Moms Are Going Wild Over This Co-Sleeping Hospital Bed (PHOTO)

Maternity wardAny mother who's delivered a child knows firsthand how much recovery can suck, especially those darn hospital beds. Between trying to find the energy to get up, and having an uncomfortable slumber -- before someone walks in (and wakes up your baby) -- there are not many options for new moms ... until now. Doesn't this hospital bed for maternity wards look awesome?


Now, I don't know who this mom and child are, or where this magical place is located (reportedly, it's somewhere in the Netherlands), but they look pretty comfortable.

Even though this photo was posted on the Facebook page BellyBelly - Pregnancy, Birth & Parenting over the summer, folks can't stop talking about it -- and who could blame them? Just the thought of having your LO nearby -- without the need to get up 24/7 -- sounds like a wonderful dream.

Of course, there are warnings to consider when you have your newborn so close -- including a pillow falling over the baby, and possible blood clots that can develop when you don't move for a long period of time -- but there has to be some way to make something like this, that takes those "what if" scenarios into consideration ... right?

Between diaper changes, nursing, getting up to pee, and just wanting to be close to my baby, I would've done a happy dance to have this in my hospital room.
