Attention moms to newborn babies and toddlers of under 14 months
Discover how to grant your little one the advantage of co-sleeping in a simple and safe way, without having to completely reorganize your bedroom
As shown by numerous researches by developmental specialists from around the world, sharing a bed with his or her parents, has a relaxing and calming effect on a baby – especially during the first year of life.
In the western modern society it has become conventional for babies to be separated from their parents during slumber – either in a separate bed or in their own room.
On the other hand, throughout history, and even today in many cultures, parents share their beds with their babies has been the rule rather than the exception.
Co-sleeping allows for a direct connection and affinity between parents and child – especially at that young age.
For your little one, hearing your heart beats, feeling the warmth of your body and your breath this close to his or her tiny body, brings up pleasant memories and sensations form the womb – which helps create an environment of safe relaxation during sleep.
Is it safe though?
Many parents, who like you understand the benefits of co-sleeping, have expressed their concerns that if they sleep with their baby in the same bed, they might hurt their tiny unprotected baby if these parents toss or turn in their sleep.
These apprehensions are of course understandable. However, with Mitata, you can enjoy the best of both worlds, by allowing your baby to benefit from the advantages of co-sleeping and still know for yourself that your tiny beloved is safe and protected.
What is Mitata?
Mitata is a portable cot and baby mat, with thick stoppers on both sides (see images), which protect your baby from rolling out of the cot.
In fact, you can just place Mitata in the middle of your bed, or any surface that is wide enough, without worrying about the little one rolling off that surface when you’re not looking.
* Of course, you should take every proper precaution before placing the portable cot, that the surface is sufficiently wide and stable so that both the cot and the baby are safely positioned.
** NEVER leave your baby unattended on a narrow or unstable or otherwise unsafe surface!
The stoppers on both sides of the Mitata protect and shield your baby from motions and tossing you or your partner may do while you sleep, so that you all can enjoy a sound and safe sleep together.

Read one of the reviews we received on Mitata
“I didn’t want to buy a crib so this came in really handy for my little one to sleep with me at night. During the day it was great too because it is portable I just carried him wherever I was in the house and he just stayed quietly on it. One of the best gifts I got.”
