Firstly, apologies for the graininess of these pictures, anyone else find this winter light SO hard to take photos in? I'm sure there must be a good time of the day to do them but I've not quite worked it out yet.
I wanted to share with you our bedroom set up as sleep is such an important subject when it comes to motherhood. If you are a long time reader of my blog you will know I co-slept with Wilf from the very start and we had a co-sleeper that Tom actually built (you can see that post here). At the time we had a double bed and then the co-sleeper attachment that was the same size as a cot. After a while we upgraded to a king size bed as Wilf ended up with us so much and recently a super king (you can see the bed we chose here). Our upgrade to a super king was such a good decision btw!
Because of our larger bed there was no way we could fit in our old cot so when Snuzpod offered us one of their co-sleepers to try out we jumped at the chance.
I'd heard quite a bit about the Snuzpod from friends and the thing that initially drew me to them was their competitive price. The other co-sleepers we had been looking at were all around £300 or not a very nice design. I loved that the Snuzpod had a simple stylish design and also comes in at around £169 which I think is really good value.
With Wilf as a newborn and now Mabli I've always wondered how people have the strength to physically get up and out a bed to feed their babies. I love that I can pick her up from straight next to me and sleepily feed before we both fall back to sleep having not really fully woken up.
You can also zip up the side (which has a little window to see your baby) if you want to turn it into a normal cot but I don't think we'll use it like this. As well as the cot/co-sleeper function it can also be used as a moses basket to carry into different rooms during the say so buying one means that you wouldn't also have to purchase a moses basket if needs be.
The Snuzpod also comes with some super cute sheet and bedding options (we have the star set) as well as a Snuzpod pocket which is really useful for keeping muslins or a water bottle to hand. I found that a really useful add on actually as we got rid of my bedside table to replace it with the co-sleeper and installed the shelf to add a clock and nightlight.
In case you are interested our night light is the Aden & Anais serenity star. I actually didn't get on with this initially as I found the noises it comes with (white noise, lullabies etc) way too loud. That being said once we'd given it a go for a couple of nights we just got used to it and find the white noise option really useful. It also has a temperature display and if it dips below 18c will turn blue to signify the room is too cold.
The light box is from Molly Meg and the little animals are Lapin and Me from Rowdy Roddy Vintage.
we received a Snuzpod for this review but all thoughts are my own
