Chicco Next2Me Original, Grey | Side-Sleeping Crib, Adjustable Height, inc. Mattress and Travel Bag
About this deal
Do not use the product if the mattress of your bed has a height lower than 49 cm from the ground or exceeding 64 cm. And while it’s not an intended design feature, I found the thickness of the frame meant I could easily hook the baby monitor over the crib for attempting a daytime nap rather than having to affix it to a wall or nearby object, which I found really useful.
In just one product, parents can find 3 functionalities: a side-sleeping cot, traditional cot and also a floor bed for toddlers. While the Chicco Next2Me Forever Crib is undoubtedly expensive, it is a very innovative, high-quality product built to last 4years. So, it's clear that the Next2Me Cribs have all been carefully designed with your sleep and sanity in mind, and this is why they continue to be a parent favourite time and time again. It can attach to a range of beds, but the mattress has to be of the standard rectangle shape and a minimum of 53. The Next2Me Magic bedside crib features a new drop-side design, enabling you to raise and lower the partition at will even while the crib is attached to the bed.
The Magic also boasts an exciting new rocking mode, and any parent who has had to stand at their bedside wrought with fatigue, manually rocking their baby back to sleep whilst they slowly descend into madness will appreciate the genius behind this innovation. It’s also very sturdy and feels like it would last well over the four years it’s designed to be used for. Chicco is a trusted worldwide brand with over 60 years' experience designing baby essentials like cribs, highchairs, carriers and toys. The Next2Me can be used as both a close sleeping and standard crib and can be detached from the parents' bed and progressively moved away as your little one becomes more independent, and later in the child's room. Kirstie is currently on maternity leave and tested the crib day and night with her 10-week-old baby in both its co-sleeping and standalone functions.
It is the first that has the extended use element for a child up to the age of 4 and is the only crib of its kind on the market. MadeForMums Editorial Judge Gemma also tested the sides and says, “The drop-side itself is easy to operate one-handed and smooth when in manual mode. It’s not immediately obvious from the instructions which way round they should go as the pictures are so small.
As far as ventilation is concerned, during the hot weather we pointed a fan at the side of the crib and there was no difference to the air temperature inside, suggesting that the fabric still doesn’t promote air passing through the mesh fabric. Your child can sleep in the crib and can be cuddled and breast-fed comfortably, thanks to the dropside.
