Bedside Crib Review – The 4-in-1 Huddle comes out joint top in Mother & Baby Magazine!

As co-sleeping cribs are becoming more and more popular with parents, Mother & Baby Magazine has put some of the top brands to the test with real-life mums.

We are very pleased to announce that our very own Huddle 4-in-1 bedside crib came out joint top with the Snuzpod. Beating the likes of Chicco Next2Me and the Halo Bassinest, with a score of 11/15.



Bedside cribs allow the parent to have baby close to them at night without the risks associated with traditional bed-sharing. With the best co-sleeping cribs you are lying next to your baby and can have the cot-side down, but without sharing a bed with your baby -or the bed covers for that matter. And with the unique mesh design of the Knuma Huddle 4-in-1 bedside crib, you and your baby can still see each other even with the cot side up.



The Mums testing the Huddle scored us highly based on:Huddle Bedside Crib Video Shoot

  • The sturdy and stylish design
  • The fact that the Huddle converts easily into a co-sleeper (with the help of the handy zips)
  • The longevity of the Huddle (which turns into a stand-alone crib; and then later a desk for your child to use until the age of 12)

These are just a snippet of the reviews from the article; you can read the rest in the September 2016 issue of Mother & Baby Magazine


ÔÇ£This couldnÔÇÖt be easier tIMG_8930o convert to a co-sleeper – it just unzips. I love that the bassinet lifts off the stand and can be carried around the house. Versatile and worth the extra spend, especially as the desk feature extends its lifespan, making it better value for money.ÔÇØ Carly (12w)

ÔÇ£This crib can also be converted into a desk with chair when your little one outgrows it so itÔÇÖs a great investmentÔÇØ Mother & Baby Magazine (Sep 2016

Mother & Baby Awards Winner

Knuma Huddle is a big hit at 2016’s Mother & Baby Awards

Knuma Huddle 4-in-1 bedside crib in its different modesDesigning an alternative to the traditional Moses basket is one thing. Designing an innovative bedside crib that has four different uses and will be a firm family favourite for at least 12 years is another thing entirely.

So to have the Knuma Huddle 4-in-1 bedside crib recognised at this year’s Mother & Baby Awards is a huge delight for everyone in the Knuma team. It really does make all those years of late nights, hours and hours of crafting and numerous trade and consumer show appearances thoroughly worth it. Not to mention the fact that our lovable Huddle beat the likes of the Snuzpod Crib and the Chicco Next2Me bedside crib at the Awards.

And it’s no mean feat for Knuma Huddle to be on the podium at these awards, as the judging is carried out by real parents, whilst all baby products are rated for many different benefits, including user-friendliness, value for money, safety and quality. These awards always attract big well-known brands too, such as Stokke, Tommee Tippee, TENA and Cosatto, so Knuma is in great company.

And why are awards for mother & baby products necessary?

At Knuma, we believe these kind of awards are vital to mums, dads and prospective parents everywhere.

That’s because, for example, when buying a bedside crib, parents like to know their money is being spent wisely on something that works, looks good and above all, is safe. Especially useful to any one asking, ‘is co-sleeping safe?’ or ‘is it okay to sleep with my baby?”

On top of that, if you’re looking to buy the Knuma Huddle, it’s great to know that other people like you rate it highly, regard it well in terms of safety and, as an added bonus, families will get at least 12 good years of life from it. In fact, when you consider that with the Huddle, you’re in constant visual contact with your baby and can lower the mesh side down at any time to feed and comfort your child, it really does make you see why people think again about buying a Moses basket or sharing a bed with baby. And if you’re an expectant parent looking to buy Snuzpod or buy Chicco bedside cribs, you have a place online to go to see how these products compare.

That’s why you’ll find an award-winning Knuma Huddle bedside crib at a show near you: we love what people say about our great-looking alternative to co-sleeping and we love giving people the opportunity to compare and see just why mums, dads and the little ones love the Knuma bedside crib, not least because there’s another dozen years or so of life in the Huddle as a stylish children’s desk and bench.
