Product Description

Product Description

Mama birds love the Close & Secure Sleeper because it gives baby a soft little "nest" of his own while keeping him or her close by. You can feed, soothe, monitor and bond throughout the night with the reassurance that your little one is snug, secure and safe-thanks to our Airflow design that allows air to circulate around baby. Designed to be easily portable for on-the-go convenience, you can also use the sleeper in the crib to help ease baby's transition from your bed when he's ready to leave your nest.

Amazon.com

The First Years deceptively simple Close & Secure Sleeper allows you to feed, soothe, monitor, and bond with baby in the comfort of your own bed. Meant to be used from birth until baby rolls over or pushes up on their own, the sleeper is anchored to your bed by a large flap that tucks under your mattress. The patented Airflow design of the hollow frame and breathable mesh fabric keep air circulating and baby cool.

compact view
The sleeper folds up nicely for convenient portability and compact storage.
A durable, cloth-covered U-shaped "wall" surrounds baby’s head and torso to limit their movement and help prevent parents from rolling onto them. The soft head barrier reduces the risk of entrapment, while the foot wedge--which can be used as a sleep positioner in future months--ensures baby stays snugly inside the sleep area. The supportive bottom is a cozy resting spot with the included soft cover, vinyl covered mattress, and removable, machine washable mattress sheet.

Reassurance and safety weren’t the only things The First Years folks thought of when creating this sleeper. Other benefits include its portability, a nightlight, and transitional use. For travel convenience, the Close & Secure folds up easily, is lightweight, and sports a carrying handle. Once baby has outgrown it, this feature means that it can also be compactly stored until needed again. A built-in nightlight allows you to quietly check on your bundle of joy during the night and provides enough illumination for feedings without waking your partner. When you are ready to transition baby to the crib, this sleeper can go with them--simply place it in the crib until baby is used to their new setting.

Two AA batteries are required for the nightlight.

We put this in bed with us (King size) and it worked out great.
Sarah Gutekunst
We probably would have used it a little longer, but it served its purpose and we definitely got our money's worth.
Kristi Farouki
It also folds up for travel and has a great purple night light built into it.

BEWARE to parents of larger and/or longer babies!!

My daughter weighed 11+ pounds and was 23.5 inches long when she was born, so while this is a GREAT sleep positioner or portable bassinet (it's soft, secure, portable, etc.), the actual interior length is ONLY 24 inches.

There is also a NON-removeable wedge at the end of the sleeping surface that impedes foot room, if there was some way to remove it I would have done so, if only to get more use out of it and to prevent her from throwing her legs over the sides (which she does in her bassinet as well).

As a result, my 8 week old daughter outgrew this long ago which was a major disappointment since I was hoping to use it for the transition to her crib. This wasn't exactly an inexpensive item either, so unless your baby is MUCH smaller than mine, I would suggest finding a sleep positioner that has an open end so that you can get more use out of it, for a longer period of time.

This item looks like a great solution as a co-sleeper but it is not. Problem #1: It's 17inches wide & only fits on a Eastern King size bed if there is a normal size parent on either side of this sleeper. Problem #2: Sheet is not standard & contains long strip of velcro that attaches to everything else in your laundry & has to be discarded since becomes tangled mess. Problem #3: It's interior is only 24 inches long, so baby quickly outgrows it. Problem #4: Exterior wall is very hard so parent's head can hit not to mention baby's head as well. What to buy instead: a changing pad that is cradle shaped to fit between the parents for about $25. It takes standard sheets (without velcro) & is soft, allowing parents to curl up with their baby while in bed & allows baby to still have her/his own space & be secure.

We've bought this "little bed" because our baby was born 2 months and half prematured so when she was discharged we wanted her to sleep with us, to be able to monitor her at night and to nurse her more conveniently, but at the same time wanted her to be safe while sharing our bed.

Features that we like are:
- this little bed is easily kept in place in our bed by a large flap that tucks under our mattress, but is also easy to move around our condo so we could always keep an eye on our baby in the day
- the mattress cover is removable, machine washable (we added a folded cotton sheet on the mattress for more comfort)
- this is really lightweight and can also be folded up for compact easy storage once baby has outgrown it until needed again, probably for our future second baby (we didn't travel but I'm sure this feature would be very convenient for the cause)
- this sleeper allowed us to be close to our baby when she finally got home after almost two months waiting for her to be discharged from NICU

Features that we wish this sleeper have:
- sleep positioners, each time we put our baby in bed we had to tuck a blanket or pillow on each side to prevent her awakened (I notice that the new version does have this feature The First Years Close and Secure Sleeper)
- mattress slightly inclined

Features that we find not useful (for us):
- nightlight

Our baby has outgrown it at about two months and half old. We loved this sleeper and enjoyed each day our baby slept close to us.

Verified Purchase
Dear prospective buyer,
I was recently on the market for a co-sleeper so that my baby could sleep with us in the same bed and not have to worry about rolling over. I saw this secure sleeper on amazon.com and the price was reasonable so i decided to give it a shot. Lemme start with some Pros.

PROS
-slimmer in width as opposed the the Summer Infant brand co-sleeper. It fits between us on a Queen size bed easily and we don't feel squished.

-strong UV nightlight

-very lightweight, easy to fold and go

CONS
-too short. the product says its could till 4 months, but my baby is only two months old and if he lies straight he can't fit his whole body in

-footrest is immovable so even if you wanted to make it fit a baby bigger than 23", u would have to physically cut off the footrest

-not even suitable for newborns, because it has an incline that causes babys to slide down during the night

-non breathable mattress. When we were using it, my baby woke up every day with a puddle of sweat on his back and forehead -and he's a SUMMER baby!

in short, i suggest you try summer infants sleeper instead. It's 29" long, which should definitly last till 4 months old, and has a much more breathable mattress. (but buy it from Babys R us - they have it for 59.99)

We LOVED this item. We were concerned about rolling over on our daughter while we had her sleeping in our bed, so this item avoided that problem. We could check on her during the night and feed her without getting out of bed. We used it for the first nearly 4 months, until she actually got so big that we cut the end off (obviously, not recommended) so she could stretch her legs for the last few weeks (she was unusually tall at 4 months, at 27"). I can see using this only with a king-sized bed. One would be too cramped in a queen-sized bed. Note that each parent will have to use separate top blankets and sheets on either side of the sleeper. The only downsides were (1) the nightlight, which I found useless because the light points up and so did not illuminate her face. However, the light is removable, so I suppose one could use it by taking it out. And (2), the manufacturer did not make extra fitted sheets last time I checked. The sheet has velcro which keeps the little mattress in place (although it does not move much), and loose sheets are not recommended for reasons of safety. Therefore, if the sheet gets soiled in the middle of the night, then good luck. The mattress did flatten a little where her head was by the end of 4 months. I have seen comments that the mattress is not soft, but it's really softer than our crib mattress. The entire unit is machine washable (once certain parts are removed, which is easy), and we dried the whole thing in the dryer. We would have brought the sleeper with us on a trip we took after she turned 4 months if she hadn't grown out of it so early. The item was perfect until we transitioned her to her crib at 4 months.
