Pictures of a co-sleeper I made for my son. Made fron oak and walnut.

The idea is while he will still be nursing several times a night he can sleep safely next to the bed but not in it.

Wow. I thought my isometric drawings were passable. Apparently not. Nice work all around. Congrats on the little one.

Nice design and a great idea. After a few months it can be converted to a changing table. Congratulation on the new addition to your family.

That is very nice. I really like the design and it could easily be transferred to other projects. Great idea on the sleeper. I have seen too many situations that did not turn out well when infants and parents sleep together.

Very nice. I see that this is your first child (congratulations) so you may not appreciate how much sleep this will save you and your family. A beautiful idea, beautifully done. -Jack

Wonderful piece of furniture, and a great idea to keep the young one close for feeding/cuddling and still
have everyone able to relax and sleep. Thank you for sharing.

Thanks for the feedback. It has worked great for us thus far. I’m sure we’ll get more use out of it yet even if he isn’t sleeping in it. Now off to finish the crib.

Have your say...
