As you may know I recently gave birth to our third daughter Iris. She is now six weeks old and we’ve been co-sleeping from the first night we came home from the hospital. I didn’t co-sleep with my other two daughters, instead we had a mosses basket set up next to the bed. To be honest co-sleeping beds weren’t really around back then – and I didn’t want to share a bed with my babies – I understand why some decide do this, it just didn’t feel right for me and my husband.
I’d read and heard so much about the SnuzPod 3-in-1 co-sleeping crib and loved everything about it. For one, it’s well designed and looks very stylish, it’s also competitively priced compared with other co-sleeping solutions on the market. However, the main attraction for me was that I could sleep with my baby girl right next to me in her own little ‘side cart’ bed.
As a breastfeeding mother, I can tell you that it’s so much easier to pick up Iris from her little bed next to me to sleepily feed her, before easily and effortlessly placing her back down without any major disruption to her or me. The thought of getting in and out of bed to pick her up (and put her back down) now seems like such a big effort, especially in a sleepy 3am haze.
What’s also great about the SnuzPod is its versatility. You can use it as a co-sleeping bed (as shown in my pictures above), zip up the open side and turn it into a normal crib (as shown in my pictures below) or pull out the cot bed and carry it around the house – like you do with a mosses basket. Making the SnuzPod a multi functional, 3-in-1 sleeping solution and a brilliant baby bed option.
I’ve already mentioned that the SnuzPod cribs are very stylish (and available in 4 beautiful colours) but what I haven’t mentioned is the funky and colourful fitted sheets and blankets they’ve recently created. The bold prints are cool and super cute, we went for the girlie pink and yellow option. You can also get a SnuzPod side pocket which is really useful for keeping nappies and wipes to hand. This pocket is especially useful for late night changes.
I adore co-sleeping with Iris and having her little face lie next to me, knowing she’s safe in her little bed that’s open and strapped onto our big bed. It also makes it easy for me to check on her in the middle of the night. I wish these co-sleeping beds were more available when we had our other two daughters but at least I get to experience the joy of it now.
