If you are having a kid for the first time, you’ll know how co-sleepers are lifesavers, especially at night when you have to bottle-feed your infant. The sad truth is that bassinets and cribs, which are often stationary in the nursery, will seem like an extra task getting to it. And that’s motherhood, not being lazy.

On a lighter note, if a baby sleeps virtually all the time (95%) in the mother’s womb, why chase your newborn away to some furniture far away in the nursery? Transitions are probably less isolating to your new bundle of joy. That’s why there are co-sleepers, lounger pillows, bassinets, and cribs for your baby to transition easily.

That’s why we’ve spent close to 100 hours to put together a list of top co-sleepers you can choose from to help you stay close to your little baby. We want you and your newborn to enjoy every moment you can have together.

We want you and your newborn to enjoy every moment you can have together.

The crib or bassinet is more comfortable than a simple lounger without support such as crib or bassinet and that’s why our overall best co-sleeper in 2020 enables you to attach it to your bed.

Halo Bassinet, a co-sleeper that attaches to bed

Before we go into the reviews of the best co-sleepers available in 2020, I’ll answer some commons questions about co-sleeping. If you are in a hurry, you can skip jump to this list.

What is co-sleeping?

According to Dr. James J. McKenna, Ph.D. co-sleeping refers to any situation where a caregiver or parent is within sensory range of each other. This definition is important and should not be confused with other terms such as bed-sharing or sofa-sharing.

With co-sleeping, the baby and whoever is sleeping with the baby are able to detect each other or even smell, see, hear and even touch. Babies respond to any of the surrounding sensory cues and it is important to understand that it is Ok for parents or caregivers to co-sleep with their little ones.

Because of limited comprehensive guides online, I still get questions from parents about co-sleeping such as:

Can I co-sleep with my newborn and is it good or bad?

Yes. You can co-sleep with your newborn and it’s actually good for you and your baby but not necessary. Below is my short story of how I realized I really needed a baby co-sleeper.

By the time my firstborn was born, I had organized the nursery and set up all the furniture to make a cozy home for the newborn. The planning and all the imaginations that went into designing the nursery seemed like waste the first few days after coming home from the hospital. I didn’t want to go or leave my baby in the nursery as I needed to be close in order to constantly check on him.

Actually, over 75% of couples co-sleep with their little ones during the first six months.

Enter the co-sleeper and I’ve never looked back.

If I could pass on some free advice is that co-sleepers and loungers should be among your baby’s must-haves.

It’s ridiculous that parents still let opinions and cultures to dictate how or where they can co-sleep with their baby.

Co-sleeping across cultures

Will Co-sleeping Ruin My Marriage?

And some parents such as Jonathan complain that co-sleeping ruined their marriage. You should, however, note that articles like Jonathan’s are isolated as most parents do not isolate one parent at the expense of the infant.

If either the dad or the mum does not excessively co-sleep with the newborn to avoid the other spouse, there is no problem at all. You can, however, have a plan so you don’t overdo it and become that parent applying ‘attachment parenting’.

According to scientists such as Rosemary’s team at University of British Columbia have laid the case of co-sleeping and its impacts on marriages and intimacy between parents. Their research is summed up by the snippet below:

 Time spent bed sharing did not significantly predict variance in marital satisfaction when considering bed sharers as a whole.

Bed Sharing and Marital Satisfaction, Rosemary Messmer

James McKenna and Thomas McDade of the University of Indiana make a full case for co-sleeping in this detailed study.

Can co-sleeping prevent SIDs?

Co-sleeping reduces the chances of SIDs by up to 50% according to AAP as detailed in this WebMD article. SIDs risk is high and eventually reduces to virtually zero by the end of the first year. SIDs is NOT 100% preventable but safe co-sleeping and using the appropriate gear can reduce the chances of SIDs.

Here are all the benefits of co-sleeping

You can also count on co-sleepers to:

  1. Prevent suffocation and strangulation
  2. Reduces chances of SIDs by up to 50%
  3. It makes it easy to breastfeed or bottle-feed the baby
  4. Reduces the stress of a baby, as demonstrated by higher heart-rate when the baby is placed to sleep alone rather than skin-to-skin with their mothers
  5. It assists the baby’s brain development

One of the arguments by those opposed to co-sleeping include cases of entrapment that can happen when a baby is sleeping in bed with adults. However, it is important to note that cases of entrapment deaths are rarely reported.

There are many ways you can co-sleep with your baby and different cultures do it differently. In North America, it is very common to have parents be in the same bed with the baby or sleep beside a baby in a bassinet or in a lounger.

Co-sleeping baby to own bed

-transition to crib:

Inevitably, there comes a time when a baby outgrows a lounger and even a bassinet.

Some ideas on setting up a cozy safe crib include;

  • Ensure the mattress snugly fits the edges of the crib to avoid places the baby may get stuck.
  • Ensure the mattress is fairly hard as soft mattress may cause suffocation
  • There should not be loose sheets
  • Ensure the crib has the perfect napping temperature

 So how do you stop co-sleeping with a toddler?

-co-sleeping toddler how to stop:

  • Gradual steps; This is achieved by small simple changes. Since the baby may be feeding less at night, you can start by moving his current bed further away from your bed.

Later, you can move the crib in your room and allow the baby to nap in the crib during the day. This familiarises the baby to the new environment after which you can return the crib to the baby room.

  • Once in the new room, you can camp for a while in the baby room at a decreasing rate
  • You can further create a feeling of closeness to the baby by sneaking in your sheets or one of your clothes; just make sure they snugly fit.
  • Set and maintain routines; this way, the baby will be psychologically prepared for nap-time.

-co-sleeping toddler studies:

The American Association of Pediatrics(APP) does not endorse bed-sharing since studies have shown a direct relationship between sudden infant death syndrome (SIDS) and bed-sharing. How ever, they (APP) have also advised that sleeping in the same room with a toddler reduces (SIDS) by up to 50%

This is not quite commendable since it increases the chances of roll-over from both parents unless you are using a bassinet like SwaddleMe By Your Side

co-sleeping through history

This bonding and closeness have been shown to result in better sleep in both the child and parent.

co-sleeping statistics

According to data from a study conducted in the UK by their Department for Education, on average, 133 babies died in the span of 5-years ( 2013-2017) on co-sleeping related cases.

The cases were more prone to parents who were, smokers, periodically took alcohol and who were mostly fatigued.

co-sleeping safety

-safety rails

Safety rails are recommended to be installed on your parents’ bed regardless of whether your child can roll or not.

Meshed guard rails are better than wooden or metal slats. Also, make sure there is no space that your baby can get stuck between the bed and the rail.

-safety tips

  • It is recommended to place the baby between the mother and the wall or rail rather than in between parents as mothers at first are more aware of the baby than the father
  • Place the baby on its back to nap
  • Don’t over-dress the baby so as to prevent over-heating; the baby should also have some free space to move arms and feet.
  • Use safety rails as a precaution to rolling over

-safety guidelines

  • Avoid co-sleeping on the sofa
  • Don’t co-sleep if you are a smoker, an alcoholic or very obese
  • Avoid strong perfumes

  • Get rid of sheets, pillows to avoid suffocation and strangulation
  • Avoid smoking, drinking and or drugs that can make you deep sleep

  • A king size mattress offers an exploring wide space
  • Place the mattress on the floor to avoid falling off
