Nice peace of mind product for newborns

I probably should just write a review re: co-sleeping and that would get to most of the reasons I liked this product. Meantime, I'll just say that this gadget is quite useful for the first couple of months or so when baby is exceptionally small and there is reasonable risk of rolling over her ... mind you, not likely for mom since you're not sleeping at all, and even when you can you don't b/c you're staring at this amazing new babe. More for dad, who gloriously seems to achieve deep sleep even amidst the newborn fray.

We weren't very informed about co-sleeping before having our baby, and it took a while to get used to the idea - and to determine if it worked for us, our baby, and our parenting style. During that window of time, this really helped to ease us into things and to balance our remaining concerns. (ps - wound up that we co-slept for her first year, as it happened - and HIGHLY recommend. but like I said, another review).

Some points about the Snuggle Nest:
  • It's not super soft, and we wondered a bit about how firm it was, though baby didn't seem to mind.
  • The little nite lite attachement is quite handy when fumbling in the dark to re-swaddle and such.
  • It's super portable, which is nice for travel.
  • The sleep positioner doubles by itself in the crib, which is convenient.
  • It doesn't take up too much space in the bed (though we have a Cal King, so we had a lot of room to work with).
  • The incline is better in theory than practice - we took it out and used the flat version.  Baby winds up sliding down the little slope, especially when all bundled in a swaddle.
