The ONLY Eco-Friendly Bedside Sleeper on the market. You want the best for your newborn. That's why babybay offers an all-natural bedside sleeper made from solid wood -- with no toxic wood glues, cheap fillers, plastics, or other harmful chemicals.

Internationally, the babybay is used as a bench, play desk, changing table, and other innovative uses such as a dog bed!
