    Default By Your Side sleeper

    Has anyone got a By Your Side sleeper? They're for sale in the latest Babies R Us catalogue and I'm thinking of getting one for when baby #2 arrives in July. Some online reviews say they are for travelling but are they sturdy/comfy enough for baby to sleep in every night until moving to a bigger cot?

    We borrowed a bassinet when DS was born but we did a lot of cosleeping too so I'm not sure if I can be bothered trying to get the bassinet back again.

    Are there other cosleeper-type bassinets that are better?

    TIA

    We were given one ....
    planned to use it when travelling but found it needed to be in the bed with you, not sturdy enough or soft enough for on it's own. It also took up quite a bit of room in bed. I wouldn't use it unless it is just you and bubba in bed, or you have a huge bed!
    We only used it when bubba was a bit sick, wanted him nice & close.

    Not sure what other options are out there.

    There's one called the Arms Reach co-sleeper that I've not personally used but it has received a lot of positive reviews from others on multiple forums when I did my research on sleeping arrangements. Worth looking into!

    Thanks for the replies. I was worried that it might be too big to fit in the bed with me and DH. I'm going to go check it out this afternoon.

    I've seen the Arms Reach ones too but we don't want to spend that much.

    Thanks again
