The Snuzpod Downstairs

It may be that Finn is my last, or that I am a bit of a clingy mum but we haven't started putting him upstairs to bed yet.  He is ready for bed with his brothers at half seven, a routine he put himself into, but whilst the bloke takes the big two upstairs for stories, clean teeth and bed time cuddles, Finn and I have milk and snuggle on the sofa.

I am an absolute co-sleeper convert, and I love the fact we can use our Snuzpod as a moses basket downstairs.  I bring it down in the evening, adding on the extra side, and it sits on our coffee table.  We have a huge coffee table so it sits comfortably on there but I always make sure one of us is in the room with Finn just in case. (Snuzpod do not recommend using it on a raised surface).  I love that I can watch him sleeping, as the side that zips on is a transparent mesh and Finn doesn't seem bothered at all by the noise of a typical evening in our house.  As a moses basket it can be rocked too, as the bottom is curved which makes it ideal for any close calls.

When I am ready for bed, I carry it up (rather awkwardly as it is pretty large), pop it back in the frame and take off the side again - Finn has never woken up as I carry it.

I know it won't be long before the baby monitor comes out and I start putting my baby 'to bed', but I am just not ready yet.   Finn sleeps so much better when there are people nearby, and we can pretty much forget he is there in the evenings.

In case you were wondering how the Snuzpod compares to a moses basket on size, I have to say it is pretty generous.  Finn is four and a half months and still has plenty of growing space. It is far wider and longer than a moses basket, and he seems really comfortable in there.  He can stretch his arms out and has space to roll onto his side too.
