During my last visit to Eurobaby, I wanted to take a look at one of the most important items for when I bring my baby girl home, her crib!
Eurobaby stock an array of different cribs for your and your babies particular needs. A crib is essential for your babies independant sleep, your peace of mind and overall safety, although every new mum wants to keep their baby as close as possible – which is why co-sleepers are your best friend! With a co-sleeper, you and your baby can sleep side by side, without the risk of suffocation.
It’s recommended that newborns sleep next to the mothers bed for the first 6 to 12 months of life. A co-sleeper or separate bassinet are the safest options for this. Co-sleepers are great as they have a flap which can be zipped down for co-sleeping at night but can also be zipped up and used as a crib during the day.
The first co-sleeper we looked at was the Chicco Next2Me Magic 2 Baby Crib.
This crib has a roll-up barrier mechanism which is easy to open and close with one hand. The crib has four wheels attached with brakes for keeping it in place. Both sides of the crib provides a complete ventilation system, the mattress also has ventilation to keep the baby cool while supporting the spine. The crib can also adjusted to height and even tilted on either side for reflux issues.
The coolest feature on this crib is when the clips are adjusted, the crib turns into a rocking cradle to soothe your baby to sleep!
