We used the Arm's reach original co-sleeper until a few days ago 9baby girl is 9 months old) when she figured out how to stand up in it. Then we moved our mattress onto the floor, and put her crib mattress between our mattress and the wall. It may be a coincidence (it probably is) but she has suddenly started sleeping like 6 hours at a stretch at night. I am wondering if the crib mattress is more comfortable? But we were pretty happy with the co-sleeper, it's fairly easy to get the baby in an out of (although there is a little lip, so the baby's mattress is a few inches lower than yours). I have a very hard time sleeping with a baby in my bed, so we definitely needed a way to extend our sleeping space.
