What is a playpen and what is it for?
It has two functions, one for sleeping and resting and the other as a playpen. It is a practical option for going on holiday, taking babies or children to a relative's house or having it at home as a playpen or cradle for playing and taking naps, its measurements are 120cm long by 60cm wide.
Thanks to its easy folding and compact enough together with its low weight make it easily transportable.
What is the co-sleeping cot?
It is a small cradle (minicot) that is placed next to the parents' bed and has a height very similar to that of the parents' bed and the sides can be lowered, thus allowing the baby to sleep next to his parents but not in the same bed but right next to it, as an extension of the bed, also during the day it can be used as a minicot and transported around the house thanks to its wheels, so that the baby can rest and sleep peacefully.
There are co-sleeping cots that we can adjust their elevation to adapt them to the height of the parents' bed.
Is it worth having a co-sleeping cot?
During the first 3 or 4 months it is interesting to have the babies in the same room as the parents, it is easier to keep an eye on them, give them their feeds and it favours sleep and rest for both the baby and the parents.
How long is co-sleeping used for?
It depends on the model of co-sleeping cot and also on the baby and the parents, what is important is that from 3-4 months onwards we put the baby to sleep in what will be his room, we are entering the period in which the baby realises where he is and with whom, he also gets used to it and this could lead to a problem for him and for the parents, as the child could start to protest and the rest at night could be truncated for the whole family.
However, to use them during naps, as we have said, it depends on the model, but normally up to 6 months of age there are no problems.
