Meet the babybay® and Get More Sleep!
A sleeping baby has to be one of the sweetest things to watch. That is, when they’re actually sleeping! There are so many options available for where your newborn baby can sleep that it can be pretty challenging to decide what the right choice is for you and your family. Is bed sharing the way to go for you? What about co-sleeping? Maybe baby rooming in with a bassinet or crib is the solution? Of course, there’s always the option of a crib in baby’s own room. Before baby makes his or her arrival it’s hard to know exactly what’s going to feel right and work out to give everyone the most sleep possible. With both The Heir and Petit Prince, we opted to start them out in a bassinet in our room. There were pros and cons to that for us, but it always ended up being a short term and temporary sleep solution. Wouldn’t it have been great to have a sleeping option for baby that allowed you to have it all? Enter the babybay®! I only wish I’d known about this great baby sleep solution before my little ones were born. It’s something that gives you options and a customizability that I haven’t seen in baby sleep set ups before. Want to know what it’s all about? Here you go!
What exactly is a babybay®? The babybay® is more than just a co-sleeper, it’s a bedside sleeper that actually attaches securely to any regular bed (with or without a boxspring). It is made out of locally sourced beechwood, so it’s sustainable AND offers natural antibacterial and antistatic protection. The babybay® is manufactured in Germany and is made to the highest European standards. There are four finishes to choose from, and each is done with a high quality water-based finish that is non-toxic and no or low VOC. That definitely promotes a safe sleeping environment for your precious little bundle. The height of the platform of the babybay® is fully adjustable, so it will fit most bed heights with ease.
You might be worried that it’s going to take ages to put it together and get it in place correctly, but don’t be! The babybay® takes just 15 minutes to set up, so you won’t be arguing with your partner over which part goes where for hours on end (unless I’m the only one that’s ever tried to assemble furniture with their spouse?). How does it attach to the bed? For a bed with a boxspring, there’s a special anchoring system that pulls across the top of the boxspring and secures on the opposite side of the bed. The mattress then goes on top of the straps and the anchor sits flush against the bed. It’s brilliant. You can be confident that the babybay® is absolutely secure to the side of the bed and won’t be going anywhere. Don’t have a boxspring? No problem! Frame anchors are available that hook the babybay® onto the bed frame so it isn’t going to shift about.
Once you’ve got the babybay® set up against the bed, you’ve created a perfect little sleep nest for you and your baby. It’s like bed sharing and co-sleeping without losing even an inch of your own sleep space. Baby is within arm’s reach for those late night feedings, and best of all, baby is close AND safe in the babybay®. The babybay® is nice and sturdy too. There’s no plywood or plastic here, just strong sturdy beechwood, so you can feel confident that it’s not a flimsy piece of furniture that won’t stand the test of time. The babybay® will absolutely last through more than one child!
The babybay® isn’t just for co-sleeping though! This is where the versatility comes in. You can use the babybay® as a bassinet if you prefer! It’s so quick to detach the babybay® from your bed, that you can even use it as a bassinet or a bedside sleeper interchangeably as needed. I love that! Maybe you’re looking to turn the babybay® into a proper crib? You can do that too! A wooden side rail to match the finish of your babybay® is available and that turns the babybay® into a mini crib. The babybay® also grows with your child. When they’ve outgrown it as a bedside sleeper or mini crib, you can put two babybays® together to make it a full size crib (conversion kit is coming soon to the USA). Once your child is ready to move to a toddler bed or full size bed, the babybay® converts into a bench for the kids. Perfect for the playroom! I love a baby product that has this kind of versatility and grows with your children. These are exactly the type of multi-use features that I look for in the baby gear items that I buy for my littles. A crib that doubles as a bassinet, co-sleeper, and a bench once baby’s outgrown it? Yes please!
The babybay® is safety certified by the Juvenile Products Manufacturer’s Association (JPMA), ASTM international child safety standards, and TUV/GS (German Safety Approval). If you’d like more information on the babybay® and the available accessories or to order one today, check them out RIGHT HERE.
