5.0 out of 5 stars Cozy way to keep baby close, June 18, 2010
By 
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
We bought this for our daughter after it was clear that she hated sleeping in her co-sleeper crib. Apparently being *next* to our bed wasn't close enough - she wanted to be *in* bed with us :) Because co-sleeping is dangerous without protection for newborns, we researched and found this product.

We have a queen-sized bed, and the snuggle nest did make it a tight fit for everyone. But being next to our baby, hearing her breathe, and being able to easily turn over and nurse her made it very worthwhile. I'm exclusively breastfeeding, and those first weeks where she nursed seemingly all the time would have been twice as bad had I not been able to nurse her while still in bed.

The mattress is compact and sturdy (as it's supposed to be), and the side bolsters did a good job of preventing her from wiggling too far to the right or the left. The LED nightlight was very impressive - effective without being glaring. All of the fabric parts are removable from the plastic shell and machine washable. The ease of folding up the bed meant that we took it with us when we traveled with her - no crib needed in a hotel or grandma's house, we just unfolded the snuggle nest. That alone was a big stress reducer.

Now for a downside - your child may grow out of it very quickly. Our daughter is a long baby, and we started noticing a tight fit as early as three months old. By 3 1/2 months, we decided to transition her back to a crib. Thankfully she was as ready as we were, and now at 4 months she sleeps in her own crib all night. All in all, it was a great purchase and we certainly will keep the snuggle nest for use with our next child.
