A co-sleeper is a type of baby bed designed to allow parents and infants to sleep in close proximity to each other safely. Co-sleepers typically attach to the side of the parent’s bed, with one side open towards the bed, facilitating easy access to the baby for night time feeding, comforting, and bonding. This arrangement offers the benefits of co-sleeping — such as convenience for breastfeeding mothers and reassurance for both baby and parents — while providing a separate sleep space for the baby to reduce the risks associated with bed-sharing, such as accidental suffocation or overheating.
