Kristen, that thing is available nowhere!! I found something similar online, but I'd have to order it and it would be at least a week until it's here! Could I use this:

Ok Target has that by your side sleeper in stock. And we need to head up that way later anyway. Although Target is most likely going to be a mad house. lol. Kristen if you think that will be safe for her, I will pick that up later. It has mesh so even if she does roll against it, it should allow her to breathe still, right?

I agree with Kristen and would use the sleep positioner. Maybe check the walmart nearest to you and see if they have them in stock at that store.

I checked; no walmart in a 50 mile radius has it, according to their website.

Ok I feel a little stupid now. lol. The side where she rolls against does have mesh! But just on the inside; not on the side against the bed. So if she squishes her face against it, it would still press against a solid surface, because right on the other side of the mesh it's solid. Not sure if that makes sense.


Ugh so I am really at a loss if this is safe enough or not! I may still get that summer infant thing. It seems pretty safe to me!

Can you search on craigslist for a sleep positioner? Or do you have a childs consignment store? The one I linked to is easy to stick in the wash. I would keep trying to find that, personally. But if all else fails, I'd use the one you linked to.

Do you have a BabiesRUs? They would definitely have a simple traditional positioner. I'm sure if you just go there you'll find one.

BRU is about 40 mins away and we just happened to be there yesterday. i don't think we could make it there today. I did find this on CL:


It looks different though Kristen. The pillow things are curved? What do you think?

It's pretty far away too. About 30 mins. I may just try to return the 180ct diapers at target and then get this! Why do you prefer the positioner over this?

i think the thing you linked too might still let her scoot around in it and you may still end up feeling nervous. especially if she is swaddled, i would be worried about her rolling on to her belly face down, which she could do in that. but with the simple sleep positioner i posted and you found on CL, she has no choice but to stay on her back.

plus $40 is a lot, once she starts rolling over on her own in the day you won't feel as worried about her being mobile in the cosleeper at night. i dont think youll need much use out of whatever you end up getting.

Makes sense!! I just texted them. Hopefully they answer soon. I'd like to get it tonight. It's only $9! It'll be more in gas to drive there. Haha. So you think I can throw the whole thing in the wash. Used bedding skeeves me out a bit.

Glad you're getting it worked out! Kristen had some great advice. She really needs to be in your room with you at night and NOT by herself!

Good luck with the craigslist buy!

Does anyone you know have a pack n play that you could use temporarily? It would be smaller than the crib. This is totally a "if you're comfortable" suggestion, but you could also consider bed sharing at this point.

^^ in that case, you can convert the cosleeper to a pack n play. it has mesh sides in that "mode."

True! I didn't consider that. The lady didn't write so I'm going to get the sleeper at target tomorrow I guess. Hope she will lay still tonight.

Nina, I have that same Arms Reach co-sleeper. I have the straps that go under the bed loose enough so there is about a 1" gap between the co-sleeper and my bed. I like the buffer to help prevent my covers from going in but it also lets the mesh still be breathable.
