Clip On Cribs?

This is neat!  After having two babies by cesarean, I can tell you that this would have come in handy at the hospital!  

With both girls, I was encouraged to not pick the baby up.  I had to rely on other people (mainly my husband and nurses) to hand them to me.  

With my first baby in the hospital, I remember not wanting to be a bother.  Imagine for a moment that it's sometime between 1 and 3 in the morning at the hospital during the first night after we had the baby.  My poor husband is exhausted, sleeping soundly on the couch - much deserved since we just finished 30 hours of labor, a csection, and a long day of visitors.  Cue baby crying.  

I completely forget that the nurse is partially here to help me, and decide that I don't want to bother her.  If she happens to come into the room - that's fine.  But otherwise, there's no reason why Dan and I can't handle a crying baby, right?  Dan isn't responding to my loud whispers of his name.  I look for something to throw at him.  A pen.  A small notebook.  My waterbottle.  A pillow.  Nothing is working.  He is out.  So ... like any good mother, I pull her bassinet to me and I lift her out, as painful as it is.  Finally, I can feed her and she's happy.

I really could have used one of these in the hospital!
