when do you put baby into a cot/ cotbed?

advice needed please!!
My daughter is 14 weeks old today and I am starting to think when should I put her into a cot. She is not a heavy baby, she weighed just under 13 pounds last tuesday.

The official advice is 6 months - but our daughter has been sleeping in her own cot in her own bedroom from 4 months.

Generally, I would say if you think you'll get a better night's sleep without her in your room/bed then put her in her own cot, but don't be scared to bring her back in if it doesn't work out first time!

Do you mean a cot in your room or in her own room? Like Polly says the guidelines are that they should sleep in your room until 6 months. Is she in a moses basket/crib at the moment? If so then you just need to move her to a cot when she outgrows it - ie she's touching the sides and it's distrurbing her sleep. We never used a moses basket/crib, just a co-sleeper cot which is roughly the size of a normal cot and she's been in there since birth.

i can't remember how old Isla was when we put her in the cot but i do remember she was very young. She slept with her arms stretched out so she was never that comfy in the moses basket.
The cot was in our room till she was around 8 or 9 months but that was more due to circumstances.

My dd outgrew her cot by 4 months so i moved her cotbed into our room and she was in there with us until last week. It was just a personal choice really to keep her in with us for longer, it's totally up to you.
As long as you have a monitor and can get to your baby quickly from your own bed then it's fine.

Thanks, I meant what age do you think she should go into cotbed but still be in our room. She can have her own room when she is 19!!!!!

Whenever you want to then - they can be in them from birth so whenever it suits you - or whenever she grows out of whatever she's sleeping in at the moment.

Hi Verve

If your LO is used to something like a moses basket it may be worth you putting that inside the cot for a few nights if you haven't already, it'll get her used to her new enviroment i.e. the bars before she moves in there properly.

Thats what i did with Nathaniel, he missed his moses basket at first, took him a while to get use to his cot, i think the moses basket made him feel more snuggled.

Hi,

Charlie has been in his own room in his cotbed since 9 weeks old. I was planning on keeping him in with us for 6 months but he was a very noisy sleeper and was quickly out growing the moses basket (he's a big boy!) I put him in his own room one night to see how he would react and to see how much sleep we all got and it was great. We've never looked back. (We have a small 2 bed house and his room is right next to ours, so he's not miles away)

We also have a cot bumper in the cot. He doesn't roll over yet so he's not wriggling around too much and likely to get squashed in it. It looks nice too!

My muchkin is just over 6 months and she first slept in her cot 2 nights ago! The first night I put the moses basket in there and last night she went in with her sleeping bag. She was ok, she's a good sleeper anyway but I thought she might find it strange but she was fine.
