The Culla Belly Co-Sleeper has been a popular search on BuyModernBaby ever since I first posted about it in 2011. The transition from design to final product has been a challenge, and I had already given up on ever seeing these available until our newest advertiser, Elm Baby, contacted me and let me know that they now carry the Culla Belly Co-Sleeper in their online boutique. They have a personal relationship with the designers and distribute it directly from them.
Designed by Andrea Garuti and Manuela Busetti, one side of the bassinet unzips to open up onto the parents’ bed. The wooden base is secured under the mattress of the bed. The final design doesn’t have all the style of the initial concept, but this is frequently what happens in the transition from idea to reality.
The co-sleeper is available in seven colors: red, blue, green, orange, light blue, cream, and pink.
The Culla Belly retails for $600 and the stand is an additional $290.
I haven’t seen these in person, so I can’t tell you too much about them, but if you’ve been desperate for a more modern co-sleeper, this is what you’ve been waiting for. If you’ve gotten a look at a Culla Belly Co-Sleeper or if you own one, please comment and let us know your thoughts!
