The Knuma Huddle+ Bedside Crib | Review


With Lilah being our third baby, there were not many items we really needed to buy during my pregnancy. One item that I desperately wanted this time around though, was a co-sleeper crib. I'd heard so many amazing reviews about them, and simply loved the idea of having baby so close to us at night. We were lucky enough to be sent the lovely Knuma Huddle+ Bedside Crib (in grey) to review. And as we've now been using it for over 10 weeks, I thought I'd share how we've been getting on with it!

There are a number of co-sleeper cribs on the market now, but the Huddle+ prides itself in being unique. It's 4-in-1 design means that it can be used once baby is all grown up too - a feature that I think is a fantastic idea! So as well as a co-sleeper, you can of course just use it as a stand alone crib (something we plan on doing before moving Lilah into her own room). The bassinet can also be removed and used separately around the house. And finally, once it's no longer needed as a bed, you can convert it to a child's desk and bench.

We are currently only using the crib as a co-sleeper, as Lilah is still too little to be napping on her own upstairs. But it has been oh so lovely to use over these last 10 weeks. During those very early newborn days, when night wakings were constant, it made getting up so much easier as she was right there next to us. And now she is sleeping a little longer at night, I love that if she stirs I can just reach my hand over to pop in her dummy, without having to really move and wake either of us up too much.

We haven't used the bassinet separately, as I personally find it a little too heavy to move around - our stairs are also quite thin so I wouldn't want to carry it up and down daily. I know it would be easy to do so though, as the bassinet just slots onto the frame.

The mattress (sold separately) is beautifully soft, and as the cover is made from natural bamboo fibres it is breathable and comfortable. Lilah looks comfortable while in the crib, and there is plenty of room for her to stretch out and grow. It is designed to be suitable for babies up to around 6 months, which I can definitely see happening! The Huddle+ is definitely much wider and longer than a regular moses basket, so I know we're going to get much more use out of it.

Another brilliant feature of the Knuma Huddle+ are it's impressive height settings. The Huddle has 10 different settings (up to a maximum mattress height of 70cm from the floor), which makes it one of the highest cribs in the market! We found it incredibly easy to find the right height setting for our bed, and actually overall the crib was relatively easy to put together. The provided straps make sure the crib is attached to the bed frame safely too, although I must admit we haven't actually used these. 

The Knuma Huddle+ currently retails at £219.95, which although seems like a big expensive, I believe is 100% worth it. Not only does it give you the beauty of safe co-sleeping, but it is a piece of furniture that can be used for your child well beyond their baby years. The award winning Huddle+ is also made from high quality wood and you can definitely tell it is a well-made and lovely looking item. Yes, maybe I wouldn't say it had 4 uses (I don't think we'd ever use the bassinet separately), but it is a perfect co-sleeper crib. I am just a little gutted we didn't have one when the other two were babies!

We received the Knuma Huddle+ Bedside Crib and mattress in exchange for our honest review. All opinions are honest and my own.
