This is the first review I am doing on this site, and it is a product which I purchased myself, it wasn’t sent to me for free and I am not getting paid for doing this. However it is also not going to be a massively in-depth or lengthy review because at its core this is a really simple product which just happens to be produced in a very cost effective, efficient and elegant way.
What is the Babymoov Cosydream?
This is a really unique sleep aid for babies suitable from birth to around 6 months, although the latter age of course depends on how quickly your baby grows.
It is designed to give your baby a safe level of support when sleeping on their back whilst also helping to reduce or completely prevent plagiocephaly (flattening of the back of the head).
The design is really simple being made up to just 2 parts. The first is a cotton covered memory foam base with a slight dip where the head rests and well as a raised surround which stops the baby rolling out, whilst the second piece is also a cotton covered memory foam crescent. This crescent attaches to the base using 2 pieces of velcro.
How does the Babymoov Cosydream work?
It’s easy… you lay your baby on it… job done!
For the end user it really is as easy as that. The only thing you have to do is to move the crescent so that when you lay your baby down, its head is in the little well, while the crescent sits just further down than their butt. This way the legs sit on top / over the top of the crescent which stops them moving up or down the bed.
The benefits of all this are:
- Preventing flattening of the head
- Reduces acid reflux
- Reduces stresses on the stomach muscles
- Keeps babies laying on their back and unable to roll over
- Stops them wriggling down and going under the cover
- Gives a comfortable sleeping base
- Keeps baby cool thanks to the breathable fabric
The nice thing about these is that due to their size and light weight they sit easily inside a crib, cob or even a lay flat pram (although they do also sell what is called the Cosymorpho travel cushion, which I would have purchased had I not already got 2 of the Cosydreams, so sadly I can’t review this product – click here or on the image below to see this product on Amazon) to stop them bouncing from side to side on a cobbled street!
Is there anything bad about the Babymoov Cosydream
I’ve banged on about how good this product is but is it perfect? As far as I am concerned it ALMOST is. The above coupled with the fact that at under £40 it’s an absolute steal make it a great product.
The only drawback is that sadly the cotton covers are not removable and there are no spare or extra covers available to buy for this product. What this means is that when, like my little Ripley has done a few times already, they puke, piss or crap on the Cosydream the whole thing needs to go in to the wash, putting it out of commission. As they are made of a memory foam base, this does mean that they don’d dry super quickly and can’t be tumble dried either.
As a result I have myself already purchased two of these so that I can alternate them when one is being washed (that’s how much I love this product), although I would much rather love to see some replaceable covers for this thing.
The only other drawback is that it’s not quite 100% escape proof either! But the only way they can move is up by hooking their legs on to the crescent and pushing up. This direction they cant go under the covers so it’s not quite the end of the world!
I honestly can’t recommend this product enough though! I swear by it and little Ripley loves it. When he is in it I sleep with total confidence and zero anxiety. Just put them in, tuck the blanket under their arms, down the side of the Cosydrem and then tuck the rest under the foot end… Simples!
