About this deal
Lynsey also thought the crib offered great value for money. She said: 'It’s competitively priced and competes very well with other products on the market: the crib is aesthetically pleasing and does everything a mum would require from a crib. It isn't overly expensive for the features it offers.'
The Iora combines sophisticated looks with sensible design. It has five different height adjustments, long straps to secure the crib in place which work with most styles of bed, and the slide function ensures the crib fits snugly alongside your mattress. Unlike many of its more expensive counterparts, this bedside crib is easy to assemble. It doesn’t scrimp on quality, with washable inner fabrics for ease of cleaning, mesh windows to keep baby easily in view, and a comfy mattress included too. The crib also comes with adjustable straps to secure it to the parents’ bed. All in all, it’s a reassuringly spacious, solid-feeling crib in both co-sleeping and standalone cot modes, and although it doesn’t fold down super small, it does fold flat into a travel bag for easy transportation.
Maxi-Cosi Bedside Crips & Co-sleepers
Established in 1877 in Yorkshire, the Silver Cross brand has been around for aeons, and it definitely knows how to produce a winning product. The Voyager Co-Sleeper is designed to make life significantly easier for parents. Not only is it incredible portable, coming with its very own travel bag, but it also offers seven adjustable height positions, an incline setting for babies prone to reflux, and a useful storage shelf too. To help you find the best bedside crib for your sleep set-up, we tasked a panel of new parents to put eight of the best-selling options to the test, rating the cribs on everything from the value of money and comfort to the functionality and design appeal. Each new parent tried out the best bedside cribs with their babies, all aged between just a couple of weeks and five months old. Our tester Leya Goldsmith, who is mum to Eden, six weeks, was a huge fan of the HALO BassiNest. She commented: 'I’ve used a Moses basket and a bedside crib for my two other children but this bassinet has definitely been the best!'
After 6 months you or your baby might be ready to take the next step in sleeping; moving to their own room. This is a big step for both of you, so only take it when you feel your are ready for it! Getting used to sleeping in a separate baby bed in their own room might take some time for your little one. The best bedside cribs are suitable from birth until six months, or whenever the baby starts rolling over or sitting up. How does the drop-down side work? More importantly, is it easy to use? Will you be able to fumble it open while half asleep in the middle of the night? Make sure the side panel is easy to use, but also easy to secure.The drop-down side is a half-height zip wall that meets the mesh sides of the crib. The mesh wall provides a barrier to prevent the infant from rolling into the bed while co-sleeping. Both sides also have a mesh panel for easier viewing.
