Hi; I'm a first time mom due in a couple of weeks.
I have been going crazy over this Arm's Reach cosleeper that I bought from a friend. only one of the 4 sides is mesh. Why is it considered safe to have cloth edges if bumpers are not safe? It seems like an equal suffocation risk to me. Sorry for the double post/ I asked about this in a different thread in my birth club. just looking for lots of opinions on this.
So i got so worked up over the sides of this thing not being mesh, and have started looking for a replacement bassinet. Trouble is, I can't find ANY that have mesh sides. What's up with that? I don't see how that is considered safe, when there are so many other hazards.
babies can be squirmy! I just don't understand and really need reassurance. Every review I have read of this thing says its amazing, blah blah blah. I am apparently the only person who sees this as a suffocation risk, so I must be missing something.
I was hoping to have a bassinet for her to sleep in sometimes and have her sleep with us sometimes also. I don't know what the safest choice is for our family and I'm running out of time. Does anyone have any resources for bed sharing? has anyone used a bassinet with cloth sides successfully?
