Co-sleeping brings many benefits for parents and babies, especially in the first weeks of the little one's life. The mother is closer to her baby, she knows it is safe, and the baby simply seems calmer and sleeps better.

Read these tips on co-sleeping

Some parents choose to sleep together with their baby, which means that they either share the same big bed as adults, or opt for a co-sleeping crib that sticks to the parents' bed. The second option is always preferred and much safer for your baby. Thus, you can avoid accidentally injuring him when you return at night.

Proper co-sleeping will help you to caress your baby easily when he needs you and to feed him without getting out of bed, risking being very tired the next day.

Our advice on co-sleeping

If you opt for co-sleeping, make sure that the baby will have his crib properly attached to your big bed. We know that some parents choose to bring the baby directly to their bed, but this is neither hygienic nor safe for the little one. Keep the following things in mind:

- use a suitable co-sleeping cot for the baby (attached to your bed)

- make sure that in the baby's crib there are no pillows, sheets, beds or any other items that could become a danger for the little one or could overheat him.

- avoid leaving pets or other older children in the baby's crib

- make sure that the co-sleeping cot is well fixed and does not slide on the wheels (if it has)

- make sure that the baby will not fall out of the bed, nor that it will be caught between the mattress of his crib and the mattress of your bed.


Are there situations when co-sleeping is not recommended?

Yes. And it is important to know that there are these circumstances in which co-sleeping can become dangerous for the little one. Here are these situations:

- you or your partner smoke (even if you don't smoke in the bedroom)

- you or your partner drank alcohol or took drugs or sleeping pills

- the baby was born prematurely (before 37 weeks)

- the baby was born with a low weight (2.5 kg or less)

- never fall asleep on the couch or in the armchair next to your baby because this can increase the risk of sudden death in sleep

Breastfeeding the baby and co-sleeping

You should know that breastfeeding reduces the risk of sudden death in sleep, therefore it is not a bad idea to breastfeed the little one at night, when he is in his co-sleeping cot. However, if you feel that you are falling asleep while nursing, we recommend that you make sure that his crib is safe, without pillows, sheets or other objects. It is extremely important that you never accidentally fall asleep with your baby on a couch or in an armchair. If you are very sleepy, it is better to move the baby to a safe place.


Should I sleep with my baby or not?

Co-sleeping is a personal matter, so we advise you to listen to your instinct. Read all this information and make the best decision for you. However, if you choose co-sleeping, do not share the same bed with your baby, but place the baby in the cot or co-sleeping, next to your bed.

Can I put the baby in a babynest and sleep with him in the bed?

Not. This is not recommended by childcare specialists. If you still have to sleep with your baby in the same bed, make sure that the mattress is flat, firm and that there are no pillows, beds or other objects near you.
