First Impressions of Chicco Next 2 Me Crib Review

What do MyBump2Baby’s mums think?
“I was looking for a moses basket for my little one that can also be used as a side sleeping crib and travel cot. I loved the idea of co-sleeping but also being able to have my own space and ensure my little baby girl is safe. The great thing about the chicco next2me is the ease of night feeds, I can literally just reach for my little girl when she cries for the night feeds and within a second she is happy and feeding. I had a c section so found it hard to sit up initially but this crib is a lot more friendly for people who have a newborn baby who have recently had a c section. I love the chicco next2me and I am glad we bought this.” Delilah 27
“Having my baby close and co sleeping safely is great for me, i was looking for other bedside cribs and Moses baskets for ages but i wasn’t sure which was best, a few of my friends recommended the chicco next2me as it is like being in the same bed but enables us to sleep safely too. My little boy was a reflux baby and he was hard to settle so having him next to me was much easier, i could just settle him and put him back down where as with my previous child we had a traditional moses basket and it meant that each time he cried i had to get up each time for the night time feeds, it allowed me to get more sleep which was very welcomed. I loved side sleeping and found this really good value with easy access to y baby.” Steph 32
“I was desperate for a traditional moses basket with my first baby but with my second we barely used it and used the travel cot in our bedroom instead, i have always loved the idea of co sleeping but i wanted to co sleep safely rather than putting my little baby in her parents bed. and the chicco next2me crib allowed me to do just that. I did look at other bedside cribs but I have heard incredible things about chicco and i wanted to feel confident that when i bring my tiny baby home my baby slept close to me. I wasn’t keen in putting her in her own room before 6 months” Aimee 25
