First Look: The New Skip Hop Cozy-Up 2-in-1 is a Bedside Crib on Wheels

Being able to keep your baby close to your bed at night can be majorly helpful for all those midnight feedings and soothing sessions (you just reach over and pick them up!) But new babies sleep up to 17 hours a day, and a lot of that takes place during daylight hours. So having a bassinet you can move around your house for midday naps is also a win.

The New Skip Hop Cozy-Up 2-in-1 Bedside Sleeper and Bassinet is a combo deal that does both. Babylist Scout Mallorie tests it out in the video review above.

What It Does

Typically, you’d have to choose between a bedside sleeper or a bassinet. But with a drop-down side, you can slide the Cozy-Up 2-in-1 right up to your bed and use it as a bedside sleeper, or use the swivel wheels to move it around your home for living room naps and other impromptu sleep sessions.

There are a few other things this bedside sleeper does that Mallorie found especially useful:

  • Not all beds are the same height! So there are eight sleep-height positions built into the Cozy-Up to make sure it works with yours (from 25.7 inches to 32.7 inches).
  • The Cozy-Up 2-in-1 also comes with adjustable straps so that you can secure it to your bed when using it as a bedside sleeper (the wheels also lock for added safety).
  • The modern design and beechwood accents make this the kind of gear you won’t mind keeping out in your living room, even when guests are over.
  • While some bedside sleepers require a bit of muscle to drop the side, all you have to do here is press two buttons and then slide it down. The mesh sides also add breathability, and make it easier for you to check in on your baby.

You’ll just want to make sure there are at least four inches of clearance underneath your bed if you want this bedside sleeper to sit flush against your mattress. And of course make sure to keep any loose blankets away from the sleeper when it’s next to your bed.

Why You’d Want That

In the early months of parenthood, babies are still figuring out the difference between day and night. Which can mean a lot of midnight wakings and a lot of daytime sleeping. A bedside sleeper with a drop-down side can often mean the difference between waking up with your baby and getting up with your baby—which can help with C-section healing and make it easier for you to fall back asleep.

While most bedside sleepers stop there, what makes this one different is the added ability to use it as a regular bassinet outside of your bedroom—thanks to the lockable, swivel wheels. Because spoiler alert: babies will sleep pretty much anywhere. And sometimes you just want to keep them nearby when you’re watching TV, washing dishes or doing any of the other “while the baby sleeps” activities that aren’t…also sleeping.

So if you’re thinking about sharing a room with your baby, but want the flexibility to change your mind (all in the same day), the Skip Hop Cozy-Up 2-in-1 Bedside Sleeper and Bassinet lets you have your cake and eat it too—for just $200. Watch Mallorie’s complete video review to see it in action.
