When you put your baby down to sleep or nap in her cot¯ always lay her on her back to reduce the risk of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome. Refrain from using a pillow with your child until at last two years of age and keep toys with small parts or elastic cords out of the cot. Always leave the drop sides locked in the up position and lock any rolling casters as well.
Newborns spend most of their time sleeping¯ sometimes as long as twenty hours a day¯ so choosing the right cot is an extremely important decision. Cots are available in many styles and designs¯ making it easy to find just the right color to match your baby`s nursery furniture. Most infant cots have sides that drop down to make it easier to pick up your baby and some models will grow with your child¯ transforming into a toddler bed when your child outgrows the cot.
Make sure every component of your cot is sturdy and firmly attached. Check the bars¯ the mattress base¯ and the drop sides¯ as well as any other panels or pieces for stability and for protruding knobs or hardware that may catch your infant`s clothing. The mattress should fit snugly inside the cot¯ coming within at least 25mm of the sides of the cot. Any paint used on the cot should be lead‐free to prevent future learning delays and neurological complications.
