  • I LOVED mine!

    The only thing I hated was that we waited until the third baby to get it. Seriously the best invention EVER!

  • We got this one...

    Baby is only 12 days old and I love this thing! It connects to the side of our bed and adjusts to the perfect height so that it just seems like an extension of the bed. I like that it can be easily disconnected from the bed and has wheels so I can just wheel baby into the bathroom when I need to shower. I really missed out not having this with my first.

  • We LOVED ours!!! Our guy slept in it until he outgrew it. I highly recommend the Arm's Reach co sleeper.

  • We used the arms reach co-sleeper original but wished we had gotten the smaller one instead. DD ended up sleeping through the night when she was still pretty small though (2 1/2 months) and we didn't see the need to continue co-sleeping and moved her to her crib. If you are planning on co-sleeping for longer, the original is the way to go as it is larger and hold heavier babies.

  • We used the arms reach mini (love it). My friend had set up a full sized arms reach and she felt it was too big, she kept bumping into it, and so I gave her my mini and she likes that. So take a look at your space etc. and see which you'd like better, the full or the mini.

  • I would like to get the mini, because of space, but I would like to use it for at least six to eight months. how long is the mini usable?
