Why Bedside Cribs Are The First Choice for Parents
Since their launch, bedside cribs have become the first choice for mums and dads, with SnuzPod alone being trusted and loved by over 165,000 parents!
In a 2019 Fanfinders survey for Nursery Today, it was revealed that as many as 77% of parents have considered purchasing a bedside crib. But why have next to me cribs such as SnuzPod become so popular? We dig a little deeper to find out!
A Safe Alternative to Co-sleeping
When your little one finally arrives, it’s hard not to want to be by their side 24/7, especially as they nod off. Whilst sleep experts such as the Lullaby Trust advise on safe ways to co-sleep with your baby, bedside cribs offer a safe solution that provides all the same benefits, while giving your little one their very own separate sleeping space next to your bed.
Once baby is fed and comforted, SnuzPod’s unique zip-down mesh wall provides extra peace of mind, as it can be zipped back up to create a four-walled crib that will keep out any stray duvets or bedding.
No-hassle Night Feeds
Getting out of bed to feed might seem like an easy enough task, but it suddenly becomes a whole lot harder when it’s in the early hours of the morning! Bedside cribs like SnuzPod help make breastfeeding your baby that little bit easier, by having them easily accessible with you lying by their side.
Simply zip down the side wall, or lift baby out of their SnuzPod when it’s time to feed, and then place them gently back to sleep when they’re ready.
Cuddles made Convenient
Nothing beats waking up next to your happy, smiling baby. Relish in the small yet meaningful moments whilst easily being able to help them drift off to sleep from the comfort of your own bed. SnuzPod allows you to conveniently comfort your baby if they wake or stir during the night.
Ideal For C-Section Mums
Caring for your baby after having a c-section birth can be a challenge, with mobility more limited as wounds heal during recovery. Bedside cribs are loved by mums for their practicality, and the ease of access they provide to their baby during the night without having to get out of bed, facilitating things during the first few weeks of recovery.
Reflux is an extremely common feeding issue that affects nearly half of all babies under a year old (National Institute for Health and Care Excellence, NICE). SnuzPod comes with a separate reflux leg that can be slotted in place at either end of the crib to provide a gentle elevation to help soothe and comfort your baby to aid with congestion and reflux.
A Little Pick-me-up
Many bedside cribs are portable, meaning that you don’t need to purchase a separate Moses basket. Unique to SnuzPod, its lift-off bassinet means that baby can nap anywhere in a consistent sleep environment, meaning you can keep your little one close to you throughout the day. The SnuzPod bassinet fits comfortably inside SnuzKot, making transitioning from side-sleeping to snoozing in a new nursery easier than ever.
Store as you Snore
If you’re pressed for places to store baby’s cuddlies, blankets, and gadgets, many bedside cribs come with a built-in storage shelf beneath the bassinet for just such dilemmas. If you’re still stuck for space, we offer a clever Storage Pocket for SnuzPod which attaches onto the side of the crib, so no losing sleep over misplaced essentials!
