I've just set this up in co-sleeping mode ready for baby to come home, and I am a bit puzzled as it's not what I was expecting. I was expecting a sort of 'expansion of my mattress', but if I line the bottom of the Chicco mattress up with my mattress as per the instructions, the baby's bed is lower than mine as the mattress is a lot thinner...if I line the top of the Chicco mattress up with my mattress there is a bar separating my bed and the baby's bed which cannot be removed as far as I can tell.
The whole reason I bought the Chicco is so that I can breastfeed in bed without having to carry the baby in and out to save my back, and it seems to be defeating the purpose. I imagined being able to reach over and scoop him up in my arms and put him to the breast, and I wouldn't be able to do that on either setting.
Am I installing it wrong? Or missing something? Or do I just have an over-romantic view of what having a co-sleeper would be like?
Or maybe an overly romantic view of breastfeeding in bed?
FTM so any tips appreciated!
