A new trend in baby cribs is the bedside crib. A bedside crib looks a lot like a regular crib except that it has one open side. You can place it next to your own bed so the baby cribs mattress and your mattress are lined up right next to each other. Rather than having your baby sleep down the hall in a nursery or even across the room, your baby is right next to you at all times.
Some models of bedside crib can be lifted up on rolling casters so you can position them at your convenience. Others double as bassinets, so they can be used as changing tables, or as portable baby cribs. They are available in a range of styles and colors so it should be easy to find one that looks and feels right with the rest of your bedroom furniture as written by pickmybabycrib.com.

Many parents would love to sleep close to their baby but are afraid of rolling over on the little one. With a bedside crib, you never have to worry about that. The baby is nearby, but in a safe space.
A bedside crib is super convenient for breast-feeding moms since there is no need to get out of bed to feed the baby. The same is true for bottle feeding parents, provided they have an electric bottle warmer nearby in the bedroom.
A bedside crib is great for women who have had a Cesarean section because they don’t have to get up and out of bed to tend to the baby’s needs while they are recuperating. As any mother can tell you, following childbirth, a bit of extra rest is a welcome thing.
When the baby is restless or fussy, you can just reach over and offer the pacifier, along with hugs and cuddles. You can always respond quickly to your baby’s needs without having to go all the way down the hall or even across the room and then climb back into bed with cold feet. It’s likely that both parents will get more rest when you have a bedside crib.
Bedside cribs do have a weight limit, about 30 pounds in one popular brand. When your baby outgrows the bedside crib for sleeping it can be used as a play yard.
