Travel cot from birth?

Apr 19th, 2017, 20:37 PM   #1
 
Hi everyone,

I'm having my first baby (6 months already!) and I can't decide on a suitable bed for him while he sleeps in our bedroom. I have been looking into if travel cots that has bassinets are suitable for newborns. I like the idea of being able to use it straight away and when he starts being able to sit up etc. I've seen mixed views. Some people say they are fine to use from birth as long as you get a proper mattress. Others say they're not suitable as a permenant bed. I have a cotbed for whe he's old enough to sleep in his own room.

Please help! So confused!

I wouldn't. I had both and I still use my cotbed nearly 4 years on. Its one of them cot to toddler bed ones. And they have three positions well four kind of.. but usually normal cots have a middle height so you don't have to do much lifting once they start to sit upright. With a travel cot it's right at the bottom straight away. Once they get upright and that's a ball ache for your bed. Cotbed that transition to a toddler bed are best value for money in my opinion. I won't be getting rid of mine anytime soon x
