I was fortunate for the opportunity to receive and review the Arm’s Reach MINI EZEE™ 3 IN 1 CO-SLEEPER® Bassinet while I was pregnant and have been using it since Moxie was born. So far, we have been loving it!
It’s compact, lightweight and fits exactly where we need it. It has been so nice with my recovery as well because with a c-section, bending and lifting is difficult and I find that the height of the bassinet is perfect for me to access without much issue. It also has one side that slides down to place up against the bed for easy access from your bedside. It comes with the mattress, which is much more padded than even a traditional pack and play and seems very comfortable; fitted sheet which stays nice and snug to the mattress and washes up perfectly (I know from experience with a baby who spits up…A LOT!); travel bag, for trips outside the house; and 2 Wheels, which make it easy to move around throughout the house, if you need it, and also super helpful with my recovery if I had to rearrange things so I wasn’t lifting or pushing against resistance.
My favorite thing about it was the size. It’s smaller, in comparison, to other infant bed options. We used a cradle for our other two, which Moxie with upgrade too at some point when she outgrows theArm’s Reach MINI EZEE™ 3 IN 1 CO-SLEEPER® Bassinet, but it is so large for a newborn baby. This is nice and small and to me, more comforting to a small baby. I always felt like other sleepers we used with our other two were so large, open and cold. You can also remove the upper mattress support and use it as a play yard, which will get tons of use this summer for us! It’s been great with the older two as well because it’s the perfect height for them to have safe access to the baby and greet her every morning, which they love to do! They can talk to her and touch her at their own height, but also have the baby protected by the mesh sidewalls.
Another option I’m also loving is the elasticized side pockets. We use ours to store diapers and wipes, since storage for Moxie’s things is in another room. It makes things much easier, especially at night, for getting her pants changed in the dark without waking the whole house. Our oldest daughter, Lark, is quite the helper and she loves to fill the pockets up with diapers and fetch them for us during diaper changes.
A lot of thought and research went into the Arm’s Reach MINI EZEE™ 3 IN 1 CO-SLEEPER® Bassinet and it shows. It has fit so perfectly into our new life with three little ones and will continue to be a staple in our home. We went with the Acanthus print because of the pretty neutral grey color and it blends in great in our home.
