You can sleep better knowing your infant is in arm’s reach.
TLB: What inspired you to start Arm’s Reach?
Sharon: As parents, we wanted to experience the bonding and ease of feeding but were concerned for the safety of the baby. We realized that there was a way to still have both, the Arm’s Reach Co-Sleeper® was born out of that belief. It allows the best of the two worlds – safe co-sleeping and easy breastfeeding!
TLB: What would you like TLB readers to know about Arm’s Reach?
Sharon: The safety and welfare of babies is our utmost concern here at ARC. We would like to have all Mothers and Babies have a positive, and safe, co-sleeping and breastfeeding experience while they use our Co-Sleeper® products. Our goal is to improve our society, one Co-Sleeper at a time.
TLB: What is your favorite part of co-sleeping?
Sharon: For 9+ months you carry your baby and you feel safe knowing that your baby is with you at all times. Then they are born. Co-Sleeping gave the peace of mind that our baby was right next to us and still safe and it sure made those nighttime feedings much easier and more enjoyable
TLB: Share how sleeping near their baby can help moms reach their breastfeeding goals.
Sharon: Research had shown that when Mother and Baby sleep in such close proximity their bodies tend to sync with one another. Breastfeeding becomes stressless. Mom is right next to her baby, tending to their feeding needs becomes second nature. It makes breastfeeding at night a more satisfying experience .
Sharon is giving away a Mini Arc Co-Sleeper® Bassinet to 1 lucky Leakie.
