Co-sleeping

Co-sleeping means sleeping together with your child. Co-sleeping can be very nice, especially if you also breastfeed at night. Or if your child really needs your presence. Of course it is paramount that co-sleeping is done safely.

Safe co-sleeping

It’s not possible to co-sleep safely with your child without a special bed for co-sleeping. Because the adult bed itself is absolutely no safe environment for your baby. Your child could roll over, suffocate, get too warm or even fall out of the bed. If you’d still really like to co-sleep with your baby, you should use a (co)-sleeper. This enables you to pick up on signals like hunger, the need for comfort or other problems very easily.

I love having my baby close to me at night!

A co-sleeper

A co-sleeper is a cradle with one open side, which you shove up against your bed. Your child will have his own place to sleep, but will still be close to you. There are also co-sleepers with a little gate covering the open side. If you use this, your child won’t be able to roll into the big bed, but he’ll sleep safely alone in his own bed.

The Puckababy® Sleeper

Very simple co-sleeping is made possible by the Sleeper from Puckababy. You don’t have to purchase a separate cradle. This mobile cradle will provide your child with his own safe place to sleep all day long. And at night that place is close to you. You should place the Sleeper in the middle of the bed, near the headboard, so that the duvet doesn’t cover the Sleeper. And that’s all you need to do! During the day you can use this soft bed to cradle your baby to sleep very easily. You can then place the cradle in a quiet place, where your baby will be able to have a nice long sleep. It’s not just ideal for co-sleeping, but also for the unpleasant moments with a lot of crying and for outings; you can easily put it in the stroller, or even bring it on an airplane.
