First things first, why should you get a co-sleeping cot at all? Well, this type of cribs are beneficial for two main reasons essentially:

  2. They save some space in your bedroom. Unlike other cribs, the co-sleeping cots are smaller and the fact that they are next to the bed make them obviously helps you save a little of space in your bedroom. Nevertheless, also consider that being smaller-sized, your baby might outgrow the co-sleeping cot quicker than other kinds of cribs.

How to choose a co-sleeping cot:

How to choose a co-sleeping cot:

  1. Choose a co-sleeping cot that fits the height of your bed.

    When you’re choosing a co-sleeper cot it’s crucial that you get one that’s adjustable to the same height as your bed, and that it actually fits your bed. Some will fit bed framed beds, rather than divan style beds, so make sure they are compatible.
    Also, make sure there is no gap between your baby’s mattress and your own, and that the crib can be securely attached to your bed.

  2. Consider if you will need to move around your cot or not.

    Co-sleeping cots are not easy to attach and detach. So if you plan to move the crib around, you might want to go for a regular cot bed, rather than a bedside crib.

  3. Easy to clean or easy to move?

    Here you can basically go for wood or fabric. The later ones are more bump proof and sturdy, but if they get stained, marks are more difficult to wipe out. On the other hand, wood bedside cribs are easier to clean. You just wipe the frame and throw the bedding and mattress into the washing machine.
