How to keep kids safe at night with Side

Sharing is caring!

For the last 3 years of Alexis’ life, we have been using one of my favorite (and long-life) products, SIDE by Babyhome. Probably the one baby product we are still using to this day.


SIDE by Babyhome is a simple but effective bed side that is secure, beautiful and easy to install. It secures under the mattress via straps, features mesh walls for safety and has buttons that allow you to quickly pull it down and keep it out of the way, or lift and secure in the top position.

When I announced that I would like to take photos of the SIDE to Lexi, she instead suggested we do a video. “Let’s do a commercial, mommy!”

As much as I did not want to take hours of our precious Saturday to shoot, I thought it was good practice for her to do something completely on her own, get a taste of the creative process that happens in art. So we drew the storyboard she came up with, she figured out the wording and all her lines and what the commercial would look like and we spent a few hours shooting. She loved the final result I put together and I feel this is the beginning of something fun for her.

See the “commercial” for yourselves and let me know what you think, about SIDE by Babyhome and the video Alexis created

    Alexis is a pro! On the Side, it looks really sturdy no matter how your daughter lean on it.

      It is really sturdy. It wouldn’t break if a child rolled over. I don’t let her jump on it, but during sleep- no problems!
