Bedside cribs, babies’ highchairs and why they’re living much longer

It’s a given these days that new parents have to multitask to even have a chance of managing their busy schedules. But here at Knuma, we’re helping busy parents ourselves by creating products that are brilliant at multitasking too. Products like the Connect Highchair and the Huddle Bedside Crib are becoming increasingly popular as more and more savvy parents are using their space and their budgets far more wisely.

Why multifunctional baby products are winning more parents hearts:

Multifunctional baby products are better value for money

When you think of all the things you need as a parent and add the cost up for each of those items, it all adds up, very quickly. When you consider that it costs, on average, around £230,000 to raise a child to the age of 21*, the sooner you can start saving on that, the better! And when you also consider the Knuma Connect highchair can be used up to the age of 6 and the Knuma Huddle bedside crib to the age of 12, it’s clear to see better value in the purchase decisions alone. The fact they change into completely different objects with other uses such as desks, chair and benches provides even more value.

Multifunctional baby products are a better use of space

Parents know more than anyone how quickly rooms and then houses can become cluttered with furniture, toys and unsightly plastic. Pretty soon, parents can feel like their home no longer belongs to them. The advent of great quality, stylish furniture that transforms to perform different functions means that you need less space to do more things with your child. And the great thing about the Connect 4-in-1 highchair is that it can quickly be swapped between a traditional height highchair, a mid size high chair to fit under the dining room table, a desk and chair and a portable chair which can be quickly moved from room to room.

Multifunctional baby products grow with your family

This may sound strange at first, but outstanding quality furniture that adapts to your family’s needs becomes, over time, almost a part of the family; much-loved items that children and parents know well and use comfortably over years. And at Knuma we know children are individuals with ever-changing needs and preferences, which is why we create products that adapt to life-stages. Unlike other highchairs and co-sleeping cribs such as the Snuzpod or the Chicco Next2Me bedside crib, Knuma’s Huddle 4-in-1 and Connect 4-in-1, convert to 4 different modes and will see your children way past their toddler years.

The Connect highchair’s usefulness up to 6 years is excellent, but the award-winning Huddle has the added longevity of being able to be turned into a desk and bench for your child, almost until they become teenagers. As a bedside crib with 10 different heights and a handy storage shelf, your baby will be close by your side while they sleep in their own defined space, allowing you to comfort and feed your baby throughout the night with ease and peace of mind, the perfect remedy to the concerns associated with traditional co-sleeping. So if you’re asking, “How safe is bed sharing or is it okay to share a bed with your baby?”, the Huddle is a reassuring alternative. Often known as a co-sleeping crib, the multi-functional Huddle can also be used as a standalone crib with a removable bassinet, perfect for daytime naps around the home. When the Huddle is no longer needed as a crib, it can be converted into a child’s desk and chair, with no additional parts required.

And for parents looking to buy adaptive children’s highchairs or bedside co-sleepers, knowing the products have a greater lifespan than ordinary products is a great reassurance. And, when you hear what people say about the Huddle, it’s no wonder that so many think they’re among the best bedside cribs around: here’s just one example:

The Knuma Huddle is so much easier, I do not have to get out of bed:

“I love this bedside sleeper. I wish I had this with my first baby. Having my son so close yet in a separate place is fantastic. This has made night feeds so much easier, I do not have to get out of bed. The mesh sides allow airflow great for the summer or hot babies. It is height adjustable and can be a Moses basket, separate crib then a desk and chair so could be good value to boot. I could see this lasting more than one baby.”

Available in beech and white, Knuma’s Connect highchair is so versatile; it will see your child through the first six years. From weaning, as a full size highchair with a 5-point harness and adjustable tray, to a mid size highchair for use at the dinner table, to a toddler or child’s desk and chair, helpful for independent eating and when they start to bring their homework home.

But what about the Knuma Connect? Is that really amongst the best children’s highchairs? Here’s what just one satisfied customer has to say:

The Knuma Connect retains its usefulness for longer than an ordinary highchair:

“This chair has a European feel about it. It arrives flatpacked, but assembly is straightforward. The chair is versatile in that it is intended to perform a useful purpose throughout the lifetime of your child. I think the design of the chair is very good. It has a seatbelt so the infant doesn’t fall out, and the fact that it’s customizable means this item retains its usefulness for longer than an ordinary highchair”

Made from solid durable beech wood, the easy to clean, hardwearing surfaces will bring you peace of mind that your child is safe. And with a range of exciting accessories, in different colours, both the Huddle and Connect will fit beautifully into your home, whatever your style.
