should you wish for more mobility to bring your BabyBay into any room, you can transform your bedside baby crib into a portable baby crib by using their lockable roller kit.
Such flexibility gives it such an edge over its competitors in the market - you can even raise the sleeping platform to create a changing table!
If you are wondering why BabyBay employs a half-moon shape design, it is because this shape mimics the protective feel of a hug, which is found to be able to give newborns an extra sense of security.
Optimal for Breast & Formula Feeding
One of the most common reasons parents choose to co-sleep with their newborn is because it makes breastfeeding so much easier.
You do not have to get up from your bed and walk across the room (or to another room) to breastfeed baby, which for a newborn, can be multiple times a night.
With BabyBay, mothers get to breastfeed easily just by leaning across to the bassinet and the deed can be done.
If the HALO BassiNest is the best bassinet for c section, this co sleeper is the best bassinet for breastfeeding.
It wasn't just us that think so, even lactation consultants recommend the BabyBay infant co-sleeper to be optimal for breast and formula feeding.
Made In Germany with Top Quality Materials
One of the very few bassinets in the market that is fully made in Germany - it could very well be the only one - the quality of this bedside sleeper is seriously next level.
Not only because it is made to the meet the highest European quality standards (safe certified by JPMA ASTM and TUV/GS), it is also because BabyBay co-sleepers are made only from sustainably sourced eco-friendly beech wood that offers antibacterial and antistatic protection.
On top of that, only high quality water-based finishes that are non-toxic with zero or low VOC are used so as to promote a healthy sleep environment for baby.
If there is one solidly built, sustainable and durable bassinet that is 100% safe and made to last, it will be the BabyBay.
Things to Note
And at this price, it doesn't include the co-sleeper mattress, guardrail or any accessories. You will have to purchase them separately to customize your co-sleeper crib. This includes the aforementioned conversion and roller kits.
That may seem a bit steep to some, however, if you are to take into account the top quality materials it uses, as well as the fact that it is fully made in Germany to the highest European quality standards, such price point is actually reasonable and justifiable.
After all, not many baby bassinets get the approval and recommendation of lactation consultants, and it is by far the best non toxic bassinet in the market we can find.
To be honest, there isn't really many of its kind but we can safely say that the BabyBay Bedside Sleeper is the best co sleeper attach to bed in the market.
Not just that, even as a standard standalone bassinet, its sturdy frame, high quality finish and versatility makes it one excellent bassinet that we will not hesitate in recommending.
