    Default Would you?

    I recently (few months back) made a nest bed which I posted a finishing photo in a different thread for a friend who was having a baby.


    I thought I should have made one when DS was born because when I went to friend/ families house I had no where to put him and this would have been a great option, pulling the drawstring to make it flat would have helped with nappy changes while out.. plus having it in his cot when he was a baby instead a bassinet would have been handy too!!

    I'm deciding wether I should try make and sell these or it is pointless so I would love your honest opinions

    Would you buy this?
    How much would you pay?
    If you ordered one, how long would a comfortable time frame to wait for it to be received ?


    * The one in the photo is quite long you could lie a 1 year old in *
    * The bumper would also be a lot bigger/ fuller*ImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1445344305.121353.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1445344314.457700.jpgImageUploadedByThe Bub Hub1445344324.152551.jpg


    Thank you in advance

    That does not look SIDS safe to me, so I would not buy one at all, sorry.

    Because they aren't illegal just not recommended, same as cot bumpers.

    Items that are not SIDS safe aren't illegal and are still for sale in shops. Eg cot bumpers.

    Your sewing skills are awesome! I haven't needed anything like this my my DD but I think one of the ladies in my mothers group had one similar to the big w one that she used for co sleeping.

    I wouldn't leave a baby unsupervised in one so the safety aspect wouldn't worry me. I think it'd be great as a little portable bed, for example if you're visiting a friend for the evening and want to put bub down to sleep for a little while in the same room as you while you're still up and keeping an eye on them. Which doubles as a change mat, I think it's pretty cool

    It looks very cute indeed! But I tend to agree that it doesn't seem SIDS safe so I wouldn't buy one.

    I do however like the idea of a handmade portable change mat/liner. When DD was a newborn DP spent half her life cleaning the change stations at shops and restaurants 'to her satisfaction' before changing DD.
