Cot or co-sleeper or travel cot?
I do not have the master bedroom. Due to limited space in the bedroom, i am wondering if i can get a co-sleeper or travel cot/playpen instead for my newborn. Any advice?
I got a foldable playpen and a cosleeper as my baby prefers to sleep in the cosleeper somehow.
I bought a cot which is able to transform to toddler bed. My LO co sleeps with me but at least i know my money is well spent. When she grow she can still use the cot😊
Thanks for the suggestion! 👍
I‘be a very small house so I’ve bought a foldable travel cot that can convert into a playpen for my NB to safe space.
Co-sleepers are normally smaller and take up leas space, but that also means your baby will outgrow it more quickly. Playpens are bigger (about a metre long?), and these, in fact, are the “baby cots” provided in many hotels when you request for one. My daughter could sleep in it even at the age of 3 when in the hotel (she slept well 😁). You will need to get a good and firm mattress though, otherwise baby will sink in.Read more
Thank you so much for the clear explanation. I feel so much assured if i were to get playpen... 😊👍
- Hi parents! what are your personal views on giving your LO <6months? ive read it that it is dangerous and i caught my MIL giving water to my 1 month baby 🤯🤯 we keep emphasize not to give but she is those old school type said that we shouldnt believe dr and nothing had happen so far (she claimed all the kids she took care before were well) my concern is.. once i start working, my LO will be under her care. im in dilemma rn..i understand we too drink plain water back then in the olden days..but after doing some reading, i just dont want to take the risk. afterall its my child not hers. jialat la like this.
