With platform beds being all the rage, there are very few co-sleeping situations that work in accordance with the oh-so-low bed height. After a few sleepless nights, the Donnelly's took matters into their own hands and made their own low-co-sleeping solution— would you believe it started out as a changing table?

This solution started out its life as a Sniglar Baby Changing Table from Ikea. Instead of installing the top shelf (and the rail that holds it up), it was left off and panels were made to slip over each post, creating an open sided sleeper that pulls right up to their Malm bed.

It's a fabulous hack and just goes to prove, that where there's a mother who isn't getting any sleep... there's a way!
