Best Bedside Cot
Co-sleeping cots and bedside cribs are becoming increasingly popular. They allow you to keep your baby close, while following safety guidelines to have your baby in a separate crib or cot.
Effectively, you’re lying next to your baby, but you’re not sharing bed coverings.
As the side of the crib can be put down temporarily, this means you and your baby can maximise the breastfeeding and soothing benefits that proximity brings, while minimising the increased risk of suffocation and Sudden Infant Death Syndrome (SIDS) that’s associated with actual bedsharing.
This is especially useful if you’ve had a difficult birth and find getting out of bed to feed painful. Co-sleeping cribs attach to the side of your bed, so you can just reach over as opposed to getting up and walking anywhere. Some also double up as a moses basket, giving you more sleeping options away from the bedside.
The Lullaby Trust (formerly known as the Foundation for the Study of Infant Deaths – FSID) says the safest place for your baby to sleep is on their back, on their own sleep surface, in the same room as you, for at least the first six months.
