Arms Reach Original question

Hi Moms,

Are any of you using your Arms Reach Original for an extended period? I have the mini but my son is too big for it, but I'm still nursing at night and love having him close so I am considering buying the Original size off of CL. The product info says it can be use as a bassinet up to 30 lbs and playpen up to 50lbs.

I am thinking of using this for awhile, perhaps buying a better mattress for it and using in the playpen module, but I'm hopeing for some feedback before I go ahead with it

Does this sound feasible?

Re: Arms Reach Original question

I have the origional but have not used it yet - I do plan on using it an extended period of time... I am going to get a 4" foam thing to place under the mattress so I can just slide the little one over (instead of setting them down). I added a full size quilt that we were given for our wedding on top of the mattress to make it softer. I think you could get a better mattress - I heard the 'organic' arms reach mattress is softer but it is not in our budget

I am SO excited to nurse a little one without having them stay right.in.our.bed. the whole night and this is better then doing a side carried crib

I can tell you I LOVE the Arms Reach Mini, its so awesome just to pick him up and nurse him and lay him right back down. Also nothing beats waking up next to him laughing at me in the morning, I guess my hair is always a mess .

This is why I want to buy the larger one. I wish I thought of adding the foam underneath the mattress though, that seems much easier.
