After things are settled in hospital, it is time to bring your little miracle home. It is totally natural to feel anxious and overwhelmed when you get ready for the first night home with your baby. That’s what most parents feel.

Here is where we make it easy for you with our bedside sleeper to make your first night more peaceful and calm.

Easy breastfeeding

One of the things you will find surprising on your first days with your little one is how frequently they get hungry. Newborns might want to eat as often as every 2-3 hours. We make the night-time breastfeeding easy for you with our co-sleepers

Thanks to the its easy slide function, you don’t even have to move from the bed. You can easily bring the sleeper closer to you, breastfeed your little one and soothe her back to sleep. 

Get more sleep

Bedside sleeper means fewer bedtime hassles! Both you and your baby will often get more sleep when you keep your baby in the bedside sleeper. Whether you need to feed, change a diaper, or even the sheets in the middle of the night, all the essentials are within reach in Iora’s large storage basket. 

This means you don’t have to move too much and can easily handle the necessary changes within minutes, which leaves more time to sleep for you and your baby.  

Reduce night-time danger

Night-time is when most sudden infant death syndrome cases happen; but the latest research shows sleeping in the same room with your baby reduces the risk of SIDS by as much as 50% [AAP]. 

Experts recommend to use a separate cot/bedside sleeper close to you – not the same bed or sofa. Sleeping close to your little one supports breastfeeding and helps your baby to settle and feel safer during the night-time. 

Emotional connection

Our little one was cocooned in your womb for 9 months and they will surely be looking for the comfort and cosiness of their place. 

Staying physically close to your baby, keeping the skin-to-skin contact and cuddles will comfort them in this new world where they will discover all kinds of new sensations! 

And more importantly, you will wake up to your smiling baby! At the end of the day, it’s all about comfort – wherever you happen to be. 

Always close, always together

When you feel it’s time for your little one to move to its own room, you do want to stay connected and close.
